    I don't think that it would be good to fire high speed ammo in it. Do a little research on the serial #. Remington started making high velocity .22 rim fire ammo in 1930. If it was made after that and has a tight lockup and is" in time" then you could most likely shoot any short ,long, or long rifle ammo. It looks like a well kept revolver.

    What are the barrel markings? I've never seen one of those. Really nice condition for any top break that old.

    Looks like they went under around 1917 so it is old but looks nice.

    Makes it a rare ol' revolver in my book. Check blue book on it....maybe surprised?

    * One tip to use for all older top-break revolvers *

    Always lift the locking latch when opening and also when closing the action -- that will help keep the frame-to-latch lockup tight. Worse thing any shooter can do is to "slam" an older top-break closed, although many do it cause they think it looks cool.

    (Exceptions being the Webley Mk IV and Schofield military top-breaks where the more robust latches were designed to engage when closed rather briskly -- especially when Indians or Zulus were closing in on your firing position...)
