Around here the stories are not so romantic.

A local ex-gunsmith just finished repairing the tangs and stocks on a dozen 1894’s, all broken over the years by sheepherders when they rolled horses over on them.

I have one in the shop right now that the rear tangs and stock were broken some 40 years back when a local rancher decided to beat a coyote to death rather than waste a bullet.
