Johnny Handsome is a 1989 action film starring Mickey Rourke as John, a criminal with a disfigured face who is double-crossed during a robbery and sent to prison. After undergoing a cosmetic surgery procedure that gives him a normal face, John then goes on the hunt to find the ones who betrayed him.

The following weapons were used in the film Johnny Handsome:


Beretta 92F

In preparation for the shipyard heist. John Sedley (Mickey Rourke) purchases a Beretta 92F and Glock 17 from a gun dealer. Larry (J.W. Smith) is also seen with what appears to be one towards the end of the film.

Beretta 92F - 9x19mm. The cosmetic differences are very slight and hard to see. Most of the changes are the inner workings of the gun.
