    Cabela's used to carry that rifle, but I don't know if they still do.  It's a single shot 45-120... 
    he said it was a 45-110-540 in the movie
    I think you're right about the caliber.  I checked Cabela's to see if they still carry it, and they only have a 45-70 version of it now.
    The original movie rifle was made by Shiloh Rifle and is still available, in 45/70 and 45/110.

    Thanks for the info!  I may get one some day, but $3,500 is mighty steep.  I wonder who made the one Cabela's carried, because it was about 2 grand less.

    They used to be Pedersollis and their pricing has gone through the roof on those.  The days of finding them for reasonable money are over.  Uberti makes a "Down Under" version for $2,500.

    The original Quigly rifle was/is on display at the Bass Pro museum here. I got to see it, and drool.

    I didn't see Burt Lancaster mentioned, so some of you may have missed these, among several others I don't recall:

    The Unforgiven
    Lawman
    Ulzana's Raid
    Valdez is Coming
    The Professionals

    Also, Kirk Douglas made some good ones (and some bad ones)
    Rory Calhoun made some decent ones.

    Joel McCrea was one of the best horseback riders, ever, as was Gary Cooper, and of course Ben Johnson.

    Walter Brennan was the best sidekick in the business, western or not.

    John Ireland was a good supporting actor, as was John McIntire
    Alan Ladd was pretty good
    Jack Elam played some great western parts

    Leo Gordon, R. G. Armstrong, Robert Wilke, and Morgan Woodward were the best western villains ever.

    Bruce Cabot, Harry Carey, Sr. and and Millard Mitchell were old time stars that lasted into the era of the really good westerns in the 40's and 50's.

    +1 on Val Kilmer.  One movie made him a western legend.
    Knowledge is essential to living freely and fully; understanding gives knowledge purpose and strength; wisdom is combining the two and applying them appropriately in words and actions.

    I already mentioned him, but I need to add that Rex Allen was a real cowboy from Willcox, Arizona, and the name of his horse was Koko.

    The rifle carried by Cabela's is made by Pedersoli..

    Interestingly....Uberti Sharps are re-branded Pedersolis..... Don't think that has changed in the last few years...The handguns that Pedersoli sells are re-branded Ubertis...
