Army of Darkness is the 1992 sequel to The Evil Dead and Evil Dead II. The film picks up from the end of Evil Dead II, as Ash (again portrayed by Bruce Campbell) finds himself transported to the Middle Ages and searches for a way to return to his own time. Sam Raimi returned as director and this was the first of the series distributed by a major film studio (Universal Pictures) and the decision was made to not use the title Evil Dead III, but rather to have the film stand on its own. Before its original North American theatrical release, the decision was made to change the film's original filmed ending with the one that takes place in the S-Mart (the original ending can be seen in the "Director's Cut" of the film). After two decades of rumors of continuing the franchise, a remake produced by both Raimi and Campbell was released in 2013.

The following weapons were used in the film Army of Darkness:

Contents


Shotguns

Stoeger Coach Gun

Ash (Bruce Campbell) wields what appears to be a 12 gauge Stoeger Coach Gun that he refers to as his "Boomstick". He identifies it as a Remington, but it is not.

Ash displays his gun to a group of "primitive screwheads" in his famous "This is my Boomstick" scene. He fights the "She-Bitch" (Patricia Tallman) soon afterward, has it fired at him by miniature doppelgangers, shoots Evil Ash in the face with it, and uses it once during the final battle. Near the end of the film Ash is seen with the boomstick holstered when he rides off on his horse. Despite only holding two shells, Ash fires this weapon a total of 3 times without reloading during the "This is my Boomstick" scene. He also fires it 4 times without reloading during the "She-Bitch" fight scene. (Every time he fires both shells the shot changes to something else and some soft clicking is heard. Apparently he's a very fast reloader, especially for a guy with only one hand.)

The Stoeger IGA 20" Coach side by side Shotgun - 12 gauge. Despite being explicitly named as a "Remington" in the movie, the gun used in the movie is NOT a Remington side by side.
Ash blows smoke off the barrels after shooting Lord Arthur's (Marcus Gilbert) sword in half.
"Alright you primitive screwheads, listen up. You see this? This....is my BOOMSTICK!! It's a 12-gauge double barreled Remington. S-Marts top of the line. You can find this in the sporting goods department."
"That's right this sweet baby was made in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Retails for about $109.95. It's got a walnut stock, cobalt blue steel, and a hair trigger. That's right, shop smart, shop S-Mart."
"YOU GOT THAT??"
"Now I swear.....The next one of you primates....even touches me...."
"HYAAAA!!" Ash takes aim at the deadite that crawled out of the pit.
Ash spins his boomstick before holstering it. This shotgun has shorter barrels, they must have used more than one while filming.
"Yo, She-Bitch. Let's go." Ash reloads his shotgun to face the She-Bitch.

Ash shoves the business end of his Boomstick into Evil Ash's face.
"Good......bad....I'm the guy with the gun." Ash shoulders his boomstick after blasting Evil Ash in the face.

Winchester Model 1300

A Winchester Model 1300 shotgun is briefly seen on a gun case inside the Sporting Goods Department of S-Mart.

Rifles

Winchester Model 1892

In the theatrical version of the film's ending, Ash is seen wielding a Winchester Model 1892 Saddle Ring Carbine with a "Trapper" loop handle when a Deadite appears and begins tearing up the S-Mart in the present day. Despite the fact that most lever-actions hold nine to 13 rounds, Ash fires 37 shots in quick succession without reloading. A possible explanation to this is since he has a mechanical hand he can load and fire at the same time, and rather quickly.

Winchester 1892 Saddle Ring Carbine with large lever loop - .32WCF/.38-40/.44-40/.25-20.

"Lady I'm afraid I'm going to have to ask you to leave the store."
"Name's Ash. Housewares."

Parker-Hale M-85

Inside the Sporting Goods Department in a gun case along with Shotguns and lever action rifles, a bolt action rifle is seen. It appears to be a Parker-Hale M-85 sniper rifle with a straight bolt.

Handguns

Single Action Army

In S-Mart's gun section. Multiple long arms and revolvers can be seen. The only revolver that is seen clearly appears to be a Single Action Army or more likely a reproduction version.
