The RDO Gun Show!

Recommended Posts

Caffeination

Seeing that we have a thread for our characters, it only makes sense that one for exhibiting their firearms should exist as well.

 

Here's what you can do to contribute:-

 

  • Pictures of Firearms: Pretty straight forward! Be kind enough to share what you've applied, it'll incentivize readers to give their weapons a personal touch and share them here as well.
  • Discussion/Critique: A weapon thread will obviously welcome discussions about weapons. Say what you think about certain guns, what you like and dislike about them, that kind of thing.
  • Ideas: You can also talk about wishlist weapons and customization options here!

 

I'll start with my Cattleman. It was plain for the longest time, until I've recently made it all nickel, dressed it in ivory grips, and applied baroque-style nickel engravings on it. Looks almost as luxurious as the LeMat now, doesn't it?

(Dual wielded **like you needed to ask**) My primary go-to. Heck, if I could snag three star pelts with these I'd never use another firearm. Done up with black metal & gold engravings & all the upgrades. I bought all the grips, & cycle through them as I please. atm I'm using ebony grips. On Xbox one ( late for the new cards) I found it to be beastly for headshots even before the Gunslinger's Choice card. GC doesn't seem to remove the bloom the same as it does on the double action revolvers or mausers. However the slight damage boost is still welcome, though. Almost always used with express rounds. sometimes I pack some explosive express "just in case", but for the most part, things are calmer, & I'm only attacked w/o provocation every couple weeks or so, not hours.  Can not, absolutely CAN NOT downplay how often the scattershot rounds have saved my bacon in & out of Showdowns.;)   I'll post the pics of my other tools as soon as I remember to grab some photos at the gunsmith.

Do you have Gunslinger’s Choice? I can only recommend these guns if you have that card.

 

And why are you interested in these guns? Reload speed and fire-rate? Or ammo count?

I'm just not big into the designs of any of the current pistols, which is funny considering the high powered pistol was my most used handgun in RDR.

 

Currently all of my longarms are rocking a copper frame and black or blued steel barrel with that new grey birch varnish? My revolvers are all a bit different but usually both matching (as I always used them as pairs). I'll post up a pic or two when I get a chance.

They're all perfect for killing, plain and simple.

I don't really spend much time or currency customizing my weapons. I like to keep them fairly simple. I only added engravings to my Lancaster Repeater because I bought them by accident and figured I might as well keep them, lol.

Alright then. Here's what I've done with my Semi-Automatic Pistol and Mauser.

I customized the Semi-Automatic Pistol with a gold trigger and bolt, a Wild Cherry standard grip, and golden baroque engravings. I've done this since the firearm it's based on had only 5000 pieces produced, so I view it as an exquisite collector gun.

 

My Mauser, however, stays plain since I like it that way. As a side note, the standard manufacturer's engraving on the frame goes away if you try to apply custom engravings, so all I did was change the varnish to Wild Cherry.

I wish they would release that M1899 Pistol for consoles, and not make it a PC exclusive, which is super lame.

I have dual Cattleman revolvers all decked out in black, with a Puma on the grip.

None at all? Then you put yourself at a disadvantage. No harm in having a few passive ones equipped that you can forget about but are helping.

There's no reason not to. Even if you don't like 'em, their benefits are pretty great. Pretty cool bonuses for relatively little money, given how easy it is to get cash in this game. It'd be foolish to turn it down.

Springfield Rifle.

 

Undecided if I prefer this over my Bolt Action, but it kinda feels like it packs more 'Umph'

I got a little work done to my Schofield - blued steel all over with the exception of the trigger which I kept in the original iron finish.

Funny how just changing the color of a weapon makes me want to use it more... this gun has earned me the 'kills as a coach passenger' award (mostly while on Love and Honor). Pew pew!

I'm petty. I gave my knife a mesquite grip because it looked nice. Now all my guns have to have mesquite furniture to match.

I know that feeling!

 

With the exception of my Cattleman and LeMat, I gave all my handguns a Wild Cherry grip and black finish to fit what I gave my knife. It feels nice having a uniform color-code for the weaponry on your gunbelt.

Bought the pump action shotgun recently. Added all attachments, used slug ammo for more accuracy and this was my first try with it.

 

 

Not impressed...

Mesquite is my favorite varnish, all of my weapons have it except for a LeMat with a pearl grip and my all black shotgun

I know how you feel, but that's the thing with shotguns in this game. Slugs are for medium range, while shells are for short range. You're bound to waste shots with either if you use them the other way around.

Ah, I didn't know that. I thought it was odd because I got some medium range kills from my horse after this. I just saw the slugs had more accuracy and assumed they were better. 

 

Now we have gun lockers I've set myself a target of owning every gun in the game but upgrading and using them for a while, not just buying and putting them in the locker. Bought the double barrel shotgun today so I'll try swapping the ammo depending on range and see if it helps.

So I have tried the double barrel with the shells instead of slugs. Wow, what a difference! 3 less shots before reloading but when I'm not missing a shot I can live with that lol.

Glad you had fun demolishing with the double-barrel. It’s a great weapon, yet sadly under-appreciated and under-estimated since everyone goes for the Semi-Auto instead.
