Interesting, glad you had an observant eye.
Just picked up a copy of the book via Amazon, look forward to reading more about Mariano. Thanks for the lead.The Medina rifles (2) were in the Loveland CO museum for years, same place as Zethel Gates who wrote about Mariano Medina: "Colorado Mountain Man". Boulder: Johnson Publishing Co., 1981.
The rifle that Jim Gordon has was stolen and recovered several times before the family sold it. We were at the making of the movie "Dull Knife" near Greeley CO when we saw it as a prop sold to the movie company by a painter that worked at the museum. Each time it was contractors employees that took the gun.
