The win model of '94 original cal 32-20 today it's usually cambered fer 30-30.

The colt SAA in .45 "long colt" 4 5/8" is most popular fer quick draw artists like myself... (Be prepared ta spend a small fortune though)... and good quick draw Leather will cost more than several hundred bucks...):eek:

And, most High-wall Single shots...........

Dead troll souls are warm at night:D.......

There was the Winchester model 1873 which is often mistaken for 1894. There were still alot of black powder pistols and rifles in use at the time as well.

Colt also made a few double action revolvers in 1889. If memory serves they also made some in 1878.
