Star Model B

Jerome shoots a uniformed SFPD officer who was armed with a Star Model B pistol. When Locken asks why he did that, Jerome identifies the handgun the officer carried as a "9 millimeter Star" and says that SFPD only packs "regulation Smith & Wesson .38's". During the harbor shootout, Mac (Burt Young) is seen with a bright nickel Star Model B, likely standing in for his M1911A1.
