Notice how the Borchardt panels reflect the light.  Gold, silver, nickel-plated?  And the barrel appears to be longish and rapidly tapered.  I wonder if that rifle still exists.

I'm also a bit surprised to see a Maynard in Colorado.

Ballards may be weaker,
but they sure are neater!

I have a copy of that picture also. Always loved the image, plus the great shooters and gunsmiths in it. Plus the Denver Rifle Club has a lot of history of some of the finest shooters in the USA as members.

A Borchardt with panels was my initial thought but the action looked smaller. Maybe Peterson just had very large hands;-)

Maybe those panels are of ivory?

I'd bet calledflyer is right.  In fact, I'm pretty sure I've seen a at least one Borchardt with period ivory panels; perhaps it was this one.

In both photos. D. H. Cox appears to be missing his left hand.  If true and even if he shot his muzzleloader from a bench exclusively, I'd say his reputed shooting prowess was quite an accomplishment.

I've wondered about D. H. Cox being able to load and shoot that big heavy rifle one handed, I'd guess that he would have needed help. I used to shoot blackpowder muzzle-loaders that were fairly light, but I still needed two hands with those. So I'd guess we've got another mystery!?  Shocked

I have seen a few crippled people that have amazed me by what they could do without all their parts.
