Has anyone ever heard about an inline 32 caliber made by Marathon Products?
I bought a barreled action at an auction last week. It has a 16 1/2" barrel, cock on closing bolt. to put the safety on you twist the knob on the rear of the bolt.It is grooved for 22 scope rings.
The reciever is marked Marathon Products, Inc. Weathersfield, CT. (2 lines)
On the barrel it is marked First Shot .32 Cal. Black Powder Only (2lines)
This thing really brings to mind an old 22 boys rifle, althogh I am guessing it was made in the 1980's.
I have tried to search the internet, no luck.

Any info is appreciated,

got one of these that I bought at a gun show about 25 years ago. it has a painted black stock, ram rod separate from the rifle. supposidly to be stainless but has rust spots on it.it has the most god awful sights on it that I haver seen. looks like a cheap single shot 22.,Ive never shot it. check the breech plug before you line it up with your shootin' eye. gave $20.00 for it in the box.

Thanks for the info. I have to make a stock for it before I think about shooting it. If I do it will only be with lite loads, I am thinking about 10 grains of 3F and a round ball, after I try it tied to an old tire two or three times.
