Haven’t watched it….could it have been a 1878 Single Shot by the Browning Brothers? They sold the patent to Winchester.
My guess , the movie used a Uberti replica.

As much as i enjoy Yellowstone, 1883 doesn’t much interest me due to Tim McGraw acting in it.

Those who don't learn from history are doomed to repeat it (usually in summer school).

All of which proves one of two things.
1. We once had time travel and folks in the 1800s used it to acquire more modern weapons, but apparently couldn't go any further forward than 1897.
2. Script writers apparently think all guns currently in existence were invented prior to 1600 and therefore can be used in any script set in any time period after 1600.

In Kelly's Heroes the US Army soldier in the bell tower that was sniping German soldiers.....was using a Soviet M91/30 Mosin Nagant sniper rifle.
Where the hell did he find that? Did he misplace his 1903 A4 Springfield sniper rifle or M1D Garand sniper rifle?

Well, at least the Mosin is plausible and would have been in the theater. The M1D hadn't been developed yet.

But yes, the M1903A4 would have been his issued sniper. Props just handed the guy a scoped gun.

Could have been a Finnish Mosin, but still should have been an ‘03-A4 as mentioned.

As far as the OP goes, probably just another example of today’s mindset where the younger generations don’t pay as close attention to detail… that would be the armorer’s faux pas, as I’m sure they could have obtained the right model had they tried.

Coulda been a .30-06 Mosin: Russian three-line rifle, caliber 7.62mm (.30 inches). Probably with the camouflage that makes it appear like a Springfield until it's photographed.
