It's a .22 they used in the 50's at carnivals and fairs for the shooting galleries.

remington 550 2g

I've never shot it but a buddy of mine had one, and he loved plinking with the thing.

Fall back to the basics...

It reminds me of

my Winchester 69. If it's similar at all, you will have a blast plinking with it.

BTW, that was pretty funny about the "shoot to left", but you might be correct. You might want to double check the sights.
