I attended the Calgary gun show, April 3-4, searching for a Ross Cadet. There were 6 that I was able to find, 5 for sale and 1 being displayed as part of a private collection. The asking prices of the 5 available Cadets ranged from 350$ to 1100$.
350$ full stock commercial model; receiver drilled for aperture sight
400$ full stock military model; stock varnished, deep corrosion on barrel and receiver
450$ full stock commercial model
900$ full stock commercial model
1100$ full stock commercial model
The 400$ one was the only military Cadet; the others were commercial Cadets, all with full length stocks. The 350 and 400$ examples were, in my non-expert estimation, mortally wounded in the sense that either the stock or metal parts were beyond restoration due to Bubba’s heavy hand or gross neglect. The 900 and 1100$ examples were in exceptional condition but out of my price range. I bought the one in the middle of the group.
