    Just finished watching Clint Eastwood's "High Plains Drifter" - anyone know what make and model lever-action rifles the townspeople are using in that movie?

    No, but now it is something I'll pay attention to.

    Vaguely remember it was a Henry model of 1860 but don't go to the bank on that. It has been a while since I watched it.

    You can bet they were Italian made replica's though!

    All the Spaghetti Westerns used them.

    "High Plains Drifter," in my opinion, couldn't rightly be considered a Spaghetti Western, since it was directed by Eastwood himself, not by someone like Sergio Leone.
