No Trojan in his collection shown in "Playboy", October 1962







His Christmas present from the "Old Man" was a 16g Sauer

which he was still using in Africa

Fore-end doesn’t look “Trojanesque” to me.

Looks to me like a Trojan.

Nevertheless, smart guy, discriminating man with taste: he's shooting "Old Reliable".
