Blastfighter is a 1984 Italian action movie directed by Lamberto Bava (credited as John Old, Jr.). The main character, Jake "Tiger" Sharp (Michael Sopkiw) is a former policeman. When his wife is murdered, Sharp himself killed the murderer and was sentenced to many years in prison. Now he is ready to wreak vengeance with his "Blastfighter" - SPAS-12 shotgun.
The following weapons are seen in the movie Blastfighter:
Colt Trooper Mk III
During the flashback scene Sharp (Michael Sopkiw) uses Colt Trooper Mk III revolver to kill the murderer (Giancarlo Prati). In the final scene Sharp again uses this revolver.

Sharp opens his revolver in the final scene.
The murderer (Giancarlo Prati) is briefly seen with a pistol in hand. It has the characteristic shape of Beretta pistols.
Sharp's main weapon during the movie is "Blastfighter" - Franchi SPAS-12 with a telescopic sight and night vision device. In the opening scene this combat shotgun is described as "weapon of future", capable to fire not only standard buckshot, but also flechette rounds, high explosive rounds, rifle grenades and many other types of projectiles. In 1984 when the movie was filmed SPAS-12 really had a futuristic view. For some reason the English poster shows a different shotgun; the SPAS-12 can be seen on French poster (see Trivia section on the page).
