The Comancheros

Factual error: The movie is set in 1843-44, when the rest of the world is still using cap and ball weapons, yet Ranger captain Jake Cutter is wielding a gunbelt with filled cartridge loops and a colt six-gun.

Factual error: The rifles that Jake Cutter has Paul Regret dig up are Henry repeaters, or possibly 1866 Winchesters. Either way weapons unavailable in the period depicted in the movie.

Factual error: Tully Crow dies with a model 1858 Remington New Model Army revolver in his hand, quite a feat in the year 1843.

Question: What does the term "grey dawn" mean?

Chosen answer: There's no specific meaning. Metaphorically, it would mean that it is the beginning of something that is dismal, is going to be long and difficult to achieve, or may not end well. Basically, it's a "bad omen."
