Scarred City (also released as Scar City) is a 1998 action thriller directed by Ken Sanzel and starring Stephen Baldwin as John Trace, a gun-happy police officer who is drafted into a special unit, known as SCAR, that acts in death squad style, killing criminals rather than arresting them. Soon Trace feels himself in tensions with other members of SCAR, including his boss Lt. Laine Devon (Chazz Palminteri). On a mission on villa of a drug boss, while SCAR personnel kill all witnesses, Trace helps a call girl Candy (Tia Carrere) to escape. Now Trace and Candy are pursued by both cops and criminals.

The following weapons were used in the film Scarred City:


Rossi Model 971

During the shootout in adult book store one of the robbers (Al Thompson) is armed with a large frame, stainless steel revolver with full underlug. Its angular shape best matches Rossi Model 971.

Smith & Wesson Model 640 (?)

Drug boss Raphael Soto (Lou Cantres) holds a snub nose revolver when SCAR makes an attack on his villa. The general shape of what is seen bears resemblance with a Smith & Wesson Model 640 but it's impossible to make a strict guess.

For comparison: Smith & Wesson Model 640 Centennial - .357 Magnum
A small part of the revolver is seen through the door slot.

Unidentified revolver

One of the robbers (Dexter Locke) in adult book store holds a compact revolver. The general shape of this gun allows to guess it to be an inexpensive small caliber "Saturday night special".

A very blurry and unclear view of the revolver.


Browning Hi-Power

John Trace's (Stephen Baldwin) personal handgun is a Browning Hi-Power. In the scene in Candy's house he gives his pistol to Candy (Tia Carrere) in exchange for her M1911A1.

Candy (Tia Carrere) draws an M1911A1 that belonged to her late father and gives it to John Trace (Stephen Baldwin) who uses this pisol until the final.

Glock 19 (?)

Speedy (James Villemaire) carries a holstered pistol that appears to be some Glock model. The size of the holsters allows to guess that it's a compact model, like Glock 19.

Unidentified pistols

In the opening scene John Trace kills a drug dealer, thinking him to be armed. Then Bobby (Steven Flynn) puts a nondescript pocket pistol in hand of the dead man, thus falsifying the exhibit.

The grip is seen slightly better.
Sgt. Creedy carries the pistol in plastic bag.

Raphael Soto's bodyguard Hector (Elliot Santiago) uses an unidentified pistol during the shootout on Soto's villa.

Hector is shot. His pistol is partially seen at the right.

Terry Furrell's brother Ted (Bobby Unser Jr.) carries an unidentified pistol during the attempt to kill Candy. The shape of the barrel allows to guess that the pistol can be a member of Ruger .22 caliber family or maybe Browning Buckmark but it can also be some compact hammerless model, fitted with a long suppressor.

Ted Furrell leaves the car with a pistol in hand.

In the final scene a pair of Sam Bandusky's henchmen, Ted Crewe (Dylan Price) and an uncredited one, carry pistols.

Ted (at the left) holds his pistol that is seen very briefly and unclear.
