I've purchased every martini henry part except the action which seems to be difficult to find. Does anyone have one that I could buy?
Doesn't that apply to Greener Cadets as well, Douglas? Though at least some of the Francotte Cadets ARE antiques, and I think some of the miniature Martinis in .450 (? - maybe .450, the .450 revolver round) were. All the ones i have seen (piccies only) were for New South Wales pre-Federation, and made by perhaps Braendlin.BSA Cadets are not Antique. They do need FFL for transfer.
Indeed.The 297/230 Francottes are 1898 or earlier,, thus antique. Greener Cadets, I am not sure. I do Greener barreled BSA's definitely not antique.
The .310 Cadet cartridge was introduce by Greener in 1900. So it would be reasonable to think a Greener .310 would not be an antique.
