It has sights, a triger, and can be cocked and fired. But there is no barrel. Please someone, what is it's purpose?

Hi

What you have is a pop rifle

Stevec, Thanks for the reply. In addition to the meager description in my first post, the following info. may help a bit. The gun is 32 inches long and has a full size cocking lever. Also, ahead of the compression chamber there seems to be a floating cylinder. That weighted cylinder is held in place by a coil spring that in turn is secured by a pin that also secures a band that is the front sight and forward anchor for a sling. When fired,the forward spring compresses and then, when the pressure is spent, flys back. The inertia giving your shoulder a nice little kick.
I'm an old duffer that has enjoyed air guns for nearly eighty years. The first was a pop gun at age four. From then on I was hooked.

Hey Guy

If it says Rogers on it it was made after 1958 if it says Plymouth it was made before 1958.
