We are going to need a picture for it...

From several different angles.

Pictures of the reciever [ the part where the bullet sits ].

And the top of the barrel with any writing etc.

Most likely info is on the barrel, right?

We'll really need pictures. As vague as the OP was, we do have one hint:

with a cross markings

Possibly Swiss K31?

Very much so - pictures are needed.

it is obviously a velo-dog

And that's my opinion until we see some pictures. Good in-focus pictures of the whole gun, the receiver, any markings on the gun anywhere, the feed system, and the chamber area.

John,

Pictures need to be re-sized to fit this formats size requirements.
Another way is to post them to a site like photobucket and then paste them into your post.

Taking the pictures with a camera as opposed to a phone is the best option if available.

If this is beyond your expertise, you could 'private message' me. Then send me the photos and I'll re-size them and post them for you.

I understand the feeling of being unable to do computer related things quite well! Eleven years to learn how to copy and paste.:rolleyes:

Just an option, JT

I going to go further out on a limb and predict it is either a K-31 or a Swedish Mauser.... Does it have a traditional bolt or is it a straight pull with no turning involved to operate?

I think it could be a Swiss Army Knife or an old motel bible until I see a Photo of it.

Until we hear back, my blind guess is a Yugo Mauser M48, with no markings... They made a batch.

Just FWIW, the "AR" is just the first two letters of Armalite; it doesn't stand for "Armalite Rifle" or "Assault Rifle".

Gotta go with other Jim, considering that an Armalite AR-17 is a shotgun.

My source for the "AR" as the first two letters of ArmaLite was Dick Boutelle.

BTW, my error in spelling the tradename without the capitalized "L".
