It sure is.

What a combo, pistol stock and a real long legged horse.

Do like the scope on the pistol.

Increase size of picture; it's a broomhandle mauser. I wonder if it's the one he carried in the Sudan? One of the first, maybe THE first, to be successfully used in mortal combat.

C96 Mauser. Just pulled it off the interweb. I don’t know anything about the provenance of the photo. But I’m gonna guess maybe post-war German Freicorps ??? Shooting at Commies, maybe?

Just cool azz pic

I used that same weapon on Call of Duty "Plunder" fun!


My LR scope is a Huskemaw Blue Diamond 5-20x50. It's awesome.

Could be. If it's a Luger the scope would have to be offset so the toggle would clear.

And, I see no stirrups on the saddle.

Very interesting ...

Yes, there are stirrups on the saddle. Look close. It is sideways to camera. Hard to see
