I bought a single shot Hamilton at a flea Market years ago. The bolt was missing and I thought it was a B-B gun at first. I eventually took it apart out of curiosity and the barrel is sheet metal. It appears that sheet metal was crush rolled around a rifled mandrel and then the mandrel removed. I am not going to go look at it right now, but I remember it was marked .22 short.
Normally when Hamilton is mentioned someone says Remington Arms purchased his patents. That would include the rifled mandrel.
