Does anyone have information on Tony's Model 21 .22 caliber double rifles. Little has been heard of these guns for a long time. Does anyone have any idea how many he made and how much they sell for? They don't seem to appear in his catalogs.

Thanks, Bob. These guns have "You" written all over them.

I am not sure if any have been built since Lucus left to return to his homeland.

Bob, is this the gentleman I met at Vegas many years ago who explained how the gun was designed and built? If so, we had a very nice conversation that made me want one of these guns. Your friend, Murphy.

Could have been. I believe that is where I first saw the gun with him proudly showing it around.

Any squirrel or bunny would be flattered to be dispatched by so handsome a rifle. I wonder which ammo it's regulated for.

I think Lucas (Geiger) built the small Fox 22DR first. Done as a side project the first one was even smaller that the final product. The small boost in size to the final design was done to avoid problems with the ejector(?) springs IIRC. Maybe it was the main springs.
You get too small and the trade offs you have to choose from betw power, OD & ID, length, ect get less & less.

The rifle was such a hit they decided to make it available and added the tiny M21 DR as well.
Special order pretty much but quite a few were made up on speculation and brought to shows like Vegas and usually sold.

That's how I recall it anyway. Been a while though..

I found a fairly recent mention of the .22 Galazan gun in an introductory catalog for Tony's new over under. It priced the gun at $25,000.00 before engraving, the same price as one he has listed on Gunsinternational. The three on Gunsinternational are pretty nice.

I got to handle one in person recently during a visit to the CT showroom -- Oh my, what a superb example of artistry in guns. It was sweet!

Ultimately, buying it would have required me to "visit" several area banks with one of my SIGs...

Oh well... But it sure was a beauty!
