I have one of these, still perfectly serviceable. It was the rifle my father taught me to shoot with back in 1966 or 1967. It is a single shot, bolt action. It was used to hunt squirrel and was accurate enough for a seven-year old to take game with. After stumbling across this on the internet, I will get mine out of the safe and clean it and take it to the range next time I go. Good memories.
