I was watching a Western that came out in 1953. War Arrow it starred Jeff Chandler, Maureen O'Hara.

What cot my attention they were using 1860 Henrys. There was also 92 Winchesters with the forearm removed.

Nice to see the Henry take center stage.

It is good to see the Henry’s in those older movies. I see the 92’s with the forearm removed in quite a few of the oldies. I guess they are trying to make them look like a Henry. One of the blessings (or curses) of playing this game is knowing the firearms. It always bothers me when the movie is set in the 1870’s etc in the old west and they all use 92 Winchester’s . I watched “The Searchers “ again the other night which is set a few years after the civil war and there are the 92’s and 1873 colts. I have learned to live with it.

They did the same thing on The Undefeated. War Arrow is a good movie.

A good series with 1860 Henry's is "Godsend"

One scene they open a crate and start handing them out. 

Never saw that many original 1860 .

The 1950 movie, Broken Arrow, starring Jimmy Stewart, was supposedly set in the late 1870's. Central to the plot is a war between whites and Cochise's band in the southwest. There are some glaring problems with this - for instance, Cochise died in 1874. Another is evident in this still from the movie.

Watched Badland last night, pretty good movie, Spencer and 1860 Henry featured rifles. It's on Netflix, has Bruce Dern as a character and Wes Studi.

My new pet peeve is all the pistol caliber rifles carried by cowboys with bandolier full of rounds that would never cycle through the action. Worst of all is War Wagon

Actually, Stewart’s character, based on the real friend of Cochise, has an opening narration that says the movie is set in 1872.

Wanted Dead or Alive gets my vote for the worst.
