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.
