***He was listening to the cylinder stop, to check how well it would lock up the cylinder when firing, and not end up dropping the hammer between chambers, or slightly out of line with the barrel. Then again, these guns are sometimes anachronistic as they switch between period-correct cap and ball guns (not at all waterproof) and cartridge converted guns (about 5 years or so early), which have some chance to resist water.

** If that was the case, then why would Manco mention that he was looking to retire in ''For A Few Dollars More''?

** At the last hanging, the announcer says the condemned spontaneously confessed, and he's pretty clearly embellishing by this point: --> ...murder, assaulting a justice of the peace, raping a virgin of the white race, statutory rape of a minor of the black race, derailing a train....robbing an unknown number of post offices....selling fugitive slaves....and misrepresenting himself as a Mexican general....

**It is possible that Tuco's old gun was also custom-made from parts of different guns, and he made the new one to be just like the old one, hence the same sound.

***One possibility is pure sadism...he thinks he's holding all the cards, and he likes the idea of forcing them to dig up the money, then die at his hands, humiliated and knowing they were beaten.

** To the last question - Blondie looks genuinely surprised when Angel Eyes shows up and tosses the shovel...and at that point Angel Eyes has the drop on him. So I don't think Blondie really has a chance to shoot him before the duel. On the other hand, since Angel Eyes saw them at the gravesite (which he assumed was the right one), I wonder why ''he'' didn't just shoot them in the back, or better still pick them off at long range with the rifle he was carrying on his horse.

* "Every gun makes its own tune." Blondie heard Tuco's gun in the desert (when he shot his hat and canteen), but before Blondie utters this line, they've been captured and disarmed. Tuco escapes the train with no gun at hand except Wallace's sidearm (which doesn't work when he tries to shoot off his handcuffs). So...leaving aside whether it's realistic for Blondie to recognize an individual gun...how did Tuco end up with his old gun?
