Well, time to maybe eat some words I posted earlier about a .351 Winchester not being present at the ambush. I read a 1999 article in Oklahombres Volume X, Number 2 called "It's Death to Bonnie and Clyde" by Sandy Jones and Bob Fischer, where in the footnotes it is mentioned that a 1907 with a 10-round magazine may have been used by Dallas County Deputy Bob Alcorn. They mention "new evidence" and a gun being displayed in the Waco Museum but nothing else. Anyway, there is a possibility one was used so having one in the movie is not as bad as I thought. They still should have gotten an earlier one to match the 1934 time frame.
