Tradition, history and American craftsmanship combine to create today's Harrington and Richardson rifles, continuing a legacy that began in 1871. The Harrington and Richardson 45/70 Government Buffalo Classic is a true American classic. Modeled after the Frank Wesson tip-up rifle that were first made in Worcester, Massachusetts in the 1850s, this rifle fills the need of the long-range Cowboy Action Shooter as well as those who simply enjoy shooting these great old cartridges. Our Golden Buffalo Classic reflects true 19th century styling, including antique color case hardening on the frame and crescent butt plate, plus cut checkering on their American black walnut stocks and fore-ends. The distinctive gold embellishment and special serial number range offer the shooter, collector a superior grade rifle and an outstanding value.
