: Yes, Bill, there were several "doubles" for Killdeer - much lighter versions for the running scenes, etc. Now, as for the barrels, I'm not really certain. I would think they'd all be the same. Killdeer is Killdeer (not to be confused with the reliable Chipmunk Wounder!)! However, remember Hawkeye often used muskets picked up in the heat of battle. This may be what you are referring to. I'll have to watch that more closely the next time (5,997,621,123rd - I think!) ...
could be as you say.....but I swear in the elk chase, and almost
certainly in the first ambush scene it looks like octagon to round barrel.....doing slow speed. Hard to tell for certain though and being one of the Depends crowd it could be just my eyes fooling me. Sure would like to know though. And even more
than that, sure would like a REALLY good pic or pics of the rifle
known as Killdeer so I could consider making one for meself!!
