Charley Ford (Sam Rockwell) also carries a 4.75" barrel "Quick-Draw" model, which Bob uses during the Wood Hite shootout. Wood Hite (Jeremy Renner) carries an SAA during his shootout with Dick.
Dick Liddil (Paul Schneider) carries a Colt 1851 Navy, most notably seen during his shootout with Wood Hite and during his arrest. It looks like it might have a brass frame, so could be a Confederate copy of the Colt.
