1864 is an eight-part Danish miniseries which deals with Denmark's defeat in the Second Schleswig War between the Kingdom of Denmark and the German Confederation (Prussia and Austria) in 1864.
The main story is about the two Danish brothers Laust and Peter Jensen who both fall in love with Inge Juhl and later fight in the Battle of Dybbøl on 18 April 1864.

1864 based on the books "Slagtebænk Dybbøl" and "Dommedag Als" by Tom Buk-Swienty and it's also the most expensive Danish TV production until now.

The following weapons can be seen in the miniseries 1864:


Danish 1849 percussion Pistol

In Episode 1, a young Laust plays with a 1849 Percussion Pistol and in Episode 8, the father of Didrich (Pilou Asbæk) commits suicide with this pistol.

Colt 1851 Navy

Danish and Prussian soldiers can be seen with Colt 1851 Navy revolvers. Peter Jensen (Jens Sætter-Lassen) incorrectly fires without cocking the hammer. It's correct that the Prussians use the Colt 1851 Navy because the German Confederation bought several Colts from the United States.

Colt Walker 1847

Prussian Death's Head Hussars use Colt Walker 1847s in Episode 5. The revolver is most likely representing a Colt Brevete, a copy of various Colt pistols made by different European countries during the 19th Century, as it is highly unlikely authentic Colt Walkers were used by Prussian troops as not many were made and none were sold outside the United States.
