    Default Browning 22 Pump Rifle

    Hi All,

    I have a Browning 22 caliber pump rifle that my father got when he captured a German soldier during WW2, who had the rifle in his possession. I don't remember how my father said he got it back to the states. He is gone now and I can't ask again. The rifle has written on the barrel "fabrique nationale d'armes de guerre herstal belgique" and under that "Browning's Patent Depose". It also has some strange looking symbols and the letters FT 22C right where the barrel goes into the chamber. On the bottom of the chamber is has the numbers 1335. I sent the rifle to Browning and they did a wonderful job of restoring it. Any information on this rifle would be very much appreciated. Thanks

    I have a 1911 Winchester 22 pump action that looks alot like your Browning. It is surprising that a German soldier had this. I am sorry but I can't tell you much about this.

    Very nice, I also dont have any idea why a German soldier would have a weapon like this.

    Thanks

    Can you identify any of the marks as being a crown?

    This will give you an idea of how long this model has been around.

    Dec. 13, 1887
    Patent was filed on a 22 caliber pump action repeating rifle. It has been called "the most popular 22 caliber pump action rifle ever made." Patent No. 385,238 was granted on June 26, 1888. First marketed as the Winchester Model 1890.

    Is it possible that the German got it off an American?
