I believe you can BUT, not in any of the "main battle rifle" categories. I remember reading some discussion about that, probably in the thread about battle rifle standards.

Edit: It would be classified in the "militia class, according to the first post in this thread. Lever action, rifle caliber, under barrel magazine.

Sorry, my computer crashed for a few days.  The Winchester M1876 in NWMP configuration is considered a Militia class weapon.

Hey there guys, here is some info on Birdshead and Bisley Vaqueros. Neither one is allowed in NCOWS, reason being is the Colt birdhead came in DA only and the new Ruger is SA. As for the Bisley Vaqueros the grip is no way near what the Colt was. I own a pair of both and can not use them when I shoot with NCOWS, with SASS it does'nt matter.
By the way I woulld be willing to trade them.

What about the muzzleloading arms and breechloading carbines of the American Civil War era? These were certainly in the time period that GAF states, and many were still in use up until the early 1870's in Army units and later in militia units. I'm thinking of the Springfield and Enfield rifle muskets, the Smith, Maynard, Sharps (percussion), Hall, Gallagher carbines, etc.

No, 2 reasons: they cannot be properly integrated into a modern multigun combat format, and they allready have organizations that provide a suitable venue, IE NSSA among others.  

Our timeline allows the use of those early cartridge weapons such as the Spencer and Henry.  That there is some technogical overlap is both normal and inevitable.

Thus we concentrate on the milspec cartridge weapons of the Victorian era, which previously have had no suitable format, and we require the use of fixed ammunition with self contained priming, as stated in the first paragraph of "Examples"

I have a 1894 Mountain Carbine, Swedish. If I were to put together an outfit, could I sub a Russian Nagant revolver for a Swedish? The mountain carbine was expensive enough, the 7.5 Swede Nagant is more expensive then the rifle.

Yes!  The GAF applauds and encourages such efforts!  Remember as well, when in doubt, a single action will always be acceptable.

Actually, thinking about it, if I do get a costume together, initially shoot as infantry man, & not worry about the revolver at this time.

Just to expand a bit, the Russian 1895 Nagant revolver would work well for any european portrayal outside of Germany or Great Britian.  If they did not have a Nagant, they had something that looked just like one!

Okay, I have a couple of questions.
1. Is a C96 "Bolo" legal due to it's shorter barrel and grip?
2. Are the 5 1/2" "Artillery" versions of the Colt 1873 Legal?
3. Are the 5" version of the Schofield and the 5" versions of the Open top Legal?
Thanks

Yes, yes and yes.  Usage should be appropriate to the period portrayed.  The Bolo is an appropriate substitute for any C96.
