Wilford Brimley, as Joe Gill, carries an unusual Evans repeating rifle. The Evans rifle, invented by Warren R. Evans of Thomaston, Maine, was produced only from 1873 to 1879. Gill, who admits to not being a very good shot, says he likes it because he can fire 28 shots before having to reload. See more
