    Can ya show in the breach or bolt face.
    It might be a pin fire from Europe.
    It wasn't playing the blame game, finding fault, and complaining about every little thing that made America great.
    It was God, guns, and guts.

    It looks kinda like a Green, late 1870/80's. The patent shows it as having a hammer under the bolt.



    Actually, no, it looks like it has a drum near the front of the receiver, so that rules out the Green. I've seen one that has the bolt and a hammer about where that one would be, memory fails me though.

    Experience is a wonderful thing - It lets you recognize a mistake, when you make it again.
