Carlito's Way is a 1993 gangster film that marked the second collaboration between Al Pacino and director Brian De Palma following Scarface (1983). Set in the late 1970's, the film stars Al Pacino as a gangster who is granted an early release from prison and is determined not to go back to his old criminal ways, but is pulled back in by his corrupt lawyer (Sean Penn) among others. The film was adapted from a series of novels by Edwin Torres, a New York State superior court judge and author, and a direct-to-video prequel, Carlito's Way: Rise to Power was released in 2005.
The following weapons were used in the film Carlito's Way:
While with his cousin, Carlito Brigante (Al Pacino) takes a chrome plated Auto-Ordnance M1911A1 with pearl grips from one of the thug's waistband to shoot his way out of the bad drug deal. If you look closely at Carlito's chrome 1911 in some scenes, you can see that it has a 9mm caliber barrel and magazine, which was likely used because .45 blanks don't cycle well. It also has a beveled magazine well.
During the bar shootout, Quisqueya (Rick Aviles) fires on Carlito (Al Pacino) with a Beretta 92SB-C.
Carlito Brigante (Al Pacino) uses a Beretta 92F with the finish worn off the end of the barrel as his personal weapon for the rest of the film. The use of this particular Beretta model is anachronistic as the film takes place in 1975 and the 92F wasn't produced until 1983.
Sonny Manzanero (Frank Ferrara) carries a Beretta Cheetah in the final shootout.
Vincent Taglialucci (Joseph Siravo) fires a standard Browning Hi-Power with nickel plating in the final shootout.
Colt MK IV Series 80
Pachanga (Luis Guzmán) uses a blued Series 80 as his sidearm, as do the other bouncers in Carlito's Club. He most notably uses it to threaten Lalin (Viggo Mortensen), an old acquaintance of Carlito's, and Benny Blanco from the Bronx (John Leguizamo). The appearance of this gun is an anachronism as these models weren't available until 1983, while the movie takes place in 1975.
Remington 1866 Derringer
Benny Blanco (John Leguizamo) carries a silver Derringer, an it is taken from him by Pachanga (Luis Guzmán).
Ruger Security Six
The officers on the subway carry Ruger Security Six revolvers as their sidearms. The grips are missing the Ruger emblem and look like plastic and not wood. The finish is also not glossy which leads one to believe that the gun is a painted rubber stunt prop.
Smith & Wesson Model 10 Snub Nose
One of the thugs that Carlito shoots at the bad drug deal manages to fire his nickel Smith & Wesson Model 10 snub. One of the Italians uses one in the final shootout as well.
Smith & Wesson Model 36
David Kleinfeld (Sean Penn) uses a nickel-plated Smith & Wesson Model 36 with pearl grips as his personal weapon. Vincent Taglialucci (Joseph Siravo) also uses a suppressed version and Pete Amadesso (Richard Foronjy), one of Vincent's friends, also uses one in the final shootout.
Benny Blanco (John Leguizamo) uses an unknown suppressed pistol at the end of the film.
