Red Sun (French title: Soleil rouge) is a 1971 French-Italian-Spanish Western film directed by Terence Young (Dr. No) and starred Charles Bronson, Toshirô Mifune, Alain Delon and Ursula Andress. Despite having French-Italian-Spanish production companies, the film was shot in English.
The following weapons were used in the movie Red Sun (Soleil rouge):
Single Action Army
Single Action Army revolvers are used by various characters. According to the text at the start of the film, it takes place in 1870, which makes the use of Single Action Army revolvers anachronistic as production for the Colt SAA only began in 1873.

Winchester Model 1894
The Winchester Model 1894 is used by various characters. Its use is anachronistic as the film takes place in 1870.

The soldiers accompanying the mail train, and several Indians in a later scene, are armed with Mannlicher rifles, likely the Carcano M91. This is also anachronistic as the Caracino series of rifle began production in 1891, roughly 21 years after the film's time period. Also, in reality, the US Army used single-shot Springfield rifles.
