I also picked up a 22 pistol from a friend who wanted nothing to do with it. New, never fired still covered in cosmolene Jennings 22. Probably worth more loaded with ammo then not according to my friend. I'm curious to see if it is really junk after all.

Looks like this:

Is this gonna put Butler Creek out of business?

Holy shit, will take a definite bite, depending on the cost.........Butler Creeks are notorious for not feeding, and a Ruger factory piece will probably work reliably enough to justify some increased cost.

My Tri Mags that use factory Ruger magazines might take a hit too, however they still offer 30 round capacity without hanging way down under the rifle.

I'll take a couple more pics for you.

Not having any luck with the pics, need better light.

I'll skip the guessing game. Its a ZKM 468 made in Czechoslovakia.

It could have been a .38 rimfire, they made guns chambered for that... about a 100 years or so ago. I know they also made .32 rimfire and .44 rimfire and likely lots more than those. I think thats real old stuff though and they went to primers in the cases pretty early in the game.

I believe that the original old Remington double-barrel derringers were chambered in a 41 rimfire cartridge. As has been mentioned, there used to be quite a few different larger bore rimfire cartridges around, but I'm not sure any are being produced these days which are larger than the .22s.

no it was definately newer than that, dont forget it was buried in a gravel beach theres no way it wouldve been there more than........ ive no idea, but certainly not a century. have there been many rimfire shotshells? perhaps not a bullet round at all? wish i'd kept it or at least taken a pic now

I have some 50 year-old ammo that I shoot from time-to-time. Just sayin'......because a round is no longer in production doesn't necessarily mean that nobody is shooting the stuff, some people tend to stockpile ammo.

Interesting find.

no, not really. i cant post pictures on here but i found what it was, it was a 9mm shotshell for a 'garden gun'. not common any more but not what you would call rare either. you can still buy the ammo here. what it was doing on a busy tourist attraction beach i dont know, but it couldve been put there the day before.
