  1. Notes:
  • Make sure both your pairs of Revolvers and Carbines are of the same caliber.
  • Each Team Member should have their own guns.
  • Revolver Barrel must be 4 ¾” or 5 ½”
  • Shotgun and Rifle Barrel must be 20”
  • All guns range from .22LR, .38Spc, .44-40, .44, and .45

The reason for conversion guns and carbines is to be historically correct. Although Buffalo Soldiers used whatever was found on the frontier we want to create a uniformity with military issued weapons. Another advantage is to buy these guns that you can use during static displays.

Categories for Gunfighting
