I made this weapon for a friend of mine, Philip Garcia who is working on a Spanish soldier from the Spanish/American war.  Philip gave me the raw materials for it and I ended up using three different rifles for this weapon.  It was not a difficult build as I only had to use the butt, receiver and barrel from the three different weapons and mate them up.  Philip will be painting this one and sending in finished pictures later.

This is the picture that led to the creation of this rifle.  I will hopefully get to post a picture of the completed figure when Philip is done with it.
