Arma costruita dai tedeschi inizialmente nel 1932. Quindi impossibile da trovare durante la rivoluzione messicana! :slight_smile:

La DERRINGER è stata usata moltissimo nei western italiani. Consiglio di guardare a proprosito [URL=http://“http://www.derringer.de/filminf.htm”]questo[/URL] bel sito tedesco.

Very interesting - thanks geepy.
I’m doing a bit of research into the guns at the mo for my story. I’ve just invested in 2 R.L. Wilson books The Peacemakers - Arms and Adventure in the American West and Colt - An American Legend. They’re amazing books - 350ish big pages in each, absolutely packed with colour photos and pictures. They weren’t expensive from Amazon and they truely are an incredible resource.
He’s done one on the Winchester as well. I just might have to get it.
Highly recommended.

Cool, thanks for the interesting display geepy.

I’ve read that the derringer was actually responsible for more deaths than the winchester or colt revolver combined!

Nice one Geepy, very informative.

Excellent work, amigo!
However, the above is not exactly correct. The machine gun used by Franco Nero in DJANGO isn’t exactly a mixture of a Civil War era Gatling Gun and the Maxim. It is actually a much later type of machine gun, similar to ones used in the Spanish Civil War (1930’s). I used to know the model and make of this machine gun, but cannot recall it, right now.

Otherwise, you have done an outstanding job! Better than any other I have seen!

Bravo, amigo! Grazie!

I always assumed the Django machine gun - a prop also used in A Fistful of Dollars - was based on the French mitrailleuse.

Excellent post with great illustrations - thanks!

Excellent, Extranjero! I was unaware of this French weapon. It does, indeed, look similar to the weapon used in DJANGO (and as you rightly pointed out, FISTFUL OF DOLLARS).

Thank to all.
And yes, the django’s machine gun is a strange mix, probably created using many pieces found in some old warehouse ;D
But the Maxim MG08 is better than above model 1910

You can not mix a Maxim Type machine gun and a metrailleuse, because they are both very diferent type of weapons, the first one was indeed the first fully automatic machine gun using only the recoil force of the bullets to fire the following/next one, the French gun was a manual one in the sense that you need some outside force to replace the bullet, (in the French gun and also in the Gatling model a winch or cranck do not know the correct english word ), I think not sure now but it was that type of machine gun maybe a gattling used in the Wild Buch scene.
Also the caliber of both guns were very diferent. The Gatling/Metrailleuse type of machine guns had the trouble of mobility, being move in the battlefield like a cannon, but were use very effectly in Mexico against Villa men, killing thousands of men, that were unware of this gun.

very good collection geepy!!! well done! :slight_smile:

I’d like to test-fire the Colt single-action/with handle-extension. I had a toy one as a kid, but kept the extension detached for holster-drawing/triggerguard-twirling stunts with the gun, itself.
