Django is a 1966 Italian Western directed by Sergio Corbucci and stars Franco Nero as a drifter who agrees to steal a cache of gold from the Mexican Army and comes into conflict with a crazed army major. While Nero and Corbucci would collaborate on an official sequel in 1987 ( Django 2 - Il grande ritorno aka Django Strikes Again), the name "Django" would be utilized in numerous Italian westerns that had nothing to do with this film. This film would also serve as an inspiration for the title of Quentin Tarantino's 2012 film Django Unchained, for which Nero had a small cameo.

The following weapons were used in the film Django:


Colt Single Action Army

Django (Franco Nero) and General Hugo Rodríguez (José Bódalo) use a Colt Single Action Army throughout the movie.

Machine Guns

Montigny Mitrailleuse/Maxim 1895 Hybrid

Django lugs around a machine gun in his coffin. It is a very inaccurate depiction of a Mitrailleuse Machine Gun that fires belt-fed ammunition. There are several scenes where the machine gun fires repeatedly but the belt never feeds through. Contrary to popular belief, this is not the same gun that was used in A Fistful of Dollars, as evidenced by the muzzle. This prop has much less holes in the muzzle compared one used by Gian Maria Volonte in the first movie of the Dollars trilogy.

Franco Nero would again use a machine gun mockup with multiple barrels and a belt-fed firing system in Compañeros and The Mercenary, both directed by Sergio Corbucci.
