Default A BURNING question(for me)

As stupid as this may sound , I have been watching the Andy Griffith show probably since it first came on the air. I love the old black & white ones best.
My question is... has anyone ever looked at the rifle rack on the wall and wondered what they were? The types,the makers and what has happened to them? I can pick out some as being pump actions and bolt. Colts, Mausers? Hmm...
I will always wonder.

Andy: What are you doing?
Barney Fife: Gun-drawing practice, ten minutes every day. If I ever have to use this baby, I want to teach it to come to papa in a hurry.

My brother-in-law is an avid gun collector he has asked same question before on how many rifles and shotguns can you identify in the show,he said he seen an M-1 for certain because he owns one.

What's in the rack in Marshal Dillon's office?

I don't know, and I can't tell either.

I used to pick out the rifles as I owned them...
And I'm told they were just prop pieces taken out of storage at random for each seasons shooting.
(the way most sets are put together if I understand correctly)

There are at least two '92 lever guns, one pump, at least one SxS double, and two Carcano rifles.
One season they had a really nice sporterized Mauser up there, and another time I noticed two Thompsons...

So I'm sure they were snatching things off the war movie sets, all the military rifles were cheap, some of them $18 to $20 apice and a large ring German Mauser 98 could be had for about $60.

Seeing Don Knots sporting a Thompson with a drum still makes me crack a grin!
If the drum was ever actually loaded, you know that thing had to weigh more than he did!

Good eyes AR. The camera never seems to stay on the rack long enough for me to pick em out. I have thought I have seen a Mauser or two also. Those rifles were dirt cheap back then as you stated. Ahhh...a time machine....

OMG! I'm so glad I'm not the only one....... I can't watch a movie or TV program without checking out the guns and trying to see what they are. If for some reason I can't figure it out, it drives me crazy!!!!
