They were the pinnacle of single shot, metallic cartridge simplicity and were made in a multitude of calibres, for sporting, hunting and military purposes and can be found in a hundred varieties around the world. They were the most popular hunting rifle in the old west and in large part almost made the buffalo extinct. A classic.
