About this mod

A collection of the best 19th century western guns found on the Nexus.

Permissions and credits


Over the past two years I have been working on a compilation pack of all
Western guns of reasonable to good quality that I could find. I found it to be
a chore to install all the original mods separately, and revising the stats,
finding them in the game world, fixing the bugs etc. So I wanted to wrap it
into one pack, which is easier to maintain. The pack contains about 20 guns
now, not counting texture variations and modded weapons.

From the back of my mind, these are some of the changes/features I applied:

- All guns, mods and ammo are available from a single container in Goodsprings
  Cemetary, lockpick 100 required. Or use the console cheat to unlock.

- All guns, mods and ammo are distributed through leveled lists. Vendors will
  have the guns, mods and ammo and NPC's carry the guns and ammo and can be

- All stats were revised. I included an Excel sheet with all modifications.

- All guns are buffed by the Cowboy perk.

- Derringer, Colt Paterson and Colt Pocket can be used as Holdout Weapons.

- Fixed some bugs, namely the Colt Supernatural damage stats, the reloading
  animation and sound of the Colt Pocket, the world models of the Deathwish
  modded versions, and the silencer sound of the Type II Winchester.

- To keep things Old-West-lore-friendly I have removed most weaponmods, like
  scopes, and suppressors. The Remington Rolling Block rifle still has a period
  accurate Malcom Scope.

- All meshes and textures are untouched, I did not alter anything in those
  files except file paths in some cases. I don't even have a clue how to design
  3D models so rest assured I will not mess with the designs of the original

I did a LOT of playtesting and I think everything works as it should. Holla at
me if it doesn't.

Currently this is the list of guns along with some miscellanious information
for gun buffs, credits to the original authors, and links to the original mods:

- Colt 1836 Paterson
- Colt 1836 Supernatural

This was the first revolver with an auto-rotating cylinder. It had a rifled
barrel that made the gun fairly accurate. Reloading the cylinder of early
models was a lot of work because the gun had to be partially dissasembled.
That's why some users carried multiple preloaded cylinders in their belt,
a dangerous practice.

The Supernatural is a fantasy model from a TV show that I have never seen. It
is severly overpowered and takes special bullets. It kills deathclaws with one

tf3dm.com site for the model

- Colt 1849 Pocket

This was the equivalent of the modern day snubnose revolver. Quite inaccurate
and only useful at short range. Point of impact was generally a foot or more
above point of aim at only 25 yards. I have replicated this in the stats, it
has a high spread. But it also has high criticals.

- Colt 1851 Navy

A very popular and reliable model back in the days. Successor of the much
larger Walker/Dragoon revolvers and predecessor of the Colt SAA (Peacemaker).
It was used by Eastwood's character in The Good, the Bad, and The Ugly.

Eprdox for making the original mesh
DylanF1 for converting to .nif format
TheBlob2 for making it work with the .357 reload animations
ewi65 for making it look pretty

- Colt 1855 Revolving Rifle
- Colt 1855 Revolving Rifle Black

A bit of an anomaly, this was a rifle with a revolving cylinder as opposed
to the later Winchester lever-action systems. Not exactly a succesful
design due to the gas leaks that could burn your left forearm. And on occasion
Colt rifles discharged all their rounds at once, endangering the shooter.
However I gave this gun powerful stats because I like to use it. The black
version still has its (unrealistic) scope, and it is even more powerful.

Hitman47101 for the animation

- Colt 1873 Peacemaker
- Colt 1873 Peacemaker Black

The most successful and recognizable revolver of all time. It was so popular
with Western pioneers, peace officers, gunslingers, outlaws, cowboys, and the
military that it is commonly called "the handgun that won the West".

- Remington 1858 Black
- Remington 1858 Engraved

Due to a fire in the Colt factory in 1864 people started to use Remington
revolvers. Not a bad choice because these guns turned out to be very durable,
very accurate, and capable of considerable power.

- Remington 1858 Conversion
- Remington Big Steel

Like the above, but converted for metal cartridges, which was a thing back in
the days. The Conversion is for .357, the Big Steel is for .44 and has higher

- Remington 1866 Derringer

This famed gun was obviously only effective at very short range and very
inaccurate. I gave it high spread and high criticals.

Original mod: https://www.nexusmods.com/newvegas/mods/50872
Original author: MagicalBunny

- Remington 1867 Rolling Block Rifle

I never knew this gun existed (in the real world) until I noticed 45LongColt's
mod page. This gun was sturdy, powerful and accurate, used by Custer's regiment
at Little Big Horn, and by many Native American Braves. I have given this gun
somewhat lower stats than the Buffalo Rifle, and it too has the paralyzing effect
on critical hits.

- Remington 1875

Remington's answer to the Colt SAA Peacemaker.

- Sharps 1874 Buffalo

Iconic gun which was popular among Buffalo hunters. It was the sniper rifle of
the Old West, being very accurate at long distances. Features in many
Westen-genre movies and books. I have given this gun high stats, and it has the
paralyzing effect on critical hits. You can easily take on deathclaws with this.

Paul Fish for the rifle model

- Springfield 1863 Musket

Primarily used by the Army, the Springfield 1863 is notable as the last
muzzle-loaded firearm produced by the Springfield Armory. These were later
converted to rear loading (breech-loading). Game version takes special
Springfield bullets available in shops (but rare).

- Winchester 1855

There is no such thing as a Winchester 1855, but I included this because I like
the model.

Original mod: https://www.nexusmods.com/fallout3/mods/18704
Original author: LilaMue

- Winchester 1866

The first Winchester rifle. Nicknamed the "Yellow Boy". It was famous for its
rugged construction and lever-action "repeating rifle" mechanism that allowed
the user to fire a number of shots before having to reload.

- Winchester 1873
- Winchester 1873 Classic

The Model 1873 was one of the most successful Winchester rifles of its day,
with Winchester marketing it as "The Gun That Won the West". The stuff of
Hollywood movies.

- Winchester 1887 Coach Gun

The Model 1887 was one of the first successful repeating shotguns. It was
used on stagecoaches. This is the shortened "Mare's Leg" version.

- Winchester 1876 Onyx

The Winchester Model 1876, or Centennial Model, was a heavier-framed rifle than
the Models 1866 and 1873, chambered for full-powered rifle cartridges, rather
than the handgun-sized rounds of its predecessors. It had a reputation as a
durable and powerful hunting rifle. A '76 was also found in the possession of
Apache warrior Geronimo after his surrender in 1886.

- Winchester 1894

Not exactly Old West anymore I suppose, but the model is so well done that I
wanted it in the mod. And it was in reality a model that could be fitted with a
suppressor. The Model 1894 has been referred to as the ultimate lever-action
design by firearms historians. It is one of the most famous and popular hunting
rifles of all time.

richardsaffrie - win94 Model
8sianDude - suppressor (and textures for it)


- Colt 1855 Revolving Rifle: I would like to replicate the gasleaks of this gun
  by implementing a slight chance of limb damage for the player upon firing.

- Maybe put all the guns on the wall in Goodsprings Saloon, or in a museum in
  Goodsprings, instead of in a box in the cemetary.

But currently I don't have a clue how to do these things.
