It was my first rifle,,,
A Winchester 1898 pump in 22 Short,,,
It had a very long octagonal shaped barrel,,,
The magazine rod was missing so it was a single-shot.
I paid $5.00 for it at a farm estate auction,,,
I believe it was in the year 1960.
My younger brothers destroyed several of my guns,,,
They used them as toys when I left for military service,,,
Unfortunately this was one of the guns they used as play guns.
I know where there is an exact brother to my old rifle,,,
It's hanging on the wall of The Evil Pawn Shop,,,
It books out at about $1,200.00.
