Maverick is the 1994 feature film adaptation of the 1957 Western television series of the same name that starred James Garner. Directed by Richard Donner (Lethal Weapon) and written by William Goldman (Marathon Man, A Bridge Too Far, Misery), the film stars Mel Gibson as Bret Maverick, a card-playing gambler and con artist intent on making enough money to enter a high-stakes poker tournament. The film also co-stars Jodie Foster, Alfred Molina, and original television series star James Garner as Marshal Zane Cooper.
The following weapons were used in the film Maverick (1994):
Single Action Army "Quick Draw"
Bret Maverick (Mel Gibson) carries a Single Action Army "Quick Draw" model with a 4 3~4 inch barrel and wooden grips as his sidearm. Maverick evidently keeps it with all six loaded, as opposed to many actual Old West gunfighters, evident in the scene in which Annabelle Bransford (Jodie Foster) accidentally discharges his revolver when she falls on his holster, and when Maverick tells she and Coop that he has "six bullets" when facing off against the bandits. Several characters, most notably the bank robbers who hold up Maverick, carry the "Quickdraw" model of the Single Action Army revolver.
Single Action Army "Artillery"
In some scenes, Maverick holds instead the Artillery model of the Single Action Army.
Single Action Army (Bird's Head Grip)
Marshal Zane Cooper (James Garner) keeps what appears to be a Single Action Army with white Bird's Head grips as his backup weapon, which Maverick (Mel Gibson) grabs and fires during the confrontation aboard the Lauren Belle after the poker game.
Remington 1866 Derringer
Angel (Alfred Molina) keeps a Remington 1866 Derringer up his sleeve on a device similar to the one used by Robert De Niro in Taxi Driver.
Commodore Duvall (James Coburn) confronts Marshal Cooper with a Colt 1851 Navy with a Richards-Mason cartridge conversion. Maverick takes the revolver when he comes across them.
HJS Frontier Four Derringer
Mrs. Annabelle Bransford (Jodie Foster) keeps an engraved HJS Frontier Four Derringer, a modern version of Sharps Pepperbox, which she lends to Maverick (Mel Gibson) to use during his battle with the outlaws. A woman ejected from the poker game on the Lauren Belle also has a Frontier Four in her purse, which falls out. Two engraved Frontier Four derringers were specially made for the movie by HJS Arms Incorporated (see The HJS Frontier Four Derringer by Ed Buffaloe).
Marshal Zane "Coop" Cooper (James Garner, who played Bret Maverick in the original TV series) carries a nickel Remington 1875 as his primary sidearm.
Angel (Alfred Molina) loads a Henry 1860 onto his horse before he fights Maverick's cronies.
Commodore Duvall (James Coburn) uses a Sharps 1874 with a telescopic sight when chasing after Coop.
Kentucky Flintlock Rifle
The Russian Grand Duke (Paul L. Smith) has a Kentucky Flintlock Rifle when Joseph tells him to go hunting for an "Injun'" (Maverick in disguise) in order to get back the money to pay Maverick.
Winchester Model 1866 "Yellow Boy" Rifle
Joseph (Graham Greene), the Indian tribal chief, holds a Winchester Model 1866 "Yellow Boy" Rifle.
Winchester Model 1873
One of the outlaws Maverick fights and one of the women robbed by the outlaws each have a Winchester Model 1873.
12 Gauge Double Barreled Shotgun
Some of the outlaws and one of Angel's men carry 12 Gauge Double Barreled Shotguns.
