It is still a good looking piece of firearms history (I really like the looks of the scrolled trigger guard / grip and crescent shaped butt) even if it is a wall hanger. Thank you for sharing!I had not seen that video, very interesting. The bore in mine is pretty well shot as the old 'black powder' used in ammo back then really ate the metal. And this gun had not been cleaned in many years. A neighbor gave it to me, didn't want it.
https://www.nationalgunforum.com/faq.php?faq=vb3_reading_posting#faq_vb3_attachmentsHave no clue how to post pictures but i have a combination gun/garden from years gone by.
Very small, side by side, 22 rimfire- 9mm rimfire shotgun
About the size of a Chipmunk gun.
Rabbit ears and in very good shape. Might be German made.
Your receiver is marked 1894? That is interesting. The picture you posted is of a m94-14. I actually like the look of the pre-1914 such as yours better. To me it looks more elegant without the bayonet lug. Thank you for posting, I am sure your carbine is very nice.Just off the top of my head. I have a Model 1894 Swedish Mauser carbine marked 1894. I may have older functioning firearms in my collection but I'm not going to go check. I do not post pictures of my firearms but it looks like this.
Seen this??? Showed up 10/14 on a FB Webley site!!If he had them with him at the battle they probably ended up with one of the victors. I'd imagine if they ever resurfaced and were verifiable they would be pretty valuable at auction.
Hope things are well for you in Almost Heaven. I lived for a few years in Summers County about 11 miles west of Hinton.
