Default evans rifle in crossfire trail

The evans was actually manufactured near me and is an interesting gun. Its rare though, id like to actiually see one. Im wondering how Crossfire trail's armorer got a real evans. To my knowlege, no replicas were made so it ahd to be a legit eveans.

The Evans is definately an interesting (if homely) rifle, and I'm also unaware of any repros. That said, although rare they're not unobtainable, I've seen several for sale over the years. The Remington-Keene is actually quite abit rarer, so that's always an interesting one to see. One thing I've noticed about Tom Selleck movies, espescially westerns, is he tends to get the guns right.

The probably got a custom company to make the ammo again, Im just not used to seeing rareguns actually fired, like imagine seeing someone fire a Mars or .45 luger onscreen

I think the rarest gun I've seen actually fired in a film would be the Steyr 1912 in Michael Collins. Of course the Evans, being manually operated, requires less work - which is probably why you see more rare western guns actually fired than others. Another good one is the Starr 1858 in Unforgiven - I'm pretty sure it's original. I don't think repros were even being made at the time.

Well, they're not super rare, but they're not super common either. What impressed me about seeing it shoot was that it fires a unique cartrige which is rare.

Unless it was one of the German conversion to 9mm Luger, which actually ARE super rare...
