    The following is provide courtesy of Mr. Graham Greene of W.W.Greener http://www.wwgreener.com and is for the Assembly and disassembly of Greener Martini's


    quote: Dear Mr Dickens,




    Attached are four separate sheets covering the instructions for the W W Greener GP Mk I. The GP Mk II differs slightly in that there are circlips retaining the pins instead of keeper screws and the associated parts are not quite the same since they accommodate these circlips instead of the keeper screws. If you would like the same sheets for the Mk II please let me know. The W W Greener Martini Action Police Guns were again very similar as were the many different W W Greener Martini Action rifles made for target practice, sporting purposes and the military. Some spare parts are available for the GP Mk II which was last made in 1998.


    While my book (see attachment) does not provide instructions for disassembly or reassembly it does provide details about all the various models of Greener guns made including Martini action shotguns and rifles.


    Best regards


    Graham N. Greener

    Default Disassembly/Assembly of Martini Henrys & Greeners

    Disassembly/Assembly Nepalese Gahendra MH


    The very first thing to is take the cleaning rod out, put a piece of metal in the hole in the cleaning rod











    Then turn the cleaning rod as you pull on it very gently

    Some of the cleaning rod are to long to line up with the notch on forearm tip and you could push the cleaning rod stop into the receiver .
    Cleaning rod stop looks like this











    That why some of you can't cock yours, and I don't advise cocking them anyway until they are clean up you could brake something in the receiver


    I sprayed everything down with WD-40 use want ever you prefer






    Next

    Take something sharp, I use a dental pick and clean out the screw slots






    take the right size screw driver put it the slot , take small braes hammer and give a light smack then try to tighten the screw just a little then back it out




    You may have to go back and forth, but it will come out






    Next
    Take a brass punch and punch out the pins



    Drive it half way though then take a pair of vise grips and while twisting pull






    After you get the 2 barrel bands off and the 3 pins out
    Take the muzzle end of the forearm and gently pull down then push back up gently rocking the forearm until you can pull on the back of the forearm completely down and off




    Then take the screw out of the fore arm tip


    Take the tip off


    You might as will take off the cleaning rod stop

    After that take off the stock screws and but plate


    take rubber mallet and break the bond on the stock and receiver



    if you can get it off good if you cant no problem

    next is the receiver screws

    Clean the heads of the screws up , there is one screw that is a retaining screw once you get it loose line the open end up to the lever screw and loosen the lever screw


    once you get all the screws loose you can drive them out




    Now wiggle the stock and the let the bottom fall out


    And take the stock off

    After all the screws are out every thing should come out of the receiver



    The I put the small parts in a ultrasonic cleaner filled with diesel fuel , but can put your a pan of anything that will clean the parts up



    Now clean your stock up I don’t care want you use to do this with, it’s your rifle

    Ok
    Let’s put it back together


    Put lever catch and the trigger on



    Put trigger spring on




    Put the hammer spring on





    Do not put sling swivel on like I did



    The next thing is the hammer extractor, and lever
    They line up like this









    Slip the hammer spring under the hand on the hammer







    Pull the lever down



    Insert the breach block



    Now put the sling swivel on



    Hope this helps, look for updates

    fixing broke Gahendra MH firing pin

    The first thing I did was clean the hammer and grind down the face




    Then I line both of the up in put them in a vise



    After they lined up I put a pilot hole in it



    Then I took a .124 drill bit and drilled half way though the head of the hammer





    Then took the bit out reverse it, in the hole I just drilled




    Then I chuck it up in my bench ,motor and taper it in the middle with a file




    Then I heated up the drill bit with a torch and bent the drill bit to the angle of the other firing pin



    I also silver solder it in place,

    Then took it out the vise



    Then trim it up







    you may need to get a parts gun, from IMA

    Dixie gun works and order a tp0441 or a tp2300

    there both the same spring








    straighten spring, widen hole in spring then ether tap the spring hole to the thread of the screw or make lager than screw , put a nut on the bottom of the spring, if you didn't tap the spring put another nut on the top, you may have to grid some relief in the lower nut so the trigger return spring , now if you had to put a nut on top you will probably have inlet the stock for the nut




    follow directions for spring steel
