Chino (Valdez, il mezzosangue)
Chino (original Italian title Valdez, il mezzosangue ("Valdez, the Halfbreed"), also released in English as Valdez the Halfbreed and The Valdez Horses) is a 1973 co-production Italian-Spanish-French-American Western movie directed by John Sturges and Duilio Coletti and starring Charles Bronson as Chino Valdez, a half-breed horse breeder. The movie is based on the novel "The Valdez Horses" by Lee Hoffman.
Note: Jill Ireland's character is called Louise in non-English releases.
The following weapons were used in the film Chino (Valdez, il mezzosangue):
Single Action Army
Single Action Army "Artillery" revolvers are used by landowner Maral (Marcel Bozzuffi) and his men, and also by local sheriff (Ettore Manni). As usually in European filmed Western movies, the revolvers are probably Italian made replicas.
Winchester Model 1873
Chino Valdez (Charles Bronson) uses a Winchester Model 1873 carbine in several scenes. The carbine has both saddle ring and underbarrel sling swivel, more common for European replicas rather for original American rifle.
Winchester Model 1892
During the confrontation with Maral's men Chino's Winchester Model 1873 switches to a Winchester Model 1892 Saddle Ring Carbine. His rivals also carry Winchester 1892 carbines.
Remington Rolling Block
Several Indian warriors carry Remington Rolling Block rifles and carbines. As the movie was filmed in Spain, these guns are very likely of Spanish military patterns.
A short barreled Coach Gun with exposed hammers is seen in Valdez' house. In various scenes the gun is used by Chino and by his young apprentice Jamie Wagner (Vincent Van Patten).
