Handguns

Smith & Wesson Model 629 (Custom Mag-na-ported)

In "Cutting Cards" (S2E03), both Reno (Lance Henriksen) and Sam (Kevin Tighe) use what appears to be a custom Mag-na-ported Smith & Wesson Model 629 with a 2.5 inch barrel. Sam refers to it simply as a "forty-four". This appears to be the same revolver seen in the films Beverly Hills Cop and Extreme Prejudice.
