  • What guns were popular in Wild West? (~1880)

    Just curious... What were they using back then? what kind of revolvers, shotguns, rifles etc

    I blieve .22lr was popular back then? .45 colt???

    I want to buy a nice wild west cowboy style rifle and pistol

    The win model of '94 original cal 32-20 today it's usually cambered fer 30-30.

    The colt SAA in .45 "long colt" 4 5/8" is most popular fer quick draw artists like myself... (Be prepared ta spend a small fortune though)... and good quick draw Leather will cost more than several hundred bucks...)

    And, most High-wall Single shots...........

          The Winchester 1894 wasn't invented until well 1894. 1880's was the period right?

                Shotguns were usually break open singles or doubles side by side.

                          There was the Winchester model 1873 which is often mistaken for 1894. There were still alot of black powder pistols and rifles in use at the time as well.

                          the 1873


                          Almost forgot about the Spencer



                          The henry



                          Marlin 1881 45/70


                          Winchester 1887

                          The early bird may get the worm, but the second mouse gets the cheese.
