The Challenge (La sfida) is a 1958 Italian-Spanish B&W crime drama directed by Francesco Rosi. A young, aspiring Neapolitan criminal Vito Polara (José Suárez) tries to carve out his own piece of the pie on vegetable market, controlled by local Camorra. Vito manages to make a deal with Camorra boss but then his impudence and naivety leads him to bitter end.

The following weapons were used in the film The Challenge (La sfida):

Bernardelli 7.65

When Vito Polara (José Suárez) comes to local Camorra boss Salvatore Ajello (Pasquale Cennamo), the latter, being insulted by Vito, draws a pistol that appears to be a Bernardelli 7.65 model. Salvatore's brother Ferdinando (José Jaspe) prevents the shot, striking the pistol from Salvatore's hand, and then Vito picks up the pistol.
