Help please
I am looking for a rifle made in, I think the 70’s ?
It was a black powder and or smokeless ? The gun
had a round breach that Turned to the side to load.
Used loose power and round ball.
If I remember right the .22 used bullseye powder
I think it used a cap Gun cap to fire it.
They were made in .22 .36 .45 I think.

Not sure were to post this.
That is the only things that I remember
Any information would be appreciated.

I remember pictures of the little gun. A Casull design but I cannot find anything about it in Blue Book. Tell me why I should search more.

Rmac A-22

This is the cutest little rifle I have ever seen. I got it this summer, the only one that I ever seen. The main problem is the caps, modern ones don't have enough powder in them to fire, you have to use two of them. I am trying to post pictures but I don't know if they are going to be there.
