    Help Identifying Guns In Hunting Picture

    The picture is of a group of hunters (my grandfather second from left) and a whitetailed deer shot near Uvalde, TX around 1914-1918. My grandfather is carrying a Winchester model 1907 (from his personal account) and a Colt Single Action Army, possibly in 38-40 (but not certain). I would like to know if there is anyone out there who can assist in identifying the lever action held by the hunter at left, the open hammer shotgun held by hunter number three and the (apparent) pump action rifle at far right. I am just curious to know what the guns really are. Thanks (click on the image to view a larger copy)

    Added two pictures. Second picture is better of the pump action rifle. third picture is better of the lever action rifle.

    I think the lever action is a Winchester Model 1894/94.
    The pump is a Remington Model 14.
    There is no chance of identifying a double barrelled shotgun from a distant photo.
    I have a few facts and a lot of opinions.

    Guns in Pictures

    I was ready to say Remington 14 on the pump after the first picture, less certain after the second and if that's the same man and rifle in the third picture, standing behind the gent with the Winchester 94, it looks more like a Standard Arms. They were chambered for the Remington rimless .25, .30 and .35 and could convert from pump to semi-auto by manipulating a lever or switch on the action. There was also a pump-only model. That receiver is too flat on top and square at the rear for a Remington.

    Here's a link to a picture.

    Hmm.
    Do you think it is an artifact of the photos that make it look like the pump's tube magazine has the characteristic Remington spiral fluting?

    Cool. Your grandfather is really stylish with his boots, pistol, pocket watch and hat.
