Default Been watching too many Western’s lately.

I have a Lyman Great Plains after watching “The Revenant”. An Uberti Walker after watching “The Outlaw Josey Wales”, an 1858 Pietta New Army after watching a Civil war movie, and now I want this for no reason at all, other than it doesn’t really fit in any historical category.

Maybe the little kid in me is taking over. I can get a new copy for $380, but I am not sure. I need some motivation from you fine folks that like to spend other people’s money. Haha.

Don't watch Fury - Sherman tanks tend to leak oil, your wife will hate you.

And definitely avoid anything to die with collecting paratrooper guns.

they sell on line for $500 so if you can get it for $380 you might consider it. https://fcsutler.com/fccwrevolvers.asp is a site that handles them. they also sell extra cylinders for them since they are highly polished steel.

My wife inherited a few Uberti replicas of
Colt SAA Army and Remington Army 1875

You think man, there is more work to do now but they are
surprisingly fun, my group really enjoyed seeing just how "man with no name" you can get with them. Not very of course. LOL

Don't watch the 1966 movie, Hombre, with Paul Newman, unless you intend to hopelessly attend worthless Cal gunshows looking for a cool looking lever gun.

Yes! A half magazine Winchester 73 with a round barrel. I remember it well. Also, do not watch Quigley Down Under. It will cost you.



But I sold two and kept the one i liked best. The plain one on the bottom.

I grew up watching westerns, but oddly enough, I always gravitated towards WWII GI stuff.

This is some of my WWII collection.

By the way, that little laser engraved .44 is pretty nice. I always liked them and they aren't expensive at all.

Didn't mean to start a thread jack....

I suppose that happens when you watch too much television. Spending $380 bucks on a complete black powder pistol isn't too bad. No need to buy brass and dies.

The nice part about collectors is we all have our favorites and like to show them off here. If it brings smile to your face to own it then buy it. Without this thread we would not see all of these nice well cared for weapons from our past. Thank you

AMC did a John Wayne marathon Christmas day... it was inspiring. I already have a few JW replica lever actions, but I think I need a few period correct wheel guns.

I watched a late Steve McQueen film called Tom Horn - the '76 lever action is a doozy.

I did watch Quigley a few times and did want a Sharps Rifle. I may have to save a few more years. I couldn’t believe how expensive they could get.

I didn't care for lever-action rifles until I watched "The Rifleman" years ago. Then, I just had to get two Marlins.

I didn’t even need to watch a movie and I had to pawn shop score a Taurus clone of a Colt Lightening in .45. I’ve at least been able to combat my desire for some crazy rifle every time I’ve seen quigley down under.

You weren't watching Hombre close enough, that wasn't a '73, it was a '76, it's big brother. If you catch the scene where it shows his ammo, it's a fat bottleneck cartridge, either a 45/60 or more likely a 45/75.
Quigley used a .45/110 Shiloh Sharps in the movie, but the ammo in his belt was .50/140 Sharps.
Steve McQueen's "mares leg" was a Win 1892 in 44/40, but his ammo belt was loaded with 45/70. Never did see him load that rifle from his belt.
I often wonder watching those old westerns, what happened to those guns. That button mag '76 Newman used would bring a hefty price even if it wasn't used in the movie.

Well, the Sharps Rifle fever has hit me hard. A friend of mine and I are planning a “Big Timber Montana Run 2020”. We plan to save a few pennies and buy a Shiloh Sharps or C Sharps Rifle. I figure a model 3 sporter with the upgrades I want will be around $3500.

I know we can order online, but this will give time to save some money, do a little research, and see the rifles in person before ordering. It may be 3-4 years before we get our rifles but we will have an epic road trip and customized rifles that make us happy.

I watched some cowboy action videos on Youtube and look at me now. I watch westerns and want their hats

Tombstone leather rig (out of San Diego), Ruger New Vaqueros, Stoeger Coach gun, and Uberti '73.
For Wild Bunch I'm using a Springfield 1911 loaded, Uberti '66 in 45 colt, and a replica Winchester 97

I'm of the firm belief that one cannot call oneself a "gun collector" if all one has are modern firearms. True gun collectors acknowledge history by owning something from the past, or at least a modern-made replica if a real one is too pricey.

Go ahead and support your habit, buy what you see and like. Shoot it and be happy.
