I found this rifle in a garbage can. It's rusted and in bad shape. I should throw it back in the garbage. but the manufacture NOBLE MFG.CO. INC. Haydenville, MASS. Model 235 .22cal S-L-LR Sparked my curiosity. Can anyone give me a history lesson? None are listed on GunBroker.

Nobel was better known for their shotguns, but they had an entire line of .22 rifles: Pump, bolt action and lever action and they all looked pretty much like the same basic rifle, but with a different action. I think the 235 was introduced in around 1950 and they were still selling into the early '70s. I think the 235 sold for about fifty bucks before it was discontinued. There is nothing wrong with these rifles, they have no collector value, but they shoot just fine so if you can somehow get the gun to work then go ahead and enjoy it...The price was sure right!

Nobel was located in New England and was in business between the early 50's and early 70's, when they were bought out by Smith & Wesson.

Most of the .22 rifles and shotguns they made, were inexpensive utility grade guns. You might check the Gun Parts Corp's on-line catalog. At one time they had a lot of parts for guns made by Nobel in it.
