Was posted on another forum. IT may be a rifle, or a shotgun, i dunno which. Just wondering if anyone can identify it. The guy cant find markings on it.

Looks like some sort of rolling-block action. That's all I can provide.

That's the first gun I've ever seen that I'm actually afraid of :eek:

Looks like a home-made barn gun using parts from other guns.

The action seems to be a Remington rolling block, or at least it's copied from one if it's not.
The trigger appears to be missing, and the guard is misshapen. the metal from the receiver forward appears to have suffered traumatic injury in the past, etc.

It maybe one of those Paki/Afghani copies made by smiths in the Kyber pass region.

Does it have any markings on it? Rifling in the barrel, etc?

First rolling block boat paddle I have ever seen....


I am considered a guy who takes chances in my local group...but I don't think I would be able to produce the cojones to shoot that beast.....

It even looks like a step down from the gun Cpt. Kirk fashioned from scratch to kill that monster on an episode "Star Trek"

I'd venture it's an Arab made (or modified) Remington Rolling Block in .43 Remington. The fittings look hand made, as does the stock.

Some bedouin likely sold that to a tourist when he got his new Enfield.

I think I can go along with Dr. Rob on this one. Looks like a rolling block action mounted into a tree branch.
