Law & Order - Season 1
Law & Order premiered on Tuesday, September 13th, 1990, with the first episode "Prescription for Death". This episode actually was not the first episode produced as the original pilot "Everybody's Favorite Bagman" would eventually air as the sixth episode of the first season. This episode was produced two years earlier for CBS and had Roy Thinnes as District Attorney Alfred Wentworth rather than Steven Hill as DA Adam Schiff. CBS passed, and Hill was eventually hired when Thinnes was not able to reprise his role when the series went into production. Thinnes did return as a guest star in later seasons however, as well as in spinoffs SVU and Criminal Intent, but as different characters.

The following weapons were used in Season 1 of the television series Law & Order:
Smith & Wesson Model 36
Sergeant Max Greevey (George Dzundza) and Detective Mike Logan (Chris Noth) are armed with Smith & Wesson Model 36 revolvers. Captain Donald Cragen (Dann Florek) appears to be armed with one as well, but never draws it.
Ruger Speed Six
Smith & Wesson Model 64
A Ruger Redhawk with black rubber grips, stainless steel finish and what appears to be a 5.5" barrel is a piece of evidence in "Poison Ivy" (S01E08). While it is never called that by name, characters refer to it as a "magnum" and say that it was chambered in .357 Magnum. While it is true that Ruger's Redhawk platform is primarily known for .44 Magnum chamberings, and Ruger focused on .357 in their Security Six and, later, GP-100 platforms, this is not necessarily an inaccuracy - A small number of very early .357 Redhawks were produced, with six rounds of capacity, though this chambering was later discontinued in favor of larger calibers, primarily .44 Magnum. Ruger would later return the .357 Redhawk to production in 2016, with an eight round cylinder.
Charter Arms Undercover
A Charter Arms Undercover is found in a victim's apartment in "Mushrooms" (S01E17).
Smith & Wesson Model 10HB
An ESU officer with a Smith & Wesson Model 10HB in "The Secret Sharers" (S01E18).
A Beretta 92F is the murder weapon in "Happily Ever After" (S01E05). It is described by the investigators as a "Beretta model 94, blowback semi-automatic. 9mm", which is completely made up. In a continuity break, a M1911A1 on the counter turns into a Beretta 92F in "Poison Ivy" (S01E08). (It's likely a 92F rather than a 92FS because the episode was filmed in 1990.)
Greco (uncredited) is armed with what appears to be a suppressed Beretta 84 in "Everybody's Favorite Bagman" (S01E06).
Sgt. Greevey pulls a M1911A1 out of a gunsmith's (John Capodice) drawer in "Poison Ivy" (S01E08).
What appears to be a Astra 200 is used to kill a police officer in "A Death in the Family" (S01E13). It is picked up off the street by Revina (Karina Arroyave) who draws it on Dets. Greevey and Logan. It is described as a "Smith & Wesson .32."
Smith & Wesson 639
A Smith & Wesson 639 is seen in a stash of guns found in a crackhouse in "Mushrooms" (S01E17).
MAC-10's are used by mob hitmen when confronting Frank Masucci in Season 1's "The Torrents of Greed Part 2" (S01E16).
A Micro Uzi is seen in a stash of guns found in a crackhouse in "Mushrooms" (S01E17).
A TEC-9 is the murder weapon in in "Mushrooms" (S01E17).
