  1. Lower one is officially called Model 1902. Unofficially called Phillipine Model. Incorrectly called Alaskan model, due to large trigger guard, supposedly to accommodate use of gloves. There is almost no difference in amount of space in front of trigger guard , where gloved trigger finger would go. Trigger guard is larger DOWNWARD, to accommodate longer trigger. This gives more leverage to pull against heavy hammer spring used to fire harder service primers. Red
  2. Now, to figure out how to UNload quickly!

  4. Maureen O'Hara and you notice the RIFLES?!? You ARE far gone!
  5. The Bullet Hole is in Delaware County, Town of Andes, near the hamlet of Andes.

  6. "An armed society is a polite society." Science fiction author Robert A. Heinlein, quoting ...uh, some French philosophe.
  7. 'Long as I'm posting IMDB links for pretty girls...... http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0000368/bio
  8. Michelle Carey :wub: http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0137004/
  9. Hate to burst your bubble, but what you have is, indeed, a Belgian knock-off. Westley Richards guns are always signed just that way, "Westley Richards", in full, no "W." It has English proofs because it was sold in England. If no Belgian proofs, probably imported as parts and assembled in "Old Blighty". Pics of proof marks?
  10. Gus: The new Dixie Gun Works catalog, page 8, has a new book on the Burgess rifle, "The Burgess Long Range Rifle Model 1878" by Dale A. Olson, $19.95
