So as the title states show us your cadet.
So after the normal wait for approvals that is the norm in WA, I got to pick this one up today.
Put in service in 1909 and issued to Queensland. It is in very good condition and has the first series sights on it.
None of the screws have been butchered and the trigger housing pin has not had anyone confuse it for a screw.
The stock has the normal dings from being used but no large chunks have been taken out.
There is no pitting to the barrel and the rifling is great.
The big question is do I leave it completely as is or do I gently clean it up, metal work and clean off all of the old oil and grime from 111 years and re-oil it? What are your thoughts???
So now lets see yours.
