Law & Order - Season 3 (1992 – 1993)

Season 3 of Law & Order saw yet another cast change, in mid-season this time. Paul Sorvino gave way to Jerry Orbach in the ninth episode, who began his twelve season run as Det. Lennie Briscoe. The role of Lennie Briscoe was actually Orbach's second role on the show, having first appeared as a lawyer in Season 2. This would not be a rare occurrence, as many subsequent cast members would appear as guests before joining the regular cast. Carolyn McCormick, who had been a semi-regular as Dr. Elizabeth Olivet since the start of Season 2, was tacked onto the ending of the opening credits, since she didn't really fall into either the "Law" or the "Order" side.




The following weapons were used in Season 3 of the television series Law & Order:


Smith & Wesson Model 36

Sergeant Phil Cerreta (Paul Sorvino), Detective Lennie Brisco (Jerry Orbach) 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.

Smith & Wesson Model 10s are carried by the NYPD Officers in the initial seasons of the series. The Smith & Wesson Model 10 was an authorized weapon for all NYPD officers who had entered onto the job on or prior to 1986.

Smith & Wesson Model 64

Smith & Wesson Model 64's are seen in various episodes. The S&W Model 64 was modified to meet NYPD requirements and designated as the Model NY-1 by the NYPD and was the authorized issued revolver for all officers of the NYPD who entered on to "the Job" after 1986 until the department stopped issuing revolvers and began issuing semi-automatic 9mm pistols starting around 1992.

Beretta 92F/FS

A Beretta 92FS is found in Season 3's "Securitate" (S3E20) and is identified as a "9mm Beretta" by Detective Logan. Ballistics had earlier identified it as a "Beretta 92."

Phil Ceretta (Paul Sorvino) is seen handling the weapon during an undercover arms deal in the same episode. It is correctly identified as a "Steyr AUG" chambered in .223.
