Cleopatra Jones and the Casino of Gold is a 1975 blaxploitation movie about Cleopatra Jones (Tamara Dobson), an anti-narcotics agent who travels to Hong Kong to investigate the kidnapping of two fellow agents Matthew and Melvin by druglord Dragon Lady (Stella Stevens).

In her investigation, which takes her from the junks of Hong Kong to the casinos of Macao, she is assisted by Mi Ling Fong (Ni Tien) and members of her Hong Kong Tactical Squad 7. This movie is the sequel to the 1973 movie Cleopatra Jones.

M1911A1

In a few scenes, M1911A1 style pistols with different barrel lengths and finishes can be seen. They are too close for identification but the M1911A1 heritage is undeniable.

Smith & Wesson Model 38/49

A bodyguard of Dragon Lady pulls a Smith & Wesson Model 38/49 on Cleopatra Jones. It is impossible to verify if it’s the aluminium Model 38 or the steel Model 49 hence Model 38/49.

Unidentified Revolver

Soon Da Chen (Shen Chan) carries an unidentified snub-nose revolver as he is being chased by members of Hong Kong Tactical Squad 7.

Miscellaneous

Dragon Reducer

Mi Ling Fong takes a huge grenade from her tiny handbag that she refers to as her 'Dragon Reducer'. It’s obviously a prop inspired by the German Model 24 Stielhandgranate.

Just like the M24, the fuse of the Dragon Reducer is ignited by yanking a string from the bottom.
