Contents



Single Action Army

As with most westerns, near everyone in the film carries a Single Action Army revolver. Sheriff Bart (Cleavon Little) carries a 5 1/2" Artillery with a nickel finish and pearl grips, while Jim (Gene Wilder) carries a pair of nickel plated 7 1/2" Cavalry revolvers.

Winchester 1892 Saddle Ring Carbine

Despite being anachronistic (although it doesn't really matter in this film, since at one point it jumps from 1874 to 1974), some of the townspeople are seen loading up Winchester 1892 Saddle Ring Carbines when Bart (Cleavon Little) introduces himself as the new Sheriff. Several are also seen in the gun rack at the Sheriff's Department.

Springfield 1903 Prop Gun

The dancers during Lili Von Schtupp's (Madeline Kahn) performance fire prop firing Springfield 1903 rifles into the air. Later on, German WWII soldiers are also seen with them, which is factually incorrect enough to not require comment.

The following guns were used in the failed TV show spin-off of the film:

Single Action Army

Sheriff Bart (Louis Gossett Jr.) tries out a gun salesman's 4 3/4" Quickdraw Single Action Army with a nickel finish and pearl grips throughout the episode. At the end, Howard Johnson claims he bought the gun but is trick by Bart into trading it for his piece of junk "pig gun". Jim carries two blued 5 1/2" Artillery Single Action Armies as well. The bad guy in the episode also carries a 7 1/2" Cavalry version.
