Hello everyone,

I am hoping you guys can help me with a firearm the I recently picked up. It is a skeleton .22 single shot rifle. The only marking on the rifle that I can find is "Firearms International" and a serial number "B353**". It is in good condition (I would rate it 85%). I cannot find any listing for it in my blue book. I got it for $50.

Does anyone know if this rifle has a model number? Any help figuring a vaule or how to find it in the blue book would be great. Thanks.

Sounds like a Bronco.

They were sold by Garcia, the FI, and several others through the years.

There was one listed on Gunbroker for $299, but that seems a little steep to me.

LOL!!! They originally sold for $19.95 back in the 60s. I bought one, but it didn't last long. I think I sitll have a couple parts from it.

Dad had a Bronco .410.
Very light and with a thin steel butt plate, it was unpleasant to shoot.
