    The rearsight is the give away, fitted to the BSA model 4b, specifically made for the Australianicon contract......70,000 Cadet Martini's, referred to as the 2nd pattern BSA.
    The rear sight should say....BSA Patents Nos. 8419/1910, 22681/1905, so if this is on the sight, 1911 would be correct, if only the early date, then possibly 1907.

    Important Patent info which, if you had the time, you could look them up at the relevant Patent Office one hopes.

    As the later patent date is 1910, your rifle was made after that date, being the 60,888 of 70,000 rifles made under the NSW contract and issued in 1911
