Looks like a Garcia Bronco. Made in both .22 and 410. Even made a over under, .22 over .410. Made from 1968 to 1978. I believe FIE imported the same version under another name. Made in Italy. New in box, value is only 110.

The other tubular rifle I was thinking about is the Bauer " Rabbit " 1982-1984 but I believe it was only made in .22 over .410. Looks just like the Bronco.

Someone once described those as a "minimum gun" and that about sums it up. Surprisingly, they worked and were even fairly accurate in .22; I don't recall ever firing the .410 barrel so I don't know how good it was.

Again IIRC, there were some other importers besides Garcia.

The Bronco rifle was originally sold by Firearms International Corporation then later by Garcia.
