Winchester 1907, 351 converted to FA by HS Lebman. Recovered at the Dillinger gang arrest in Tucson.
This is one converted to the HS Lebman specs but semi auto as original. Restored.

Sandy,
You need to retake the picture with a better background. Put it on a white bath towel.
If you own a Winchester M94 30-30, you have the makings to do a re-enactment picture of the guns recovered from the little Bohemia raid. Just lay the proper guns on the floor next to your cast iron stove, dress in a beatup dark jacket and have your wife snap a pic. Lets see how close you can come.

HAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA, I do have all the guns, but can't do the Elmer Fudd outfit of the guy pointing to the display. I believe that was taken in the Nelson cabin at Little Bo.

Nothing , it's a old leather take-down case for rifles or shotguns. Split compartment, I've had it for many years. Winchester offered one just like this in their 1916 catalogue the W-15 $ 5.00- Probably take the 07 just fine by taking the front grip off. No reason to tho-
Normally the outlaws rolled the guns in a lap blanket in the back seat, or if they had a car trunk, like in Tucson, they would unlatch the trunk from the car and carry it in- Some trunks had a set of fitted luggage too. Common for travelers. Yes a pain, but this was 1933-34.

here's something interesting I ran across.

 

I wonder if there were any 03/07's in the larger calibers made like this

I forgot to get back to this... As far as anything listed in the Henwood book, 1905, 1907 & 1910 Winchester SLR , there is nothing listed for type of feeder system.
Pretty damn cool tho-
