Ian asked me to post this picture. What kind of a gun is/was this?
Thats a Badtoholz Sparkenfluggenmetalgespittzen Model 1369.
New Savage gone bad.
Since Mythbusters pretty much debunked the splitting barrel stories, (at least for the barrel end) this is going to be intriguing.
I was going to say an airgun, not a regular gun, since I see no powder residue as I would expect around a burst barrel if it was a powder gun.
However, it is a Savage Model something.
Is that a sight screw hole that initiated/divided (?) the split
Lot ot tooling marks visible in that Savage barrel, I'm somewhat surprised to see that... (They are however nice and evenly spaced.)
You guys are good...
How do you know it is a Savage? By the way, the rifle is in a holder, that is what the outer black sides are.
Now, what type of rifle is it:
Centerfire rifle or in-Line Muzzleloader
Get it right and Len might show another image of the complete rifle.
I'd have to guess muzzleloader...
I'd guess Model 10ML SS
Split under the rear site.
Don't know the model but the glass must be that expensive stuff
Note that cool concave bottom on the objective.
I'm guessing a muzzle loader.
You guys are correct. Someone apparently loaned his Savage in-line to a friend who loaded it but did not fire a shot. Gave it back to the owner and he also loaded it, and fired it. Load was the standard charge of smokeless suggested by Savage, 250 grain sabotted bullet. Amazingly he is OK.
Perhaps Len can put up the other image I sent now, since you guys got it so quick. Good work. Buffalo, go to the back of the class...
I'm guessing muzzle loader, if it was a rifle I'd expect to be able to make out the twist on the rifling, since I can't I'm guessing it's a real slow twist, thus a smokepole.
oops too late.
It may just be me, but I believe it actually says SAVAGE on the side of the barrel just ahead of the scope. Am I reading that incorrectly?
Looks like a hole drilled to deep.
