All the firearms used in The Quick and the Dead were authentic. None were replicas. I wish I had taken photos of every piece, but I didn't.

I personally carried an 1872 Colt .45. I fired it on two occasions: in the saloon when guns are being fired into the air and in the scene with many hands holding up pistols and firing them into the air.
