Did you ever see a rifle that, for some reason, caught your eye? Well, this page has some digital photos of a rifle that I just picked up that caught mine. For the past year or so, I had seen a small rifle marked "JGA 6mm" with a price tag of $150 hanging on it. I tried to find out about 6mm, but no one was aware of where it could be found (if at all),so I kept passing it by.
Recently, I stopped by the pawn shop to see what was new, and I spotted of JGA rifle yet again. Even though I had been told that ammo might not be available, I asked the proprietor what he would take for it, considering that it had been there for a while. We haggled down from $150 to $80 out the door, and I went home with my new rifle.

I looked on the internet for ammo, and sent Dangerous Dave at Old Western Scrounger an email; Dave answered that 6mm-Flobert was basically a rimfire .22 size. I showed my new rifle to my brother-in-law, and mentioned that I needed to find 6mm-Flobert ammo; My B-I-L remembered that he had bought some CB Caps at a gunshow a couple of years ago, and he looked around his basement and found the empty container. Sure enough, 6mm-Flobert is the same as CB Caps. I found info on 6mm-Flobert at a website: http://www.dnrws.com/p742.htm
