    Fighting Furies Winchester Rifle?

    I have this Winchester rifle and until today had thought it was from a Fighting Furies outfit set or figure and that was just based on the similar look to other FF rifles I have.
    Well thanks to Plaid Stallions and some other online pics of the FF Western Rustler outfit set, it isn't from that set.

    Does anyone know what set or figure this rifle is from? It is 4" and half inches long so I am thinking it is for a 9"-10" figure.

    I checked Big Jim before posting this as he came to mind as a possibility but those rifles have like the knives and other things(axe,etc) I guess the Big Jim "hand helper holder on brackets"

    I checked some Gabriel Lone Ranger listing on Ebay and think that may be it. Thanks!

    Thanks, these are some great looking adventure sets, both the U.S./English versions and the foreign versions. A lot of the foreign(German) sets have that rifle, Don't mess with the Blacksmith cause he has one too.

    It's a beautiful line, the accessory sets are terrific. Isn't that blacksmith apron fantastic? I'd love to collect Gabriel Lone Ranger, but I just can't afford it.

    I do have the European chipboard Dodge City play-set, courtesy of a member. It's expansive and offers varied play/display. I got it because Mego dropped the ball with their American West play-set. The 8" Megos look especially nice in the large LR play-set.

    The blacksmith apron with the tools is great. It only took me two days to figure out that it was a disguise for the Lone Ranger, trying to translate the German description paragraph with "Google Translate" lead me astray, then I found the English version of the set.

    The chipboard Dodge City play-set is very cool,as the saying goes "they don't make them like anymore".

    They sure don't. It's huge and very heavy.
