Colt Single Action Army

Many models of the Single Action Army revolver are used throughout the series.

Artillery Model

Charlie Utter (Dayton Callie) carries a Single Action Army Artillery Model with a 5.5" barrel throughout the series. Jack McCall (Garret Dillahunt) uses an Artillery Model during the confrontation with "Wild Bill" Hickok in "Here Was a Man" (S1E04). According to contemporary reports, the real Jack McCall had used a double-action .45 caliber revolver to murder Hickok, but this an error, because there were no .45 caliber double action revolvers that existed in 1876 (the year Hickok was murdered). This error is often made by people who have very little or no knowledge of firearms. The reason this mistake was made is because a person (like a newspaper reporter) who is not familiar with firearms would refer to a single action as a double-action, because one must cock the hammer on a single-action before they can pull the trigger - which is two "actions" - thus this mistake is made. In "Sold Under Sin" (S1E12), several Cavalry soldiers and a man assisting Con Stapleton use Artillery Model SAAs.

During "Reconnoitering the Rim" (S1E03), Hickok is playing a game of poker with Jack McCall (Garret Dillahunt) in Nuttall's No. 10 saloon when he is down to his last eight dollars, putting one of his Colt Navy's on the table to bet it. McCall tells Hickok that his Colt is worth at least $40 more than his raise, putting up $50 more if Hickok will place both guns on the table. This prompts Hickok to quickly draw his other Colt Navy, scaring the other players, until he puts it on the table with his other, winning the bet with a flush of clubs.

Lefaucheux pinfire pocket revolver

In the pilot episode "Deadwood" (S1E01), the so-called "derringer" that Trixie (Paula Malcomson) uses to shoot and kill one of her customers at the Gem Saloon actually appears to be a Lefaucheux pinfire pocket revolver, which Al Swearengen (Ian McShane) takes from her. This was based on a real-life incident in Deadwood in which a prostitute shot one of her clients through the head and he survived for twenty minutes, muttering.

Remington 1866 Derringer

The pistol originally used by Cy to kill Flora's brother Miles was a Remington Derringer, but it is possible that he pocketed the derringer and gave Joanie a S&W Model 1 1/2 to shoot Flora.
