Single Action Army

Penelope Cushings (Barbara Rhoades) and Arnold the Kid (Robert Yuro) use Single Action Army "Quick Draw" model revolvers. The movie is set in 1870. The Single Action Army revolver was produced beginning in 1873, hence it is an anachronism, as are most of the firearms in this movie.
