The following weapons were used in the film Viva Las Vegas:

Single Action Army

In several scenes Lucky Jackson (Elvis Presley) and Rusty Martin (Ann-Margret) hold Single Action Army revolvers. During the party of "Sons of the Lone Star State" in a night club, Lucky takes a pair of SAA revolvers from guests, shoots in air and makes a speech to stop all the noisy mess. In this scene he holds a blued "Artillery" revolver with pearl grips and a "Cavalry" revolver with wooden grip. Later, when Lucky and Rusty cosplay Wild West, they both have nickel plated "Artillery" revolvers with stag horn grips.
