Nice pic. Confirmed, it's a Peabody, just not sure which model.
Neat looking rifle. Did anybody ever make a replica?

Nice piece on the rifle here Peabody & Martini

One for sale here Adams Guns

They appear rare and the one listed at Adams seems to be a fair example.

Have you guys ever seen an Evans repeating rifle? It was made in the 1860's or 1870's by a dentist. They were leverguns that held 24 to 32 rounds I believe. I saw one in Tom Selleck/ L'Amour movie. I think it was used by Wilfred Brimley's character. I looked around to find it as I'd never heard of such a thing. Really a neat piece of hardware. I would love to find one to add to my collection. I would also love to have one of you guys buy it and donate it to my collection. I'm sure they're not cheap.

Four of them on GunBroker right now, so it looks like they aren't too rare.
Interesting design on the magazine. Guess the Calico helical magazine
was just old technology made of plastic.
