These revolvers are used by The Oil Prince (Harald Leipnitz), his second-in-command Butler (Dusan Janicijevic) and other henchmen, and also by the leader of the settlers Bill Campbell (Walter Barnes).

Several of Prince's henchmen are armed with Colt M1917 revolvers.

The double barreled rifle, named "The Silver Gun", is Winnetou's (Pierre Brice) signature weapon.
