At least I think it is a rare rifle. I can't find any info online on a CC Johnson chambered in a 219 Zipper. I found that Johnson was a smith somewhere in the midwest in the 40's & 50's.
The rifle is a heavy barreled single shot lever action. My Grandfather gave me this gun recently and unfortunately I could not get that much history from him due to his age and ailing health. It is obviously a varmint/target gun and he used to hunt woodchucks with it in western Newyork. The blueing is excellent and the stock is nearly flawless. With it came about 50 handloads and a load of brass along with some dies.
I have never heard of this rifle or caliber so any info would be greatly appreciated.
