Kit & Co. is a 1974 East German adventure movie directed by Konrad Petzold and based on the short stories collection Smoke Bellew by Jack London, set during the Alaska gold fever in late 19th century.
The following weapons were used in the film Kit & Co.:
Colt Single Action Army Cavalry Model
One of Kit Bellew's (Dean Reed) revolvers is a Colt Single Action Army, supposedly Cavalry model. Captain Consadine (Hannjo Hasse) of Royal Canadian Mounted Police (at that time it was named Royal North-West Mounted Police) also carries a SAA Cavalry revolver.

Custom Martini Schuetzen Rifle
Several gold prospectors, notably Shunk Wilson (Gerry Wolff), carry rifles (doubtless a single prop reused) that appear to be custom Martini Schuetzen rifle. It has a tube under the barrel that can be a tube magazine (maybe a mockup) or some construction detail.

A closer view. The shape of the trigger guard and lever looks similar to the Swiss Martini, gived as sample.
Mauser Schebenbüchse Rifle
