Kinda weird Model 8 shooter pic ...

Post by rem81auto »

Bought this original pic awhile ago. I couldn't quite figure out what was being depicted until it arrived and I could scan it and enlarge. The guy has a nice early Model 8 ... odd sights .... . The weird thing is if you look close at the top of the piece of wood laying on top is a figurine/carving ?? of a large racked Mule deer. I wonder if his intention was to use it as a target. Dennis

what an awesome find Dennis :D Like you said, it does look like small deer carvings or something. He's got a cool ammo belt too. Is this photo dated? Looks like the Model 8 has cheeks.

Thanks for sharing it with us, do you mind if we include it in the "vintage pictures" gallery?

Hi Cam, the picture is not dated. The picture is also unique in the fact that it measures only 2 1/4 X 3 1/8 in. The smallest I have ever run across in my dealings with antique pictures .... you are more than welcome to use the pic in the gallery. Dennis

P.S

What's your opinion of the sights ??
