Revolvers

EKOL Viper

Early in the film, Dwight (Macon Blair) steals a gun case from a parked truck, only to discover the revolver inside is protected by a trigger lock. He attempts to remove the trigger lock by hitting it repeatedly with a crowbar, which, predictably, is ineffective and destroys the gun. For this scene the filmmakers used an EKOL Viper, a blank-fire only weapon, rather than destroy an actual working firearm.

Pistols

Ruger Mk III

One of the weapons that Ben (Devin Ratray) offers to Dwight (Macon Blair) is a Ruger Mk III, which he describes as firing "its own nine millimetre cartridge" and instructs Dwight that it must be loaded with stripper clips. Both of these statements are incorrect, although it is possible that the scene was written with another firearm in mind. Later in the film, Ben makes mention of giving Dwight a "Steyr" as a secondary weapon, meaning perhaps that the filmmakers had confused the Ruger with a similar-looking but older firearm that does indeed load from stripper clips.

Rossi Circuit Judge
