The following guns were used in the film The Bear, known in French as L'ours:

Martini-Henry Mk IV

Bill (Jack Wallace) carries a Martini-Henry Mk IV as his rifle in the film. The rounds on his belt don't look at all like the normal rounds loaded into this gun, since the rounds used have a crimpled bottle neck, while the rounds on his belt are long and flat.
