i wonder if it is a sears .22? I remember, when i was a kid, seeing .22 cartridges where the bullet would separate in flight, and act a little like BB's. If i remember correctly, they called it "bird shot" or something like that. Hence them holding birds in the pics.
looks like the tube fed bolt action shotguns of the day...although looking at closer the feed tube appears to be longer and more like a 22?That's not a shotgun.
