Talk:Outlaw Josey Wales, The
Aside from assistance with the rifles, I'm done! Jcordell and Nyles seem like knowledgable users in these guns. But that doesn't mean anyone else is excluded... - Gunmaster45
- Sorted it out as best I could, don't guarantee 100% accuracy, but at least 90. - Nyles
Good work. Jcordell
- God I hate the Propstore of London. They deactivated the Colt Walkers Eastwood used in the film. Those guns are a part of film history! Every time I see the famous picture of Josey Wales now, I shutter in knowning his famous guns were neutered. Bastards. - Gunmaster45
Got a question for Gunmaster45: What source information do you have for the 1865 Colt Gatling .44 RF? I'm trying to run down information on a Peruvian Gatling used in the War of the Pacific (1879-1882) that was supposed to be .44-caliber.
Changed the caption on the sixth Springfield Trapdoor picture. The caption said it was Lone Watie, but the man pictured is the bearded Mexican from the saloon. Lone Watie is clean shaven.
The Colt that Wales uses to shoot at a comanchero and also clicks empty trying to shoot Terrell is a 1861 Navy,not a '60 Army. note the straight,no rebated cylinder and the 7.5 inch barrel rather than the Army's 8-incher which sticks out past the loading lever latch.Also, Trapdoors have long been used as percussion muskets in film, simply for ease of reloading;they are faster than both a Sharps and Remington Rolling Block. Note the real Springfield and Enfield rifle-muskets are ever fired on screen. Also as stated, the road agent spin is quite easy and the 1860 Army with its longer butt and lighter barrel is ideal for this and doing it in reverse is an easy way to holster the gun,especially in a crossdraw butt forward holster holster. As to Richards-Mason conversions, the '51 Navy is the only one I can actually ID as an R-M and its loading lever hole in the frame is still;usually the hole was filled in. i wish we knew why these conversions crept into the movie. Still one of my favorites,though.--Tecolote (talk) 22:39, 27 February 2015 (EST)
