Pistols

Colt Single Action Army "Artillery"

In Season 5's finale "Time's Arrow, Part I" (S5E26), an archaeologist shows Captain Picard and Commander Data a 19th-century revolver in a cave beneath San Francisco. Data describes the weapon as a ".45-caliber double action Cavalry pistol, invented by Colt Firearms in 1873." The description appears to be in error as the revolver seen is an "Artillery" model of the Colt Single Action Army, and Colt Firearms did not make a double-action pistol in 1873. In the second part of that episode, Season 6's premiere "Time's Arrow, Part II" (S6E01), the weapon is held by Samuel Clemens (Jerry Hardin) when he confronts the Enterprise crew in the cave, revealing how it came to be there.

In Season 6's "A Fistful of Datas" (S6E08), Counselor Deanna Troi (Marina Sirtis), Commander Data (Brent Spiner), and holographic outlaw Eli Hollander (John Pyper-Ferguson) all carry the "Artillery" model of the Colt Single Action Army.
