Dalton runs the gunsmith store in Valentine, New Hanover.

Events of Red Dead Redemption 2

In the mission "The Sheep and the Goats", Arthur Morgan visits his store to obtain a sniper rifle. However, as he does not have the correct amount of money to buy it, he takes it without paying.

Eight years later, in 1907, Dalton is still seen running his store.

Dalton has a combed, shiny grey head of hair. He appears to be somewhat old, as he is seen to have wrinkles over his face. He wears a white shirt with the top buttons undone. Over this, he wears an undone black waistcoat.


Dalton has not changed much since 1899. He now appears slightly older, as he is seen to have more wrinkles and he now wears spectacles.



  • John Marston reportedly had a fallout with R.L. Dalton at some point in Chapter 2.
  • This and the gunsmith store in Saint Denis are the only two places in Redemption 2 where the player can purchase the Semi-Automatic Pistol.
