FN Hi-Power

Along with the Luger P08, Sakharine's henchmen and Sakharine (Daniel Craig) himself also wield FN Hi-Powers with black grips. During the later portion of the movie, Tintin takes one from one of Sakharine's henchmen and notably uses it to disable Sakharine's henchmen's plane.

The first version of the classic pistol, developed by John Browning and adopted by Belgium in 1935, the FN P-35 - 9x19mm. During World War II, the Germans would occupy the Belgian firearms factories and continued to produce this gun, still called the P-35, but with Waffenamt stamps. The Design would be adopted by other countries and manufactured abroad with the generic designation simply as the "Browning High Power".

If there was only one round left in the gun, the magazine would be empty because the round would have been loaded after the last shot. The gun he is holding actually has two rounds in it.)
The adjustable rear sight is very clearly seen here.
