The Naked Gun: From the Files of Police Squad! (1988)

The Naked Gun: From the Files of Police Squad! is the feature film adaptation of the cult TV series Police Squad!. Leslie Nielsen reprises his role as the bumbling Lt. Frank Drebin. The film's cast includes George Kennedy, O.J. Simpson, Priscilla Presley, and Ricardo Montalban. The film was co-written and directed by David Zucker, Jim Abrahams, and Jerry Zucker, the same team who made the original Airplane!. Two sequels would follow: The Naked Gun 2 1/2: The Smell of Fear and The Naked Gun 33 1/3: The Final Insult.

The following weapons were used in the film The Naked Gun: From the Files of Police Squad!:


Colt Detective Special

Lt. Frank Drebin (Leslie Nielsen) uses a Colt Detective Special as his sidearm in the film.

We also see a full ejector shroud model with the longer sight as the sidearm of Capt. Ed Hocken (George Kennedy). Vincent Ludwig (Ricardo Montalban) shows off his mind control watch to his co-conspirator Pahpschmir, in which his assistant draws a full shroud Detective Special and tries to fire it at him, and puts the gun to her own head as well, only for it to be empty.

Smith & Wesson Model 15

One of the sailors uses a Smith & Wesson Model 15, dropping it to the floor when ordered to by Det. Nordberg (O.J. Simpson), until the six other armed men make him pick it back up.

Unknown Colt Revolver

Police at the ball game have unknown Colts in their holsters, likely either Pythons or Troopers.

Officers slowly inch their way over to Drebin as he sings The Star-Spangled Banner with their hands over their hearts, worried that it would be disrespectful to run on and arrest him in the middle of the song.

Smith & Wesson Model 27

The criminal trying to escape Drebin (Leslie Nielsen) as he pursues in a driver's ed cab fires out the back window with what appears to be a Smith & Wesson Model 27. It is either that or a New Century Hand Ejector.

Smith & Wesson Model 27 - .357 Magnum.

Unknown Revolvers

Many of the sailors use revolvers at angles to difficult for identification.

Colt M1911A1

An M1911A1 is the sidearm of Det. Nordberg (O.J. Simpson) during his infiltration of the boat "I Love You" before being shot up and barely surviving. Angels outfielder Reggie Jackson, under the control of Vincent Ludwig (Ricardo Montalban), is also seen pulling an M1911A1 from under a base plate at the ball game, using it in an attempt to kill Queen Elizabeth II (Jeannette Charles) before Frank Drebin (Leslie Nielsen) fires a tranquilizer round at him, which misses, and hits a fat woman on the upper level, who falls on him with disastrous results. Drebin then picks up the M1911A1 and pursues Ludwig.

Nordberg bursts in with his badge and M1911A1 drawn, and stupidly tries to get seven armed men to surrender their weapons (one of which is dumb enough to do so before the other men force him to pick it back up).

Reggie Jackson points his Colt Series 70 at the Queen. Note that the hammer is not cocked, meaning the gun will not fire if he pulls the trigger.

Taurus PT92

One of the sailors on the boat "I Love You" uses a stainless Taurus PT92. A Taurus is also used by a criminal in the meat packing plant before falling into a vat of toxic chemicals (which doesn't seem to follow health code for the plant).

Vincent Ludwig (Ricardo Montalban) draws a Micro Uzi during the ball game and uses it to hold up Jane Spencer (Priscilla Presley) before Drebin (Leslie Nielsen) hits him with a tranquilizer round.
