By Tom Metcalf-Jackson 6 months ago 201 Views No comments

Legend has it that dime novelist, Ned Buntline, presented special order Colt revolvers with long barrels and detachable stocks to Wyatt Earp, Bat Masterson and other noted ‘Old West’ celebrities. Based on this story, the long-barreled ‘Peacemakers’ with their special target sights came to be called ‘Buntline Specials’. Revolving rifles and carbines were among the first effective repeating rifles. Models produced by Colt were carried in the Mexican War and the Apache Wars of the Old Southwest.
