EVIDENCE THAT THE DEPOSITORY 
RIFLE WAS NOT THE RIFLE IN THE
FAMOUS "BACKYARD" PHOTOGRAPH

The Sling Mount

One of the inconsistencies in the evidence regarding the rifle is the obvious difference in the sling mounts between the rifle found on the sixth floor of the Texas School Book Depository and the rifle depicted in the famous "backyard photographs", CE 133-A thru C. As the reader can see, the Depository rifle, CE 139, had side mounts for the sling both front and rear:

 While the rifle in the backyard photos obviously has a bottom mount for the sling in front.

CE 133-B also shows the "rope sling" apparently tied to the bottom of the front of the rifle. Had it been tied to a front side sling mount, the knots especially the rear knot, would have been on the "Oswald side" of the rifle and out of the camera's view.
Likewise, CE 133-C also shows the rope tied to the bottom of the rifle at the front and not the side.

 

Although some may argue that the rear sling mount was attached to the side, whether or not it was is irrelevant because the Depository rifle did not have two different types of sling mounts. What IS relevant is the difference between the front sling mount which is on the bottom in the backyard photos and the front sling mount on the Depository rifle which is on the side.
Lyndal Shaneyfelt, the FBI photography expert testified that he had taken photographs of CE 139 ( the depository rifle ) and compared them to the rifle in CE 133-A ( the "backyard photo" ). He told the Commission:
"...I did not find any really specific peculiarities on which I could base a positive identification to the exclusion of all other rifles of the same general configuration." ( 4 H 281 )

In other words, he couldn't positively identify the Depository rifle as the one in the "backyard photograph".

Big surprise, huh ?
 

But wait, we're not done yet.
 

The House Select Committee on Assassinations Photographic experts found that in examining the photos, there were distinctive marks on the rifle in the DeMohrenschildt and CE 134 "backyard" photos that matched the Depository rifle. ( 2 HSCA 428 )
 

But what about the difference in the sling mounts ?
 

It was never addressed.

Be glad to go through that article when published.  There are too many people finding too many faults with the BYPs for them to be anything other than fake.

Also, the ring on Oswald's hand shifts from one to the other.

FIgure that one out. Why would Oswald do that?

Maybe two different people were used to fake these photos, one right handed and the other left.
