Don't think it was on very long.  You can probably find it on YouTube.

One season, 14 episodes according to IMDb.  In the 70's a full season was 20+ episodes according to Wikipedia.  Guess we'll have to call this one a failure, canceled half way through the season. 

The series isn't listed in the imfdb (movie/TV/video games guns data base) but the still photos I can find have the hero's using 1911's.  The only long guns are machine guns, an unshrouded Lewis Gun and some sort dummied up Vickers or Maxim maybe machine gun with a fluted water jacket (no hose) on an entirely too modern style of pedestal mount.

Bearcats? I don't remember that series.

It only lasted one season.  Stared Rod Taylor and Denis Cole.  Two trouble shooters traveling around in the Southwest U.S. in a Stutz Bearcat in the early 20th century.  The Pilot was good the series itself could have been much better.

I have the complete series.

I vaguely remember it ...looked it up , it was on against the Flip Wilson Show, which I never watched.
At that time there were 3 networks CBS, NBC & ABC ,  I have no clue what I might have watch instead.

I read it wasn't for adults. "Silly plots, ham-fisted action, stilted performances, repetitive low-budget camera work and soundtrack"

I may have dismissed it  ::)

I was 8 years old and loved it.  One scene sticks in my head in particular:  Using the magneto of the Stutz to set off a dynamite charge.

Sweeeeeeet!

condition? caliber?  *any* numbers match?
now you'll need a stock, a holster, a sam brown belt, and a trunkload of cartridges...

I went to look over my Dad's C96 and it appears to be matching numbers...

Original finish is patinaed, smooth  , numbers match even the Grips
The springs have replace with Wolf , but comes with the OEM springs, good riffling in 7.62 Mauser.

I'll need to find some rounds

A bit of a thread drift!

A friend asked a question on facebook about the firearms used in Indiana Jones. I tried to post a link to IMFDB on FB and was refused due to "community standards"?

Nice pistol!  You probably know this but make sure you use 7.62 Mauser ammo in it NOT 7.62x25 Tok ammo.  The 7.62 Tokarev ammo interchanges but it much hotter.  IIRC around 1400 FPS.

My own C96 (1930s) was rebored when brought in to 9mm. I would also warn about using anything but target loads in one like mine. Personally I use the Winchester 115g target ammo.

Ah My Dear Sir C ....

firstly, glad to see you around again!

secondly you know its not really safe to be using FB, nicht wahr?

third, if you "have to" post something forbidden, try using "tinyurl" to obfuscate the offensive thingy...

PM me and I can walk you thru it...

Bearcats! ... loved that show, for its entire brief life! (11 episodes)

I once put this photo montage together for another thread about the show, somewhere ...
