Need help opening a .rar file

I have 2 files that were sent to me containing pictures of a shotgun and the files are compressed with a .rar extension. I and several of my friends are not able to open these pictures (tried Winzip)and I have been unable to make contact with the sender.
Anyone willing to give this a try?
PM me or e-mail and I will forward the file(s)

Winrar is commercial.

7zip is free.

Gbro, glad it worked out for you, but I deleted your link to the pictures. This isn't the right forum for them, and there's no need for those using this forum to waste bandwidth opening several megabytes of images.
