The Enforcer is the third installment in the Dirty Harry film franchise. Clint Eastwood returns in the 1976 sequel, which finds Dirty Harry partnered with a rookie Inspector who happens to be a woman (Tyne Daly). The duo must stop an ultra-leftist terrorist organization that threatens to wreak havoc on the city. Of note is one of the earliest appearances in a film of the M72 LAW.
The following weapons were used in the film The Enforcer:
Smith & Wesson Model 29
Inspector Harry Callahan (Clint Eastwood) continues to carry as his sidearm his ".44 Magnum", the Smith & Wesson Model 29 with an 6 1/2" barrel. He comments in the film to his partner Insp. Kate Moore (Tyne Daly) that he particularly favors this gun due to penetration power, since he claims he's seen a .38 ricochet off a car windshield.

Callahan (Clint Eastwood), who uses it to destroy the tower that Maxwell makes his last stand in.
