    History

    The Martini Cadet is a centrefire single shot rifle produced in the England by BSA and W.W. Greener for the use of Australian military Cadets and Citizen Military Forces (CMF) Based on a miniature version of the Martini Henry. it was internally different. Chambered for the .310 Cadet also known as the .310 Greener, they were also sold to the public as the BSA No.4, 4a, 4b and 5 in other calibres like the .297/230 and .22 rimfire. The rifles will often chamber the similarly sized .32-20 Winchester and fire with some accuracy. However the 32/20 is actually 0.312 cal and the 310 is 0.323 cal. Due to this 10 thousandths difference the accuracy of a .32/20 round cannot be guaranteed.
