Yes, in Wild Bunch the 1911 must be .45 caliber. Rules require a five inch bbl, so no Commander length or whatever.

If you shoot in the Traditional class the pistol has to be a GI type and you shoot one handed. The standard Remington R1 is an example of a current offering that is compliant. Stainless finish is OK.

The Modern class allows some upgrades such as adjustable sights and a beaver tail grip safety but some features like fiber optic sights and flared magwells are not allowed. You can shoot with both paws in Modern.

In either class you need magazines without extended basepads. Holsters are leather or other natural materials such as canvas.

The legal pump shotguns are the Winchester 1897 pump (original or reproduction), 93/97 reproduction, or a Winchester Model 12.

If you want to give it a try, don't let your lack of guns hold you back. Show up with what you have. Bring that Mossy! I bet they will either let you run it for your first couple of matches or someone will lend you a gun or two or even three.

As in cowboy we shoot steel targets and ammo must have all lead bullets. No jacketed, plated or gaschecked.

Gotta go hit the old loading bench; cowboy match next Sunday and Wild Bunch the following weekend.

I attended a "Cowboy" match. They would not allow me to use the magazine on my Mdl. 97 Winchester. The rules on loading and unloading etc, seem oriented to very amateur gun owners. They should have a class for experienced gun handlers.

different clubs have different variations on the rules. there is no SASS rule that says you cant use the mag. you will find minor variations whereever you go.

the club i shoot with has rules saying you cant pick up dropped shells while your event is going no guns in the porta potty stuff like that. they also dq ya for going to the line with a live round in the chamber or under the hammer. lots of it is oriented around safety.
