City on Fire (1987)

City on Fire is a 1987 Hong Kong crime drama directed by Ringo Lam and stars Chow Yun-Fat and Danny Lee as members of a high-end robbery crew who begin to suspect that one of them might be an undercover cop. Some have commented that particular scenes and themes in this film bear a striking resemblance to Quentin Tarantino's Reservoir Dogs released four years later. Chow Yun-Fat and Danny Lee would later co-star in John Woo's The Killer.


The following weapons were used in the film City on Fire:

Colt Detective Special

When Ko Chow promises three more "Smith & Wessons" to Fu during the first gun deal, he returns with two Colt Detective Specials and one more Smith & Wesson Model 10. Despite the revolvers being Colts, Ko Chow still refers to them as "same as the first one".

Smith & Wesson Model 10HB

A Smith & Wesson Model 10HB with a 3" barrel is the first Smith & Wesson sold by Ko Chow (Chow Yun-Fat) during the first gun deal. Later, Fu (Danny Lee) takes it and pulls it on Ko Chow in the cemetery. Another one along with two Colt Detective Specials are seen in the second gun deal.

Smith & Wesson Model 10 Snub Nose

During the jewelry heist, a snub-nosed Smith & Wesson Model 10 is used by one of the robbers to gun down an employee when the alarm sounds. This is presumably one of the "Smith & Wesson" Colt Detective Specials sold by Ko Chow in the second gun deal, but it now becomes a real Smith & Wesson.
