Here are some pictures of Dan's collection of Paul Wolff 1903's that Dan asked me to post. He will be along at some point to explain.

The top rifle is the one I got last weekend at Tulsa and the bottom rifle was Michaels. Michael wrote his rifle up in Book 2 Page 123-125 as a rifle found in Wundhammers shop when he died. Michael later identified it as being made made by Paul Wolff and it was so listed in the Amoskeag auction #104. JoDo found a file for Paul Wolff in Michaels files which was an article from the 1995 Guns & Ammo Annual and sent me a copy. The photos are not very clear on my copy but I have not been able to find a 1995 issue to get better photos. Anyone out there have a 1995 G & A Annual? The 1995 article covers more than just Paul Wolff and is about '03 rifles. Paul Wolff remodeled issue stocks into sporters.

Dan,

Thanks for sharing. It looks like Tulsa was a worthwhile trip. I find it interesting that the similarities are mixed between the three rifles. One might expect the top two to be closer in appearance, but the bottom one has a couple of features that are close to the top one's. Might be a time vs. style difference.

Fred, thanks for posting.

Thaine

Thaine,

The middle rifle might be the latest since it used a short Lyman 48 which started in 1920.
The top rifle might be early since it has the thinned wrist like the example in the 1995 G&A Annual which is supposed to be one of first by Wolff in 1910.
