    Default Dug up a gun.

    My Cousin dug this up today in Oklahoma. Any idea what it is?
    He said it is small bore like a 22. He will take some more photos tomorrow.

    Might be one of the old Stevens falling /rolling block single shots - a "Favorite" or related model.

    Maybe a chopped-off Crackshot with busted off tangs, though the "Miserable Loader" also had the same shaped frame.
    Knew an old coon hunter who told me that when he was a kid, he and his brothers used to make pocket pistols out of old Crackshot rifles to use when they had to climb up a tree after a coon, so they could get a close head shot and not take a chance of damaging the hide and lessening it's value.
    Of course, that was back in those common sense days that are long-gone.

    Next time a nearby municipality has one of those gun "buy back" schemes.....
