IIRC, in the TV series, Davy Crockett carried a flntlock rifle. But his second banana had to make do with a 7mm rolling block. I wonder what those "injuns" thought when steel jacket bullets zipped around their heads at 2200 yards.

And they were making one of the many Custer movies when Golden State had a bunch of Mexican Mausers to lend, so the front ranks of the 7th Cav got trapdoor carbines; the guys in the back were a lot better armed. Now, had Custer's troopers really had...
