It was just laying in my pasture. Fairly certain its been run over, mowed over, disc'd and cow stompted a few hundred times. I think it is a Stevens falling block. Not a .22 though, as the bore is larger than that. The barrel is octagon for the first 8 or 9" changing to round for the remainder. When I first picked it up I thought it was an old hand brake lever...










Trade value $1,638.43... bolt

That's an awesome find. I'd make a plaque for it and display it somewhere.

I had the $1638. But the 43 cents? Now you are just another scalper trying to take advantage.

Funny, I was concerned it was loaded. To check it out I ran a piece of bailing wire down the muzzle scared. The end of the wire became visible at the hammer... (actually, I guess it was visible at the block)

But I'll let you give it a test run BP.
