The Lone Ranger is a 2013 fantasy Western that is a new telling of the Lone Ranger legend popularized in radio, film in addition to the well known 1950's television series. Despite the title, this film has an emphasis on the Lone Ranger's sidekick Tonto (portrayed by Johnny Depp). The film was directed by Gore Verbinski (director of the first three Pirates of the Caribbean films) and co-stars Armie Hammer as the title character.

The following weapons were used in the film The Lone Ranger:



Single Action Army 'Artillery'

The primary firearm carried by The Lone Ranger (Armie Hammer) is a nickel-plated 5.5" Single Action Army 'Artillery' model chambered in .45 Long Colt, which is anachronistic of the film's setting (1869).

Single Action Army w/ 5.5" barrel aka "Artillery" model with wooden grips (this is a Cimarron reproduction - and an actual movie gun) Note lack of 4th screw on revolver frame in front of cylinder. This means this is a "black powder frame" model, which is appropriate. The 4th screw on an SAA is a transverse cylinder latch pin, which only Colts made after 1896 had.

Dual SAA's are wielded by Captain Jay Fuller (Barry Pepper).

Colt 1860 (Richards Transitional Conversion)

At one point, John Reid (Armie Hammer) draws what appears to be a Richards Transitional cartridge conversion of a Colt 1860 revolver and holds it on Tonto (Johnny Depp). The lack of a rear sight on the breech ring combined with the Colt 1860 barrel means this is likely a Richards Transitional model (also called the Richards Type II), although it could be an early model Richards-Mason conversion (when they still used the barrels from Colt 1860 percussion revolvers).
