Jonah Hex is a 2010 Western supernatural starring Josh Brolin as the title character, a scarred bounty hunter who possesses the power to bring people back from the dead. He is asked by President Ulysses S. Grant to try to stop a vengeful ex-Confederate general-turned-terrorist (who is also responsible for the death of Hex's family) from destroying the U.S. with a stolen "superweapon". The film was adapted from the DC Comic book series and the character was also adapted into the CW series Legends of Tomorrow.

The following weapons were used in the film Jonah Hex:


Single Action Army Cavalry

Jonah Hex (Josh Brolin) carries two Single Action Army Cavalry revolvers as his sidearms. Lilah (Megan Fox) also uses dual Single Action Army revolvers as she and Hex fight to escape Turnbull's Confederate ironclad.

Colt Thuer Derringer

Lilah (Megan Fox) keeps a Colt Thuer Derringer in her room for self-protection. She pulls it to get rid of her obsessed client, Grayden Nash (Rio Hackford), who later sneaks it from its hiding place and fires it at her. Missing once, he puts it to her head and fires again, but she informs him that it is a single-shot weapon.

Winchester Model 1887

One of the guards outside Col. Slocum's (Tom Wopat) fight ring appears to be holding a Winchester Model 1887 shotgun (which is an anachronism when the film is supposed to take place in 1876, the year of the national centennial).

A sniper shoots the flamethrower in Hex's hands, making it useless. Here we can see that it's clearly been built on the body of some sort of rifle.

Dynamite Bundles

Turnbull's men hijacking the train give the Union soldiers an excellent reason not to shoot back at them.

Revolving Cannons

The "superweapon" that is the focus of the film's plot is a belt-fed Gatling-style cannon (similar to an oversized, clunkier CIWS system) supposedly invented by Eli Whitney (the father of the cotton gin). The weapon is designed to blanket an area with a volley of explosive shells, which are then detonated simultaneously by firing a glowing orange "trigger" shell from the central barrel. Quentin Turnbull (John Malkovich) mounts the weapon on an ironclad and plans to use it to level Washington, D.C.
