    I've just purchased a little single shot .22 and can't find any info on it. It is stamped "made in italy" and "fillietta" on the side opposite of the bolt, and right on top of the barrel it's stamped sovereign. I know of sovereign arms, but can't find much of anything about Fillietta. Just curious if anyone had some info.

    Well, the name is actually F. LLI. PIETTA. Notice the dots and the spaces? This is an Italian company that makes historical reproductions, mainly of black powder firearms.

    Thank you. I looked at their website and this gun doesn't really match the caliber of craftsmanship they are doing now. It's definately an older rifle but in good shape. This should get me started though.
