I took a gamble obtaining this little guy. I collect US and/or Canadian-made .22rf single-shot weapons. But, so far I've been unable to locate ANY info on this well-made, attractive little rifle.

The stock is simply a plank sawn to shape then the sharp edges sanded round. VERY similar to a lot of BB gun stocks. It has the perch-belly forestock which has a finger groove routed down each side.

The rear sight, which is mounted backward to most of this type, is the only place where the gun has any stampings.

Am assuming it's a MODEL 101 SAFARI, but no idea WHO made it!!! :confused:

I saw a very poor photo of one offered a few years ago by Rock Island Auctions but it looked like it was probably THIS gun. Keep intending to check with their archivist to see if they've got any further info on it.

Any help from other readers would be greatly appreciated.

You started a thread about this last year if I recall.

You don't suppose the safari 101 just refers to the sight itself? I don't really think so, are there any markings under the wood at all? proof marks or whatever?

How about some close ups of the action itselt to compare to other models?

Quite possible, Dr. Rob. Have had no new info since I obtained it. With changes in THR I'm not sure who, which, or where I may have previously posted. Be that as it may I still need info and there may be some fresh faces got aboard since I previously posted.

Old Shooter, it's a VERY plain and simple single shot bolt action. Is this what you had in mind? NO MARKINGS ANYWHERE except where you see them on sight.
