    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

    This is a Baracky Obamy special unicorn model rifle! Don't worry about finding ammo for this beauty, it doesn't need any!!!! Just pull the trigger and it wafts pretty, pretty posies to all the good children around the world......

    Blech, I need a drink after that....

    Sounds like an interesting rifle. It would be nice to see the pics.

    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. :)
