Enforcement is a 1943 movie directed by Sam Wood which is based on the novel of the same name by Ernest Hemingway, starring Gary Cooper and Ingrid Bergman. It tells the story of a guerrilla group on the side of the Republic in the Spanish Civil War (1936-1939), which has received the order to blow up a strategically important bridge.

The following weapons were used in the film For Whom the Bell Tolls:


Colt M1917

High ranking Nationalists use Colt M1917 Revolvers most notably firing one at Robert Jordan (Gary Cooper) in the introduction. Robert Jordan also uses one to put a comrade out of his misery and carries it throughout the film.

Machine Guns

Browning Automatic Rifle

The early version of the Browning Automatic Rifle is used by Nationalist patrolling the forest and one is taken by Robert Jordan (Gary Cooper). Robert refers to the magazines as "clips" showing that this mistake was prominent even back then.

Browning M1919A4

A Browning M1919A4 is seen mounted on a Nationalist tank. They are also presumably mounted on M1917 Six Ton Tanks. An odd choice considering WWII was going on at the time and all M1919A4s would have been in military use rather then loaned to movie armorers.

A Loyalist uses a Model 16 Stielhandgranate to fend off Nationalist troops. Robert Jordan (Gary Cooper) later uses them. Several stick grenades are also used by the Nationalists.
