Wild Wild West (1999)

Contents


Colt 1860 Army

The main sidearm of U.S. Army Captain James "Jim" West (Will Smith) is a Colt 1860 Army revolver with a two-tone finish and custom "JW" grips. Several other persons use the same.

"That'd be an awful career decision, darling." West points his Colt 1860 Army in a prostitute's face as she is reaching for her john's pistol hanging off the bedpost. Note the "JW" on the handle.

Colt 1861 Navy

When West fires his sidearm into the roof of the White House to convince a disguised Gordon that he is impersonating the President, the gun is the subtly different Colt 1861 Navy.

Colt 1861 Navy - .36 caliber.
West fires his sidearm into the ceiling. This is actually a Colt Blackpowder Signature Series 1861 .36 Navy converted to .38 by Kenny Howell. Two guns were sent and converted, they were later sold at the Stembridge Auction - Regards, Tecolote

Colt 1862 Police (with Richards-Mason conversion)

When an impertinent and not-too-sharp Pinkerton detective reaches for Captain West's main sidearm, West speedily draws his backup gun, a Colt 1862 Police with Richards-Mason conversion and nickel finish.

Colt Single Action Army Cavalry

General McGrath (Ted Levine) carries a Single Action Army as his main sidearm. He uses it to casually gut-shoot an irate patron at Fat-Can's brothel, and threatens Dr. Arliss Loveless (Kenneth Branagh) with it as his men are slaughtered.

Loveless: After you, sir.

Remington 1875

A nickel Remington 1875 is seen pulled on West during Loveless's ball.

Colt Theur Derringer

Artemus Gordon (Kevin Kline), despite his professed dislike for firearms, keeps a single-shot Colt Theur Derringer on a spring-loaded catch inside a belt buckle. West later slips it to him in Loveless's hideout, and Gordon conceals it on his wrist spring (appears to be a modified holdout device). The pistol is actually a modern reproduction known as the 4th Model Derringer, as opposed to the time period appropriate 3rd Model derringer and can be distinguished by its smaller .22 bore rather than the .41 bore of the original pistol.

Winchester Model 1873

West removes a cut-down "Mare's Leg" style Winchester Model 1873 from the arms cache in The Wanderer and cocks it one-handed as he and Gordon ride to confront Loveless.

This is the screen-used Winchester 1873 cut-down "Mare's Leg" as seen on the panel wall in the film.
West cocks the Winchester Model 1873 one-handed. (You can tell it's a '73 rifle rather than an '87 shotgun because of a number of identifiers, the most noticeable of which are the shape of the receiver and the brass loading block seen from the bottom.)

Gatling Gun

Amazonia (Frederique Van Der Wal) fires a Gatling Gun mounted aboard the Tarantula. Gatling Guns are also mounted on Loveless's armored tank.

Panel of guns

Aboard The Wanderer, Jim West opens a wall panel to reveal a cache of guns (need some ID'ing). :Colt Model 1861 Navy with shoulder stock , at top

The other panel has some "steampunk" weapons, most of which are actual 19th century weapons (or custom, non-firing replicas) fixed up to look that way. Some of the guns are in their original configuration, but others are heavily modified which makes them difficult to identify.

Customized LeMat Revolver fitted with what appears to be a scope, an adjustable shoulder stock, and a brass attachment to the under barrel. - At the top, second one down from the bayonets.
Customized Lefaucheux Model 1858 Pinfire Revolver revolver with a gold-washed cylinder and fitted with a scope. - Below the LeMat.
Lefaucheux Model 1854 Pinfire Revolver fitted with what appears to be a fluted cylinder and mocked up to look like some kind of fictional steampunk gun. - Above the LeMat
Two Sharps Pepperbox Derringers, one with ivory grips. - Below the LeMat, to the right of the Lefaucheux.
Something slightly identical to the Joseph Lang Transitional Revolver (this one is probably a prop or some kind of toy). - Under the pepperboxes.
James Reid "My Friend" Knuckleduster Revolver - Under the Transitional Revolver
Pepperbox revolver - The first gun under the LeFaucheux.
Flintlock Pistol - The second gun under the Lefaucheux.
Stevens Lord Single Shot Pistol fitted with a strange prop cylinder-like attachment to look like some odd, fictional steampunk revolver-type contraption of a handgun. - To the left of the bayonets.

I can't identify the last one. I don't recognize it. I'll try, but anyone who can see good enough and can identify it, please do.

Remington 1858 "Cattleman's Carbine"

A Remington 1858 New Army "Cattleman's Carbine" is seen in the cabinet aboard The Wanderer, and Amazonia (Frederique Van Der Wal) also carries one (equipped with a telescopic sight) aboard the Tarantula, before she is ordered at gunpoint to toss it over the side.

Wheelchair Gun(s)

For self-defense, Dr. Arliss Loveless's (Kenneth Branagh) wheelchair is equipped with twin barrels at the front of the left arm and rear of the right arm, to deliver twin loads of double-aught buckshot. He uses the rear-facing guns to kill General McGrath (Ted Levine), and attempts to use the front-facing guns to shoot West.
