Nice old gun that I inherited from my late uncle. I ended up getting quite a few other guns, but most of them are modern. Don't know all the details, so if someone wants to fill me in, I'd love to hear!
Anyway, this is a neat little gun. Single shot .22 black powder shorts. I think the rather mechanical breech is very neat, however that feature is one of the reasons this should not be fired (big weak point). There are lots of stamps on the beech, I recognize the oval one as the liege stamp (like the one on my pin fired revolver).
Looks great on the wall, which is the most important thing when you can't actually shoot it!
P.S. Still no firearms category?
