Dylan Dog: Dead of Night
Dylan Dog: Dead of Night is a 2011 independent horror-comedy starring Brandon Routh, Sam Huntington, Anita Briem, Taye Diggs and Peter Stormare. It is loosely based on the long-running Italian comic book series Dylan Dog by Tiziano Sclavi. Filming was done on location in New Orleans, a change from the comic book setting of London.
The following guns were used in the film Dylan Dog: Dead of Night:
Webley Mk VI
Dylan Dog (Brandon Routh) uses a .455 Webley Mk VI top break revolver as his primary weapon in the film. He has special wood-tipped rounds for use against vampires, "dum-dums" against zombies, and presumably silver-tipped rounds for werewolves. (He is shown hurting a werewolf with a silver knuckle-duster.)

Dylan pulls out his Webley to prove a point to Marcus. Even though Brandon Routh is 6'3", the Webley still looks massive in his hands.

Kovrov Arsenal flare pistol
During Dylan's assault on the Corpus House, he uses a variety of break action flare guns, including a Russian Kovrov Arsenal flare pistol. He doesn't bother reloading, just tossing them away with his assistant Marcus (Sam Huntington) caddying preloaded flare pistols for him.

Dylan Dog finishes the assault by firing three flares with a Milkor MGL grenade launcher. The grenade launcher does not appear to have a stock attached.

In the film itself, it's too dark to get a good look at any weapons, as everything was backlit. This screencap has been digitally enhanced.

Smith & Wesson 5906
Dylan wakes up in the beginning of the film with an angry husband (Douglas M. Griffin) pointing a Smith & Wesson 5906 at him. Dylan disarms him and unloads it.
Vincent's Smith & Wesson 5906 from Collateral - 9x19mm. This is a screen used gun. Note the late model 5906 pistols have the rounded trigger guard.

Dylan empties racks the slide, presumably to empty the chamber. But he does so before taking out the magazine, so there's still a round in the chamber.
Type 56 Carbine
A Type 56 Carbine can be seen in Dylan's ammo stash. He never uses it however.
Chinese Type 56 Carbine aka the Chinese SKS rifle - 7.62x39mm. The Chinese SKS has a stamped receiver and a spike bayonet (aka a "pig sticker") much like one of their AK-47 copies - the Type 56 assault rifle. This version, like many imported SKS rifles, have the infamous 'orange cratewood' stocks, probably the lowest quality wood in any mass produced rifle, save for the last ditch Arisaka Type 99 rifles at the end of WW2. Many SKS rifles during the Vietnam War were issued with reddish plastic stocks, because of the incidents of 'wood rot' in the humid SE Asian jungles.
The Type 56 Carbine is on the right. Note the longer, shallower cut-out for the long spike bayonet.
