Double Tap is a 2000 Hong Kong action film starring Leslie Cheung as Rick, a pistol competition champion and HK cop who discovers his shooting technique has been copied in a series of homicides. The film was followed by 2010's Triple Tap.
The following weapons were used in the film Double Tap:
1911 pistol series

Rick (Leslie Cheung) uses this 9mm 1911 throughout the whole film which he customized himself.
Miu's Customized 1911
A 9mm 1911 customized by Joe (Joe Cheung Man Kwong) for Miu (Alex Fong Chung-Sun). Joe tells Miu that he put in a 13lbs recoil spring and to change the slide after 5,000 shots. Miu uses this gun for IPSC competition and to stop Rick (Leslie Cheung).

A 9mm 1911 Rick (Leslie Cheung) hired to customize for C.C. Yeung (Henry Fong Ping).

Other Customized 1911
Les Baer Custom 1911
Joe Cheung Man Kwong who acts in the film is also the film's technical adviser. On the Special Features: Behind the Scenes of the DVD, he uses a Les Baer Custom 1911 to teach actors how to use a gun like a IPSC competitor and explains the modifications used on a racegun.
Strayer Voigt Infinity
Springfield Armory M1911
Colt Detective Special
Colt Detective Special with a synthetic grip can be seen being used by two Hong Kong police officers while taking cover from Rick (Leslie Cheung). The Colt DS was the standard sidearm of HKPF officers in the criminal investigation units at that time the film was released, being replaced in favor of Glock 17 pistols.
A Third Generation Glock 17 can be seen in the hands of Joe Cheung (Joe Cheung Man Kwong) and a Second Generation in the hands of Wong (Raven Choi Yip San).
Rick (Leslie Cheung) loads a Beretta 92F at a shooting range, but never used the pistol.
Heckler & Koch MP5A3
Hong Kong Special Duties Unit officers use Heckler & Koch MP5A3s during the final shootout.
Since guns are illegal in Hong Kong, Rick (Leslie Cheung) converts his pistols into airsoft pistols. Hong Kong law states airsoft guns may not be fired with a muzzle energy above two joules of kinetic energy.
Note: It is widely believed and preached by anti-airsoft and anti-gun advocates that Airsoft guns can be readily and easily converted to fire live rounds. That idea itself is both very expensive and impractical. The same can be reverse. Although it is not impossible, it is not feasible.
