This BSA Cadet Major is in what we call original condition. It has not been messed
around with or refinished any way. The metal work is slightly brown and grainy, the
photo etching is not visible. The breech mechanism barrel lock up is good, open sights
are original and again good. The stock has some surface marks and scratches but no
major cracks etc. A genuine and honest rifle.
This little BSA Cadet is in good original condition. The photo etching is not quite
visible on the cylinder but all the rest of the bluing is OK. Slightly brown. The
stock is good with a very nice clear BSA badge stamped in to it. Slight cracking
in wood on one side along the grain where it has started to dry out but we do not
think this would be a problem in the long term. The rifle shoots fine with a good
strong spring and all components seem to be original.
This BSA Cadet looks nice. The metal work has been refinished to a nice uneven semi
glossy black. The trigger guard is not the original one. The stock is good, it has
been rubbed down but its a nice piece of walnut and the BSA badge is still very visible
on the side (see photo). Apart from the trigger guard open sights etc seem to be
the original. A nice little rifle.

This item is sold on behalf of a third party so CAN be sent directly to you.
We are offering for sale on behalf of a third party this quite scarce pump up rifle.
We believe it dates from the 1970s and is a later model Setra. In fairly good condition,
the rear sight is unfortunately missing. The gun pumps and shoots fine although a
bit sticky opening the pump lever due to what might be slight rippling of the cylinder
slot. We also notice a crack visible in the metal of the pump head and as we said
it does pump and shoot fine. It is there fore sold as is. This is an example with
the rather neat auto rising safety catch which comes on automatically as you cock
the bolt then has to be pushed off. The stock probably been refinished the checkering
is a bit smooth. An interesting and unusual pump up rifle which we don’t see many
of at all. This one if you keep pumping you get a couple of extra shots from it but
we recommend limiting it to 6 pumps max. This is a post 1968 restricted valve example.
B and M
A truly superb example of the custom air makers craft. Fitted with a superb sculpted
walnut stock and a set forward trigger that works superbly. This rifle is in fair
condition. There is some very very light pitting or scuzziness to the metal work
bordering on rust marks and the stock has a couple of very light surface scratches.
The rifle has been used carefully and the marks are inevitable. Fitted with a screw
off silencer and adaptor. This rifle has the 25mm piston seal and a custom made spring.
It shoots at 11.3 foot pounds with superb consistency and has virtually no recoil
or sound. Fitted with a Tasco Japanese made 3-9x50 AG scope which is superbly clear.
The scope isin OK condition, missing its rubber eye piece and we believe the scope
turret caps to be not the correct ones. Some marks and a small dent to the very front
of the eye bell of the scope but the magnification works perfectly and the image
is very good. Fitted on to the block above the loading port where it all looks very
very neat. This was made by B and M modifications for a short period they later went
on to produce more bull pup Daystates and pre charged which would always prove an
easier prospect. Also fitted with an adjustable butt pad. This rifle is a pleasure
to shoot and use and is a collector’s item.
