Classic Cowboy! Best category in SASS!

I know Henry Big Boy rifles are not allowed in Classic Cowboy. But...it would appear the SH no longer specifically prohibits them, unless they don’t consider it a replica ( neither is a Ruger Vaquero)


seems like the HB used to have very specific wording on HBBs. Am I missing something? (And yes I know no self respecting CC would shoot a HBB!)

Look on page 39 under "Other approved firearms".

Found it!
 

I wonder why it’s not in the category description?

I would not consider the HBB to be a copy or reproduction of any rifle made prior to 1873. It is a brass-framed lever-action but it doesn't look the same at all. They have their own unique profile. The Henry Original (1860) is a different matter.

Because the HBB is not a replica of any of the approved rifles, it is a modern take on a lever action. It looks nothing like earlier rifles.

I’m not arguing for allowing HBBs. but a Vaquero is not an exact replica either.

It depends on the configuration. Talo hammers...no. SASS version...no. An unaltered Vaquero looks pretty close.

To make your point, NCOWS doesn't allow the modified Vaqueros like I have. Only those with Colt-like hammers are allowed. And the HBB isn't allowed.

I would like to state, for the record, that my Rugged Gear Deluxe 4 gun cart is the exact model Wyatt Earp used to tote his guns & gear to the OK Corral & back :P

 

im not pimpin for the HBB, my question is why wasn’t it mentioned in the gun requirements listed in catagory specs on pg 6-7? Only place it’s mentioned is way down on pg 39

As you quoted before:

- Any main match fixed sight revolver may be used.

- Rifles: Any 1873 or earlier manufacture SASS legal rifle or a replica thereof (e.g., 1866 Winchester, 1860 Henry, 1873 Winchester).

 

That said, I personally would welcome a bit stricter rules regarding allowed firearms and their modifications in CC. For example, a 73 with a carbon fiber tube mag would look kind of ridiculous... :rolleyes:    And raise that minimum PF a bit for those big bores! :ph34r:
