she certainly would have her weapon slung and her back where it would not be constantly in the way

doubt that many resistance fighters had pump action firearms...

anyone pedaling down the middle of the street in civvies on D-Day with a weapon slung over their shoulder would be inviting target practice for snipers...

It's not the accuracy, it's the thought. Maybe Rosie the Riveter did'nt have those big biceps, but the poster got the point across.

Forend is placed wrong for a pump, too close to the receiver.

I propose it’s a Browning Auto 5.

enlarged it a bit and chainset appears to be an ashtabula

head emblem looks to be of the right size, shape and colour for an Arnie

suspect artist based it upon an Arnie Continental...of the early seventies

Appears to be 650B and center-pull brakes, so it's got that going for it.

Follow the brake cables and they are not attached to the front caliper, unless one is entering at the non-drive side brake pad

Also, the dive side fork blade appears to be missing above the caliper pad.

Finally, has the unique Cino bi-axial front hub but with two demi-axles and flanges that are eccentric to each other.

An Auto 5 doesn't have a mag tube full length under the barrel. Looks like a lever gun to me.

From the profile and the protruding bolt handle, the artist probably used a modern extended tube competition semi-auto shotgun to model in the studio.

What's something vaguely similar in profile our D-Day girl could possibly have been armed with after 5 years of Nazi occupation? An 1886 8mm Lebel carbine? A rare WWI-surplus FN A5/Remington Model 11 extended tube shotgun?

If I'd set up the studio shot, what would I have used? Probably a more believable (airsoft) Schmeisser...and a bike without extension levers!
