Congrats! I have one very similar; serial number 18,xxx - manufactured in 1908. It was my grandfather's who I assume traded for it (he sold made and sold corn liquor in West Tennessee up until the 60's or so). Neither he nor my dad are still alive to ask. My brother and I have a handful of antiques from them, and I'll have to say that this is for sure my favorite. [Linked Image]

I also found a number of old adds for these a while back - at some point I'm going to make a display case and do some photoshop work to merge a few of these together.

welcome

Very cool stuff! It's interesting the one ad lists "Schuetzen Target Ranges." Very few people even know what that is anymore. There's a few clubs around Fredericksburg. They were more than shooting competitions, they were a major social event!

Thanks for posting. up

Great find on the images. Could you imagine going into Bass Pro, Cabelas or Academy and asking for a box of .303 .20 Paper Patched ammo. I bet the look on their face would be priceless.

Very cool guns, congrats on snagging that fine rifle Colt45.

WestTN_TX welcome to the forum, pull up a stump and hang out a while.

Back in the day they did lots of things with one rifle by varying the ammo used like shown in the add. I have loaded and shot a few paperpatch loads for the 45-70. it is interesting and fun and not htat bad once you get it down.
