Carbine is not Sharps but Remington Rolling Block. Among the "Moukhala Musket" there is a number of common hunting shotguns, for example on Cobra Verde rifle 4 12.jpg. --Greg-Z (talk) 01:32, 1 May 2020 (EDT)

Could a rifle be something like a Gewehr 71 placed in a wooden stock? --Slon95 (talk) 11:46, 1 May 2020 (EDT)
Custom stock is a best guess. The base rifle looks more like a small caliber due to very thin barrel. Or maybe I'm wrong...--Greg-Z (talk) 11:55, 1 May 2020 (EDT)
Perhaps one of those .22 single-shot FNs. There are not many known bolt-actions with this position of the bolt. --Slon95 (talk) 12:34, 1 May 2020 (EDT)
Bot action FN of .22? As it can be seen on the page FN, the only .22 rifle of this manufacture, that exist at the 1987, is a pump-action FN Trombone. Pyramid Silent (talk) 15:59, 1 May 2020 (EDT)
At least FN Model 1912, maybe more models. --Greg-Z (talk) 16:10, 1 May 2020 (EDT)
A great thanks! I had add this information. How do you think, is the page correct now? Pyramid Silent (talk) 16:46, 1 May 2020 (EDT)
