The Dark Tower is the 2017 fantasy feature film adaptation of the series of novels written by Stephen King. The film was directed by Nikolaj Arcel and stars Idris Elba as Roland Deschain, aka "The Gunslinger" and Matthew McConaughey as Walter Padick.
The following weapons were used in the film The Dark Tower:
Custom Remington 1858 New Army
Roland Deschain (Idris Elba) appears to carry dual customized Remington 1858 New Army revolvers as his weapons of choice. These revolvers have customized swing-out cylinders, double action triggers, and fire .45 cal. (according to the dialog) centerfire ammunition.

The Gunslinger (Idris Elba
) with one of his custom Remington 1858s.
The Gunslinger's custom gun belt, with both individual cartridges and six-round moon clips.
The two-stage firing is seen. The trigger is pulled and sparks fly from the cylinder...
...and then the muzzle flashes.
The Gunslinger does an impressive speed-load, tossing cartridges into his revolver. The custom swing-out cylinder is seen here on the right-hand gun (the left hand gun's cylinder swings out on the opposite side).
While this shot is blurry, the left-hand gun's cylinder clearly swings out the right side of the gun so it swings inward in relation to the Gunslinger's hand.
The Gunslinger practices his grip with Jake (Tom Taylor
). Note that while both guns are seen with swing-out cylinders, no cylinder release latches are seen. Also note the double action-style triggers extended toward the center of the trigger guard.
The Gunslinger fires his Remington 1858.
The Gunslinger aims his Remington 1858, which starts to glow and show the custom engraving.
