Diamonds Are Forever
Diamonds Are Forever is the 7th installment in the official James Bond film series and saw the return of Sean Connery to the role of Agent 007 following George Lazenby's only appearance in On Her Majesty's Secret Service. The 1971 sequel finds Bond investigating a diamond smuggling ring that leads him to an eccentric Las Vegas businessman as well as an old nemesis. Directed by Goldfinger's Guy Hamilton, Diamonds Are Forever was Connery's final time as Bond in the official EON series, but he would eventually return as the secret agent in the rival 1983 Bond film Never Say Never Again.
The following weapons were used in the film Diamonds Are Forever:
James Bond (Sean Connery) carries his Walther PPK with brown grips, even though he never fires it in the film.
Smith & Wesson Model 10
The decoy Blofeld in the pre-credits mud bath aims a Smith & Wesson Model 10 on Bond before he is disarmed.
Colt Detective Special
The helicopter pilot meeting Mr. Wint and Mr. Kidd in the African desert carries a Colt Detective Special, as do the mobsters working for Blofeld and Slumber. Some of Felix Leiter's CIA agents also have Detective Specials, including Leiter (Norman Burton) himself.
Smith & Wesson Bodyguard
The real Peter Franks (Joe Robinson) pulls out a Smith & Wesson Bodyguard during the elevator fight with Bond. Ernst Stavro Blofeld (Charles Gray) also draws one on Bond when he is confronted in Willard Whyte's penthouse.
Smith & Wesson Model 10 HB
The Las Vegas sheriff (Roy Hollis) carries a Smith & Wesson Model 10 HB revolver when chasing Bond around the downtown part of the city.
Las Vegas policemen carry M1911A1s in their holsters. One of Leiter's CIA agents also carries a 1911.
Star Model B
One of Leiter's CIA agents carries a Star Model B when going to Willard Whyte's residence.
Sterling Arms Model 302
A Sterling Arms Model 302 pistol is seen in the credits with Sean Connery's name.
Felix Leiter's CIA agents carry Thompson M1A1s, shooting and killing Blofeld's henchman Bert Saxby when raiding the Las Vegas desert house to rescue Bond and free Willard Whyte from kidnappers.
Blofeld's guards carry Madsen M50s at the Baja facility in the finale. Tiffany Case (Jill St. John) picks one up, only to fire it haphazardly and fall into the water with it.
Blofeld's henchman in the pre-credits sequence aims an M16 rifle at Bond. A USAF airman guarding a missile base also carries the rifle.
Sporter Mauser Rifle
Bert Saxby (Bruce Cabot) uses a scoped Mauser Sporter with a scope when attempting to kill Willard Whyte outside his home. You can see the bolt release knob when he holds the rifle up after being shot. Also note the "slot" on the left side just in front of the bolt release knob. A tell tale sign that Saxby is using a "sporterized" Mauser 98 or a new Mauser 98 Supreme as made by FN at the time.
Chinese soldiers appear to be armed with what appears to a stunt version of the Mauser Kar98k when Blofeld's satellite takes out the missile base. The rifle is seen carried by the soldier guarding a row of missiles who was set on fire by the heat of the laser beam and another at the gate of the missile base.
Some of the US Marines fire Browning M1919 machine guns, fitted with a strange muzzle device, from their helicopters.
Browning M2 Aircraft
Blofeld's men fire a Browning M2 Aircraft machine gun at the incoming helicopters.
Oerlikon 20mm Cannon
An Oerlikon 20mm Cannon is used by SPECTRE operatives during the oil rig assault.
Harrington & Richardson Mark VI flare gun
While atop the Whyte House hotel, Bond uses what appears to be a Harrington & Richardson Mark VI Flare Gun.
