Actually there is a little bit of scenery at the west edge, in the mountains.

How quickly should they have realized that it was in their best interest to perform a three point turnabout?

It's pretty f*cking amazing to be investigating some cattle rusting and then at the same time arrest people for meth, guns, stolen auto parts, possibly a stolen car, I mean, they f*cked up and I'll bet they regret that.

I do own a sweet .45/70 double that was probably built to take on a train-borne buffalo hunt, though...

I don't own a ton of guns, but my next purchase will almost certainly be a winchester 1873. the modern version that is.

I stole that one, only reason I bought it. Guy who built it was a highly-regarded shotgun maker, right at the end of hand-making guns, only made rifles on request of VERY good customers. The only other one of his rifles I've been able to find any record of sold at Rock Island Auction in September of 2018 for $34,500. This one came up the following March and somehow got overlooked, hammered at $4,000, plus premium.

I don't think so.  The construction of the Henry receivers is not even close.  What matches the receiver is the Rossi Model 92 in .45 Colt, including the loop (or saddle) ring.  If you need more evidence, look at the construction of the bolt (about 1/6 down the page) to the bolt in TFA.

Appears that the gun in TFA has been cut down to a SBR (is that legal in Canada?) and has lost its bluing.

this post is top shelf in every respect. i salute you.

and came here to ask about the rifle, i wondered if it was a ... whatchamacall it... martini henry thingy? those things the red coats used to subdue all those nice black folks down in south africa with? and by subdue i mean, yknow, kill.

before my era... if its not a bolt action which was used in ww1 or 2 i'm generally not interested.

And, ironically, wrong. I was assuming it was a cut-down job by somebody wanting a short rifle but the Henry Rifle Company makes them like that, the clean front sight should have tipped me off, nobody butchering a rifle goes to the trouble to reinstall a sight that well.

The Martini-Henry was a single-shot drop-block.

I could be wrong again, but I don't think so. It would be vanishing rare for anybody sawing off a rifle to carefully install a front sight like that, but to then fashion a buttplate onto the butchered stock, and have it fir, would be so improbable as to be laughable. The remaining butt matches exactly with the Mare's leg, as does the loop lever.

Incidentally, if it has a saddle ring it would be on the left side of the receiver.

Mares leg is the style but you can get them with or without the large trigger loop. A few manufacturers make or have made rifles in that style.
