Here's all I could come up with from a website called "Movie Mistakes."


http://www.moviemistakes.com/main7097


"Jack Slade mistakes
Factual error: After they bury Jack's father, the stage driver hands Jack what he refers to as a "Navy" Colt. However, in 1841, the only colt handguns were a handful of Paterson revolvers, usually carried by Texas Rangers, and in fact, the revolver handed to the boy was a cartridge weapon.
Factual error: As a boy in 1841, Jack and his father take passage on an Overland Stage Company coach. However, this company wasn't in existence until the late 1850's."

From the poor movie poster it could be a colt navy or colt paterson. Most likely from one of the actual photos none of which are good enough to really see it was a modern revolver with parts welded on to look like a colt navy.

According to the story the father gave the son(slade) a colt navy .36 caliber revolver. What the movie people actually used was a prop made to loosly resemble one.

From the rather poor poster illustrations, my guess would be that the gun is a Colt Single Action Army, modified to look like a Remington cap-and-ball revolver.

Years ago antique dealer Robert Abels had some studio prop guns that had been modified. The most numerous were Colt New Service or S&W Hand Ejector models fitted with fancy grips and fake ejector rod housings.

es simplemente un revolver falso. Parece que ser un Colt Navy o Colt Peacemaker con piezas adicionales que han sido soldadas a la arma....

lo siento si mi gramatica no es correcto...
