I identified this revolver as Smith & Wesson Model 36 but now I'm not sure that it's correct. The shape of the front sight, the frame and the ejector rod differs from S&W Model 36. I have a guess that it can be some European version of S&W snub nose, but I haven't found any photo of Italian, Spanish or German revolver that matches the revolver used in movie. Thanks in advance for any help. Greg-Z (talk) 04:08, 16 May 2013 (EDT)

The same problem is with snub nose revolvers in another 1970s Italian movie Silent Action:

According to the movie, the revolver on the first and second screenshots is the same weapon, but they differ. The first one looks like the revolver from Almost Human, in S&W style, and the second one has a unshrouded ejector rod. It isn't seen if the second revolver is 5- or 6-shot.

The bottom one looks like a first gen DS to me. --Funkychinaman (talk) 13:58, 16 May 2013 (EDT)
I also have a guess that it is a Bernardelli Nuovo Modelo with 2" or 2.5" in .32 (here is another view of this revolver, at Bernardelli web site). And this Bernardelli in .22LR resembles the other screen revolver (only I cannot say if it is 5-shot). Greg-Z (talk) 14:36, 16 May 2013 (EDT)
