Works of art, both. That Tryon wood is especially nice and a little surprising for a Pedersoli.

The Australian "frontier" ran a course from about 1770 up until the 1930's. What was the gun of choice on the Australian frontier and the Australian plains? I'm guessing some American rifles, but British Enfields, and Martini's? mostly?
