    I saw this rifle, or one like it, online at oldguns.net, for sale.

    I was researching Birdsong's Black T finish and this pic was in his photo gallery. It says it's a .22 Magnum, wire stock, pretty simplistic, maybe survival?, rifle. Just wondering what company made them and model?

    Looks like a .22 Mag/ .410 survival rifle. It's not a Springfield M6 - the trigger(s) are wrong - but I'm not sure who made it.

    One more pic. I saved this pic on my iPhone, but not the info, from oldguns.net, but they must of sold it, cause it's not on there anymore. As far as I can tell, it's the same type:

    I found this photo on a S&W forum....

    The post with the photo didn't give an indication of make or model, but it did say that it was a .410 WITHOUT the .22 barrel.

    It is a FIE-Garcia Bronco .22 rifle. They were sold back in the 1970's or thereabouts. .410 and .22LR, normally

    My guess by the design, .410 upper/.22LR lower barrel. May be O/U break open......

    My mother in law had a 410 like that. What looks like a second trigger is a release that lets you swivel the single shot barrel to the side so you can reload.:wavey:

    I was wondering what the second trigger was for. I didn't know if they all were combination 22/410, or if the lower was actually a magazine tube. Learn something new everyday ;)
