Hello all, I have a buddy that just made a trade for a Firearms International .22 cal. Single Shot rifle. The frame is cast iron, all of the action is open. It has a trigger to open the breech and cocks it at the same time, the barrel swings up and around, (clockwise to open). has an ejector push pin,
(Like revolvers). There is no serial number or anywhere that I can see where it would have been or been filed off. There is some signs of corrosion on the barrel, mostly blackening of the metal. Anybody out there heard or know anything about this thing or the company that built it? It looks like it may have been a great little plinker for a kid learning to shoot. I am going to ask if I can get a couple of pictures of it. I will post them if I do.

Firearms International Corporation was an importer and dealer in firearms in the 1950s and 1960s located in Washington, D.C. At one time they sold FN commercial rifles and various handguns. They are long gone from the scene. I am not familiar with the rifle you describe. All the best...

The rifle you are describing is probably the Garcia Bronco as pictured or the Rau Arms Wildcat (Ozark Mountain Wildcat), see web site photo, both of which were sold by International Firearms. The wildcat was made in several models and had a twist action and a twist takedown and disassembly. The Wildcat pictured is a late model, the last made, an early model would probably be closer to the gun described.

wow I just stumbled on this site and I can't believe you guys have one of these rifles.. I thought I was the only one! well not really but ya... I took it to every gun dealer and pawn shop around here and they never knew what it was. Mine is in about 80% condition and I shoot it when I go camping. Ground Squirles beware! hahaha... but anyway, Mine is the older model I think it doesn't have that LEVER?? or piece of metal I see in that pic above the trigger?? what is that anyway? I still haven't taken the trigger assembly out ,, to scared to as I don't know if I could put it back in as it looks like it would be a MAJOR pain in the butt. Only a few pins hold it all together in there, but I really would like to clean all the crap out of the trigger housing. Other than that the gun works flawlessly, if you are wanting to get rid of yours let me know I will take it off your hands...

Anyone know what they are worth?????

badolbob,

If you rifle is indeed a "7mm-06" it is essentially what is known today as the .280 Remington. I would beware of using current .280 ammo however since it may have been a custom chambering with some gunsmith's own idea of case shoulder and other dimensions. It should be an easy task to have whoever did your chamber cast compare the casting with current SAAMI specs for the .280. If it is a .280, you have a very efficient cartridge that just happens to be one of my favorites for medium to medium-large game. Even if it is a 7mm-06 wildcat, you might be able to contact RCBS for appropriate dies and get it shooting. Starting loads for the .280 should be a good place to begin if the rifle is in sound shape.

Check it out and let us know.

Hi all,

I remember those rifles, as a matter of fact a friend of mine owns one. I seem to remember them being referred to as "Survival" rifles supposedly issued to U.S. aircrews. I'll have to check my archives and see if I have any more info.
