Hoi and 'moi' were watching: "The Good, the Bad and the Ugly"; while during their 'A.C.W.'--"Bridge Battle", there is some 'Gun' shown of which had a tall, 'Cylindrical'-ammo 'clip'/'container', so I'm wondering just which-if any-had this? It seemed the lower, 'Gun'-portion may have consisted as from a 'Gatling'-type-(actuator lever displayed ), so a "revolving"/"rotating" method is being used. Theirs appeared with being of a 'Lewis Machine Gun'--"ammo cartridges"--type then comprising for 3--4 times as much, but, was there anything with this?

I don't remember seeing that exact scene (have not watched the film in  over 20 years or so) but you might be referring to the Broadwell Drum, used on later Gatling guns and probably ahistoric to the film's time period.



The drum in the video is 240 rounds but the original design for the drum held 400, thus it may have been a bit taller than the one shown.

Hoi and thanks for this 'Video', as it appears on being 'apropos', if being slightly smaller overall. I'd watched plenty of them "in action" and at no time did there ever was shown such an 'Ammo'-container.

Yeah, that drum sure looks like the aforementioned taller 400 round version of the Broadwell drum. As I said, It was developed after the war and thus an anachronism.

Hoi with "oh noes"!, as WHERE/WHEN had 'Injun-Annie Jones'n' obtained that 'R.P.G.' he brandished in the 'Movie'?!?

I mean, it's a movie.  Could totally be made-up, like Ah-nold's ammo belt hanging out of his M63 Stoner in Commando

For the record, those are not called clips. They are magazines.

I’ve spent half my life’s earning on wargames, women, and drink. The rest I wasted.

True. Movies often confuse the two as in 'I fired a whole clip into that monster and it's still coming at us!!' the commando screamed as he tried to reloaded submachine gun.

Hoi, as 'moi' had "heard" that the 'Monster' has a 'Hook' for a FOOT, or whatever its 'podiextrusionappendigeas' were denoted about! At least ONE, of such? Nor any 'Triskaidekarachnidaphobia'!

I did try hard, but I have to say that I found that to be totally incomprehensible. ???

Truthfully, no. It was just one instance of many, but rated quite highly on the 'Incomprehensible' scale.
