Identify a 22 pump
This is my first post here. I dont want to waste anyones time asking what its worth tho.
Anyway its a hammerless 22 pump that resembles a 1903 Savage. Some big differences. Its a round barrel, takes only short cartridges and the clip looks like but much smaller than a 1903. Receiver is similar, but more square on back instead on the rounded shape. It has a rectangular block with a "S" stamped in that pops up on top of receiver when the slide is pulled back and breech is open. The frame has two tangs that butt stock mounts, very similar to Marlin 1891-1897 lever action along with nearly identical straight butt stock. Buttplate is plastic with no markings. The foregrip is short and smooth that is retained by only a pin thru slide arm. There are no markings or manufacturers name anywhere that I have found with exception to "22 CAL SMOKELESS CTG" on barrel in front of receiver. The safety is similar in shape but not the same as 1903. It is a take down and breaks apart nearly identical to the Savage line of pumps. Trigger guard is very similar to 1903. Bolt is similar in size and shape but does not roll up and lock closed like 1903 or 1925. I have several 1903, 25, 29 model pumps and this one has a lot of similarities to them, but looks more like another manufacturer that was copied. The lettering and numbering does not match the other models. Serial number is 34XX located on bottom tang. I cant find any good pics of a 1909 or 1914 that have any detail or decent description, so came here for some input. Thanks for any help.
