Handguns

Unidentified snub nose revolvers

Snub nose revolvers are seen in hands of Jo Walker (Tony Kendall), Tom Rowland (Brad Harris) and one of The Golden Serpents thugs. These revolvers aren't Arminius HW-1, widely used in previous movies, as the front sight and the extractor rod are quite different.

Unidentified revolvers

The Golden Serpents thugs use various revolvers. After Jo Walker (Tony Kendall) looses his snub nose revolver, he takes one from an incapacitated thug. This particular revolver has yellow grips and half-moon front sight, similar to the one of Colt New Service but it is positioned on the very muzzle end of the barrel, unlike the Colt.

Walther PPK

In the final scene Tom Rowland (Brad Harris) carries a pistol, tucked at his belt. The shape and size of the grip match Walther PPK.

Other Weapons

Gewehrsprenggranate 13 Rifle Grenade (mockup)

During the boat chase Jo Walker (Tony Kendall) uses a rifle grenade, fired from a revolver, to destroy the chasing boat. This weapon looks similar to the family of WW1 era German rifle grenades, especially by Gewehrsprenggranate 13 and 14.
