    I'm a rifle owner (new to the gun world) and a long time fan of Jimmy Stewart. The rifle in this film, does anyone know what caliber it is? I tried to take a screen shot, but my computer won't let me when the DVD player is open. Whatever it is, I :love: it

    They were originally chambered in .44-40, .38-40 and .32-20 but it's hard to say
