    Martini Cadet custom 219 zipper improved

    i bought this rifle last year. wanted to see if i am the fancy single shot kind of guy. i would rather stick to my contenders. that said i bought this rifle needing a bit of tuning. the scope base was a aluminum weaver that was improperly installed. i bought a one piece leupold base and redrilled the mount to fit the existing holes in the barrel. it fits well but not perfectly. that got the rifle on the target. i dug out a nice leupold 6-20 fine cross hair target dot for it and put it all together.the numbers dont match in the internals and took a little tuning to get it to eject well. i bought it and was told it was 219 zipper. that was an interesting day at the range. someone reamed it to improved and did not mark the barrel. i had to find dies which wasnt the easiest but i did. i have taken it out and shot it a couple of times but not enough to work up a load. i like the rifle but am planning my first real vacation and could take a longer one if i sold the rifle so i am putting it out there. i am not opposed to horse trading but would prefer a sale. i will pay shipping. it comes from an individual. if you need my ffl to ship it you pay the fee.
    it comes complete with dies including form dies and the scope. i will sell the rifle without the scope.
    it is not a perfect example but it is nice. its the only cadet i have ever owned. rifle is in ohio

    As much as I like it I'm not going to get down there any time soon. Somebody is going to love this little rifle I'm betting. Wish you were further north.

    Im willing to do some traveling. i like little road trips. been doing much more muzzleloading and every time i get into the safe i just move this one out of the way so it needs a better home where it will get the love it deserves.

    I'll give it some more thought.

    I was trying to treat you not being somewhere between Toledo, Findlay and Fremont as divine intervention. I'm just over the border in Adrian, MI and I work in Fremont, OH.

    40 degree i think. I will look at the dies but am reasonably confident.
    ok. i looked at the dies. they do not have a degree on them or the box. the part number is the generic
    custom order number. there is 2 form dies a neck size die and a full length size die and seat die.
    the cases look 40 degree to me.

    Understandable. I wouldn't expect you to travel that far.
