Hoffa is a 1992 biographical film that chronicles the life of union leader Jimmy Hoffa (Jack Nicholson) as he rises to power as President of the International Brotherhood of Teamsters. The film was written by David Mamet and directed by Danny DeVito (who co-starred in the film as Robert Ciaro).
The following weapons were used in the film Hoffa:
WARNING! THIS PAGE CONTAINS SPOILERS!
Colt New Service
During the first 1935 flashback, Hoffa's friend Billy Flynn (Robert Prosky) holds a Colt New Service on Bobby Ciaro (Danny DeVito) when Bobby holds Hoffa at knifepoint.
Colt Police Positive
A "scab" truck driver holds a Colt Police Positive with a three inch barrel on Hoffa during one of the organizing drives.
Smith & Wesson Model 19 Snub
Bobby Ciaro (Danny DeVito) keeps a Smith & Wesson Model 19 Snub in a shoulder holster in 1975, giving it to Jimmy Hoffa (Jack Nicholson), who places it in his shoe. Later, when Bobby reaches for his Model 19, he realizes he had given it to Hoffa as he grabs his empty holster.
Colt Detective Special
While driving to the RTA strike, Bobby Ciaro (Danny DeVito) draws his Colt Detective Special when Hoffa's car is stopped.
Smith & Wesson Model 10
A man at the RTA strike fires a Smith & Wesson Model 10 into the air before he is apprehended by police.
Smith & Wesson Model 38 (Nickel)
Bobby Ciaro (Danny DeVito) pulls a nickel-plated Smith & Wesson Model 38 out of his shoulder holster, using it to intimidate Sol Stein (Cliff Gorman) when going to meet D'Allesandro. He later draws it when he thinks he hears gunshots (but it turns out to be a beer keg bursting). Note: this revolver is most likely a nickel Model 38 Airweight Bodyguard as the stainless Model 649 was not produced until the 1980s.
As Hoffa and D'Allesandro talk about the pension fund loans, Bobby Ciaro (Danny DeVito) spots a deer and pulls out his M1911A1, firing four shots into it and causing the other Teamsters to jump to the ground, not expecting to actually hear any gunshots on the hunting trip. While telling the story seven years later before his Senate committee hearing, Hoffa explains that Bobby then tried to skin the deer with a nail file since he didn't have a knife.
The mob hitman (Frank Whaley), disguised as a truck driver, draws a suppressed West German Walther PP from his waistband during the film's end to shoot and kill both Jimmy Hoffa and Bobby Ciaro.
Inside the roadhouse, Bobby Ciaro (Danny DeVito) checks a hammerless shotgun, which Hoffa had referred to as a lupara, in anticipation of the meeting with the mobsters.
Remington Model 30
Most clearly seen in the deleted scenes, Bobby Ciaro (Danny DeVito) hands a Remington Model 30 to mobster Carol "Dally" D'Allesandro (Armand Assante) by dramatically pulling back the bolt behind him. D'Allesandro then fires at a beer bottle, missing. Jimmy Hoffa (Jack Nicholson) takes the rifle and fires the same shot, hitting the bottle. D'Allesandro, Hoffa, and Frank Fitzsimmons (J.T. Walsh) all carry these while out "hunting".
Pete Connolly (John C. Reilly) carries a Savage 99 lever action rifle during the 1950 "hunting" trip with Hoffa and D'Allesandro.
Federal Gas Riot Gun
The police at the RTA strike fire Federal Gas Riot Guns into the air above the crowd.
