Godless is a 2017 Netflix original miniseries Western that was created by Scott Frank, the screenwriter of such films as Get Shorty (1995) and 2017's Logan and the writer/director of A Walk Among the Tombstones. Set in the New Mexico territory in the 1880s, Godless tells the story of a ruthless outlaw who will stop at nothing to find and kill a member of his gang who betrayed and injured him during a heist, which leads him to a town populated almost entirely by women in the wake of a mining disaster. The miniseries stars Jack O'Connell, Michelle Dockery, and Jeff Daniels. This miniseries also is notable for its very accurate depiction and dialogue regarding firearms of the Old West, as well as including many period firearms besides the Colt Single Action Army. All 7 episodes were released on Netflix on November 22, 2017.
The following weapons were used in the miniseries Godless (2017):
Single Action Army
As with most westerns, the Colt Single Action Army revolver appears in the hands of many characters throughout the series. Whitney Winn (Thomas Brodie-Sangster) notably carries two nickel Artillery models with ivory handles, keeping them in two gun belts worn over one another, and drawing and spinning them quite often. Mary Agnes McNue (Merritt Wever) also carries an Artillery model Colt, hers being blued.
Colt 1849 Pocket
A Colt 1849 Pocket is seen wielded in" Shot the Head off a Snake" (S1E05) during a flashback. The revolver also is seen in "Homecoming" (S1E07).
Colt 1871-72 Open Top
In "Shot the Head off a Snake" (S1E05), a flashback shows Roy being given a Colt 1871-72 Open Top Revolver by Frank to use. Roy Goode (Jack O'Connell) later uses this revolver in "Homecoming" (S1E07).
What appears to be a British Bulldog revolver is seen used in "Homecoming" (S1E07).
Remington Model 1875
Merwin and Hulbert revolver
A Merwin and Hulbert revolver also is used in "Homecoming" (S1E07).
Smith & Wesson New Model No.3
What appears to be a Smith & Wesson New Model No.3 is used in "Homecoming" (S1E07).
Smith & Wesson "Wells Fargo" Schofield
What appears to be the shortened Smith & Wesson "Wells Fargo" Schofield is used in "Homecoming" (S1E07).
Alice Fletcher (Michelle Dockery) carries an iron-framed Henry 1860 throughout the series, wielding it many times at visitors approaching her ranch, and using it to great effect in the final shootout. It is also seen being held by her son Truckee (Samuel Marty). It is notable that both Alice and Truckee demonstrate the proper technique when holding the Henry rifle: gripping it by the front of the receiver, not the magazine tube. This is done since the gun has no handguard and magazine tube is open along the bottom, and the spring can pinch the shooter's fingers when firing multiple rounds. Alice also often wears a heavy glove on her left hand to prevent burning her hand on the barrel when firing.
Winchester Model 1873
Winchester Model 1876
Mary Agnes McNue (Merritt Wever) carries a Winchester Model 1876 rifle throughout the series. Unlike the widely renowned 1873 Model, the Winchester '76 was built with a much larger receiver for accommodating larger, more powerful ammunition. It's chambered in .50-95 Sharps, which Mary Agnes specifically mentions when buying ammunition, prompting the store owner to ask if she's hunting buffalo (A resonable and accurate question, being that the .50-95 Sharps cartridge was developed as a buffalo round, specifically for single-shot Sharps rifles). She uses it to great effect in "Homecoming" (S1E07) during the final gun battle.
12 Gauge Double-barreled Side-by-Side Shotgun
Elias Hobbs (Erik LaRay Harvey) is armed with a 12 Gauge Double Barreled Shotgun in "Wisdom of the Horse" (S1E03). The shotgun is used during a confrontation with Marshal John Cook (Sam Waterston) in the saloon later in the episode.
