Since this lttle gem is from just after the turn of the century and ended production in 1935 (I believe) the powder they used in the 22 rimfire cartridges was more like black powder. I have one in pristine condition with original stock (pinewood). 22LR are too powerful nowadays with the newer gun powders and it blows back the fall block and expands the casing in the chamber making it difficult to remove the shell. I use strictly 22short in mine and it is dead accurate at 25 feet with no problems.
