    I wonder if anybody has any idea who made this type of rifle. Its owned by Shihan's grandfather, used for hunting in the 1930s-1940s. Pres. Quezon even used this same rifle back then.:)

    It looks to be a "Warnant"-type rimfire single-shot, probably made in Belgium; are there any markings anywhere on the barrel?

    Unfortunately, none. We looked for those because Shihan is open to selling it
