It looks lie there should be something else there. It just sort of looks like its in its undrwear or something. and there's no sights. My guess is there's part of the frame that goes on the aoutside of the barrel that' smissing.

i dunno. what.

Real wheel.
Sights are shaved.
Loads from other side.

Still have not hit the major problem. Keep trying.

The whole frame is bent to the right?
Nope.

This thing looked so odd to me that I paid the damn $38 bucks to take it home and find out what the heck was going on with it.

Looks like the trigger gard was added as a after thought.

So what is up?

Is it not a real trigger? Just a piece added on to the guard to make it look real?

It's not made out of steel. It's made out of pot metal or something, nadly painted. The barrel may or may not be steel.

It's a really well-made cap gun!

First off, the trigger guard has been welded on the gun and the front part of the trigger guard splits the trigger. That's odd. I have never seen a gun quite like that. Shaved sights, no loading door to speak of on the gun. That thing looks as if it was made in someones garage.


EDIT: I just saw it. Elguapo and I are on the phone talking about this right now, and we both saw it at the same time. The hammer pin is missing. The hole right above the wooden grip should have a pin in place to hold the hammer in the proper location. It's not there. That's an easy enough problem to fix. Congratulations, you have a $38.00 Saturday Night Special....

took it home and tore it apart and this is what I found....




Broken guard braced and then piled with JB Weld and painted!

I stripped and polished it
Now I have a shiny turd.

OMFG!!!!!!! Dude, take that thing to a gunsmith and have it fixed properly!!!!!! That's a great little .22 as an OLD friend of mine has one and I personally shot the cap of a smirnoff vodka bottle at 50 yards with it while using the woods as a range. Those things are wicked accurate. Get it fixed, it's worth it. OMG! That is nuts!
