The picture in this link is a little clearer. Rangers Hudson and Hamer have 1894 SRC's. I have one that looks just like it.

Hamer, armed with a Winchester Model 1894 saddle ring carbine, had taken up a position behind a hackberry tree that gave him a good view of the back windows. The possemen opened up, pumping 30 or 40 rounds through the wood walls. Frank held his fire and patiently watched the rear windows. Several times he saw a curtain move, then he spotted the barrel of a revolver protruding from behind the curtain. Hamer quickly drew a bead on the six-gun barrel and squeezed his trigger. The heavy Winchester slug caught the crouching fugitive just under the left eye, ripped downward to shatter his jaw and sever his jugular vein, then passed out of his neck and into his left shoulder, exiting through his left arm. Ed Putnam dropped to the floor and in seconds was dead.
