In the film, Custer is correctly portrayed as carrying some sort of early double-action revolver rather than the normal Single Action Army that was issued to the rest of the 7th Cav. While Custer's armament at the Battle of Little Bighorn is not completely known, the general consensus is that he was armed with a .50-70 Rolling Block Remington rifle, as well as his pair of Webley Royal Irish Constabulary pistols chambered in either .422 or .450 that had been presented to him, as well as a matching pair to his brother Tom, by the British some years before.

I actually just bought this movie(ebay) for a significant amount. Not because I really thought it was that good, but because I`m totally hung up on the history of native Americans, and especially obsessed with the battle of Little Big Horn. In that respect I was NOT disappointed by this movie.
The climactic battle scene was actually very satisfying to me, because i was afraid it would a long wait for nothing. I was eager to see if they had managed to bring the great battle to a realistic scale (3000 thousand warriors, enormous Sioux camp). I was almost completely convinced. Both the choreography and the attention to historical details was flawless! All in all a must for "indians`/western fans" but also watchable for people interested in historical/war dramas. When that is said, this is after all a TV-production, and my review must be seen in that context.
