Am bidding on a rifle full length,no bayonet lug and has a globe front sight and a receiver rear sight missing the slide. All parts have a different three digit number with a period prefix. What am I looking at?   Thank You

I know they existed, but that is all. Any markings visible on barrel?  How does the extractor work? Can you tell? 

With any .22 of that period, the ammunition was apt to be corrosive.  Pay attention to the description of the bore.

Hi
In the late nintenfiftis som 3000 M94 vere converted to .22lr from used rifles and parts. The barels were driled exsentric so that the cartirge lined upp betwin the extractor and firing pin.
