Need help ID'ing make of old .22 rifle
 
I have an old .22 single shot bolt action rifle that my dad and late brother owned. A few years ago when dad went into a nursing home, I took the rifle home with me. No markings or #'s are on it. The trigger and bolt are chrome in color, and trigger gaurd is thock black metal. Also, there's only one screw on stock to take it apart.

Is it magazine fed? And are you sure theres no numbers at all even on the bottom of the barrel?

MA-Scotsman 01-12-2012 05:23 AM

Single shot, no mag. As for the bottom of the barrel, no didn't see anything. I believe my dad bought this late 1950's early 1960's too.

It looks like all of the old marlins i have ever seen. Or possibly an old h&r(now owned by marlin). They are common beater guns for farmers and people that wanted a pest gun. I would go online to marlin/h&r websites and search the database for one similar to it. If you really want to im sure you can get someone from the company on the phone to help you out. By the way H&R is Harrington&Richardson and i belive they are out of Mass? Very old American company now owned by Marlin. Good luck finding out let me know what happens :)

Can you post some better pics of it? Like closer up pucs of reciever and barrel side by the rear sight?

If made before 1968, will not have a serial number (1968 Gun Control Act). Please get some close up pics of the action, and any writing on the barrel.

Could this be a Remington Model 33?

Thanks everyone, found the name partialy worn off its a JC Higgins 103.18, based on the Marlin 100. Need to have the stock refinished and find a buttend for it. Can anyone tell me if I can put a scope on this?

I'm disappointed C3.

Not that it WONT have a serial number, it MAY NOT have a serial number.

My H&R American Double Action was an early model. Had a 5 digit serial number.
