The Salvation is a 2014 Danish co-production Western movie directed by Kristian Levring and starring Mads Mikkelsen as Jon Jensen, a former Danish soldier and veteran of the Second Schleswig War who emigrates to the United States together with his brother Peter (Mikael Persbrandt). Jon's wife and son are brutally killed by a pair of outlaws. Jon exacts revenge on the villains, but one of them turns out to be a brother of local land baron and gang chieftain Colonel Henry Delarue (Jeffrey Dean Morgan). Delarue begins the hunt for Jon, forcing the residents of the town of Black Creek to cooperate.
The following weapons were used in the film The Salvation:
Single Action Army "Cavalry" Model

Delarue's brother Paul (Michael Raymond-James), his accomplice Lester (Sean Cameron Michael), Delarue's chief henchman Corsican (Eric Cantona), bandits Tracker (David James) and "Man With Beard" (Langley Kirkwood).
