FEBIGER ARMS CO., MODEL #2,
of New Orleans, LA, 22rf, pump-only
, unmarked except for caliber, seial number is just under 7000, ca1909-1911.
Last offered by Baker Guns and Forging Co.
of Batavia, NY as their BATAVIA AUTOMATIC RIFLE, in their No. 4 1911 Catalog. Baker was financial backer and when Febiger failed in repayment they reclaimed all machinery and parts inventory. Sales of all 3 models ended after Savage Arms Co. threatened patent infringement suit. ALL models are difficult to find.
This old guy (probably 100 years old now) has beautiful graining in its walnut stock and great looking diamond checkering. No cracks, dents, scratches on any wood or metal. Overall would grade NRA VG. Mechanically perfect but bore needs a good scrubbing.
Got a bunch of old oddball .22s, mainly single-shots, but this is one of my favorite exceptions.
