The popularity of 1883, prequel to the popular Yellowstone series, is reigniting some interest in the original guns of the old west. A reproduction can be a great lower-cost option, but there’s no topping the real thing.
RIAC Senior Firearms Describer Austin Ellis takes us through a few options in the upcoming S&C Auction that have enjoyed a spike in popularity thanks to their cameos in the 1883 series. Not only are they authentic examples you don’t typically find at your LGS, they also have the look and can be obtained at an attractive price.
