    twin set triggers model with 5 shot detachable mag and schnabel forend, built in factory in 1968 so pre-dates the Fox but basically the same rifle. BRNO first made these in 1935 but main production started in 1949 after WW11. Basically a miniature Mauser 98 action and renowned for reliability and accuracy. Stock shape is pretty much that of a BRNO Model 2 .22 rimfire although not identical. Its nice piece of walnut although not highly figured, plain grain.

    Would be worth more if had the original barrel in it - to a collector anyway .
    Cats have nine lives-which makes them ideal for experimentation...

    Is it compatible with the new(ish) Hornady .17 Hornet ammunition?

    couple of thousand rounds through it
    groups better than i can do it justice for ;-(
    not compatable with hornady hornet
    pulled off net "The Ackley Hornet is a full length Hornet case-1.400". Hornady chose to use a case approx. .060" shorter-1.340", supposedly to keep the OAL the same as the .22 Hornet.
    The Hornady ammo will fire in an Ackley chamber, but not vice versa.
    The factory ammo in an Ackley chamber gives 3500 fps and groups very well."

    Given it doesn't have the original barrel or but pad, the barrel it does have is of unknown origin and has had a couple of thousand rounds through it... i would put the value around the $650 mark. Maybe a little more if someone specifically wanted the calibre. Keeping in mind i haven't seen this rifle myself and have no idea of its condition under the stock or down the barrel that is where i see its value. If the barrel is worn out or it simply doesn't shoot then that value would drop.

    If it was an original Brno Hornet i would be more inclined to put that value up to $850-$1000. They are a beautiful little rifle, action is a very smart design. I wouldn't say they are reliably accurate but once you find the right load they are great. They can be tricky to load for. I have a 1949 model one of these in 22k hornet.
