The following weapons were used in the film Fighting Back:
Video of the assassination attempt of Pope John Paul II shows the assassin Mehmet Ali Ağca with a Browning Hi-Power.
Browning Hi-Power - 9x19mm.
While somewhat hard to see the fact that this is real video confirms it's identity as as Browning Hi-Power.
A drug store robber uses a Colt M1911A1. News footage of vigilantes show them practicing with M1911A1s.

Smith & Wesson Model 49

Smith & Wesson Model 49 - .38 Special
Similar to the Browning Hi Power above the Smith & Wesson Model 49 is hard to see but due to the fact that this is real footage confirms the weapon's identity. Fun Fact: A picture
taken seconds before the execution won the 1969 Pulitzer Prize for Spot News Photography.
John D’Angelo (Tom Skerritt) drops a Mk 2 hand grenade on Eldorado (Pete Richardson) and his friends.
Mk 2 "Pineapple" High-Explosive Fragmentation hand grenade
Some more weapons are seen in news footage but the low quality of the footage makes an ID hard to get.
