When I was pretty young my dad had a falling block 25 rimfire, yeah it was old even then, he even still had a small amount of ammo for it, it also never seemed to miss. It was a firearm that fired the imagination of an 8 year old. It seemed heavy, but I could see it being a Buffalo gun, or carried by a calvary trooper. It wasn't the gun I learned on, but it was always there.
Savage has one similar to it in 22. lr.
Funny I'm the gun guy in the family but didn't get any of the family firearms, but I may have to check this one out. It would just be a "for fun" gun
