Talk:Miami Vice - Season 3
Beretta Cheetah or Model 70?
I think that the Beretta pistol used in the episode "heroes of the revolution" is not a "Cheetah", but a single-action model 70 (the 2nd scan seems to show a model 70, with the single action trigger, and the extension for the little finger in the magazine). I've modified accordingly the page. However I don't have here the DVD of this episode, so I might be making a mistake. Can anyone confirm that the gun is, actually, a model 70? Rafa
- I can view the episode again and take a better took. edit: I'm thinking anytime a suppressor was used they used the Model 70. Because the barrel is flush on the Cheetah, not on the Model 70. So good call. --Predator20 16:24, 16 November 2009 (UTC)
Bushmaster XM 15 "V-Match"
Though I know Bushmaster has been around for decades was this model even in existence in the 1980s? I thought Bushmaster did not come out with their Disspiator line of weapons until sometime in the 1990s. --Charon68 22:06, 8 December 2010 (UTC)
The Cuban rebels use Crosman AR-17 .177 pellet rifles, not the Armscor M16-22 (M1600).
Watching the episode today i saw the gun Diaz's partner pullled before trying to enter the room at the beginning of the episode and it looked to me like a SIG (either the P220 or P226, though part of me thinks P226 due to the episode being made in 1987) and i have no way to screencap it (same issue with my Colt Trooper edit) so if anyone has season 3 on DVD and wants to review the episodes just to be sure.
- Actually it is a SIG-Saur P226 in blued finish. The characters name is Detective Eddie Trumbull and he is played (briefly) by actor Viggo Mortensen.
