Code of Silence
Code of Silence is a 1985 action film that starred Chuck Norris as a detective with the Chicago Police Department who finds himself in the middle of a drug war in the city. The film was the third feature film directed by Andrew Davis (Under Siege) and the cast included several former Chicago police officers including Dennis Farina.
The following weapons were used in the film Code of Silence:
Dan Wesson Model 15
Dan Wesson Model 715
Colt Detective Special
The Colt Detective Special is the sidearm of several CPD officers in the film. When two thugs attempt to rob a cop bar, several off-duty officers pull their Colt DS revolvers.
A 4” barrel Colt Python is used in several scenes.
When the thugs try to rob the bar, Det. Dorato (Dennis Farina) is seen pulling a 3” barrel revolver with adjustable sights. Because of the shape of the hammer, front of the frame and trigger guard it appears that it is an Astra 357, although it is never seen well enough to confirm this for sure.
One of the hitmen carries an RG-22 revolver during the opening drug den shootout.
Smith & Wesson Model 10 (Nickel Snub Nose)
Smith & Wesson Model 10 (4” barrel)
A 4" barrel Smith & Wesson Model 10 is seen as well.
Smith & Wesson Model 15
Smith & Wesson Model 19
Smith & Wesson Model 29 (Nickel Finish)
Lt. Kobas (Joseph Kosala) carries an 8” barrel Smith & Wesson Model 29 with a nickel finish as his sidearm. Joseph Kosala was a Chicago PD officer at the time and served as a technical advisor for the film. Kosala would later appear in other films directed by Andrew Davis, including a role as one of the Chicago PD detectives who questions Richard Kimble (Harrison Ford) at the beginning of The Fugitive (1993).
Several revolvers both in the bar robbery scenes and before the final warehouse shootout.
Det. Cragie (Ralph Foody) carries a Beretta Jetfire in an ankle holster. He puts it in the hand of an unarmed kid that he shot by mistake. At the end of the movie, he has replaced this one with a identical pistol.
When the thugs attempt to rob the bar, one of the off-duty police officers pulls what appears to be a nickel-plated M1911A1 pistol.
Mossberg 500AT (Pistol Grip)
A Mossberg 500AT shotgun fitted with a pistol grip and wood furniture is used by both Det. Dorato (Dennis Farina) and Sgt. Eddie Cusack (Chuck Norris). Cusack's Mossberg is used in the final warehouse shootout and is also fitted with a heavy choke. As the movie was filmed in Chicago around the same time, the firearm is likely the same shotgun used in the 1986 Schwarzenegger film Raw Deal.
Several 12 Gauge Double Barreled Shotguns is used throughout the film. One of the robbers in the bank scene carries a double-barreled shotgun.
Heckler & Koch HK94
One of Comacho's guards is seen on the rooftop armed with a Heckler & Koch HK94. Because the movie was filmed in Chicago around the same time, this is likely the same firearm seen in the 1986 Schwarzenegger film Raw Deal.
MAC-10's suppressed and unsuppressed are prominently used by the hitmen disguised as painters who take out several drug dealers in the opening shootout.
An Uzi is used by a hitman disguised as a painter in the opening shootout.
One of Camacho's men is seen armed with an M16 during the final shootout.
A Ruger AC556K is used by a hitman disguised as a painter in the opening shootout.
One of Luis' men is seen opening fire with a Remington 700 during the final warehouse shootout.
The robotic law enforcement vehicle named the "Prowler" is armed with two machine guns and two rocket launchers. It is first seen during its introduction to the police. Later Prowler is used by Cusack in the final shootout.
