I work P/T at the local gun shop and a customer brought in one of his late father’s rifles to try and identify it and it’s chambering. A photos worth a thousand words so here goes:
Single Shot Centerfire Bolt Action, octagonal barrel, Set triggers. Barrel wedge, and what apears to be an ornamental tortoise shell grip behind the triggers. I do not know what model this rifle is or when it was made. It’s overall appearance reminds me of a couple of flobert parlor guns that I’ve seen.
I made a chamber cast using cerrosafe and posed it next to a .45 Colt shell casing:
Here’s how she measures out:
Rim Diameter: 13.10mm / .516"
Base Diameter: 12.15mm / .478"
Neck Diameter: 12.05mm / .474"
Case Length: 40.80mm / 1.606"
Bore is around 11mm / .433"
I’m not very good with a micrometer so there probably are some measurement errors. If more photos would help I’d be happy to take them. The rifle appears to be sound but seems to be missing its extractor. I’d like to try and ID the chambering and rifle for the gentleman. If this isn’t the proper place to post this please advise me where I might find some help.
Thanks in advance,
Edited to add that’s it’s a Centerfire
