Talk:Tom Horn

From Internet Movie Firearms Database - Guns in Movies, TV and Video Games

There are a few other guns in the movie that are not shown or mentioned besides the 1876 Winchester (funny, I always thought it was an 1886 model, which McQueen says in dialogue in the movie, is chambered in .45-60). I've seen documentaries that say the rifle Tom Horn carried was a Model 1894 Winchester .30-30, the Model 1886 in .45-60 is an interesting, though curious, choice for the director to choose. There is a scene where Horn is shot at in the street while he is unarmed, because to that point he hadn't carried a "belly gun" and his rifle was in a scabbard on his horse. The gun, if I recall correctly (doing this from memory) was a Schofield, but I could be wrong. The sheriff, who is in the pay of the cattle barons also, mentions, but does not show, that he has "one of those new German automatics" in a desk drawer. I thought at first this was a reference to the 1896 Mauser, but read later that the sheriff, who is called "Joe Bell" in the movie but in reality was Joe Lefors, was referring to a Luger, which I suppose could be possible since the Luger was adopted by the Swiss in 7.65 caliber in 1900.

Go ahead and screencap the movie. I don't own a copy so I was going off of memory. --Jcordell 00:46, 18 November 2009 (UTC)

I would do so if my computer had that capability (it's rather aged now) and if I had replaced my VHS copy of the movie with a DVD. One of several that I've scheduled to do so. Harleyguy 5:32 21 April 2010.
