|A Colt Is My Passport|
(Koruto wa ore no pasupooto)
A Colt Is My Passport (Japanese: 拳銃は俺のパスポート; Koruto wa ore no pasupooto) is a 1967 Japanese crime movie.
The following weapons were used in the film A Colt Is My Passport:
WARNING! Major spoiler
Beretta Model 70
A Beretta Model 70 is Shûji Kamimura's (Jô Shishido) firearm of choice. One of Shimazu's thugs fires a Beretta Model 70 during the final shootout. Shun Shiozaki (Jerry Fujio) holds suppressed Beretta Model 70 on the movie poster and promo shots, but not in the actual film. Note that the Beretta has a cross-bolt safety that was used only for a short time before is was replaced with a thumb-activated frame-mounted safety that is seen on most Model 70s.

Miyoshi (Akio Miyabe) uses a heavily customized Luger P08 throughout the movie. It's obviously a replica, likely a Japanese Modelgun.
Miyoshi checks his Luger at the film's beginning.

Miyoshi loads his Luger...
...and fires it at the shooting range. The jointed arm does not move when the pistol fires, so the muzzle flash is a typical flashpaper effect.
Miyoshi aims his Luger during the final shootout. It's impossible to attach a scope in such a way on a real Luger, as it would prevent the action from properly working.
Another view of the same scene. Note that the "cylinder" lacks any chambers.
FN Model 1910
A suppressed FN Model 1910-style pistol appears in the hands of one of Shimazu's thugs (Hiroshi Chô). Another one of Shimazu's thugs fires a similar pistol during the final shootout. It is likely the same prop being reused. The screen gun has raised sights that don't exist on the authentic FN Model 1910, so, it's most likely a Japanese Modelgun replica.
