The Colt .45.
Is it a M1911A1 or a World War 1 issued M1911?Oliveira 21:23, 17 January 2009 (UTC)
Well it's hard to make out from the screen shot but I believe that I can see the arched mainspring housing on the grip. Making it the 1911A1. Jcordell
Thanks! It was tough to find clear enough shots but these should help for identification purposes. - Speakeasy804
I think you're right about the curved mainspring housing. Furthermore, the beavertail looks like the longer one from the A1. --redram355 17:28, 7 February 2010 (UTC)
Star mdl B --Sg688 20:38, 5 April 2012 (CDT)
I agree with Sg688. I own a Star Model B and the hammer is definitely that of the Star and there is no visible grip safety in any close-ups. the slide also appears to be thinner than that of a 1911, yet another difference I have noticed between the Star Model B and M1911A1. 1911isthebestgunever
Diamondback with Detective Special Grips. Comparison
The top gun is the Python. Note the flared grip with the very flat bottom and sharp edges. Below this is the Diamondback. The factory issue grips for the Diamondback are slightly smaller versions of those for the Python. this gun has been fitted with the rounded Detective Special grips like the ones on the gun in Bullitt. The bottom gun is the Detective Special that every TV and movie cop and bad guy carried in the 1940's and 1950's. You can see that the factory grips on this gun are the rounded style like on the Diamondback. Colt never made this style of grip for the Python.--Jcordell 01:33, 27 May 2009 (UTC)
Winchester 1897 shotgun
The shotgun is definitively a 12 gauge. When the hit man is loading shells during the car chase, they are red in color. Sixteen gauge shells would be purple, and 20 gauge shells would be yellow. Twenty-eight gauge shells might be red, but they would be noticeably smaller in size.
something interesting, on a radio show I listen to Michael Madsen claims that he owns the 1897 they used in this movie.
