Night of the Running Man is a 1995 direct-to-video crime thriller directed by Mark L. Lester and based on the novel by Lee Wells. Jerry Logan (Andrew McCarthy), a cab driver in Las Vegas, gets a $1 million, stolen from mob-owned casino, after his passenger is killed by pursuers. Logan escapes with the cash but a hitman David Eckhart (Scott Glenn) pursues him.

The following weapons were used in the film Night of the Running Man:


Smith & Wesson Model 36

A mugger (Mayf Nutter) attempts to rob David Eckhart, using the Smith & Wesson Model 36 revolver.

Smith & Wesson Model 586/Model 686

While pursuing Logan's cab, the mob hitman (Carl Ciarfalio) fires a revolver that isn't seen clear due to darkness. The digitally enhanced screenshot allows to see that the revolver has full underlug and target sights so Smith & Wesson Model 586 or Smith & Wesson Model 686 are most possible guesses.
