Battle Royale (Original title: バトル・ロワイアル - read as: Batoru rowaiaru) is the 2000 Japanese feature film adaptation of the controversial 1999 Japanese novel of the same name by Koushun Takami, who later published a 3,000 page illustrated manga version of the story. The premise of the film revolves around "The Program", a government-sponsored event which forces randomly selected junior high school students who are armed with various weapons to eliminate each other until there is one remaining survivor. The film would spawn a 2003 sequel: Battle Royale II: Requiem.

The following weapons were used in the film Battle Royale:



Smith & Wesson Model 19

Boy #20 - Kyoichi Motobuchi (Ryou Nitta) is given a Smith & Wesson Model 19 revolver. Upon his demise, it is claimed and used by Boy #5 - Kawada (Tarô Yamamoto). He later gives it to Boy #15 - Shuya Nanahara (Tatsuya Fujiwara) as a gesture of good faith.

During the lighthouse shootout Girl #19 - Chisato Matsui (Asami Kanai) grabs a Smith & Wesson Model 19 Snub Nose revolver with rubber grips off of a table holding several of the student's weapons. The weapon is likely intended to be Girl #2 - Yukie Utsumi (Eri Ishikawa)'s weapon. After the shootout, Shuya retrieves the Model 19 and gives it to Kawada (Tarô Yamamoto).
