Biathlon rifles of the past

In the 70s or 80s or so, I recall some (rimfire)rifles that had an underside lever that was located in a reliefed portion of the stock. The rifle was fired and the index finger of the hand on the forend was used to flick the vertical lever rearward to eject and reload. Does any body know what rifle that was? Was it a variant of the Browning SA22/Rem 24? Does anyone know of a book that would cover the general evolution of the rifle, as used in biathlon?

Thanks
Clay
