Smith & Wesson Military & Police

The flat rear of the grip allows to identify Regas' pistol as original M1911 rather than M1911A1.

Handguns in the gun rack

A number of pistols and revolvers is seen on the gun rack in gang hideout. They aren't seen clear enough for positive identification but some guesses are possible.
