frawley,
Mitchell made/imported several rifles in .22 cal that were copies of other rifles - the French MAS, M-16, Galil, AK, and the Russian PPSH-30/50. However, I'm not familiar with any Mitchell that resembles a Marlin ??

Of course that means nothing as I have a Mitchell M-16 with a wire, under-folding stock but I can't find where Mitchell ever made such a rifle !!

Colt S.,
thanks much for the link as that's the first and only picture I've ever seen of the rifle with the under-folding stock !!


I have that rifle and three mags. (Bought the rifle last year and had a generous offer to buy 'before' I even received the gun !!)

Believe it or not these guns are highly collectible.

I have a couple myself. The SP1 look-a-like & the Commando, both in 22lr. The SP1 is very accurate especially using Aguila SSS round.
