*trying to be serious* Okay okay *raising his hand frantically for
attention* I have a real question!!

Being a guy who likes to make rifles, I thought I noticed that there
were TWO guns carried by DDL in the movie. Now my tired ancient old
eyes may have been deceiving me, but it looked to me like in one or
more shots he was carrying what looked to be a smooth bore rifle with
an octagon-to-round barrel, while at other times he appeared to be
using a true rifle (like when he is covering the courier from the
ramparts) which had a fully octagon barrel. Did anybody else notice
this, or was it just these old eyes playing tricks on me? Does anybody know if there were several rifles made for DDL for the movie?
Maybe Soldier One or Two knows? Anybody?
