Single Action Army-style revolver

A Single Action Army-style revolver is used by commandos (obviously, this is a one gun, passing from hand to hand). It has missing ejector rod, and it apparently is some cheap copy, like the Röhm RG-66.

Submachine Guns

Thompson M1A1 (Replica)

The M1A1 Thompson submachine guns is used by members of the police and members of the ecologist group during US consul crisis. They are seems by replicas, made mainly of rubber, and showing moving bolts and powder smoke (which, alas, comes not from the barrel, but from somewhere from the receiver). It's also used by the SWAT team during their new mission in New Guinea. It's depicted without or with a 1928 rear sight but never with a M1A1's. One model with a vertical foregrip seems to be the trademark weapon of Zantoro, but due to continuity error, this weapon is wore by others members of the team.
