Legacy of Rage is a 1986 Hong Kong action film starring Brandon Lee, Michael Wong, Regina Kent, and Hoi Mang directed by Ronny Yu. This was Brandon Lee's first starring role, and his only role in a Hong Kong film. Despite the producers playing up Brandon Lee's lineage (hence the title), this is much more of a Hong Kong-style shoot-em-up, with only one fight scene (against his father's old friend, Bolo Yeung.)
The following weapons were used in the film Legacy of Rage:
Smith & Wesson Model 29
Brandon Ma (Brandon Lee) and Michael (Michael Wong) take a few shots with Michael's new nickel-plated Smith & Wesson Model 29. Brandon uses another S&W 29 in the end, it may be the same gun.

Michael shows off his S&W 29.
Brandon does not take kindly to Michael's talk regarding his girlfriend.
When Brandon asks if Michael has any ammo for it, Michael offers these. But these are obviously not .44 Magnum rounds.

Smith & Wesson Model 64
Michael's plan to kill Sharky and have Brandon take the fall involves two identical snub-nosed Smith & Wesson Model 64s.
Smith & Wesson Model 64 Snub Nose - .38 Special This is the early variant.
The twin S&W 64's in a case. One is suppressed, to be used by Michael's henchman, Foo (Fui-On Shing
Brandon drops the S&W 64, believing he had killed Sharky.

Customized Llama IX-A
One of Brandon's weapons during his rampage is a customized two-tone Llama IX-A with custom grips, target sights and compensator.
A good shot of the Llama IX-A on the bottom. The target sights can be seen, as well as the external extractor. It has slanted grooves on the slide.
The rib running along top of the slide is barely discernible here.

Yup, it's a Hong Kong action movie...
Smith & Wesson Model 10 (Snub-nosed)
Michael sees a snub-nosed Smith & Wesson Model 10 and makes a grab for it...

The six shots in the cylinder can be seen, as well as a S&W style cylinder release.
Smith & Wesson Model 10HB

Hoi (Hoi Mang) uses a pair of Uzi Pistols during the rampage. He later hands one to Brandon after Brandon runs out of ammo.

Noticed the taped magazines.
Hoi performs a really cool magazine change. Note the distinctive grip shape of the pistol variant.

Brandon uses a Franchi SPAS-12 shotgun during his rampage. Like most movie depictions of the SPAS-12, it is insanely powerful, blowing up cars with two shots.

Various 12-gauge pump shotguns
The prison guards are all armed with various 12-gauge shotguns. There's not enough detail to make out type.
The filmmakers should be complemented for marking the passage of time by having the prison guards transition from summer khakis to winter blues.
Henchmen use original slab-sided M16 rifles.
