Revolvers

Colt Single Action Army

Butch Cassidy (Paul Newman) and the Sundance Kid (Robert Redford) each carry a Colt Single Action Army. The Bolivian bandits, including one played by Powers Boothe and police also carry SAAs.

Movie prop Colt Police Positive

When confronting the Bolivian bandits, Butch's Single Action Army appears to have been replaced in some shots with a double-action, modern Colt Police Positive revolver modified to resemble the SAA. This kind of prop was frequently used in Westerns (see the Police Positive below), when a Single Action Army was required to be discharged with the speed required by the script.
