1920 Fiala

Post by Rebel » Sun Mar 19, 2017 6:21 pm

The .22rf Fiala Model 1920 originated with Anthony Fiala, a well-known soldier, statesman, adventurer, and explorer several decades ago. Fiala had his gun designed as a magazine-fed single-shot because he didn't trust the semi-auto action to function properly in sub-zero environments, such as the Polar Regions, where he expected his customers to be journeying to. His company logo was a Polar Bear.

With the long barrel and stock, it is practically a carbine. The grips are smooth walnut. In a black leatherette locking carrying case with purple velvet lining, space for the gun, stock and extra barrels.

That's a beaut. What's the round thingy on the right side? It looks like a really short barrel.

The "round thing" is the screw for removing the bbl.......Fialas with buttstocks are specifically exempted from the NFA....

There are 3 barrels, the shortest one being on the right, above the screws.
The screw for the buttstock should be captured, but it's loose. there is a second, non-original screw in the pic alongside the stock one.
