The guy in back on the right has a short barreled rifle that almost looks like it has a bayonet lug on it.

This last picture hangs in the clubhouse of the New Braunfels schuetzen verein.  It is Mr. Uhl and Gus Heye of the San Antonio Schuetzen verein.  I always thought they looked enough alike to be brothers.

The seventh picture up from the last one here is appreciated not just because the lady is very pretty but because I can't remember seeing a Zimmerstutzen in a photo before.

I think that is Jim Clyman, not Jim Bridger.

I believe #5 is Jim White one of the greatest buff runners.  He developed the stand method.  He taught the Mooar brothers who made buff hunting an industry. 

No. 7 appears to be a military sharps "sporterized".

I presume that Bill Cody's rolling block in picture two and in the one of his Scouts of the Plains stage troupe is the famous Lucretia Borgia before it got broken up.

Also, I'm pretty sure that the man in the last photo is Jim Bridger, sans Hawken.

Bill Lawrence


I may be wrong but I thought that Lucretia Borgia was a trapdoor Springfield. The remaining part is in the Cody museum but it was several years ago I was there and I don't remember looking at it in detail.

JS47 is exactly right.  That is, I meant to write "trapdoor", which is what the rifle is and also what the photo shows, but somehow it came out "rolling block" and I didn't even catch it.  Let's chalk it up to yet another Old Age Brain Fart.

If I recall correctly, it was a model 1866 in 50-70.

I swear this pandemic has all but made me brain dead.  Yes, Lucretia Borgia was/is a .50-70 trapdoor.  Yes, the first photo shows a rolling block.  Perhaps the military form of both rifles was what confused me, but that's still hardly an even remotely acceptable excuse.  SIGH!

If it's any consolation it helps my self esteem to know that some one else goes brain dead too. Smiley

The Rolling Block in the first photo of Cody looks to me like it has the "Mule ear" type of block like the Swedish military models. Did other models have this feature or could the rifle be a Swede?
