The Cowboys and Indian Store has been serving the Cowboy Action Shooter for over 14 years by giving them what they want - guns that are smooth and reliable. We are a full service machine shop including Tig welding, specializing in gunsmithing and quality action jobs on 1866/1873 and Marlin rifles, Colt pistols, Colt clones and Ruger pistols, and the 1897 Winchester pump and most double barrel shotguns. Our mission is to continue to look for ways to improve the cowboy guns to make them run faster, be more reliable and keep you shooting!
