    Has anyone ever thought about making the rifle from the Day of the Jackal movie? Maybe start with a youth .22?

    The novel claimed it was based on an American bolt action. The cartridges appeared to be
    .22 magnum rimfire. The gunsmith noted the hollowpoints
    were filled with mercury to make them expand explosively
    on impact.

    The only other rifle I've seen like it was a customized AR-7
