hey fellows(and gals) i have an old (60s i think) 22 cal break down short rifle, all cast iron black,just a skeleton iron gun it swings open into 2 pieces, the barrel and rib and reciever, no markings other than caliber on the barrel section, course single shot has a little extractor on the side of the chamber, dont know who made it, its factory made it appears, but it dont weigh no more than a couple(maybe if that lbs) and is accurate as hell. all i can read is 22 s l lr on the side of the barrel section it slides off of the receiver and locks with a thumb cam, love this little gun if all else fails with the ar's and sk's i know i could jump in the brush with it on my bag my little 22 buckmark and a couple 1k rounds in my pockets and be just fine, wish i knew who made it so im aski'n you, dont want to get in the whole best survival rifle debate, but the case is clear (can you survive) is a great book, and thats my opinion thanks yall god bless ya, take care, peace jbird

Sounds like the USAF M-6 Survival Rifle/Marble's Game-Getter:

Be advised, if has the .410 shotgun barrel it may fall under NFA and require a $200 transfer + tax fee, or go to jail for free and learn the rock-breaking trade at Leavenworth University

might be one of the older marble's 'small game getter'. it had a wire stock and folded or took down - made in the 30's up to around '55

If this isn't it Quakenbush rifles were built with the skeleton stock but are way older.
