The following weapons were used in the film Long Live Your Death:


Luger P08

Throughout the film, Dmitri Vassilovich Orlowsky Franco Nero uses a Luger P08 as his sidearm. At the beginning of the film, Dmitri uses his Luger P08 to threaten members of a fake wedding.

Dominion Arms Double-Barreled Sawed-off Shotgun

Max Lozoya's (Eli Wallach) signature weapon is a Dominion Arms Double-Barreled Sawed-off Shotgun. By far, it is the most powerful weapon in the film, with the ability to kill several enemies with a single shot.

M43 Spanish Mauser

Throughout the film, both Mexican soldiers and Mexican revolutionaries use M43 Spanish Mauser rifles as the most used rifles. These rifles are anachronistic for the time of the Mexican Revolution and are likely standing in for more period-appropriate Mauser rifles extensively used during the conflict, like the Mauser Model 1895.

Machine Guns

Mendoza M1934 (Mocked-up as a Maxim MG08/15)

In the military camp where Dmitri and Lozoya are going to be executed by Mexican soldiers, a modified Mendoza M1934 is seen. This machine gun is an anachronism for the Mexican Revolution, but the weapon appears to be some kind of Maxim MG08/15 mock-up, which is more appropriate for the time.

Mendoza C-1934 - 7x57mm Mauser
For comparison: Maxim MG08/15 - 7.92x57mm Mauser
Due to the chaos that Dmitri, Lozoya and O'Donnell are causing in the military camp, some soldiers are willing to use heavy weaponery against them...

During the festival of Santo Tomás, a group of soldiers set up a Maxim 1895 to protect the place and it is also used during the Mexican army's ambush on the revolutionaries' hideout. The Maxim 1895 seen in the film appear to be Browning M1917 mock-up, as the water jackets have brass caps typical of the latter.

Maxim M1895 - 7.92x57mm Mauser
For comparison: Browning M1917 - .30-06 Springfield
Seeing the crowd arrive at Santo Tomás, the Mexican soldiers decide to let them enter to continue with their carnival, with the group of soldiers with the Maxim remain in position.
The same group does not take its eyes off the carnival, since it seems strange to them that many people have arrived in Santo Tomás without prior notice, this generates distrust among them until they finally realize that the revolutionaries have infiltrated via the crowd.
One of the armored vehicles that arrived in Santo Tomás to support the Mexican soldiers in their battle against the revolutionaries is fitted with a Maxim 1895 (or mock-up).
When Max Lozoya goes to receive all the weapons that were purchased with part of the money stolen from the Mexican Army in Santo Tomás, they are unexpectedly ambushed by the latter.
It is not known exactly how the soldiers were able to get that machine gun up there without the revolutionaries noticing.


Sheriff's Office Gun Rack

When Mary O'Donnell (Lynn Redgrave) goes to the Yuma police station to bribe Sheriff Randall to free Max Lozoya (erroneously confused with El Salvador), a gun rack appears in the background with some handguns.

In the gun rack you can see what appear to be two Harrington & Richardson Young American Bulldogs, a Colt 1862 Police with nickel finish and pearl grips (possibly a mock-up), and a Gerstenberger & Eberwein EM-GE Model 3 pistol.
