Handguns

Arminius HW-1

As in other movies, Jo Walker's (Tony Kendall) personal sidearm is an Arminius HW-1 blank firing revolver. HW-1s are also seen in hands of Capt. Tom Rowland (Brad Harris), Arthur Tracy (Franco Fantasia), Elizabeth Tracy (Erika Blanc), and several of Anthony's henchmen.

Unidentified revolver (possibly a toy gun)

Smoky (a cameo of film director Gianfranco Parolini, credited as Frank Kramer) uses a revolver in several scenes. It distantly resembles K-frame or N-frame S&W revolvers but upon a closer examination appears to be rather some blank firing or even a toy gun. Same lookling revolvers are used by some of Anthony's henchmen during the shootout on the construction yard and by a police officer in the opening scene.

Unidentified pistol (possibly a toy gun)

Anthony (Siegfried Rauch) carries a pistol that distantly resembles a Luger P08. When firing, it produces only some light grey smoke but no muzzle flash, and no part of the pistol ever moves, so it's possibly a toy gun. Same looking pistol is also used by one of Anthony's henchmen during the shootout on the construction yard.
