The Bourne Identity (1988).

The Bourne Identity is a 1988 television film starring Richard Chamberlain as Jason Bourne. The film aired in two parts on television and was the first adaptation of Robert Ludlum novel published eight years earlier. A feature film adaptation of the novel starring Matt Damon as Jason Bourne was released in 2002.

The following weapons were used in the TV film The Bourne Identity:


IMI Desert Eagle Mark I

One of Carlos's men uses a Desert Eagle to shoot Jason Bourne twice on a boat outside Marseilles. It is most likely the earliest Mark I model.

Beretta 92

Dr. Geoffrey Washburn (Denholm Elliott) tosses an early Beretta 92 to Jason Bourne (Richard Chamberlain), asking him to disassemble it. Bourne does so professionally, although he is unable to recall why or how he is able to. Bourne later takes a Beretta 92 from D'Anjou (James Faulkner) in Paris.

Smith & Wesson Model 19 Snubnose

The most commonly seen weapon in the film is a Smith & Wesson Model 19 Snubnose that Bourne takes from a hitman (Wayne Michaels) he disarms in the Zurich bank elevator. He uses it throughout the film. One of the NYPD officers during the finale also has a Model 19 Snub. This is the same weapon that can be seen wielded by Bourne on the DVD cover. Bourne never gets more ammo for the gun, so it seemingly has unlimited ammo.

Walther PPK

All of the Zurich assassins, including "Gold Glasses" (Wolf Kahler), Johann (Terry Richards), and Fritz Koenig (Peter Vaughan), use suppressed Walther PPK pistols. Gold Glasses (Wolf Kahler) fires it at Bourne in the bank in Zurich, somehow firing 17 shots from it. Bourne gets a hold of one after he is detained by Gold Glasses in Zurich, using it to stop Johann from raping Marie. Despite the suppressor, it sounds unsuppressed when Bourne fires it.
