Winnetou and the Crossbreed
Winnetou and the Crossbreed (original German title Winnetou und das Halbblut Apanatschi) is a 1966 Eurowestern directed by Harald Philipp. It is the ninth movie in Winnetou film series, based on the novels by Karl May. In Winnetou and the Crossbreed Winnetou (Pierre Brice) and Old Shatterhand (Lex Barker) oppose a gand of brigands under the command of Curly Bill (Ilija Dzuvalekovski). The gang makes its base in a frontier town and now hunts for a young half-Apache girl Apanatschi (Uschi Glas) who knows the whereabouts of a rich gold mine.
The following weapons were used in the film Winnetou and the Crossbreed:
All Curly Bill's brigands are armed with 5-shot Arminius revolvers with 6" barrels. It appear to be the same long barreled version of HW-1S signal revolver that is widely used in other Winnetou movies. The revolvers, captured from brigands, are occasionally used by Old Shatterhand (Lex Barker), Apanatschi (Uschi Glas) and Apanatschi's fiance Jeff Brown (Gotz George).
Double Barreled Shotgun
Apanatschi (Uschi Glas) and her father McHaller (Walter Barnes) use Double Barreled Shotguns while hunting. McHaller's shotgun is later seen in hands of Pincky (Vladimir Leib).
"Henry 25-shot Carbine"
Old Shatterhand (Lex Barker) is armed with one of his signature weapons, "Henry 25-shot Carbine" (Henrystutzen, as it is called in original novels), made by Mr. Henry, a fictional gunsmith from St. Louis. The screen gun is a custom prop, made specially for the movies.
"The Silver Gun"
The double barreled rifle, named "The Silver Gun", is Winnetou's (Pierre Brice) signature weapon.
"Liddy" Break Action Rifle
Sam Hawkens' (Ralf Wolter) weapon is long barreled hunting rifle, nicknamed "Liddy". While its outlook resembles Martini-Henry rifles, it is clearly seen to be break action gun. During the shootout in Rocky-Town Sam's rifle is also used by Apanatschi (Uschi Glas).
Winchester Model 1892
Jeff Brown (Gotz George), Curly Bill (Ilija Dzuvalekovski) and several of his brigands use Winchester Model 1892 rifles.
Break Action Rifle
Many of Curly Bill's brigans and railway construction workers are armed with single shot top-break hunting rifles. Such rifles were (and still are) produced by various manufacturers in Europe and America, often referred by the German term Kipplaufbuchse.
