My guess is that American Springfield in "303" was really in 30/03 which was the forerunner of the 30/06 . I may be wrong but it would be unusual to find a springfield in a "303" (and they also have it listed as a "Mauser", I know they made some Mausers in 303?)
Just my 2 cents

Yes, my thoughts exactly !

So Winchester .405 was a 95 & the .32 may have been a 92 in 32/20, for small game ?

Yes it could be a .32 as well as that is listed.

I would think the .32 Winchester Special in the Model 94 would be more useful in Africa.

Good post as always. I thought the scimitar oryx still exists in Texas and possibly even Australia? (could be a similar species ?)




Just finished up mounting my 2 types of Oryx.

Here is my Scimitar !

the swedisch hunter allan lunderquist with a now extinct scimitar oryx shoot with a Schultz&Larsen in 7x61


rare trophy pic showing a scimitar oryx



https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scimitar_oryx
"The scimitar oryx was hunted almost to extinction for its horns.[when?] Its population decline began as a result of major climatic changes that caused the Sahara to become dry. The northern population was already almost lost before the 20th century. The decline of the southern population accelerated as Europeans began to settle the area and hunt them for meat, hides and horn trophies. World War II and the Civil War in Chad that started in the 1960s are thought to have caused heavy decreases of the species through an increase in hunting for food.[5][25] Roadkill, nomadic settlements near waterholes (their dry-season feeding places) and firearms for easy hunting have also reduced numbers.[26"

you can believe it or not "The decline of the southern population accelerated as Europeans began to settle the area and hunt them for meat"
this animal was hunted for centurys this way

Well the last pistol you will ever use.




Very funny advert and comments. One can see the advertising BS was weell and truy alive before the invention of the internet.

Maybe a Walther was good for keeping unruly and unco-operative 'natives' in order?!

Other than guns for bimbos what is a "fire-stone"?

Bad translation perhaps for cartridges or perhaps the age of the advert was still in the transition between cartridge and muzzle loading firearms?

Well done Sarg, Did you take this one in Texas? I would love to know what a hunt there costs? Perhaps PM me? Thanks.

Judging from the other language versions "fire-stone" (German "Feuerstein" or "flint") meant "flintlock". However the French version says "percussion", which would indicate "cap-lock". In any event, "muzzle loading".

yes, I think bad translation

believe they meaning cheap shotguns made by reboring the old BP single shot rifle like the french Gras or the Mauser 71 and real flintlocks, old or new made for the african trade

Giraffe house Zoological Garden in Berlin, probably restored or new made after old pics if destroyed in WW 2 by Villeroy & Boch in 1986. could be the firm also that had made the original before the great war.
notice three are scimitar oryx but one is a addax antelope!







from a time when people understand how to build good looking houses also for animals.

Thank you, yes came out good, I just did some of the grunt work on it !

No this is Australian model, there was a herd or two in Aussie, dont know what happen to them now as Kevin who I did some work for passed away last year just before Matt, terrible year last year !

This was the biggest Bull I could find & have ever seen myself, he goes over 45in, there are some offered in South Africa at good prices some times, dont know the quality of the hunting experience how ever !

Excellent Landcaster.

Thanks very much for posting these vintage snapshots and old photos. From an age long gone and being forgotten and being purposefully written out of history.

Looking at these photos and thoughts of the places and times, I again think I was born a hundred years too late. Making a big assumption of course, that if born a hundred years earlier I would have been in a position to partake!

this old advertisement for a 7,65 Browning/32 Auto Walther pistol got a lot of laughter

with reason as you know don't fight lions or grizzly with a pistol less than 9mm Browning/380 Auto
