No, but i have heard of 50 90

There is a reason why cartidges of the world is bigger than a phone book.

My guess is its a 400ish grain bullet in a 2.5 ish long case with 90 grains of fff. Which should push it to the 1300 ish with black powder.

I've had one of these on my bucket list for years. There are several manufacturers overseas and Shiloh in MT. Shiloh makes rolling block rifles in several sizes, 45/70, 45/90/ 45/110. Caliber with grains of powder determining case size/length. Shiloh's new offering are built for new smokeless powder and higher pressures.

They make a specific Quigley model with longer barrel and other custom features. Standard caliber per the movie is 45/110. The Quigly runs around $3,500. Standard Shiloh's start around $2,100

The model 1874 comes in:

  • .30-40 Krag
  • .38-55 Winchester
  • .40-5011⁄16 BN
  • .40-65
  • .40-65 Win
  • .40-70 21⁄4 BN
  • .40-70 21⁄2 ST
  • .40-90 25⁄8 BN
  • .40-90 31⁄4 ST
  • .44-77 BN
  • .44-90 BN
  • .45-70
  • .45-70 21⁄10 ST
  • .45-90 2 4/10 ST
  • .45-100 2 6/10 ST
  • .45-110 27⁄8 ST
  • .45-120 31⁄4 ST

I have a Shiloh Sharps in 45/90. Had it built probably about 15 -17 years ago. And yes I think it took probably about 2 years but I added extensive engraving. That is kinda a normal wait time on custom guns if not longer with some builders.

They have different chamber sizes! ...But the 45-70 can be shot through the 90 & 110, probably lead up pretty good! :)

Recoil ain't an issue due to the weight of the rifle. The prop gun Quigley carried around in the movie was made of aluminum.
