    Whichever gun picture #4 is, it was made in Belgium. So was #10.

    This may get you more info if you were to start individual threads for these rifles. And lots of pics for each.

    You need to start three threads, one for each rilfe, with a bunch of pictures for whichever particular rifle you are asking about.
