Default 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).

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

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.
