The following weapons were used in the film Year of the Gun:


Beretta 92SB-C

Giovanni (Mattia Sbragia) carries a Beretta 92SB-C with wood grips. David Raybourne (Andrew McCarthy) captures his gun and Alison King (Sharon Stone) uses it. This weapon is anachronistic for 1978, the year in which the film is set, because the 92SB-C was not introduced until 1981.

Beretta 92FS

Several members of the Red Brigades are seen with a Beretta 92FS. One of Aldo Moro's bodyguards also pulls this pistol. This weapon is anachronistic for 1978, the year in which the film is set (the earliest examples of the Beretta 92SB-F developed for the U.S. Army's XM9 pistol trials were first produced in 1984).
