Can anyone recall what .22 had a forearm that the tip would hinge down and also you could either shoot it semi-auto or very fast. I know I remember shooting one years ago but for the life of me I really can not recall what brand of rifle or model.

Mossberg made several models with hinged fore-ends.

AntiqueDr this was about 40 years ago maybe, what I can recall it had a selector also.

The Mossbergs are that old and older, but no full-auto selectors....

You're probably thinking of the Mossberg Model 352 Carbine. Semi-auto, 7 shot clip (box magazine), hinged forearm.

I had one of these, and it was a sweetie!

I've got the Mossberg 352 KB, which fits that description. Mine is MINT condition, just like when I got it for Christmas back in the late '60's. Nice accurate rifle; I'll see if I can post a pic in the next few days.

Only problem I've had with it is that it EATS firing pins; after a certain amount of rounds, the firing pin breaks at the little "notch". I've replaced the pin several times now, and I have a few spares that I keep...

I have the 352 KB model and love the rifle(was given it by my father) and am having the same problem with firing pins breaking. In the last year I had it replaced twice. Since it cost between 80 - 100 dollars to have done I was wondering if someone could tell if it is very difficult to replace myself? I have found the pin for less than 20 bucks so I could save alot if I could do it myself.
