Like A Dragon (JP: 龍が如く 劇場版 Ryū ga Gotoku Gekijōban) is a 2007 live-action spinoff of the Yakuza videogame series. The plot is loosely based on the original Yakuza game, in the title's staple location of Kamurocho (a fictional version of Tokyo's Kabukicho red-light district). However, whilst the game is set over the course of several days in December, this film is set on one hot summer night.


The following weapons were used in the film Like A Dragon:

Contents


Handguns

.38 Special revolver

As can be seen in the following screenshot, there are a couple of dead yakuza men with what appear to be .38 Special revolvers, likely either Colt Detective Specials or Nambu Model 60s.

Shotguns

Franchi SPAS-12

The Franchi SPAS-12 shotgun is seen in the hands of Kazuma Kiryu (Kazuki Kitamura). The sheen from this weapon suggests that it is a plastic airsoft derivative, likely the Tokyo Marui Spring version.

Winchester Model 1200/1300

Goro Majima (Goro Kishitani) uses the Winchester Model 1200/1300 in various parts of the film. A wooden foregrip in the style of that found on the Remington Model 870 looks to have been retrofitted onto the weapon. Also, the barrel appears to have been shortened slightly. Again, this appears to be a plastic airsoft gun.
