It annoys me when writers of fiction get simple facts about guns wrong ,petty but thats me .Currently reading a book with several references to guns amongst which is a Remington O/U
So question is did Remington have a O/U on the market in the 1940's ?

Movies are far worse for accuracy.

We had a fun thread about guns in movies not long ago; I'll try to find it.

Big Jake's Greener



Crescent American Gun Co.



John Wayne in "McLINTOCK!" pheasant hunting (presumably in Colorado prior to pheasant introduction, and with a nice white line recoil pad)
The scene starts at 1:16 and good view of gun is at 1:18

I recently read the Bruno crime series by Martin Walker. The protagonist is a French chief of police in a fictional town in the SW of France. He hunts becasse' with his old Manufrance and in one of the later books inherits a Purdey. At one point the author refers to one of Bruno's shotguns as "double action". Good reads, however. Michael Gruber, a liberal gun nut, is fastidious in his descriptions of guns in the Jimmy Paz triology. One of them is a "Red 9" Mauser C96. Gil

Tom Wolfe's "A Man in Full" revolves around the financial problems of a guy with a plantation in south GA called 'turp'ntine'. He supplies his quail hunters with .410 model 21 shotguns and the appropriate "buckshot" to shoot the birds with. Made me so mad I marked up the errors in the book.

Also introduced the secret banker's term called 'saddleblanket'...Geo

I recall a TV episode of Gunsmoke where Festus had ridden out a good distance alone. This episode was clearly dated as being in the 1870s. In one scene Festus pulled his rifle from the saddle scabbard & it was clearly either an 1892 or 1894 Winchester, not the 1873 it should have been for the date shown.
