    Sorry, no pix- when you post, use the paperclip icon just to the right of the white smiley face on toolbar right above where you type.

    I got one of those at an auction for $100, sold it for $250, they're nifty little rifles. They were called "Flobert" parlor rifles.

    Do not attempt to fire it with modern ammo. It cant take the pressure. If you must fire it do so with cb caps.

    This is a Folbert Rifle, it may not be safe to shoot, 1902 Sears Cataglog says to "buy a good rifle".
    But... they are collectable. So the $1 to $2 that they cost in 1902 has gone nothing but UP.
    Folbert invented the rimfire I think.

    Hope this helps...

    Gents above me are correct, even if their spelling is off. It is a Warnant type rifle intended to shoot Flobert cartridges. Those have NO POWDER, and a light round ball. Intended for indoor target shooting. Use of anything else may be why the breechblock is missing. Imbedded in shooter's forehead.

    Here is what it look like intact-
