Has anyone heard of a Bronco single-shot .22 with a completely steel/iron frame. I have one that I purchased many many years ago and I'm trying to find out who was the original manufacturer.

Any information you may have would be helpful.

Thanks in advance,
A Savage Ruger

Gidday SavageRuger. Mate, all of the searching I have done indicates that the Bronco is called the "Garcia Bronco".

Best I could find is an article from GunsandAmmo:

from Guns & Ammo
February 2005

Firearms International Bronco
Q: I recently purchased a .22 all-metal, single-shot rifle from a terminally ill relative who has since passed. For sentimental reasons, I have no desire to ever sell it, but I would be interested in knowing more about this very unique rifle, which he purchased for $5. It has a swivel-down barrel, manual ejector, manual firing-pin cocker and square safety button above the trigger. It’s in about 70 percent condition. The only inscription on the entire rifle is on the butt: “Firearms International Corporation Washington D.C. 20022.” I would appreciate your help. --D.S., Marietta, OH



A: The rifle you describe is a .22 Long Rifle Bronco Model, which was imported by Firearms International Corporation and was manufactured in Italy during the late 1960s. At that time, the gun had a manufacturer’s suggested list price of $19.95. This company was absorbed by Garcia during the early 1970s.

There ya go mate. Good luck with any further research on this rifle.

Cheers, Vince

Vince,

Thanks for the post. I found a bit of info concerning the gun and Garcia but, not much. At least now I'm looking in the right direction. I wonder if the Garcia Co. is the same or was the same as Mitchell Garcia - the sporting goods company mostly known for their fishing reels?

Anyway, thanks again
