I have a neighbors rifle here which is a 22 lr that manually operates via a rod at the end of the lower stock. The receiver says Unique and below that is PYR.

There are words on the barrel but they are in French. He is missing the magazine for it. It looks like it would have been a small type pistol magazine. I have checked Gunparts with no luck. Any ideas?

If you use FireFox as a browser, it will translate for you.

Well I can't use a translator on it as it's inputted in as a photo and not as a format that I can copy and past. But that is definitely the rifle just a little newer version.

Thanks

Try this feller as well

That looks VERY much like a Winchester 1905, 1907 or 1910. (some small differences) Unfortunately, as far as I know the Winchesters never came in .22 so that won't help with the hunt for a mag :-( (I think they were only chambered in .32SLR, .35SLR, .351SLR and 401SLR, all probably too big to convert to .22)

Is that bolt at the back of the left side of the receiver a take-down bolt?
