Who Finds a Friend Finds a Treasure (original title Chi trova un amico trova un tesoro) is a 1981 Italian-American adventure comedy directed by Sergio Corbucci and starring comedy duo Terence Hill and Bud Spencer as two adventurers who are trying to find a treasure on a remote island in Pacific.

The following weapons were used in the film Who Finds a Friend Finds a Treasure (Chi trova un amico trova un tesoro):


Colt Detective Special 3rd Generation

When Joe Frisco's gang captures Kamasuka and Anulu, Frisco (Salvatore Basile) himself is seen holding a 3rd Gen. Colt DS revolver.

Lee-Enfield No.4 Mk.I

While an Arisaka would be the best fitting rifle for Kamasuka (John Fujioka), a Japanese soldier who continues to fight thirty-five years after the war, he uses several Lee-Enfield No.4 Mk.I rifles. One of them Kamasuka carried himself, and several others he uses as "remotely controlled".

An SMLE is fired by pulling the cord. However it can fire only once as there is no way to move the breach handle.

Machine Guns

Unidentified machine gun

During the fight for the fortress Kamasuka (John Fujioka) uses a machine gun that appears to be an acetylene-firing mockup rather than a real gun. It has spade grips and an M1919-style barrel.

Other Weapons

During the fight for the fortress Kamasuka (John Fujioka) also uses Mk 2 hand grenades.

Alan and Charlie use a war-time Japanese tank to attack the fortress. The tank is a specially made self-moving mockup that doesn't fit any real vehicle but is a generic representation of a light tank.
