Talk:The Hateful Eight
The picture on main page doesn't show the profile, but I think the gun that Joe Gage has hidden under the table is actually an 1847 Colt Walker, not a Remington 1858 New Army.
The one that Gage carries in his belt holster (that Kurt Russell takes from him) seems to be a Colt 1851 Conversion. http://www.lsbauctions.com/1020/consecutive-serial-number-pair-colt-1851-navy-us-navy-bureau-of-ships-cases/
Oswaldo looks to be using a British Bulldog revolver. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/British_Bull_Dog_revolver (Edit: Doh! I mislabeled the Bulldog in the previous pic. It's from Unforgiven. ;) hahahaha) Will try to get this soon :) Thanks) MoviePropMaster2008 (talk) 02:11, 30 June 2016 (EDT)
I can't seem to find any info on the underlever coach gun Joe Gage uses. Any ideas? Looks like an old Husqvarna underlever shotgun, or something close to this: http://www.gunauction.com/buy/10810142/guns-for-sale-antiques/j-livingston-under-lever-12-ga-belgian-exposed-hammer-sxs-shotgun-antique
Guns Used (For Sure)
I've managed to identify a few of the guns in the movie based on my viewing of it in the theater and from clips that have surfaced on YouTube. I'll try to keep this as far from speculation as possible.
Single Action Army
Major Marquis Warren (Samuel L. Jackson) uses several Colt Single Action Army revolvers throughout the film. His own two pistols are both the 4.75" "Quick-Draw" models. One has a nickel finish with wood grips, and the other has a deep blued (and possibly case-hardened) finish with a filed-down front sight, which is a practice among experienced quick-draw shooters to decrease the draw time (Which would make a lot of sense for a bounty hunter and experienced shooter like Major Warren). John Ruth "The Hangman" (Kurt Russell) also uses a Single Action Army, although his is the 7.5" "Cavalry" model and appears to have a brass frame while the rest of the gun is blued or case-colored. It's worth noting that during the film, Major Warren gives his own Quick-Draw Colt to Chris Mannix while he picks up John Ruth's Cavalry model and uses it alongside his own nickel Quick-Draw model. I'm noting this so there's not confusion about the guns Major Warren is using, as he is seen with both a Quick-Draw and a Cavalry Colt, both with blued finishes, and this could be mistaken for a continuity error. --Caldwellb734 (talk) 17:04, 11 April 2016 (EDT)
Joe Gage's Revolver
- It is possible I could be wrong, but I'm pretty sure Joe Gage/Grouch Douglas carries a Colt 1851 Navy, with a cartridge conversion, given the ejector rod. The overall shape, particularly the hammer and open top design, is consistent with the Navy or the 1860 Army, and when John Ruth takes it out of Joe' holster, you can see the barrel is octagonal, whereas the Colt Army has a rounded barrel. As an aside, Oswaldo Mobray/Pete Hiccox seems to carry a converted 1860 army, before being disarmed by John Ruth. Unfortunatly, there aren't that many clear pictures of the gun being used, but as John is dissasembling it, you can see it's an converted 1860 army, and not an 1851 Navy. I have since added both of these to the page.--TravisTee (talk) 18:49, 19 October 2019 (EDT)
