A PC muzzle

This Philippine Constabulary Officer was showing off a bit (circa 1908-09). Too bad he didn't show more of the short rifle!

Unfortunately this sentry is 'blurred' and his sight is out of focus.

Dang, they took them young in the Constabulary!

Looks to me - when I squint - that the muzzle shot has a 1901, and the sentry an 1898 or 1902.

And, FWIW, while all of the kudos in the world are due to 5MF for his herculean efforts, sometimes I cannot, no matter how hard I try, follow his logic. He may very well be right (and I hope he is) as regards Whig's rifle, but I do not know what (specifically) tells him that.

'Deputy Sheriff' appears to have a model 1899 carbine or cut-down rifle, with improvised sling.

(Photo is mixed in with Philippine Constabulary pics. I don't know if Deputy Demapa is in P. Constabulary or another Force).

Same "uniform", location, and time of day, as Sgt. Agaya, "5th Mountain Co.".

Since we're on the PC craze I'd thought I would post this cool looking airsoft rifle... I think it was posted once before?

Well, here it is again:
