The Nice Guys is a 2016 neo noir comedy co-written and directed by Shane Black. Set in 1977 Los Angeles, the film follows two down and out private detectives who together uncover a conspiracy while searching for a missing woman.
The following weapons were used in the film The Nice Guys:
Smith & Wesson Model 36 (Nickel)
Holland March (Ryan Gosling) is seen with a nickel Smith & Wesson Model 36 revolver throughout the film.
Smith & Wesson 59
A Smith & Wesson 59 is used by Blueface (Beau Knapp) during a shootout.
Smith & Wesson Model 59 - 9x19mm
The pistol used by Jackson Healy (Russell Crowe) during the house shootout appears to be a SIG-Sauer compact, possibly a SIG-Sauer P230. The P230 would be period-appropriate as it began production 2 years before the year of the film (1977).
SIG-Sauer P230 - .380 ACP (9mm kurz).
Jackson Healy (Russell Crowe
) fires the pistol. Note the smooth, sloping contours of the trigger guard and rear of the slide, both of which look more akin to a SIG-Sauer than a Walther.
A Walther P38 is the handgun used by John Boy (Matthew Bomer) during a shootout.
