Bottom is double barrel shotty of unknown origin. Middle is Mauser stamped 98 supposedly with eagle and swastika. What's the top one? I haven't seen these in person. Jackson took this pic at a buddy's camphouse 6 months ago and just showed me. Not for sale, I'm just curious til I can see them in person. I like old stuff. Thanks

Middle K98.

Oh man that is sad.... As has already been mentioned, top is a Type 38. Middle is a mid-war (likely 1943, based on the speedmilled bands with cupped buttplate combination) K98 that is missing quite a few parts... Both could potentially be restorable, but the only one likely worth restoring would be the K98.

I would love to own the double rabbit ear shotgun. Probably made around 1880-1905 The butt stock looks nice. Perhaps[ Crescent River Arms \] for one of the many Hardware Stores around US.

Shotgun looks like a Husqvarna underlever model.

It looks like something under the barrels at the front of the forearm. Harrington and Richardson made some forearms Shanable shaped?? I have never seen the Husqvarna shotguns in person.

The piece on the bottom of the forearm on the Husqvarna's is metal and rotates to the side to unlock the action.

Thanks for the responses. I knew I could get some answers here. I hope to see them sometime. Jackson has been going to this camp frequently and I want to see it. Clear flowing creek and old home place with out buildings and slave quarters. They have been camping and fishing

Hmmm, any idea just how old the homesite is? Sounds like you need someone to come and metal detect it ;)
Not yet but working on it. Just heard about it today after the boy has been hanging out there over a year. Head south on hwy 45 to Macon and take the 1st or 2nd left and go 14-15 miles and take a right, it's 5 miles off the paved road. Bout 30 miles off the hiway total. Sorry, but that's the best the boy could do

I have a cousin that will buy every double barrel shotgun I find.. I have sent some like new and some that need the wall. I have several in my collection, most everyone are shooters. Most of the old ones that I run into are old Stevens or Crescent Rivers.They were a great tool for the American Farmer for Home Defense and to put supper on the table.

Phillip, I have hunted in that general area. A little farther down the road out from Suqualac, sp. That was almost 50 years ago. Some of the biggest swamp rabbits I,ve seen.
