Has anyone ever seen one of these before??
Hey guys. Newbie here from Maine. Well, I figured I'd try to get some help on this old Winchester 22LR rifle thats been dogging me for years. This gun was givin to me by my grandpa several years ago. He told me it was givin to him long ago by his father who originally used it to shoot hogs on the farm. I've looked everywhere on the internet for info. But there is no evidence that this even existed, I can't even find a photo of one. Aside from all that, It accually shoots very well, And is suprisingly very accurate. I still use it ocassionally for rabbit hunting. It has a really unique spring loaded bolt that you pull back.
The model is 02-22. It shoots shorts, longs, and extra long. And is patented in 1899. The photos show the rest. If I could get any info on this, It would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, - Brad
