A Fistful of Dollars / Re:Help with nagging question?

I really appreciate the help!  BUT, moviemistakes has got it wrong, because a gatlin cranks, and a vickers has but one barrel.  (Ramon uses thumb triggers and there's the pepper box barrels... )  I can't help but think that it was some kind of "hybrid" thrown together with what was available.  (i.e., they used a WWI machine gun, put an ersatz "pepper box" case around the barrel to make it look like a maxim, and said "roll 'em.")  If any light ever sheds for sure on this, I'd like to know.  Thanks for turning me on to "movie mistakes!"  I'll have to bookmark it right next to the IMDB.

     I've been spending quite some time on the net trying to find out exactly what kind of machine gun Ramone Rojo was using to massacre all those Mexican soldiers.  It's not a "Vickers" or "Maxim" or "Gatlin" or any other kind that I can find.  After an exhasting search, this site rang the cherries, and here I am.  The machine gun has a "pepper box" style barrel, it's belt fed, and it's a true automatic, in that he didn't have to crank it.  The hand grips were twin, with a U-shaped (from the top view) design.   What got this started, was that I was watching the DVD again today, and I noticed that Ramone's machine gun couldn't be a Gatlin, because it didn't crank.  It looked rather like a WWI Vickers gun, and therefore, a glaring anacronism, but it's not a Vickers either.  WHAT THE DEVIL IS IT?  If you can help, either email me privately, or post it here.  Thanks in advance for any light you may be able to shed on this.
