I have this old, 22 Caliber "Gallery Gun" made by Winchester. It has the tubular magazine in the buttstock, and will fire only 22 Short. This gun belonged to my Grandfather, who purchased it in the Late 20s or early 30s. It needs a new trigger and Buttstock. Serial number is 2310. Sorry don't have a picture. If this is posted in wrong thread please feel free to move it. Thanks

It is a semi-auto, side ejection. I just found some barely readable info on the Rifle, it says Model 74. I'm sorry, it is bottom ejection. I checked again. I am not sure I would want to fire it, The last time it was fired was in 1947.

Take it to a competent gunsmith and have it checked for safety. Little money for much safety.

+1 for numrich

Also that would bring at least a couple hundred at a gun show if in good condition, but I personally would hold on to it for sentimetal value. If not post some pics and I might make you a decent offer.
