Last of the Wolves (Japanese: 孤狼の血 LEVEL2 Korō no Chi Level 2) is the 2021 sequel to 2018's The Blood of Wolves and based on the police novel series: Korou no Chi (JP:孤狼の血 / ころうのち). Kazuya Shiraishi returns as director, with Tori Matsuzaka reprising his role as Shuichi Hioka. Set in 1990's in Kure, Hiroshima, the story follows Hioka, who now controls and maintains peace in the Hiroshima underworld and Shigehiro Uebayashi (Ryohei Suzuki), a psychopathic yakuza recently released from prison who seeks to usurp the hard fought peace.

Note several screenshots have had their brightness adjusted for clarity. In addition flashback sequences of the prior film used in the intro are not included here.


The following weapons were used in the film Last of the Wolves:

Revolvers

Nambu Model 60 & New Nambu Model 60

Shuichi Hioka (Tori Matsuzaka) uses a New Nambu Model 60 throughout the movie. Superintendent Daisuke Saga (Kenichi Takito) is also seen with one. The Nambu Model 60 which Hioka grabs off of Assistant Inspector Satoru Nakagami (Hiroki Miyake) appears to be the earlier snub nose Nambu Model 60 (although it appears to switch to the New Model during the car chase). The revolvers are possibly Tanaka Works M36 blank firing replicas, as those were used in the production.

Uebayashi taunts Hioka to shoot him, stating Shinigami (the god of death) won't let him die. The revolver clicks empty.

Smith & Wesson Military & Police

What appears to be a Smith & Wesson Military & Police with Smith & Wesson Model 10 grips is seen during the intro. A darker version of this same shot was used later in the film.

Smith & Wesson Model 10

The Smith & Wesson Model 10 appears as the standard firearm used by the various Yakuza throughout the film. It is seen in both standard configuration and 3-inch configuration.

What is possibly a customized Tanaka Works blank firing replica is used by Chikada "Chinta" Kota (Nijiro Murakami).

Handguns

Colt M1911A1

A M1911A1 is used by Shigehiro Uebayashi (Ryohei Suzuki). Otani-gumi member Masaru Hanada (Taichi Saotome) uses a nickel plated M1911A1 with pearl grips.

Norinco Type 54

The Norinco Type 54 is primarily used by Kanbayashi-gumi member Takeshi Tokura (Motohiro Oguri). It is also seen in the hands of a Hiroshima Hitomasa-kai member during the intro and seen in a flashback to the first film during the prologue. Note the gangsters seen in the intro inaccurately appear to load their revolvers with 7.62x25mm Tokarev.

"Hanada, shineee!" ("Die, Hanada!") Tokura fires his last shot at Masaru Hanada. Note much like Hanada above, he also uses a technique to fire the semi-auto pistol which would likely cause it to malfunction.
Takeshi Tokura's Type 54 locks back empty, much to his surprise.

Shotguns

Browning A-Bolt / Miroku MSS-20 CP

Near the end of the movie, two hunters in northern Hiroshima are seen with scoped shotguns. They are armed with either Browning A-Bolts or Miroku MSS-20 CPs or both.

Browning A-Bolt with scope - 6.5×55mm (the one in the movie is likely chambered in 12 gauge and loaded with slug shells due to firearms laws in Japan)
Miroku MSS-20 CP with scope - 20 gauge
