I looked up the Lincoln assassination pistols caliber because I thought .44 was to big. Doing a quick google I found references to pistols of:

1. .32 caliber
2. .41 caliber
3. .44 caliber
4. .45 caliber
5. .50 caliber



So which is it? Guess I'll have to dig deeper.

I should have known the Browning pistols model. My wife is directly related to JMB's sister Olive Ann.

More Trivia: What guns did the Texas Rangers use in the late 1800's? How did they find them? What caliber?

I am reading a book about Old West guns, the SAA ruled right?

What did John Wesley Hardin & Billy the Kid carry instead?

<­BR>Colt Double Action revolvers! Much easier to use when you were shooting two guns at once.

Again without looking..

The Walker Colts? They were .44 caliber. I'm not sure what you mean about "How did they find them". If I remember from History Channel Walker approached SC about making a larger caliber pistol because the .38's (not sure about this caliber) then in service did not have the knock down power the Rangers needed/wanted.

If it's not the Walker Colts, then I'm clueless. Which is the usual state of thngs.

They found them in an abandoned crate. A good number of them, between 24 and 50 if memory serves.


Why can't people abandon a crate of 1911's near my AO?

I was reading awhile back that about 15 or so years ago a French contractor was bulldozing a field for a construction project. The 'Dozer plowed into the buried corner of a German WWII era bunker/block house. Inside they discovered two sealed crates full of brand new, still packed in grease, MP40s.

Damn, I'd have given my left nut (I already have enough kids) to have been that French 'Dozer operator...... there'd have been at least a couple of those weapons missing by the time the authorities arrived (if they were even called!!).

What did John Wesley Hardin & Billy the Kid carry instead?


Just watched a special on S&W firearms. They said Harden carried a S&W, Schofield, I believe.

The double action revolvers were their last guns, but Schofields did have a good rep among gunfughters.
Jesse James carried them too.
