Another Hamilton
« on: August 04, 2020, 03:35:25 PM »
I was looking for something else and found my other Hamilton 22! This one is in much better condition than my other one.

These little rifles were put in random feed bags, and also given as a prize for buying a windmill. I think they were the pre-curser to the Daisy air rifles too.

It's very primitive looking, in a good way. I like it!

A fine piece Mazo!!!

Hamilton was perhaps the most prolific maker of the boys rifle. The company did lots of advertising and had a ery long 47 years of production.

OK, I have some of those left. It is a tiny little rifle, and not a very strong action.

I would LOVE to know the history behind mine. It's been in the family since I was old enough to dream about shooting it...or longer. I never thought to ask Dad about it when he was with us...now nobody knows. Mom has no idea whatsoever. I'll stick with my fantasy story that it was Dad's when he was a kid...

That is plausible! I believe you.
