    Hello all, I was recently talking to my mom about this rifle that she owned when she was in her 20s. She couldn't remember what make it was only that it was a bolt action .22 rimfire with an octagonal barrel and a tube magazine...
    After conducting an exhaustive search for such a rifle I haven't turned up any results. Can anybody help me out as to what make and model this rifle was?

    Are you positive it was a bolt action? Winchester made a slide action with a tube feed that had an octagon barrel (model 61 I think) and Marlin made a lever action (1897 cowboy) with a tube feed and octagon barrel.

    So many makers of .22's over the years it is hard to give a definate answer for you without more detail.:)

    Yes, I am positive, I talked with her at length about the rifle. The conversation came up when she was watching "Quigley Down Under" and she said to me she had a rifle with an octagon barrel like that. I asked her if it was a Quigley Sharps single shot and she said that it was an antique .22 bolt with a tube magazine. I said I had never heard of such a thing and would try to look it up.
    She said that she had let her cousin borrow it to go plinking and never saw it again :)mad:x1000!)
    damn, wish I knew the value or the make+model of such a rifle.
