Return To Lonesome Dove
Return To Lonesome Dove is the 1993 sequel miniseries to 1989's groundbreaking Lonesome Dove. The sequel uses characters created by Larry McMurtry in the original novel, but is a completely new story. In this miniseries, Jon Voight took over the role of Captain Woodrow Call (original miniseries star Tommy Lee Jones was busy filming The Fugitive at the time) and Barbara Hershey took over the role of Clara Allen (replacing Anjelica Huston). Reprising their roles from the original miniseries were Rick Schroder as Newt Dobbs, Timothy Scott as Pea Eye Parker, Barry Tubb as Jasper Fant and Chris Cooper as July Johnson.
The following weapons were used in the miniseries Return To Lonesome Dove:
Colt 1873 SAA
The Colt Single Action Army is given a predominant role throughout the mini-series, but other makes and models do make appearances. Numerous characters use the Colt SAA.
Colt 1877 Thunderer
Gregor Dunnigan (Oliver Reed) carries a nickel plated short barreled Colt 1877 Thunderer without the ejecter rod. It appears that his model has the 3.5" barrel. It also appears to be the slighty larger 1877 "Thunderer" in .41 Colt. It would be an appropriate revolver for a man of his status to carry. The story takes place in 1878, but being a wealthy man Gregor would be able to afford the very latest revolver from Colt.
Though several characters are seen using a Colt 1860 Cartridge Conversion the model receives prominent use by the outlaw Jack Jackson (Dennis Haysbert). The revolver is very close to a Richards Conversion, but with a few differences. The water table on an 1860 Army is recessed for the larger .44 caliber cylinder while a .36 caliber Navy is flat. Possibly it is a modern reproduction.
Colt 1860 Army
Remington 1858 New Army
It appears that Captain Gideon Walker (William Petersen) carries a Remington 1858 New Army. It is unknown if it is a cartridge conversion or a percussion model. The model is also used by one of Dunnigan's cowboys.
The Colt Walker appears in the hands of extras throughout the mini-series. Typically there are just brief glimpses of the old Colt .44 percussion revolver.
Smith & Wesson No.3 Russian Model
During an ambush Gideon Walker (William Petersen) takes a Smith & Wesson No.3 Russian Model from a dead vaquero and uses it along with his Remington revolver. It appears later being used by Captain Call (Jon Voight).
Double Barreled "coach" Shotgun
Double Barreled Shotgun
A utilitarian 12 Gauge Double Barreled Shotgunis carried briefly by Newt (Rick Schroder) when he is paroled to Gregor Dunnigan (Oliver Reed), who hands him the shotgun because a surly lynch mob is following them.
