.22 survival Rifle

I was given a .22 survival rifle from my grandfather, I would like to know when and who made this firearm. This is a tube frame with a trigger that you pull back to engage the firing pin and it also allows you to spin the barrel to reload it. This is a single shot and is not a brake down survival gun. I will be posting pictures as soon as I get a chance. Thank you for your help

Without pictures or wording it is difficult to know for sure, however it sounds like it could be a Garcia Bronco. You might look on Gunbroker.com and type in bronco in the search box. They have a bronco for sale now in 410. Check it out and see if it is same as yours.

Welcome to TFL, Glock1982. Sounds like a Garcia Bronco to me. IIRC these were sold from the late 1960's through the early 1980's Pretty neat little rifles, but there is something (dont remember what) tricky about disassembly on these.
