Obsolete Calibre Martini Cadet Rifle SN. 0854 ^
Obsolete calibre Australian .297/.230 MKV Martini Cadet Rifle in very good condition, with full working, tight action and very good bore. Matching numbers, BSA manufacture and with many Australian military stamps. The Martini Enfield first entered service with the British Empire in 1871 and remained in use with some colonial troops until the early 1920s. The large calibre .577/450 bullet could cause terrible injury at ranges out to 1800 metres and by all accounts the Martini could shoot accurately out to close to these ranges when used by British `Lifers’. They are still in use in some of the more arcane parts of the world and have even been recovered in Taliban weapon caches in Afghanistan recently! Obsolete calibre, no licence required.
