The Son - Season 1
The following weapons were used in Season 1 of the television series The Son:
Eli McCullough (Pierce Brosnan) carries a Colt M1911 chambered in .45ACP on his right hip, with a double spare magazine pouch on his left. Historically this should be the original 1911 variant as the 1911A1 was not introduced until 1924 (9 years after the events portrayed in the series).
Colt Model 1903
Phineas McCullough (David Wilson Barnes) carries a Colt Model 1903 in a shoulder holster. As Phineas was a business man and a gentleman, the use of a compact pistol in a discrete/concealable shoulder holster would be more appropriate for the character then a large-framed revolver in a belt holster. In the time period of 1915, the pistol could be either the Model 1903 or the Model 1908, but the 1903 is more likely.
A Mauser C96 is also used by Neptune (J. Quinton Johnson).
Colt 1851 Navy revolvers are used by Texas Rangers. In "Scalps" (S1E10), a Colt revolver is handed to a young Eli.
Single Action Army Cavalry Model (7.5" barrel)
Tom Sullivan (Matthew Posey) carries a Cavalry Single Action Army with a 7.5" barrel. Additionally there are multiple characters seen with the Single Action Army. Many of them extras.
Smith & Wesson No. 3 Schofield
Pedro Garcia (Carlos Bardem) appears to be carrying a Smith & Wesson Schofield. Though only seen holstered the Schofield grip is distinctive.
Smith & Wesson .44 Hand Ejector 2nd Model
Pete McCullough (Henry Garrett) is seen with a holstered large framed Smith & Wesson .44 Hand Ejector 2nd Model . In "No Prisoners" (S1E05), Sally McCullough (Jess Weixler) holds the revolver. When Sally uses the revolver it can be identified as a 2nd Model due to the lack of the ejector rod housing found on the "Triple Lock" model that preceded it.
In the series premiere "First Son of Texas" (S1E01), a young Eli (Jacob Lofland) carries what appears to be a Hawken Rifle with an octagonal barrel and double set triggers while fishing. He uses it to hunt a turkey and later defend the homestead.
Winchester Model 1907
Eli McCullough (Pierce Brosnan) and some of the ranch hands use a self loading Winchester Model 1907 chambered in .351WSL as their primary long guns. Minister Frank (author Philipp Meyer in a cameo) holds a Winchester Model 1907 in "Scalps" (S1E10).
Winchester Model 1895 Rifle
A Winchester Model 1895 is used by one of Eli's men.
Winchester Model 1895 Carbine
The carbine version of the Winchester Model 1895 also is seen.
Winchester Model 1873
Winchester Model 1873 Rifles are carried by several characters in the series.
Winchester 1892 Saddle Ring Carbine
Phineas McCullough (David Wilson Barnes) carries a Winchester 1892 Saddle Ring Carbine in "Scalps" (S1E10).
Winchester Model 1894
Neptune (J. Quinton Johnson) also uses a Winchester Model 1894. In addition, Pete McCullough (Henry Garrett) is also seen carrying a Winchester Model 1894 carbine.
Krag-Jorgensen Model 1896 Carbine
Krag-Jorgensen M1896 Carbine is used by Niles Gilbert (James Parks) as well as others in Season 1.
Remington Model 8
Phineas McCullough (David Wilson Barnes) carries the Remington Model 8 autoloading rifle in "Honey Hunt" (S1E08).
Winchester Model 1897
A Winchester M1897 also is used by one of Eli's men.
12 Gauge Double Barreled Shotgun
Both Neptune (J. Quinton Johnson) and Tom Sullivan (Matthew Posey) use Double Barreled Shotguns in "No Prisoners" (S1E05). Eli McCullough briefly is seen with the shotgun after a hunt in "Honey Hunt" (S1E08).
In "Death Song" (S1E04), Neptune (J. Quinton Johnson) uses a Lewis Gun when battling opposing forces at the river. This is a possible anachronism as earnest production on the Lewis gun did not start until late 1914, with adoption by the British military in 1915. Although it is possible that one was being used in Texas in 1915, it is unlikely.
