    Apache Indian with Holstered Pistol and Evans .44 Rim Fire Rifle, ca. 1880s. One of the most unusual yet least known rifles of the 1870s was the Evans repeating rifle. Designed by a Maine dentist named Warren R. Evans. Together with his brother George, who helped perfect the design, they started the Evans Repeating Rifle Company of Mechanic Falls, Maine in 1873. The most unusual feature of the Evans was its magazine capacity, which was more than double the capacity of the Winchester. It held an astounding 34 rounds in its rotary magazine.

    This image depicts an Apache Indian with holstered pistol (holster has rosette cartouche) and a cartridge belt with .44 caliber bullets. He is also holding an octagonal Evans rifle with intricate wood carving. Measures approximately 5.25" x 6.25".

    Poor-good, has crack through middle of photograph, mount has rub.
