Contents


Pistols

Smith & Wesson Mk II Hand Ejector

Captain Homer Jackson (Adam Rothenberg) uses a Smith & Wesson Mk II Hand Ejector. This revolver is anachronistic as the series is set in 1889, and the Mk II Hand Ejector was not developed until 1915. The only available swing-out cylinder revolvers in 1889 was be only a brand new Smith & Wesson Military & Police and Colt New Army & Navy.

Winchester Model 1866 "Yellow Boy"

A box of what appear to be Winchester Model 1866 "Yellow Boy" rifles is seen being unloaded by the Pinkerton agents in "A Man of My Company" (S01E07). The design of the rear sight and the placement of the barrel band, coupled with the fact that they are never used, suggests that they may actually be non-firing replicas manufactured by Denix.

At least six rifle can be seen in this case. Note the large rear sight and the barrel band placed in the middle of the handguard.

Winchester Model 1894

Frank Goodnight (Edoardo Ballerini) has a Winchester Model 1894 in "A Man of My Company" (S01E07). This rifle is anachronistic with the series taking place in 1889, five years before the rifle was introduced.
