Starsky & Hutch is the 2004 feature film adaptation of the 1970's television series of the same name. The film is a comedic take on the series and stars Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson in the roles originated by Paul Michael Glaser and David Soul.
The following guns were used in the 2004 film Starsky & Hutch:
Rock Island Armory Commander
David Starsky (Ben Stiller) carries a Rock Island Armory Commander with a stainless bushingless barrel, a stainless guide rod, ambidextrous safety, a beavertail grip safety and Colt Series 70 checkered grips (some of these features were not available in 1975, when the film takes place) as his sidearm in the film.
Starsky fires his RIA Commander at a running suspect. The fleeing perpetrator doesn't have a visible weapon, therefore, (in real life) Starsky would be reprimanded for firing on an unarmed suspect.

) iguana, his RIA Commander stovepipes on him.

Ken "Hutch" Hutchinson (Owen Wilson) is seen using a 4" Colt Python at the beginning of the film while undercover as a robber.

Hutch using a 4" Colt Python could me a reference to the Dirty Harry film Magnum Force, which David Soul's (who played the original Hutch in the television series) character, a vigilante cop uses a 4" Python; Magnum Force was responsible for landing Soul the role of Hutch for the television series Starsky and Hutch. For the rest of the film, Hutch uses a 6" Colt Python as his sidearm.
