Can anyone identify this rifle?
It is a single shot, rolling block, rimfire, that is over 100 years old, I think.
It belonged to my Dad, who was an avid small bore rifleman who competed Nationally, back in the late 30's & up till WWII.
I have had it tucked away for many years, and it is in the same condition now that it was back in the early 1940s.
The bore is about 8.5 mm. or .335", and it is definitely a rimfire. the barrel is 18-3/4", and the rifle is 35" in length overall. the stock is wood, either walnut or Maple, I think.
There are no visible stamped letters or numbers on the gun, but I have never taken it apart to see if there are any internally.
The bore is bright, and rust free.
I've never made a serious effort to find out what this rifle is, but those who I have asked; have never been able to identify it, and the books that I have looked at pertaining to antique firearms have never shown anything like it.
If anyone does know what this rifle is, or knows of someone who might know;
I'd sure appreciate any info that you can provide.
