For me it would be a pair of Colt navy's and a sharps carbine in 45-70
and I'd ride a pale horse
A .50 caliber Hawken and a Bowie knife.
What's my name?
My Christian name?
I guess I would have to wait 3 years for a Colt single action army.
In 1870... I'd have a couple of .44 caliber Remington's with a extra loaded cylinder or two. For a rifle... Henry lever action.
Brace of 44 Walker Colts and a Sharps 45.70 carbine.
They didn't build a Sharps in .45-70 in 1870. My choice would be Remingtons and a '66 Winchester.
Good choice. Back when I show CAS, the only clean match I ever shot was with a set of conversion Remmies.
I'd have a bumper sticker on my horse's ass that says "I carry a gun because a Sheriff is too heavy."
^^^^ This and a saber.
I seen a movie once, where a feller.....called himself Eastwood, used a stove door as body armor, but that was 1885.
I forgot to mention the Remingtons would be cartridge conversions. Since it is a fantasy situation I would have a non-converted back up in case I couldn't find any ammo. Adding to the fantasy I would have a single shot, long range rifle.
Considering how many have been sent back through time as a result of recoil, I'd look around until I found a G20.
If we could interject a time machine here, it would be a Sig P-220
and a M-4.
And 2 revolvers of some type.
My choise would be a double barrel (short) 10 gauge shotgun.
Mason-Richards conversion of 1860 Colt and 1868 Yellowboy, both in .44 Henry.
Whoops, messed up. The conversion came in 1871. And was in .44 Colt. But the Yellowboy is still good to go.
Two Walker Colts (cartridge conversions), a Sharps lever action 45-70 and a Bowie knife.
Liver Eating Johnson was far far more of a bad ass than the movie showed.
Sharps carbine in .50-70 govt. A navy .36 or two, cartridge conversions if available. Bear in mind that most cartridge firing handguns were still a year to five years down the road in 1870.
it's my understanding the sharps factory made them in this caliber as sporting rifles ....
