Checked with my cousin. The gun was given to his Dad 1922. I was the last one who fired it in about 1975. I was also the last one who cleaned it, about 1975. I told him to have a gunsmith check it before he shoots it.I learned on a single shot bolt action .22. The gun was 30+ years old when I first shot it. My cousin still has it though it may be 40 years since it was fired.
