The gun real or fiction?
20 September 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I really enjoyed this movie it seemed to have a different flavor than most of the B westerns of that day. Pretty good acting and unusual plot. The only thing I can't understand is why did they call the gun a Colt Wesson 44. Did Colt and Wesson ever collaborate and make a .44 caliber hand gun? I've searched Google until my fingers are sore:-) I can find no references to a Colt Wesson .44. So I'm wondering why was there none made or was it such a rare gun that the complete Google catalog has no info on it? That didn't ruin the movie for me at all and then they mentioned a 7 shot revolver when Pinch was to be hired and the man (can't remember his name) but he was the partner in the saloon any way he said make sure and use a 7 shot pistol 1 more than the 44. I didn't know there were any 7 shot guns back then either. Anyone have any info on these 2 questions?
