The well-known Colt rifle is made at present in the 22 caliber only. It shoots the long and short 22. caliber rim fire cartridges, and they may be loaded indiscriminately one after another into the magazine. Except when the hammer is down the handle is locked in its forward position. The rifle weighs about six pounds and can be fitted with the adjustable hammer which serves the same purpose as a set trigger.
