Default .22 identification

hey, i am currently in possession of a .22 caliber rifle. it is a rather old looking gun and has been passed down in my family for a VERY long time, there are faint markings on the barrel and butt, it looks like a star and a rainbow, with the text MAL above, it has a hexagonal barrel and a hammer fire mechanism. i belive that the gun may have originated from victoria in australia,
if some one could help me identify this rifle or help with any information it would be muchly appreiciated i have attached photos below...
cheers =D

I've got some mighty old books, but none have a designation MAL...or M. A. L., I would suggest joining for free http://www.gunandgame.com/forum/ and posting pictures of the gun in the Gallery section, then you can post pics here & there as well...between the two groups, someone will have an answer for you.
