Shaft's Big Score! is the 1972 sequel to 1971's Shaft. The sequel was directed by Gordon Parks and Richard Roundtree returns as John Shaft, who has to deal with large sum of missing mob money and the murder of a personal friend. Roundtree would then return in 1973's Shaft in Africa and then in the 2000 and 2019 sequels.

The following weapons were used in the film Shaft's Big Score!:

Smith & Wesson Model 36

Instead of using a Colt Detective Special like in the previous film, John Shaft (Richard Roundtree) uses a nickel Smith & Wesson Model 36 with pearl grips throughout this film.

Colt Detective Special

Some of Gus Mascola's (Joseph Mascolo) thugs carry blued Colt Detective Specials. They are also used by the hitmen disguised as flowermen sent to kill Shaft.
