Double Impact is a 1991 action film that focuses on a pair of twins who are raised in separate countries and environments after their parents are killed in an ambush. Reunited in Hong Kong, the twins join forces to take down the man responsible for their parents' deaths and stealing their rightful inheritance. Jean-Claude Van Damme portrays both Chad, a French-raised karate instructor fond of short-shorts and the color pink, and Alex, a low level crook raised in Hong Kong and fond of cigars and leather jackets.
The following weapons were used in the film Double Impact:
Alex (Jean-Claude Van Damme) uses a Beretta 92FS during the raid on the warehouse, chambering it upside down after a dive roll into combat. He later draws his second Beretta and dual-wields them for the duration of the warehouse shootout.
Alex picks up the Beretta out of his arsenal.
Alex racks the slide of the Beretta, and the round that was already in the chamber is lost.

Desert Eagle Mark IV
A Desert Eagle MK IV fitted with a cumbersome 1980's laser sight mounted on top is used by a Triad in the drug factory shootout. Judging by the size of the bore, it was most likely a .357 Magnum version (being the most popular version in movies released in the early 1990's).
Desert Eagle MK VII - .357 Magnum. This is the most commonly seen Desert Eagle pistol in films before 1999.

Look at the size of the bore. Very small considering the actor isn't a big man either.
A M1911A1 is used by Alex in the hotel room. Chad claims it will not work, and Alex responds by firing it in excess of ten times into a window.
is held by Chad, who claims it will not work.
Alex takes up the pistol. Notice that the shorter trigger and the trigger finger relief cut indicate this is a M1911A1-style pistol, not the original M1911.
Alex shows that the pistol works.

Older Smith & Wesson Ladysmith Model 60 - .38 Special.
Alex has a Smith & Wesson Model 60 put to his cheek. Some may ask, how is the trigger back that far and a round not have gone off? Note that the hammer is cocked, and the revolver is now in single-action mode. Therefore, the trigger SHOULD be that far back, and NOT a movie mistake.
A Walther P38 used by one of the Triad members in the opening shootout.
