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

    From several different angles.

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

    Possibly Swiss K31?

    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".
