Shaft in Africa
Shaft in Africa is the 1973 sequel in the Shaft film series. Directed by John Guillermin, the sequel finds John Shaft (Richard Roundtree) traveling undercover to Africa to take down a criminal smuggling ring. Roundtree would then reprise his role nearly three decades later, co-starring alongside Samuel L. Jackson in the 2000 sequel and then in the 2019 feature film.
The following weapons were used in the film Shaft in Africa:
While in Africa, one of Amafi's (Frank Finlay) assassins, Marcel Sassari (Spiros Focás) fires at John Shaft (Richard Roundtree) with a Luger P08, fitted with a small suppressor. After Sassari is killed, Shaft takes the pistol and uses it for the rest of the movie.
There seems to be quite a large sound effects problem throughout the movie. The Luger is never seen without the suppressor, but when Sassari fires at Shaft, the gun's sound effects are of an unsuppressed weapon. Later, when killing another assassin on the boat in the Red Sea, the gunshots are silenced. Then, for the rest of the film, the gunshots are back to unsuppressed.
One of Amafi's men in the Paris apartment fires at Shaft with a Star Z45 submachine gun. After killing him, Shaft takes it and uses it when facing off with Amafi.
The M1911A1 is used by many of Amafi's assassins and thugs throughout the film.
