The following weapons were used in the film Silk:


Double Barreled Percussion Cap Pistol

Hervé Joncour (Michael Pitt) carries a Double Barreled Percussion Cap Pistol during his visits to Japan. The similar looking guns can be seen tucked to the belts of Umon (Jun Kunimura) and several other Japanese men. The single gun appeared onscreen, so, the single movie prop was used.
