The Webley is definitely not a Webley. --Funkychinaman (talk) 08:29, 7 January 2017 (EST)

The general shape resembles Smith & Wesson 44 Hand Ejector Series but it's vague. Unidentified lever action rifle seems to be a Winchester Model 1892 (Winchester Model 1894 is also possible but seems less likely). Greg-Z (talk) 08:52, 7 January 2017 (EST)

After more examination I think that S&W Hand Ejector is too vague guess as it has similar barrel and front sight but I'm not sure if it has shrouded ejector rod. The size also is not so large as .44 revolver must have. So I'm possibly wrong in this guess. Maybe it's some other S&W or Colt model. Greg-Z (talk) 13:05, 7 January 2017 (EST)
It does have more a S&W aesthetic to me, and I do think it's big enough for a .44. That being said, it might be a .44 Hand-Ejector 'Second Model', as those don't have shrouded rods, just simple sockets akin to other S&Ws - As such they're often confused with the smaller M&P in period stuff. Also looks like it might have the squared-off 'target' front sight rather than the rounded one, further suggesting a Second Model .44. It would've been a fairly new gun at the time of this film but still certainly available, seems a good bet. As for the lever-action, it could be either one, without a shot of the right side receiver showing the loading gate we can't be certain either way. Finally the 'Model 10' should be listed as 'Military & Police' as that's what it was called then. StanTheMan (talk) 15:22, 7 January 2017 (EST)
