There are several firearms throughout the mini-series that should not be there as they didn't exist at the time. Bigfoot Wallace was using a Remington model 1858 rifle, but as the model name indicates that rifle was not available until 1858, Dead Man's Walk takes place in 1842. Several people, including Captain Salazar and Gus, are seen using Colt Walker revolvers, but they were not available until 1847. See more »
There were some elements of this film that I found unrealistic and caused me to stop watching. Here are a few examples. At one point, a group of well armed men sit and watch with horror as an Indian on horseback chases down and scalps one of their own. They were carrying long rifles and the distance was clearly within range of a Hawkins type rifle (let's say 100 yards or so). Even if they had been out of range, they could have mounted horses and moved up. In any case, in that situation, I'm sure any frontiersman would have shot that Indian right off of his pony. Also, in one scene, one of the characters picks up a severed turtle head. It looks realistic enough but from the way he squeezes it and it caves in without any resistance, one can see that the head is hollow and made of rubber. A little more careful handling by the actor would not have given this away although we all know a real turtle head wasn't used in filming.
