On Sept.,2012 I went for a boat ride up the Grassy River to Whitewood Falls in Northern Manitoba Canada. As I was walking up to the falls I spotted something strange in among a lot of driftwood on the shoreline. I picked it up and it was an old 22. Once I had it at home I started cleaning it up. The barrel was plugged solid with mud and rust. It took about a month of cleaning and soaking and I got everything ready to shoot. On the receiver markings are RABBIT 22 long rifle. On the barrel there is a stamping number D9M. The stock is in poor shape badly weathered but you can make out blue flowers with large leaves on each side of the stock. Does anyone have any information about this gun? Year, etc.

Since you're in Canada, I'm going to assume that you've got a Cooey "Rabbit" single-shot .22lr rifle.
does it look like the one that's posted in this thread? http://www.thefirearmsforum.com/showthread.php?t=70294

Here's a little history on the Cooey company.

Can you post up some pics of your find?
Sounds like a neat story even if it winds up being just a wallhanger...and even more surprising that it might even be still shootable after who knows how long out in the weather.

And welcome to TFF!
