Trivia

While in most live action medias, all gunshots of muzzleloader firearms are real firing (blanks of course) or all pyrotechnic produced, in this TV series, we can see rather rare case, when some gunshots are real, while some are just pyrothechnic effects. The two main differs in the lack of any flash from the blasting aperture and moving of firing mechanism of the pyrothechnic produced flash, while the real gunshots of muzzloaders have it.
