    yeah, it's an over/under gun. carries 1 22lr and 1 410 shot gun shell in each chamber.

    useful for being out in the woods where you may either need to kill snakes or other small animals...

    CRAPPY trigger. Crude sights. Slow to reload. Heavy for what it is. Doesn't fold all that well.

    Better than a sharp stick though.

    If I'm not mistaken, this rifle was originally issued as a pilot survival rifle.

    EDIT; don't mind me, i should actually read the page before commenting on the picture.

    I've shot one of those with .22 hornet/.410, it is a very crude weapon but it was for some reason very fun to shoot. They almost feel like a toy until you start blowing up gallon jugs filled with water :big grin: Yes the trigger is crappy and the sights suck, but it's more of a survival/last resort thing than something someone would go shooting with.
