Pistols

M1911

In "Ma Barker and Her Boys" (1.02), bank robber Fred Barker (Joe Di Reda) carries two original M1911 pistols, differentiated from the later M1911A1 model by the flat mainspring housing. In "The George 'Bugs' Moran Story" (1.03), mob enforcer George "Blackie" Anderson (Kem Dibbs) carries an M1911 in a shoulder holster.

A Colt Official Police is also prominently featured in the show's opening credits. Several Official Police revolvers are also seen in the Barker gang's arsenal in "Ma Barker and Her Boys" (1.02), one of which was handled by Lloyd Barker (Adam Williams) when he hides during Ness' first visit to the Barker home.

Submachine Guns

M1921AC Thompson

Gangsters and lawmen alike carry the M1921AC Thompson submachine gun. Frank Nitti (Bruce Gordon) uses one to eliminate his rivals in "The Empty Chair" (1.01). Several are part of the Barker gang's arsenal in "Ma Barker and Her Boys" (1.02), used by Ma Barker (Claire Trevor), Lloyd Barker (Adam Williams), and Fred Barker (Joe Di Reda).

Rifles

Winchester Model 1892 rifles are often seen in the hands of law enforcement, including the Florida state troopers accompanying The Untouchables in "Ma Barker and Her Boys" (1.02).

M1903 Springfield

For some reason, the funeral procession in for corrupt Chicago reporter Jake Lingle includes U.S. Navy servicemen carrying ceremonial M1903 Springfield rifles in "The Jake Lingle Killing" (1.04). It's worth noting that the real Lingle had no military history, and the show makes no mention of any military history for his fictional counterpart.

Shotguns

Winchester Model 1897 Riot

The Untouchables - especially Agent William Youngfellow (Abel Fernandez) - often use Winchester Model 1897 shotguns with riot-length barrels during their many raids. Lloyd Barker (Adam Williams) hands one off to Fred Barker (Joe Di Reda) in "Ma Barker and Her Boys" (1.02).

One of the mob hoods who corners Jack Zuta in Wisconsin in "The Jake Lingle Killing" (1.04) carries a hammerless double-barreled shotgun with a sawed-down barrel. In the same episode, a mob bootlegger appropriately riding "shotgun" carries a double-barreled shotgun for a late night liquor run.
