The Starr Army revolver series has been used by the following actors in the following films:



The Starr revolver was first introduced in 1858 as a sidearm for the U.S. Army, being called the "Starr 1858 Army". This revolver was a six shot, black powder percussion revolver with a unique feature; a double action or "self-cocking" trigger mechanism. Unfortunately the mechanism was weak and the gun lost favor with soldiers after having their triggers break in combat all too often. To fix this, the gun was given a more simple single action system and reproduced in 1863 as the "Starr 1863 Army" revolver. This model was far more favorable with troops, though other revolvers like the Colt 1860 Army and Remington 1858 New Army were more popular.
