Concorde Affaire '79 (original title Affare Concorde) is a 1979 Italian action thriller directed by Ruggero Deodato. An American reporter Moses Brody (James Franciscus) starts an independent investigation of the crash of supersonic passenger airliner Concorde. He soon finds that it wasn't an accident but a sabotage, and now his life is in danger.

The following weapons are seen in the movie Concorde Affaire '79:



During the shootout between Forsythe (Venantino Venantini) and his henchmen, and the Martinique local police forces both sides use pistols that can be identified as French MAB PA-15. Moses Brody (James Franciscus) takes the same pistol from a bank guard but doesn't use it in action.

Rast-Gasser 1898

Forsythe (Venantino Venantini) carries a revolver that is seen very briefly and unclearly. It has an ejector rod positioned at the side of the barrel. Due to this detale and the general outlook this revolver is supposed to be an antique (for 1979) Rast-Gasser 1898.

Unidentified revolver 2

One of Forsythe's henchmen is seen with a snub nose revolver. The shape of the barrel, the ejector rod shroud and the trigger guard resemble Astra revolvers, like the Astra Cadix, but the shape of the frame differs.

Submachine Guns


During the night scene in Rio de Janeiro airport a police officer holds a submachine gun that mostly resembles an MP40.

The rear sight in the middle on the receiver, the typical 'hook' below the barrel and the stock that seems to be folded below the receiver allows to identify the SMG as MP40.


Over and Under Shotgun

In the opening scene Milland (Joseph Cotten) fires an Over and Under Shotgun on a skeet shooting range.
