My brother has two guns that he received from a friend and he is trying to find out what they are. they are black powder replicas. I have tried to post the pictures here but I cant figure out how. It would be great if someone could explain to me how to post pictures on this forum so I can maybe identify these guns

    The pistol is either a Tingle Single Shot from the 1950s or 1960s, or it is the Italian copy made by Armi San Marco and imported by CVA. I think the latter because of the brass grip frame and case color receiver.

    The rifle is a Hopkins and Allen "buggy rifle" from the 1960s or so.

    Cody- you are limited to 10 postings here- you may want to delete or combine some of yours to save room. Rifle looks like a Hopkins & Allen underhammer. Numrich of West Hurley NY had a reproduction of it they sold- they seem to bring $2-300, depending on condition.

    Tingle single shot percussion pistol and Hopkins and Allen percussion underhammer carbine.
    The Tingle, I believe was .44 caliber.
    The underhammer was made in 36 and 45 caliber.It initially was sold in rifle barrel length and later in carbine barrel length.
    Numrich Arms in West Hurley, NY originally manufactured the H&A rifles.
    They were later put together and sold by a company in New Jersey.
    I believe there were also Underhammer pistols sold using the same parts.
