I have found that some were made under contract in Brazil (and had different calibers available.)
"Rosa Comanche" is the name they used. And for commercial sales, they had to produce in a caliber that was not used by the military or national police.

As usual, y'all have to have the old man show up. Sheesh!

You have a Spanish copy of the very rare 4.49 mm SHOTGUN. This is a smoothbore, and fires a single pellet. A real challenge on the Sporting Clays range. Made from 1946 to 1946.

The originals were produced for a very short period of time, due to morals charges being brought against the creator- Fauntleroy "Red" Ryder. He was convicted of contributing to the deliquency of a minor- his companion, "Little Beaver" Horowitz. This came to light when Little Beaver enagaged in a shooting spree at his college, the Indiana Institute. He attacked the sign in front of the building, and shot out all the I's.

The 1493 Armalite was only available in a left handed model.

What we have here is... failure- to communicate.
