Colt 38 Special Squad (Quelli della calibro 38)
Colt 38 Special Squad (original title Quelli della calibro 38 ("Those ones of 38 caliber")) is a 1976 Italian crime movie directed by Massimo Dallamano. Commissioner Vanni (Marcel Bozzuffi) is waging his personal war against a ruthless crime boss known as "Marsigliese" (Ivan Rassimov) who murdered Vanni's wife. A main weapon of this war is a special squad of four police detectives that ride swift bikes and carry powerful revolvers.
The following weapons were used in the film Colt 38 Special Squad (Quelli della calibro 38):
The signature weapon of the special squad are long barreled revolvers. Contrary to the movie title, they are neither Colts nor .38 caliber but .357 Llama Comanche, identified due to the combination of vent rib and short shrouded ejector rod (another revolver with such features is a Colt Trooper MK V but it appeared half a dozen years later than the movie was filmed).
In the opening scene Commissioner Vanni (Marcel Bozzuffi) uses a Beretta M1934 pistol. It misfires when Vanni tries to shoot at Marsigliese and this leads Vanni to the idea to arm his subordinates with revolvers.
In several scenes Marsigliese (Ivan Rassimov) is armed with a pistol that appears to be a French Unique Bcf-66 pistol (Marsigliese is supposed to be a French criminal, after all!). Sometimes it is fitted with sound suppressor.
During the shootout in the opening scene Marsigliese (Ivan Rassimov) is armed with a pistol that appears to be a Beretta M1951. M1951s are also seen in hands of various criminals.
Marsigliese's henchmen use Luger P08 pistols in several scenes.
Beretta M38/42 or M38/44
In several scenes police carry Beretta M38/42 or Beretta M38/44 SMGs. They are seen only in distance or in darkness.
Sten Mk II
Several of Marsigliese's henchmen use Sten Mk II SMGs.
In one scene Marsigliese (Ivan Rassimov) fires an Armalite AR-7, fitted with sniper scope and sound suppressor.
During the attack on Marsigliese's hideout and in the final scene on the airfield several police snipers carry M16 assault rifles with sniper scopes.
Sniper M1 Carbine
In several scenes police snipers carry rifles that are seen only partially but most likely they are M1 Carbines, fitted with sniper scopes.
