Treasure of Silver Lake (German title: Der Schatz im Silbersee) is a 1962 German Western film directed by Harald Reinl and based on the novel by Karl May. Starring Lex Barker as Old Shatterhand, Pierre Brice as Winnetou, chief of the Mescalero Apache tribe, and Herbert Lom as Colonel Brinkley.

The following weapons were used in the film Treasure of Silver Lake:


Bodeo M1889 revolver

Fred Engel (Götz George) uses a Bodeo M1889 during the shootout with the bandits.

Bodeo Model 1889 Type II - 10.4x22mm Italian

Smith & Wesson Victory Model

Several characters use Smith & Wesson Victory Model revolvers. The appearance of this revolver in a film taking place in the 1800s is extremely anachronistic due to the fact the Victory Model was only made during World War II.

Röhm RG34

Hilton (Ilija Ivezic) appears to be armed with a Röhm RG34 revolver. Its appearance is also anachronistic, although it may be standing in for the somewhat similar looking Colt Single Action Army.

Custom "Henry's 25-wounds rifle"

Old Shatterhand (Lex Barker) is armed with one of his signature weapons, a "Henry 25-shot Carbine" (Henrystutzen, as it is called in the original novels), made by Mr. Henry, a fictional gunsmith from St. Louis. The screen gun is a custom prop, made specially for the movies, apparently built around a Gasser M1870.
