WARNING! THIS PAGE CONTAINS SPOILERS!
Smith & Wesson Model 29
A 4" barreled Smith & Wesson Model 29 is the service handgun used by Inspector Jack Cates (Nick Nolte), until it is stolen by Albert Ganz (James Remar).
Smith & Wesson Model 27 / 28
At the beginning of the movie, Albert Ganz (James Remar) uses a blued Smith & Wesson Model 27 / 28 N-frame revolver. It is most likely a Model 28, rather than the nicer, more expensive Model 27, though both are tapered-barrel .357 Magnum N-frame S&W revolvers. It could also be a Model 24 in .44 Special (also a tapered-barrel N-frame), but this is unlikely. The revolver shown used has a tapered barrel, and not the heavy 'bull' barrel of the Model 29 (Though the 'Mountain Gun' variant of the Model 29 has a tapered barrel, it was not available when the movie was filmed).
Smith & Wesson Model 15
Breaking up the fight between Jack and Reggie, an SFPD Patrol Officer (Chris Mulkey) deploys a Smith & Wesson Model 15.
Smith & Wesson Model 19 Snub Nose
A 2.5" barrel Smith & Wesson Model 19 Snub Nose is used by Reggie Hammond (Eddie Murphy) at the end of the movie.
Smith & Wesson Model 36
Casey (Margot Rose) is seen holding a Smith & Wesson Model 36 when Cates busts into her apartment.
Smith & Wesson Model 60
Detective Algren (Jonathan Banks) carries a Smith & Wesson Model 60, that he tries to use on Billy Bear after being shot.
Colt New Frontier
During the hotel shootout, Billy Bear (Sonny Landham) uses what appears to be a Colt New Frontier revolver with fixed sights instead of adjustable sights.
Colt New Service
Luther (David Patrick Kelly) carries a Colt New Service revolver as he's chased by Cates. Reggie Hammond (Eddie Murphy) takes the revolver away when Luther runs into a car door. An SFPD officer is also seen with one.
Inspector Jack Cates (Nick Nolte) uses a Colt Government Model after his Model 29 is stolen.
In the cowboy bar, Reggie Hammond takes a Jennings J-25 off one of the patrons while frisking him. He gives it to Cates, who then proceeds to unload it.
Ithaca 37 shotguns are carried by 2 of the correctional officers at the beginning of the film. An SFPD officer is seen holding an Ithaca as well.
