Red Dead Wiki
For the Red Dead Redemption variant, see Repeater Carbine.

The Carbine Repeater is a weapon featured in Red Dead Redemption 2 and Red Dead Online.


A reliable and popular repeating rifle, the Buck Carbine provides medium damage and a decent firing rate, with quick reload speeds thanks to the tube-loaded magazine in the weapon's stock. A good, balanced choice for hunting and medium-range combat, this gun has an ammo capacity of seven rounds, and can use Regular, High Velocity, Split Point, Express and Explosive repeater ammo.[1]


The Buck Carbine Repeater provides versatility over being excellent in any one role. It can be fitted with a scope for marksman use, or used with sights, in close to medium range. Its ammunition capacity is far below that of the Lancaster Repeater, and even more below the capacity of the Litchfield Repeater. It makes up for this with a faster reload, due to the tube magazine in the stock, thus allowing a reload of all 7 rounds at once. It also has better damage than the Lancaster and better accuracy than both other repeaters. With its quick reload speed and its very well balanced stats, the Carbine Repeater can function as an effective gun in many situations.


This rifle is available from all gunsmiths. It is also provided for free during "Old Friends". It can also be picked up from slain characters in the world.

In Red Dead Online, the Carbine Repeater is given to the protagonist at the start of the game.

  • The Buck Carbine Repeater is based on the Spencer Model 1860 Carbine.
  • This is the most common longarm to be used by various NPCs. In real life, however, it was considered fairly obsolete compared to newer models by the time of Red Dead Redemption 2.
  • It also appears to be the standard longarm for the Van der Linde gang, with those on camp guard duty always using this weapon. Sadie Adler has a custom version in blackened steel with a yellowish wrap around the stock.
  • Given that the weapon is given to the player from the start, it is impossible to “View” the weapon from Gunsmith catalogue and hear their dialogues.
  • In Red Dead Online, Bonnie MacFarlane can be seen holding this weapon as she is sitting down and wiping it with Gun Oil.
