Fort Apache, The Bronx
Fort Apache, The Bronx is a 1981 drama starring Paul Newman as an NYPD cop who has to deal with working in one of the toughest precincts in the city. The film's title is not only a homage to the 1948 John Wayne film Fort Apache, but also was the nickname given to the actual 41st Precinct in the early 1970s.
The following weapons were used in the film Fort Apache, The Bronx:
Smith & Wesson Model 10
The Smith & Wesson Model 10 was the standard service revolver of the NYPD for many years and is used by several officers in the film, including Officer Murphy (Paul Newman) and Officer Morgan (Danny Aiello), who uses the version with the light, tapered barrel.
Colt Detective Special
When Murphy (Paul Newman) and his partner Corelli (Ken Wahl) work a plainclothes assignment, they carry a Colt Detective Special (pre-1972 version) with an exposed ejector rod.
Colt Pocket Positive
A nickel Colt Pocket Positive snub-nose revolver is used by Charlotte (Pam Grier) at the beginning of the film and appears to be the same gun pulled by a drug dealer during the hospital hostage situation.
Officer Finley (John Aquino) is briefly seen racking the slide of an M1911A1 that he says he's carrying as a backup weapon after hearing that two officers were shot.
Officers at the precinct armed with the M1 Carbine are seen taking positions atop the roof of the precinct when protesters assemble outside.
Federal M201-Z Grenade Launcher
Officers disperse the crowd with tear gas fired from Federal M201-Z Grenade Launchers during the protest in front of the precinct.
