The Mask of Zorro is the 1998 swashbuckler action film that marked the return of the legendary masked crusader to the big screen. Antonio Banderas stars as Alejandro Murrieta, who is chosen by the original swordsman to carry on the tradition of Zorro to the people of Mexico. The film was directed by Martin Campbell (Casino Royale) and was also one of the first major starring roles for Catherine Zeta-Jones. Both Banderas and Zeta-Jones as well as director Campbell would return for the 2005 sequel The Legend of Zorro.

The following weapons were used in the film The Mask of Zorro:



Flintlock Pistol

The Flintlock Pistol is used prominently in the movie, such as by Joaquin Murrietta (Victor Rivers) alongside his pocket flintlock pistol to threaten the guards during the strongbox robbery. He later uses the same pistol to commit suicide after being wounded by Captain Love (Matt Letscher). A number of pistols are seen hanging on the wall of the barracks when Alejandro (Antonio Banderas) attempts to steal a horse and on the wall in Captain Love's (Matt Letscher) quarters in the Hacienda. Eléna Montero (Catherine Zeta-Jones) uses one when she frees some miners at the end of the film.

Flintlock Pocket Pistol

During the strongbox robbery, Joaquin Murietta (Victor Rivers) pulls a hidden Flintlock Pocket Pistol to threaten one of the guards that punches Alejandro (Antonio Banderas).

Colt Paterson

In addition to his sword, Captain Harrison Love (Matt Letscher) carries a Colt Paterson revolver. It is one of the early Colt Patersons because it does not have a loading lever and had to be disassembled for reloading.

Remington 1858 "Cattleman's Carbine"

Texan Army Captain Harrison Love (Matt Letscher) uses a Remington 1858 "Cattleman's Carbine" to wound Three-Fingered Jack (L.Q. Jones) and Joaquin Murrietta (Victor Rivers). It should be noted that the rifle is anachronistic, since the movie takes place in 1841, 17 years before the revolver and the rifle is based on was invented. It could be assumed to be standing in for the period-correct Colt Paterson revolving rifle, which is even rarer than the handgun variant (and there were no reproductions of the rifle being made at the time of filming) which would, accordingly, make it even more difficult to obtain for filming.

A Double Barreled Percussion Shotgun is used by Rafael Montero (Stuart Wilson).
