just give it a good clean out and check for pitting or blockages, but yeah with a .22 you should be pretty right, I reckon.
Is it one of the old single shot ones?, you put the bullet in and close the bolt and then have to pull the pin back? If so, unless it's in excelent condition it's probably worth about $50, I had one and the gun shop guy wouldn't even sell it on commision for me.

ah ok yeah thts it i dunno how to take the bolt out if u can
but ive had a look with the bolt opened there is no blockages i will give it a clean
but its a bit loose in the stock i just hope it wont blow the gun up
so standard 22lr bullets should be right for it

Hold the trigger back and you can remove the bolt.

if you can get a brush down it then you should be right, if you are real worried use sub sonics they should have less power. But you should be able to get the bolt out by pulling the trigger and pulling it out.
