These came with some photos I purchased. No I.D. at all. MP, your post on the pope barrel reminded me that I had it.

They look like loooong guns.



Some portions blown up






Second one is nicer.

Any ideas about location or era? Looks like one of the NMLRA shoots from the 1930s.

I don't claim to know much about cars, but those cars look too new for the 30's.

cars to me look to be late 30s mostly vintage. No info at all on the photos.

Are those sunshsdes maybe on the tops of the rifles?

Cars are definitely late 30's, pic could be immediate post war. No new cars showing up post-war 'til 46-47.

Tube looks like a tube rear sight. Simply an aperture mounted in the rear opening of the tube- no optics. Used to combat mirage off of a hot barrel, IIRC. Al Freeland sold them through the '70's. Unertl made one that used standard Unertl bases and mounts. Pretty rare now.

The guy in the suspenders looks like Walter M. Cline, early (if not the first?) president of the National Muzzleloading Rifle Association, and the guy for whom the home range of the NMLRA in Friendship, Indiana is named. (Going by illustrations in Sharpe's Complete Guide to Handloading)
