Had the opportunity to purchase a nice Martini Cadet a couple of weeks ago and thought I would share a few pics. From what research I have done so far, this Martini Cadet appears to be a standard example of a Model 4 that was manufactured by Birmingham Small Arms Co.Ltd for the Commonwealth of Australia starting in 1909. This one is marked 8.11 which best I can tell this is the service date of AUG 1911. The stock is also marked with the CMF (Commonwealth Military Forces) and Q for Queensland issue. It was originally chambered for the .310 Cadet/Greener.The Cadet I purchased has been re-chambered for the .357 MAG. and seems fairly accurate for the few rounds I have fired through it. So I'm happy, I have a nice little piece of history that shoots well and was not all that hard on the pocket book.
