    Did some googling
    Blondie's gun was a Colt navy cartridge conversion, which seems a little odd considering the civil War time frame of the movie.

    Angel Eyes had an 1858 Remington and Tuco apparently had one made from three different and totally incompatible guns

    Actually the gun that was used in the movie was made bu uberti couldnt tell you which model though. I know this only because I was watching an old episode of shooting u.s.a in which the talked about it.So if you really wont to know what model it was I would suggest maybe trying there website you might be able to find out there.

    The Old Fuff is far from being an expert on Clint Eastwood's western revolvers. However those that are interested should look at the following link:

    I also understand that Cimarron Arms is, or is going to import a replica of "the" revolver, consisting of a cartridge-converted 1851 Colt Navy with a silver rattlesnake on the stocks.

    You gunslingers have at it... :D

    Personally I prefer the 1860 or 1872 Open Top to the Navy

    Cartridge conversions were common (Not Dubious) in the post war era... it was no more anachronistic than most movies.

    Also consider the fact it was shot in Spain. Who knows what rules they had to 'fly under' to make the movies happen. We are probably lucky they weren't using break-top Weblys.

    say Aaah!

    Those r-e-v-o-l-v-e-r-s, as Tuco said, are great. All with interchangeable parts.
    Josyln's, Farrout, Smith and Wesson, Colt.

    Also, I thought I saw Clint using Hoppe's No.9 when he was scrubbing his bore in that hotel room. Apparently, the manly scent of it turned the lady at the desk on.

    But, what is that special Italian ammunition that whines off, in the distance, no matter what it hits? Wheeee
    Then, there is the stopping power that stuff has!

    Fiocchi?

    You can even buy the poncho on that site Old Fuff posted.

    But I think only Clint can pull it off without looking ... well ... effeminate.

    I agree on the Poncho DS... :D

    Saw one exactly likes Clint's in Mexico while visiting, and thought "Oh I gotta have it!"

    Luckily my sense kicked in just before I approached the vendor, "Where in Gods name would I ever wear that, and being a big guy would'nt I look like a fat woman in a MuMu if I did?"

    Yeah, but the movie takes place *during* the Civil War.

    Although for sure, the rest of the Westerns were even more anachronistic--I remember seeing John Wayne wield a Remington 1858 in a part of Red River that is supposed to take place around 1847 or so.

    It's a neat gun, but keep in mind the "Man With No Name" revolver does NOT have an ejector rod.

    Still..............

    By the way, Clint's poncho was GREEN, not brown as most believe.

    Green?

    Hmmm, that doesn't seem to be correct, I just watched a clip and it's brown.

    DS, kick a little cow poo on the boots, scuff up the poncho, stick a nausea inducing cheroot in your mouth and squint at the sun (or hellish camera lights) and you'll carry it off just fine.... :D

    Hey, would any of YOU go up and tell him he's a girly man for wearing the poncho in that case? Not ME BRUTHA!

    I would go around making Henry Fonda's facial expression in "Once Upon a Time in the West," but but I swear it makes my teeth shift.
