Does anyone have any info, Parts, or rifles made by Rocky Mountain Arms Corp. in the late 60s to 1970s? I have one in 22 cal that has a turret on the breech to load it with a #4 buckshot and blackpowder &^ it is primed with the old paper caps from capguns. Any info or parts would be greatly appreciated.

    Seems like I remember "Guns and Ammo" article about that rifle.

    Hello jmabbott888:

    The rifle you note was made by RMAC in the
    early 70's and used a small charge of black powder
    in the rotating "turret" breech. The stock proportions and
    overall size suggest it was geared toward a younger shooter.
    I presently have one, but the tiny, extremely
    thin (and fragile) mainspring broke and attempts to
    locate an original replacement have been futile.
    The ignition system consists of a small metal cap which is
    placed over a paper "cap pistol" "primer" in the breech.
    Wish I could tell you how it shot, but its premature failure
    put a quick halt to that option.

    Faldum, I can tell you that they shoot great, just real messy to clean up lol. I've got 1 that was bought for me when I was 3 or 4 & finally 27 years later shot it with my kids. I'm wanting to get a second on or parts & try to build 1 for my 4 yr old to shoot. Thanks for the info you gave.
