Hatfields & McCoys
The following weapons were used in the miniseries Hatfields & McCoys:
Remington 1858 New Army
The Remington 1858 New Army is seen carried by several characters including Jim Vance (Tom Berenger) and "Devil" Anse Hatfield (Kevin Costner). The particular Remington that "Devil" Anse carries throughout the miniseries is a brass-framed model. This is not historically correct, as there were never any brass-framed Remingtons manufactured. The gun in question is a modern unauthentic replica of the Remington by Pietta of Italy known as the "Texas Model". Furthermore, as is revealed in a close up of the gun in Episode 3, the gun appears to have been converted to fire metallic cartridges, as it lacks percussion nipples and has a relief cut into the recoil shield to facilitate the loading of cartridges. This is yet another goof on the filmmakers' part as it was never done in the 19th century. Converting brass-framed percussion revolvers to fire cartridges is generally impractical and discouraged due to the weakness of the brass frame and it's inability to even withstand the pressure of repeated use of stout loose powder and ball loads, let alone from a metallic cartridge, which would cause the gun to shoot loose rather quickly, thus decreasing the shooting life of the firearm immensely. Such conversions on brass framed firearms, however, are feasible when using more anemic, lower-powered cartridges such as .38 S&W (which is what this gun appears to be converted to use) and when using blank cartridges, as the pressure generated by blanks is negligible, which explains how this particular gun made it through filming intact.
