Law & Order - Season 5 (1994 – 1995)

Season 5 of Law & Order saw the addition of Sam Waterston to the cast as EADA Jack McCoy. Waterston would stay on as McCoy for the rest of the series and appear on the spin-offs SVU, Trial by Jury, and even sister series Homicide: Life on the Street. Dann Florek would return for a guest appearance as Captain Donald Cragen in episode 20, "Bad Faith." Carolyn McCormick was removed from the opening credits.

The fifth season would be the last for Chris Noth, whose salary became too expensive for the show. Noth was the last of the original cast from the initial pilot (filmed in 1988) to leave. Contrary to popular belief, fellow longtime cast member Steven Hill did not begin his time on the series until the premiere in 1990. In Season 5's finale "Pride" (S5E23), Logan was seen slugging a homophobic city councilman in front of news cameras and dozens of witnesses, and the episode ended with McCoy surmising Logan would be reassigned to sleepy Staten Island. An audience favorite, Noth would first return as Logan in the 1998 television film Exiled: A Law & Order Movie, and later as a regular cast member for a few seasons on Law & Order: Criminal Intent.




The following weapons were used in Season 5 of the television series Law & Order:


Smith & Wesson Model 36

Detective Lennie Brisco (Jerry Orbach), Detective Mike Logan (Chris Noth) and Lieutenant Anita Van Buren (S. Epatha Merkerson) are armed with Smith & Wesson Model 36 revolvers. Despite the NYPD having officially switched to automatic pistols on January 1st, 1994, older officers like Briscoe, Logan and Van Buren were grandfathered in and allowed to continue carrying revolvers.

Smith & Wesson Model 64

Smith & Wesson Model 64's are seen in various episodes. The S&W Model 64 was modified to meet NYPD requirements and designated as the Model NY-1 by the NYPD and was the authorized issued revolver for all officers of the NYPD who entered on to "the Job" after 1986 until the department stopped issuing revolvers and began issuing semi-automatic 9mm pistols starting around 1992.

Charter Arms Undercover

A Charter Arms Undercover appears in Season 5's "Wannabe" (S05E16). The gun is said to be chambered in .32 H&R Magnum, which is incorrect, since the Undercover is only chambered in .38 Special, and would therefore be the Undercoverette model, which would be chambered in .32 H&R Magnum.
