          No, there are rifles too. Mostly made in France (good) or Turkey (okay to crap)

      This one isn't. 22long, it's regular old .22lr
      "Lang für Büchse" = "Long for rifle"

      6mm flobert was for cheap indoor shooting at targets or maybe small pest control

      they used to use this for carnival target guns, and indoor "parlor guns" where rich people could entertain guests with an at home shooting gallery

      Ok thanks. So they are NOT for small handguns who have a magazine?

        there was never any magazine made to be used with such an anemic cartridge. there were certain pump actions that could cycle it. im not sure if there were any revolvers but i suppose its possible.

          Turks certainly made revolvers for it. They are sold in my country and you can search youtube. Basically modified blank firing frames. As for old revolvers, that was a mistake.

            lol its like a really dangerous capgun

            you'd probably need to pointblank someone in the heart, or jugular, or like maybe in the eye? even then it's probably got like 0.5 inches of penetration lol

        No, you'd need a revolver of some sort.
        You'd literally be better off finding a collector at a gun swap and selling these to them for trade on ammo you can use. Those boxes of ammo are worth more to a collecter than they are as shot. In case you hadn't figured that out yet.

          Collectors won;t pay shit. That's fairly new made ammo.
          They can be singly loaded into any gun with enough space to fit your fingers, no need for a revolver.

    6mm Flobert, made for so-called 'garden guns' in Europe/UK before WWII. Don't throw that tin away or do anything dumb with it it has real collector's value

      Did USA make anything similar to "garden guns?" This seems like a EU only thing.
      Dad has a 1900s era break barrel 22 that could probably shoot these things. It was a give away rifle... they were given as promotions, and they were intended to be used by kids / women. But I've never seen them referred to as garden guns here.
      Also this is like the 5th thread like this I've seen this week. WTF is up with these 22CB threads.

        Don't want to be cynical but probably Canada handgun ban effects.

        Yes, up until the 1930s at least, 22 CB Cap (6mm Flobert equivalent) was quite popular and many gun were made for it- Winchester 1890, Remington 24, some of the Henry lever actions, and revolvers. as the other gay said, they were used for shooting games at carnivals and indoor sports as well as varmints.
        But everything 22CB does today an air gun does better so it's a pretty dead round

          One thing I just realized firearm garden guns can do that air rifles cannot is shoot these little snake shot rounds like pic related.

          >Did USA make anything similar to "garden guns?"
          What? Yes, or course. I'm pretty sure that at one point you could get your hands on a pot-metal .22 by sending in fucking cereal boxes. It's just that for the last hundred years or so the vast majority of single-shot .22s have been in S/L/LR configuration so everything from CB/BB through Long doesn't get much attention.

          >This seems like a EU only thing.
          Nah. You want a yuro-only thing, try rook rifles. Only the fucking British would use a .38 cal centerfire falling block for birds and rabbits.

          What I meant was, did USA refer to them as garden guns? That particular term.
          And it appears the answer is "yes."

          The one dad has was a give away when you opened a bank account in the American West circa 1900's.
          It's something like pic related, but no easily legible makers marks. Really simple action, unfortunately missing some parts.
