No prize, but who can spot what feature they share? It's a little tricky and your eyes alone won't do it. You have to know.

An exposed hammer, walnut furnature, blues steel, cut rifling, a half cick safety, non rebounding firing pin, all designes from the 19th century, open sights


I'll think of a few more similar charistics later.

I mostly got the same as the others. They are all guns. Exposed hammers, barrel bands. But im sure there is something that an average person cant tell.

All are 2nd Party copies. Though, replicas, might be a better term, since they‘re far from exact duplicates.

The Star Rolling Block, presumably Spanish, is a based on of a rifle once made by Remington.

The H&R Trapdoor is a replica of a rifle once made by the U.S. government at the Springfield Armory.

The U.S. Repeating Arms Company Model 94 is a doppelganger of a rifle once made by Winchester (as well as being a Post ‘64 version AND Angle Eject AND with that god awful safety, and therefore triply blasphemous to John Browning original design).

many interesting observations but the feature I had in mind wasn't mentioned in any response. Remember, you can't see it (well, you can in one photo if you look real close).

Hahaha I was looking at the previous posts for some one with the name Banzinga. LOL

I wanted to see who had the right answer but i couldn't find a Bazinga! I take it that, that is a reaction and not a name. ;) My Bad!
