Django Unchained (2012)

Django Unchained is a 2012 "Southern" (as the film has elements of the Western, but takes place primarily in the southern United States of 1858) that was written and directed by Quentin Tarantino. The film stars Jamie Foxx as Django Freeman, a slave who is liberated by a bounty hunter named Dr. King Shultz (Christoph Waltz) in order to track down and eliminate the notorious Bittle Brothers of whom Shultz has no knowledge of appearance. If the brothers are brought to justice, Shultz promises to aid Django in his quest to find the man who has enslaved his wife and rescue her from his clutches. The cast includes Leonardo DiCaprio, Don Johnson, Walton Goggins, and Samuel L. Jackson. The film's name is a homage to the 1966 Italian Western Django that starred Franco Nero (who also has a role in this film). According to IMDb.com, the armorers for the film are Tony Didio, Jr. and gunsmith Larry Zanoff.

Pistols

Cobra "Big Bore" Derringer

Dr. King Schultz (Christoph Waltz) and Django (Jamie Foxx) use Cobra "Big Bore" Derringers as their secondary weapons. They are attached to drawer slides that allow for quick pistol drawing. They are both polished steel with pearl grips which means they are duplicates or in fact the same pistol. Since the film takes place in 1858, the use of a Derringer would be anachronistic (as they did not become popular until well after the Civil War). The Cobra "Big Bore" Derringer seen in the film is a modern version of the Remington derringer.

Remington 1858 New Army

Dr. King Schultz (Christoph Waltz) carries what appears to be a Remington 1858 New Army. In the shootout at Candyland, Django (Jamie Foxx) dual-wields revolvers, one of which is a Remington 1858 New Army. Django also is seen with Remington fitted with a brass frame.

Dr. King Schultz (Christoph Waltz) and a slave then use the shotgun. Sheriff Bill Sharp (Don Stroud) also carries the shotgun when confronting Schultz.

Rifles

Sharps 1874 Buffalo

Henry 1860

A steel framed Henry 1860 rifle can be seen being used by henchmen, Django (Jamie Foxx) and Dr. King Schultz (Christoph Waltz). This weapon is anachronistic due to the movie taking place in 1858, although they could be intended to be stand-ins for the Volcanic Repeater rifles which were the immediate predecessor to the Henry rifle.
