Thanks. Don't you wish you were a fly on the bench for that conversation between Roberts and Pope.

Barry told me the photo was him testing barrel #3 at Rodrick's range August 1970. The rifle is a Stevens 52.

Here's an interesting post on Lower and a brief history of the man. Pretty good read.

Bob
Thank you for posting those old rifle photos. They are most interesting. Do you have any idea when the photos were taken?
The reason why I ask about photo dates is that photo of Dr Hudson's Remington has a palm rest. Hudson was well known for having a cork pad attached to the forestocks of his rifles and supporting the rifle with his fingertips. It would be interesting to try to research references as to when he used a palm rest in competition. If the photo date was during the Schuetzen era, I might be clue for starting a search.

Randy,

I'm not 100%, but I think these photos were taken for Phil Sharpe's books, Phil Sharpe was a great fan of Harry Pope.

Typical - did you notice in the Roberts & Pope picture - Harry's shoes are not shined & Ned's glisten?

No surprise. Roberts was an Army Major and spit shine was a hard habit to break.

I read somewhere the "Major" title was not a rank Roberts held, but rather something people referred to Roberts as?
