Trying to Identify a rifle
I bought a rifle from woolworths 30 years ago. It was a 22 cal single shot twist open that ejected the shell with a pump action when open.
I remember for some reason it being called a wildcat, Dont know who made it but it cost me about 20 bucks or so.
It had a tubular frame with a single spring bolt.
Kind of looked like this below.
I have modified this pict but it was somewhat similar
Anyone have the correct name and model for this rifle?

Hop over to the Introductions section and let us know a little about you.

I'm sure someone will be along soon to help you out IDing your 22.

My 22 rifle experience relates only to my Western Auto Supply Revelation 120.

Looks like but there is no eject pump.
There is also supposed to be a plastic infill in the stock tube. Yours looks better made.

A 50+ year fascination with all things that go boom, a fair library of reference
books, a memory that's too good at times, and the ability to twist Googles
tail until it coughs up what I want. That and thinking that wandering the aisles of a gun show for an afternoon is FUN.:)
