Evans Repeating Rifle

The 28 shot Evans Repeating Rifle is used by Joe Gill (Wilford Brimley). When asked why he doesn't get rid of it he states "Well, it holds twenty-eight bullets...and I ain't a very good shot...I'm going to town." In the middle of the gunbattle, the rifle runs out of rounds, and Gill switches to a Winchester 1873 that is brought out to him by the owner of the general store (Ken Pogue). The version that Gill uses is the carbine with the twenty-two inch barrel.

Sharps Model 1874

In the beginning of the film, Covington steals a scoped Sharps Model 1874 from the captain who murdered Charles Rodney. Covington uses it to kill a Bison, and Joe Gill uses it at the beginning of the end gunbattle to shoot Dorn. Gill isn't a very good shot with the Sharps either, and hits Dorn's rifle instead.
