Guns of the Wild West (1783-1920)


The Warfighter / Infantry Combat


Rather unsurprisingly, the taming of the American 'Wild West' was handled by none other than the gun.
There are a total of 17 Guns of the Wild West (1783-1920) in the Military Factory. Entries are listed below in alphanumeric order (1-to-Z). Flag images indicative of country of origin and not necessarily the primary operator.


This list showcases firearms that adhere to the 'myth' period of the Wild West - that is, those guns seen during the span romanticized by Hollywood films and other media. This span typically ranges from 1783 to 1920 and is also known as the 'Old West'. The actual recognized span of the true American Frontier period spans 1607 to 1912.
