Colt .45 picture

Factual error: This Warner film concerns a pair of post-Mexican War, new-style percussion revolvers stolen from a travelling arms dealer and used in a crime spree. The criminal was unbeatable because of the overwhelming firepower of the guns compared to the single-shot handguns used by everyone else in the film. The title guns used throughout the film were a pair of Colt Dragoon revolvers, in caliber .44. Colt didn't manufacture a .45 revolver until the metallic cartridge era, in 1873.
