Old Henry is a 2021 Western film written and directed by Potsy Ponciroli. It stars Tim Blake Nelson as the titular character, a widowed farmer in 1906 Oklahoma, with Scott Haze, Trace Adkins, and Stephen Dorff in supporting roles. One day, Henry gives shelter to an injured man with a satchel of cash. He claims to be the sheriff, wounded and pursued by a gang. But when a group of strangers comes for this person, they claim themselves to be the lawmen. Henry has to decide who to trust, but his decision leads to the disclosure of his own dark past.
The following weapons were used in the film Old Henry:
Single Action Army "Civilian" Model
Single Action Army "Civilian" Model revolvers are used by Henry MacCarty (Tim Blake Nelson), his son Wyatt (Gavin Lewis), Curry (Scott Haze), and Branigan (Brad Carter). Curry's revolver with the matte grey finish, brass backstrap and trigger guard, and plain wooden grips is an Uberti Cattleman Hombre New Model replica (the Old Model has a safety screw in the front section of the frame that is absent on Curry's revolver). Henry's revolver that he owns from his outlaw days also has plain wooden grips and brass parts but a different finish. It is probably another Uberti model, possibly the Cattleman Charcoal Blue.

Single Action Army "Artillery" Model
One of Ketchum's hired guns is armed with a Single Action Army "Artillery" Model revolver. Judging by the matte grey finish and brass backstrap and trigger guard, this revolver is probably another Uberti replica.

Single Action Army "Artillery" Model Non-Firing Replica
Non-firing replicas of SAA "Artillery" revolver, likely Denix production, are also seen in the hands of Ketchum's hired guns.
For reference: Denix "Cal.45 Peacemaker 5 1/2", USA 1873" (model 1106/G) replica of Single Action Army "Artillery" Model. Note the grey surface and thick wooden grips with large screw. Screen guns are similar but have different finish.
A revolver is seen in the dead hand of a hired gun whom Henry killed with an axe. Such a glossy black surface is more common for non-firing replicas.

The shape of the firing pin reveals this gun to be a non-firing replica.
Colt New Service
Dugan (Richard Speight, Jr.) is armed with a Colt New Service revolver with rich blue finish and white, possibly ivory, grips.

Colt Official Police
One of Sam Ketchum's (Stephen Dorff) guns is a Colt Official Police revolver. The film is set in 1906, a little early even for the Colt Army Special, the direct predecessor of the Colt OP.

Colt 1851 Navy
Two of Ketchum's hired guns are armed with Colt 1851 Navy revolvers, heavily archaic for 1906. Only one of these revolvers is seen firing, and the muzzle flame is obviously a CGI effect. This particular revolver has the brass frame that can be seen on a number of replicas, both firing (Pietta) and non-firing (Denix).

Smith & Wesson Victory Model
Stilwell (Max Arciniega) carries two Smith & Wesson revolver, one of those is an anachronistic Smith & Wesson Victory Model with 4" barrel.

Smith & Wesson Military & Police 2nd Model
Stilwell's second revolver is a Smith & Wesson Military & Police. Judging by the combination of the early grip and the supported ejector rod, the revolver is the 2nd Model of 1902.
Smith & Wesson Model of 1899 M&P (1899-1902) - .38 Special. The 2nd Model of 1902 has a supported ejector rod but retains the same grip.

Remington 1875 Short Barrel
A short-barreled version of the Remington 1875 is used by Ketchum (Stephen Dorff). It is likely a Uberti/Cimarron 1875 "Outlaw" or "Frontier" with 5.5" barrel.
Cimarron 1875 "Outlaw" with 5 1/2" barrel - .44 WCF
A good view of Ketchum's revolver. Judging by the shape of the bottom blade aka "sail", this is a short-barreled "Outlaw" rather than a "Frontier".

Remington 1858 New Army
Another archaic handgun is the Remington 1858 New Army, used by one more hired gun. It may be a cartridge conversion model, although it cannot be said for sure.

Winchester Model 1894 Carbine
Henry MacCarty (Tim Blake Nelson) owns a Winchester Model 1894 carbine which he retrieves and uses during the final shootout. The exact screen gun is an Angle Eject Carbine version that was introduced only in 1982. It is identified by the configuration of the receiver top.

Winchester Model 1892 Carbine (Denix)
A Denix replica of the Winchester Model 1892 Carbine, identified by the dull grey receiver, is seen in the field camp of the gang. Possibly the same gun is later seen in Ketchum's saddle holster.

Single Barreled Shotgun
Dugan's (Richard Speight, Jr.) long gun is a Single Barreled Shotgun with exposed hammer. An Iver Johnson "Champion" seems to be a good guess.

Double Barreled Shotgun
Henry MacCarty (Tim Blake Nelson) holds a Double Barreled Shotgun in several scenes. In the final scene, the gun is used by Wyatt (Gavin Lewis). In 1906, a shotgun with exposed hammers would be a more suitable choice for a simple farmer.
For reference: 1960s Era Commercial Stevens hammerless side by side shotgun - 12 gauge
