The dark roughout Good Indian Rifle Sheath shown was made for a J. Burrows Carriage Gun. This short barreled side-by-side style shotgun was the rifle of choice for most Stagecoach Guards.
The term “Coach gun” was coined in 1858 when Wells, Fargo & Co. began regular stagecoach service from Missouri to California. They issued short barreled ( about 20 inches) shotguns to their drivers and guards for defense along the difficult and dangerous almost 3,000 mile route. Thus the firearm that the guard carried while he rode up top on the Stagecoach became known as a coach gun. There’s a great scene in the Magnificent 7 with. . .aw here it is – watch it yourself!
