Marshall Cowan and the mercenary Miller are both separately hunting the outlaw Catlow. During the Civil War both Cowan and the always smiling Catlow were comrades. Catlow helps Cowan, when he is wounded in the right leg by an arrow from the Apaches, despite Cowan hunting him. Catlow escapes with help of his gang. Catlow then robs a Mexican gold shipment, worth $ 2,000,000. Catlow flees with the stolen gold through the dangerous territory of the Apaches who, besides Miller, Cowan and the Mexican cavalry, are hunting for him and his gang of outlaws.
The Mexican cavalry wanted him murdered. The Apache nation wanted him massacred. Texas ranchers wanted him mangled and his only hope was a Marshal, who wanted him hanged.

They are using Winchester Model 1892 and/or 1894 rifles, which are recognizably different from the historically accurate Model 1873.

Since the 1970s, historically accurate reproductions of the earlier firearms have been available from Italian manufacturers such as Uberti, Pedersoli, and Chiappa. See more
Well, it don't seem likely that somebody'd just go off and leave a pile of gold lying around a cave. Then again, there'd be no reason to hide it there unless maybe that gold was stolen in the first place.
Your logic is impeccable.
Has the Mexican government lost any gold lately?
To the contrary.
Well, back in '62, our Confederate Army did. Our supply base at Santa Fe was attacked by the Yankees. They made off with a fresh shipment from the gold fields. About 2 million dollars worth. Ha ha, now ...
