a really weird rifle
I was at a gun show Sunday and I came across something that I had never seen before. It was a trappers gun (according to the seller) that was made by Bauer and was supposed to be extremely light. It shot a 22 round and weighed maybe 2 1/2 lbs. It was a single shot. You loaded it by twisting the barrel and putting a single round into the chamber. It had no wood on it.
The break down was cool because you pulled back something that looked like a trigger and then doing something else to make it finish coming apart. Half of this process is also how you loaded it.

I have been unsuccessful in my google efforts to find this gun. My father seems to think it is about 100 years old. Rather than that, I have no clue what it is.

Can someone give me an identity on this weapon? I also would like to know how much one costs. This one was only 185$ and in pretty good condition (no rust or anything).

Bauer "Rabbit." Made in the 1970s.
Formerly the Garcia "Bronco."

As stated this was built @ 1970's by Garcia and called the Bronco. They also built one in 410. A great great idea as when a person is honest with himself, most of us arent good enough with a handgun to bet our lives on when you are talking about using it to kill small game to survive. Unfortunately quality was poor, a major no-no when you are talking about a survival senerio.
