Character mistake: Chamberlain's sidearm is a Colt Army .44, which uses a peg to secure the barrel to the cylinder axle. During the fight, Chamberlain replaces the empty cylinder with a fresh one, pushes the barrel against a log to seat it, but never shoves the peg in. A loose barrel might well result in a misalignment of that barrel with the chamber being fired, which would blow the barrel off the weapon.
