Young Guns II (1990)

Young Guns II is the 1990 sequel to Young Guns. Emilio Estevez returns as the outlaw known as Billy the Kid, who is unexpectedly reunited with members of his old gang as he is hunted down by his old friend Pat Garrett (William Petersen). As in the original Young Guns, this film does a very interesting job of explaining certain events in the last days of Billy the Kid's life. The cast includes returning Young Guns stars Kiefer Sutherland and Lou Diamond Phillips as well as Balthazar Getty, Alan Ruck, Christian Slater, Viggo Mortensen, and James Coburn (who actually starred as Pat Garrett in Sam Peckinpah's 1973 film Pat Garrett and Billy the Kid).

The following guns were used in the film Young Guns II:

Handguns

Colt Thunderer 1877

Billy the Kid (Emilio Estevez) uses a Colt 1878 Thunderer as his main weapon throughout the film; as this was the revolver carried by the real Billy the Kid on his run.

This isn't an actual Thunderer, as all Thunderers were double-action. However, they did have the Bird's Head grip frame, as this (probably Uberti) revolver does.
"Yoo hoo! I'll make you famous!" Billy the Kid (Emilio Estevez) pulls a Colt 1878 Thunderer.

Single Action Army "Artillery"

The "Artillery" model of the Single Action Army revolver is the most common handgun used in the film, used by Billy, Doc Scurlock (Kiefer Sutherland), Jose Chavez y Chavez (Lou Diamond Phillips), Hendry William French (Alan Ruck), and "Arkansas Dave" Rudabaugh (Christian Slater).

Remington-Keene Frontier

John W. Poe (Viggo Mortensen) also carries a Remington-Keene Deluxe Sporter rifle fitted with a scope and with a shortened magazine tube as his sniper rifle in the film, noted by its external hammer mounted on the back of the bolt. Based on the muzzle diameter it appears to be chambered in .45-70. A similar rifle is seen used in The Sons of Katie Elder, Joe Kidd, and Crossfire Trail.

Shotguns

Double Barreled Shotgun

"Arkansas Dave" Rudabaugh (Christian Slater) uses what appear to be dual sawed-off 12 Gauge Double Barreled Shotguns as his weapon of choice for the film. Hendry William French (Alan Ruck) carries one also. Bob Ollinger (Leon Rippy) keeps a shotgun loaded with 18 dimes in each barrel, which Billy would later say is "the best $1.80 I ever spent!" The full-size 12 gauge is seen in the film as well, notably in the hands of Hendry William French (Alan Ruck).
