I picked it up off a table and looked it over. It was very lightly used. I pulled the magazine tube out of the buttstock to make sure it wasn't bent or dented and while I was looking over the tube I sat the rifle down on the table on the butt and when I picked it up there was a live round on the table. It appears that the last time it was unloaded someone took the magazine tube out and let the rounds drop out of the magazine but the front one was stuck and didn't fall out till I bumped the gun on the table. It was just sitting there in the rifle waiting for someone to pick it up, cycle the bolt and pull the trigger. If I had retracted the bolt to check the chamber I may have seen the round ready to be fed but maybe not. Remember ALL GUNS ARE ALWAYS LOADED. ALWAYS!
I didn't know Taurus made a copy of the 63. I remember my grandpa had one of these and one of the old .22 Auto rifles. I never did get to shoot either.

My grandpa had a Belgian one too! How neat. His is the one my Dad learned to shoot with. They're beautiful and a sweet shooter for sure!

Very cool! Do you just use it to target shoot with or do you hunt with it too? I'm interested how it'd do on small game.

my father still has the one he bought in 1968 or 1969. his is also marked Made In Belgium. sweet shooting rifles. when i was much younger before my father bought me my first 22 rifle, his Browning was my squirrel hunting rifle. with the little 4 powered scope that was on it, that rifle would bring the squirrels home! i had the opportunity a couple of years ago to put a new scope on it for my father, it still hadthe scope that dad put on it originally, but was getting a little foggy inside, and it was the first time in about 30 years since i had shot it lst. it was still dead on accurate.
