Howdy. As you are aware I am a new member so you will have to excuse me if I ask something that has been discussed before. During a recent trip to Alabama, a friend took me to an antique shop to show me a "special" firearm (I am an avid Cowboy Action Shooter). The firearm turned out to be '76 Winchester in .45-60. There was a small bronze plaque on it that said; "Presented to Tom Horn by Al Sieber" or similar words. The owner said it was authenticated as the real thing. Have you heard of this rifle?
Best wishes to all.

Tho not the expert, I thought Mr Horn's rifle wasa Model 93 Marlin 30-30 rifle ( not the carbine) , in spite of the 45-60 reference in the movie. Maybe you saw some sort of a replica?

Hmmmmmmm...

Thanks for your interest!
There are a lot of firearms out there that purportedly belonged to Tom Horn. It's difficult to verify the authenticity, however -- extremely. One thing that can be done, however, is to find an expert (a real expert) who can actually date the type of engraving.
Other than that, be sceptical.

No, this was not a replica. It was an honest-to-goodness '76 Winchester in .45-60

The rifle Horn used in Wyoming at the time of his arrest was a 30-30 Winchester 1894 with a button magazine.

I have not seen anything other than that that can be verified as belonging to him.

Thanks for checking in.

Actually, the best source for reliable information is my book on Tom Horn (Tom Horn: Blood on the Moon), which is history.

You could order it from me, and I can personalize the inscription with my autograph, or acquire it via Amazon.com or used through ABEBooks.com.

Feel free to contact me at info@tom-horn.com.
