I know it already says that the .50 is a 357, but also another way of finding out is that .50s fire 7 rounds where as in the film Bullet tooth tony fires 8 in every mag.
- The .357 holds a 9-shot mag. Also, he fires 10 shots in the scene where he's in the hallway shooting at Boris, which means 9 + 1 in the chamber. Only way they could have accomplished that is with the .357 model. -MT2008
- BTW, I'm full of crap...since I made that original post, I counted again, and he only fires 8 shots. It's probably the .44 Magnum model that he uses. I find it interesting that he fires the gun empty (on camera) without the slide locking back...I'm guessing that the movie's armorer must have deliberately modified the followers on the magazine so that it wouldn't push up the slide release when empty. -MT2008 16:54, 15 May 2010 (UTC)
- The odd part is that when looked at closely, it really does say Desert Eagle .50 on the side of it. -Excalibur
- That just means that the armorer/gunsmith stamped it onto the slide. The stamp they used is not the factory stamp; on a .50 AE Desert Eagle Mark XIX, it says ".50 AE" only on the left side of the gun (we see it on the right in the movie), and it's much tinier than that. -MT2008 23:48, 13 October 2010 (UTC)
The gun used by the Asian guy to shoot Bullet Tooth Tony looks like a Walther PPK to me.184.108.40.206 23:01, 31 December 2009 (UTC)
You guys DO REALIZE that the movie is titled "Snatch." with a period at the end, not "Snatch", right? It's a weird thing that Ritchie did, but that IS the official name of the movie. So I am changing it per IMFDB protocols. MoviePropMaster2008 05:09, 14 October 2010 (UTC)
Not to argue...but why is it that the period is not present on any of the movie covers or on the title page of the DVD. Did Guy Ritchie do a interview where he released this little movie trivia.--Spades of Columbia 14:45, 14 October 2010 (UTC)
Is IMDb based out of Denmark because that is the only place that the period was used in the title...everywhere else including the UK, Japan, and USA all use the title without the period.--Spades of Columbia 15:21, 14 October 2010 (UTC)
- IMDB is the bible for movie titles. Since there is NO USA RELEASE title that omits the period on the 'aka' listing, then the original title is the one we use. In the rules the U.S. release title takes precedence, but in this case, I'm not sure the artwork is much help. I've always known it as SNATCH and my DVD cover says SNATCH, In this case, we should defer to the official title. It's a minor point and if people become outraged, we can change it back, but it will have to come to a vote. Right now, this title is the only 'official' title sans a recognized American Release one.

Not too cause argument or be an arse, but I just wanted to point out that some places in the UK do market Snatch with the full stop on the end (or period to the American members of this site). Was glad too see that this page had the correct title :) - Fixer
- "IMDB is the bible for movie titles."
- I'm calling b.s. on that, because IMDb still thinks Alien: Resurrection has a colon in the title, when nowhere was it released like that. It's simply Alien Resurrection, no colon. So that site's hardly gospel.--Leigh Burne (talk) 07:50, 10 February 2016 (EST)
Heckler & Koch P7
"the prop itself, however, is a real P7 adapted to blank-fire, as there is no commercially-available blank replica of the P7 in real life." false! http://www.co2air.de/wbb3/index.php?page=Thread&threadID=19830
- Hmmm, I didn't know, thanks for that info. I think when I wrote that, I actually searched for P7 blank replicas but found none. That being said, the prop used in this movie is still a real P7, not one of those replicas. Its bore is much wider than that of the replica seen in that link. -MT2008 22:09, 3 November 2010 (UTC)
- Interesting, however that UMAREX Blank firing P7 still has a blocked barrel so it it just like the other 8mm blank firing theatrical guns that we have listed here. It just isn't imported into the U.S. The Gun used in the FILM however, is a live firing P7 that fires movie blanks. Also it is IMPOSSIBLE for a blank from a pistol to shatter a car window just by the blast. A .50 cal blank from the muzzle of an M2HB? Probably.... At any rate. The blank firing guns sold in Europe have blocked barrels and are pretty easily identifiable by looking down the barrel. Tony doesn't have to read the word "Replica" on the slide (and he has pretty damned good eyesight to be able to anyway... ;) MoviePropMaster2008
I was hoping we could make a page for Ade, who plays Tyrone in this film. He is in Formula 51 and Casino Royale, but I believe this is the only film he actually wields a firearm in. Would it just be counter productive at that point, because I've seen pages for actors with oly 1 film listed. --Glockness Monster 01:13, 24 July 2011 (CDT)
6 shot 38?
I know this is supposed to be a 681, but doesn't this shot make the revolver look like a .22 revolver? And I could swear that that cylinder holds MORE than 6 rounds, 7 or 8 maybe? Thoughts? MPM
