The Lone Ranger is a 2013 fantasy Western that is a new telling of the Lone Ranger legend popularized in radio and film in addition to the popular 1950's television series. Despite the title, this film has an emphasis on the Lone Ranger's sidekick Tonto (portrayed by Johnny Depp). The film was directed by Gore Verbinski (who directed Depp in the first three Pirates of the Caribbean films) and co-stars Armie Hammer as the title character.

The following weapons were used in the film The Lone Ranger:



Single Action Army

As with many Westerns, the Single Action Army is the most commonly seen gun in the film. However, as with several other firearms featured in this film, the SAA's appearance is an anachronism due to the film's 1869 setting (the Single Action Army's production began in 1873). Among other characters, The Lone Ranger/John Reid (Armie Hammer) is primarily armed with a pair of nickel-plated 'Artillery' model SAAs. Latham Cole (Tom Wilkinson) wields a Quick Draw model. The Cavalry Model of the Single Action Army is also seen being used by Tonto (Johnny Depp), Butch Cavendish (William Fichtner), and Captain Jay Fuller (Barry Pepper).

Colt 1860 (Richards Transitional Conversion)

At one point, John Reid (Armie Hammer) draws what appears to be a Richards Transitional cartridge conversion of a Colt 1860 revolver and holds it on Tonto (Johnny Depp). The lack of a rear sight on the breech ring combined with the Colt 1860 barrel means this is likely a Richards Transitional model (also called the Richards Type II), although it could be an early model Richards-Mason conversion (when they still used the barrels from Colt 1860 percussion revolvers). The presence of a cartridge-converted revolver is anachronistic for the film's 1869 setting.

Remington 1875

A nickel-plated Remington 1875 makes an anachronistic apperance in the hands of John Reid (Armie Hammer) when he and Tonto are at Rebecca's house. A standard one is also in the hands of one of the Cavandish Gang members during the train heist.

Smith & Wesson New Model No.3

A Smith & Wesson New Model No.3 is seen hidden in the floorboards of a train car and later used by Butch and then by John. Jesús (Joaquín Cosío) also uses a Smith & Wesson New Model No.3 revolver as his primary weapon. Its presence in this film is notably anachronistic by 9 years.

Springfield Model 1873 Cavalry Carbine

The main weapon of the cavalry is the Springfield Model 1873 Cavalry Carbine, which is incorrect as the Model 1873 did not exist during the film's events.

Gatling Gun

Seen mounted on a tripod is a Gatling Gun that is fitted with a 40-round magazine. While the Gatling Gun design did exist before 1869, the particular model featured on-screen is the Colt 1874 Model.
