    My father bought a .22 single shot bolt action rifle today and we were interesting to learn more about it. After a few hour looking around on the internet I could find nothing that matches it. So in hopes of learning what exactly it is I am posting it here.

    Remington single shot .22 rifle
    Bolt action
    Octagon barrel
    Rear adjustable sight
    Safety on back of bolt

    On the barrel:
    top just in front of bolt, Remington trade mark
    left just in front of bolt, .22 SHORT or LONG
    top just in front of rear sight, REMINGTON ARMS - UNION METALLIC CARTRIDGE CO.
    Under barrel just in front of stock, J 284060

    What is throwing me off is the octagon barrel, at first I thought it was a 510 or a 44 but I cannot find one with a octagon barrel.

    I have some pictures but cannot upload them to my image shack account right now as I forgot my password and am having it retrieved for me. I will try and post some images later.

    Any help would be much appreciated. Thank you.
