Ride with the Devil (1999)

Ride with the Devil is a 1999 American Civil War drama directed by Ang Lee and stars Tobey Maguire, Skeet Ulrich, Jewel, Jeffrey Wright, Simon Baker, Jonathan Rhys Meyers, and James Caviezel. The film was based on the novel Woe to Live On and depicts the border wars between the Kansas Jayhawks and Missouri Bushwhackers during the conflict.

The following weapons were used in the film Ride with the Devil:

Remington Model 1858 New Army (Brass Frame)

The brass-framed Remington Model 1858 is used by several Confederates including Jake Roedel (Tobey Maguire). These brass-frame "Remingtons" are inaccurate reproductions by Pietta of Italy that did not exist in the 19th Century, and are therefore anachronistic. It is possible, however, that they are being used as stand-ins for the Spiller & Burr, which was a Confederate copy of the Whitney revolver (and is also often mistaken for a Confederate copy of the Remington by novices) but that ideal is unlikely, as Pietta also makes a reproduction of the Spiller & Burr, which makes using these Remingtons as stand-ins pointless.
