    A new exhibit was added in 2012 to the National Firearms Museum.
    The Theodore Roosevelt Collection. I was surprised to see a suppressed rifle in the museums catalogue.
    Here's a link describing a favorite model '94 30/30 that he used to rid his property of varmints.

    You're right, it is a Maxim suppressor. In 1930 you could buy one at a hardware store for $38.00.

    My Grandma told me my great granddad used to hunt with Teddy when he was in the Dakotas. Great granddad was the superintendent of Pine ridge and Rosebud reservations back then. Teddy would come up for an inspection, then they would go and hunt.

    I remember the NRA doing a short piece on that one. Neat-O beyond description. And a reminder of a time pre-NFA bullplop.
