Few cartridges still in use today have as long and storied a history as .45 Colt. Dating back to the 1870’s, .45 Colt was developed as a black powder cartridge for revolvers. Today, our selection of .45 Colt lever action rifles and pistols are a favorite among competitive cowboy action shooters, medium and large game hunters, or those who already own a sidearm in the same caliber.

From soft shooting cowboy action loads to “spicier” hunting loads, .45 Colt is the very definition of being a versatile cartridge. Pick up a Henry Big Boy, a Henry Mare’s Leg, and a revolver in .45 Colt to experience a true “trifecta” of shooting enjoyment.
