Probably not worthy of adding a premium to the price but still pretty cool in my opinion.

Years ago, I saw a Colt single action that had been found sitting on top of a rock in Alder Gulch at Virginia City, Montana.  Gun was covered with rust, but all serial numbers were very legible.  It was 111111.

That Colt would have been a very neat companion to the Winchester carbine under discussion.

I agree.  This carbine is a few grades below my taste.

Long time ago. Values have since caught up with what I paid. BTW, I just bought a nice 2nd Model S&W 44 HE. Not as nice as my 38-44 Outdoorsman, but really nice. Thanks Bill.  Big Larry USMCR

I’ll bet you will never fire it!  I always liked the .22 Jet cartridge because it looked so cool.  It certainly is different.  I’ve read it’s a bear to reload for.  I also seem to recall there were some issues with the cylinder binding – which I believe was related to the shape of the cartridge.  I can’t recall how long it’s been since I’ve seen a box of .22 Jet on a retail store shelf.  I’m also recalling some of these had a .22 rimfire auxiliary cylinder.
