Hotchkiss M1914 Machine Gun

Thompson 1880

In fact, doesn’t look like a machine gun, more like an old-fashioned camera… ???


(JonathanCorbett) #4

Garko in His Name Was Holy Ghost and Light the Fuse… Sartana Is Coming, Anthony Quinn in Los Amigos a.k.a. Deaf Smith & Johnny Ears, Jeff Cameron in Pray to God and Dig Your Grave, Robert Woods in Era Sam Wallash… lo chiamavano… ‘E così sia’, José Torres in E lo chiamarono Spirito Santo, Alberto Dell’Acqua in Trinity and Sartana… Those Dirty S.O.B.s (if i remember correctly, 0 kills).

Gatling Guns are also used in Professionals for a Massacre, Take A Hard Ride and Adios Sabata. Fernando Sancho uses a machine gun in both Dynamite Jim and Killer Kid.

I’ll update it with better pictures and specifying the guns some more.


(Farmer_J) #6

What about the most obvious? Robert Woods in Gatling Gun? He kills only 1 person with it.


(ENNIOO) #7

There are some machine gun scenes in “What Am I Doing In The Middle Of The Revolution”

Updated as far as my DVD collection reaches for now.
