The Model 121 Single Shot 22 rim fire was designed to provide beginning and young shooters with a bolt action system that would provide a safe, efficient and reliable first firearm. In addition to handling one cartridge at a time, the rifle has a safety catch that automatically engages itself in the "safe" position each time the bolt handle is raised. The rifle cannot be discharged after each loading until the safety has been manually depressed. Three different versions of the basic model were available. The Youth model offers a short buttstock for the younger shooter; the Standard has a stock of conventional length for the average man-sized youngster or adult. In addition, a third, Deluxe, version has a standard length stock with the extra features of a Monte Carlo, fluted comb and sling swivels. The Deluxe rifle also has a special trigger mechanism and a ramped bead post front sight. The M/121 was introduced in 1967 as part of a matched family of 22 rim fire rifles and dropped from the line in 1973. A total of 72,561 were made (Barnes 1880).
