Plan C is a 2012 Dutch crime drama about Ronald Plasmeyer (Ruben van der Meer), a small-time Amsterdam detective, struggling with financial problems because of his gambling habit. When he’s threatened to pay his debts, he comes up with a plan that will solve all his problems.
Ronald enlists petty criminals Bram (Ton Kas) and Gerrit (René van 't Hof) to rob an illegal poker tournament he's taking part in, providing him with a perfect alibi. Quick, simple and non-violent; the plan is fool proof... until people start getting killed during the robbery.
In addition, Bram and Gerrit take off with the money, leaving him empty handed. To make matters worse Ronald's colleagues in the police force begin to suspect him of the robbery, setting the stage for a nerve-racking game of cat and mouse.
The following weapons can be seen in the movie Plan C:
Star Model B
Bram (Ton Kas) brings along a Star Model B, probably standing in for a Colt M1911A1, for Gerrit (René van 't Hof) to use during the robbery. He refers to it as ‘an old warhorse’ and interestingly it jams on several crucial occasions. In the final scene, it is also used by Ronald (Ruben van der Meer).

The Walther P5, the proper side-arm of Dutch police at the time, can be seen carried by police officers as well as by Ronald in the final scene at the hotel.

In one of the final scenes, Ronald carefully moves around the hotel to find his partners with his P5 at the ready.
Ronald makes a shocking discovery as he enters the room his friends were hiding in, note the typical front section of the P5.
In addition to the M1911A1, Bram brings an Intratec TEC-DC9 to the robbery of the illegal poker tournament. He uses it briefly during the robbery but ditches the gun at the crime scene.

Bram firing the TEC-DC9 during the robbery. Note that the ejected cartridges seem to be too large, probably a sign that they have been added in post-production.
During the police investigation of the crime scene, the TEC-DC9 can be seen on the floor among other marked pieces of evidence.
