The Night Before Christmas (Botte di natale) is a 1994 Western comedy directed by Terence Hill, starring Bud Spencer and Terence Hill himself. The film was also released as Troublemakers and was the last movie starring the duo.

The following weapons were used in the film The Night Before Christmas:


Colt Single Action Army

At the beginning of the film, a group of cowboys use the Single Action Army in both Civilian, Artillery and Cavalry models. Moses (Bud Spencer) and Sheriff Fox (Ron Carey) carry Cavalry SAAs throughout the movie while numerous other characters, including Sam Stone (Boots Southerland), Deputy Joe (Fritz Sperberg), and Stone's second-in-command Dodge (Neil Summers), prefer short models.
