Jonas Hackett (Stephen Lang) takes a Winchester Model 1873 rifle with him to the town meeting. Several Model 73 rifles are seen stacked on the wall at the town meeting. Jonas cocks it when he finds Daniel (Nick Stahl) and again when Stiles (Scott Glenn) and his gang arrive. Note: Having cocked it three times he has already ejected two live rounds. Most of Stiles gang members are armed with Model 73 rifles which are seen several times in the film. One of the farmers at the end is also seen with what appears to be a Model 73.

Merwin Hulbert

Pecos Bill (Patrick Swayze) carries two Merwin Hulbert revolvers as his weapon of choice in the film. He first uses them to shoot the gun out of Grub (John Ryan) hand and to shoot the trigger finger off of Zeb (Scott Wilson). He also fires at them while they run away when they inform him it's Wednesday not Sunday. Pecos later uses them to stop the saw at the lumber plant from sawing Daniel Hackett (Nick Stahl) in half. He last uses it to shoot the trigger fingers off of all of Stiles (Scott Glenn) gang members.

Mauser C96

J.P. Stiles (Scott Glenn) carries two Mauser C96 pistols as his weapon of choice. He uses them to hold up and then shoot Jonas Hackett (Stephen Lang). He aims them when the gang tries to escape Liberty City but can't get a shot off because he's out of range. He also uses it when taking the dead from Daniel Hackett (Nick Stahl). He last uses it when the mine is collapsing and he fires them akimbo at Daniel.

You can just make out the handle of one of Stiles' C96s in his holster. Looks like ivory or pearl, and note that the hammer is cocked as well.
