W W GREENER 310 CADET

£725.00

The .310 Cadet, also known as the .310 Greener, or the .310 Martini, is a centerfire rifle cartridge, introduced in 1900 by W.W. Greener as a target round for the Martini Cadet rifle.[2] Firing a 120 grain heeled lead projectile at 1200 ft/s the round is similar in performance to the .32-20 Winchester and many rifles may chamber both rounds with some accuracy.[3]

The round was used in cadet rifles in Australia and New Zealand after early 20th-century Defence Acts. In New Zealand, after the start of the Boer War, a cadet corps had been started; by 1901 it was recommended that membership be compulsory. 500 Westley-Richards miniature Martini–Henry rifles were available by October 1902 (Auckland Star), and 5000 by April 1903 (Star). Such rifles gained popularity in AustraliaNew Zealand and the United States when thousands of Martini Cadet rifles were sold by the Australian government after World War II

THIS PARTICULAR RIFLE IS IN EXCELLENT CONDITION, WITH VERY CLEAR MARKINGS ALL ROUND.

RIFLE HAS AN EXCELLENT BORE, PROBABLY ONE OF THE BEST RIFLES I HAVE HAD OF THESE VERY HARD TO FIND RIFLES
