A Colt revolver is seen held by Ed Miller ([[Dennis Quaid]]) during the bank robbery. It is also seen used by Bob Younger (Robert Carradine). This double-action, modern revolver (it looks like a Colt 1917) has been modified to look like a Colt [[Single Action Army]], installing a fake extractor rod housing on the right side of the barrel. This kind of props were frequently used in the 50's Western movies (see the Police Positive below), when an actor wasn't able to use a [[Single Action Army]] with the speed required by the script. It is somewhat surprising to find one in this movie, which uses such a variety of antique handguns. Another possibility is that it was a representation of a [[Colt 1878 Double Action]] Revolver.

The Long Riders (1980)

The Long Riders is a 1980 Western film that dramatizes the exploits of the James-Younger Gang. Directed by Walter Hill, the film is notable for the casting of 4 families of actors including the Carradines (David Carradine, Keith Carradine, and Robert Carradine), the Quaids (Randy Quaid and Dennis Quaid), the Keaches (James Keach and Stacy Keach), and the Guests (Nicholas Guest and Christopher Guest). Also of interest is the amount of period weapons seen in the film besides the typical Colt Single Action Army.


The following weapons were used in the film The Long Riders:

Contents


[edit] Handguns

[edit] Merwin and Hulbert revolver

Clell Miller (Randy Quaid) carries a Merwin and Hulbert revolver as his main handgun. This revolver was not available to the public until 1876, the same year that Clell Miller helped robb the bank in Minnesota as depicted in the movie.

Clell pulls his revolver on a frightened bank customer (Allan Graf) during the climatic robbery.

[edit] Remington 1875

Cole Younger (David Carradine) is seen with a Remington 1875.

Cole Younger (David Carradine) aims his Remington 1875 at Jesse James (James Keach) and Frank James (Stacy Keach).
A bank customer takes aim at Jesse in the first robbery with his own Remington 1875.

[edit] Sharps Model 1C Pepperbox

Four-barreled Sharps Model 1C Pepperbox is also seen in the film held by Bella Starr (Pamela Reed).

Sharps Model 1C Pepperbox - .22 caliber

[edit] Smith and Wesson Schofield

Frank James (Stacy Keach) is seen with a Smith & Wesson Schofield.

[edit] Harrington & Richardson Premier

A top-break, .38 Harrington & Richardson Premier revolver is the weapon of Vernon Biggs (Chris Mulkey). Frank is seen with one as well.

[edit] Colt Walker

Jim Younger (Keith Carradine) is seen with what appears to be a .44 caliber Colt Walker revolver when they rob the coach. Despite the presence of a loading lever latch, this is a Walker and not a Dragoon or '51 Navy. (See Discussion page for detailed argument.)

Colt Walker - .44 caliber.
Jim Younger (Keith Carradine) aims his Colt Walker at Vernon when they rob the coach.

[edit] Movie prop Colt Police Positive

A Colt revolver is seen held by Ed Miller (Dennis Quaid) during the bank robbery. It is also seen used by Bob Younger (Robert Carradine). This double-action, modern revolver (it looks like a Colt 1917) has been modified to look like a Colt Single Action Army, installing a fake extractor rod housing on the right side of the barrel. This kind of props were frequently used in the 50's Western movies (see the Police Positive below), when an actor wasn't able to use a Single Action Army with the speed required by the script. It is somewhat surprising to find one in this movie, which uses such a variety of antique handguns. Another possibility is that it was a representation of a Colt 1878 Double Action Revolver.
