M3 "Grease Gun" .45 ACP. The later model M3A1 would eliminate the crank lever for cocking the bolt, and instead used a simple hole in the bolt for the shooter to use their finger.

Mk 2 Hand Grenade

Hank McCain uses a pair of Mk 2 Hand Grenades to remove the security gate in front of the casino's vault.

Marlin Model 1895

A guard at San Quentin is seen with a Marlin Model 1895 lever-action rifle. The side ejection port is visible as is the lever beneath the guards' cocking hand. Also the barrel style and front sights would suggest the Marlin Model 1895.
