When they say gallery style, does it mean the type where you have to pull the cocking knob back by hand after you load a round. If not what does the term mean?
thanks

I guess it would depend on how the word was being used. If you are referring to a "gallery rifle", these were, I think, intended to be used with low-power cartridges for gallery shooting, such as amusement partks, indoor ranges, etc.

I think of the rifle like the Remington 24 in .22 short which was common in shooting galleries at arcades. There was a light weight bullet that was made from a clay material...haven't done the research, but they were something like 15gr. in weight.
