Infernal Affairs (2002)

Infernal Affairs is a 2002 Hong Kong crime thriller that focuses on two Hong Kong policemen, one who was recruited to go deep undercover into the Triad organization and one who was recruited by the Triads to be a mole in the police force. The film stars Tony Leung Chiu Wai, Andy Lau, Anthony Wong Chau-Sang, Eric Tsang, and Gordon Lam Ka-tung. It would spawn two sequels: Infernal Affairs II and Infernal Affairs III. The film was subsequently remade by Martin Scorsese as the 2006 film The Departed.

Colt Detective Special

A Colt Detective Special revolver is the standard sidearm of the HKPF Crime and Security Department officers in the film. Near the end of the film, Inspector Lau Kin-Ming (Andy Lau) is armed with this revolver before being disarmed by Chan Wing-Yan (Tony Leung Chiu Wai).

Smith & Wesson Model 10

Smith & Wesson Model 10 revolvers are the standard sidearm of uniformed officers of the Hong Kong Police Force. The weapon is seen at the end of the film when Inspector Lau Kin-Ming (Andy Lau) leaves the elevator to meeting uniformed officers. It seems as though some officers carry the standard version of the Model 10 while others are equipped with the heavy barreled variant.

Glock 17

Chan Wing-Yan (Tony Leung Chiu Wai) carries a second generation Glock 17 in the final scene when he holds Inspector Lau Kin-Ming (Andy Lau) hostage on the rooftop. A well known goof to the audience is when Chan draws his Glock on Lau, it clearly has no magazine, but in later shots his Glock has a magazine. The Glock 17 was the one of the standard sidearms of HKPF officers in the criminal investigation units at that time the film was released.

Taurus PT92

Taurus PT92 pistols are used by Triad gangsters throughout the film, notably in the shootout immediately following Superintendent Wong Chi-Shing's (Anthony Wong Chau-Sang) murder. In reality, the Triads use Tokarev TT-33 pistols instead, rather than the Taurus.

Lee-Enfield No.1 Mk.III*

A young Lau Kin-Ming (Edison Chen) is seen drilling with the Lee-Enfield No.1 Mk.III* during the montage of his training as a cadet.

Lee-Enfield No.1 Mk.III* - .303 British. This was the main battle rifle of British and Commonwealth forces during the First World War, introduced in 1907, it has seen action throughout the 20th century. It would make sense for it to be in Hong Kong, a former British Colony.
