Smith & Wesson 59 (nickel)

McCarthy (Brian Dennehy) is also seen with what appears to be a nickel Smith & Wesson 59 towards the end of the film. The weapon appears to have a frame bulge more to the rear of the frame, indicating an older 59 as opposed to a 459/559 (which have frame bulges more slightly forward). The pistol also has low-profile fixed sights, further supporting it as a 59 (2nd Generation S&W autos generally have larger adjustable sights). The gun was previously listed as a Smith & Wesson 5904, which is not possible since the movie was released in 1986, while the 5904 and most other '3rd Generation' S&W autos were made in 1989 and later.
