It was a single shot, but how did you cycle the weapon? Was it a single shot, breach loaded model that broke open to eject the shell somehow? Or did it have a pump or a lever by any means, to eject the spent cartridge?
I ask because, believe it or not, I was just playing with an octagon bore, wooden stock, .22 caliber breach load weapon in the shop today. I don't remember the manufacturer, but it had a wood, shotgun style pump under the octagon bore that works to cycle the weapon. I don't know if it's what you are looking for, but a couple of the descriptions matched and got me wondering....
