Guns For Sale - HOBAN MFG. COMPANY -- Hoban No. 45 .22 S, L, LR Single Shot Bolt Rifle

You are bidding on an interesting little piece of history. The Hoban Mfg. Co. succeeded the Hamilton Rifle Co. This company, in Salem, Michigan was run by Pat Hoban. aside from other products, the Hoban Mfg Company made the Model 45 Rifle, (for the year of its introduction), from 1945 until 1948. The rifle was a short, long or long rifle, single shot, boy’s rifle. It was designed to be reminiscent of an M1 Carbine which made perfect sense coming out of WWII. (However I always thought it looked more like a baby Carcano.....) Maybe thats just the Italian in me talking. During production of the gun it was offered as a promotional for a product called; WHITE CLOVERINE SALVE. The can was white with a clover on it. If you sold certain amount of cans, you would get this gun free as a premium. White Cloverine, was used to ease the pain of minor burns, scalds, sunburns, and windburn. These little rifles have since become fairly collectable and not often encountered. This particular example retains approx 60% original finish overall with generalized thinning. Wood has a few light handling marks and had been refinished at one time. But the good news is there are no cracks or big blemishes. Remember that most of these were pretty beat having been given away and used mostly by kids. Excellent bore. Excellent working order. All markings are clear and readable. Adjustable rear sight is missing the elevator but is otherwise intact. This little guy has a 20 inch barrel and overall length of only 34 1/4 inches. See pics and ask questions.
