Live and Let Die is the 8th installment in the official James Bond film series and marked the debut of Roger Moore as Agent 007. The 1973 sequel finds Bond investigating the death of MI6 agents who were working with the CIA and leads him to a conspiracy involving Harlem drug lords and a corrupt government in the Caribbean.

The following weapons were used in the film Live and Let Die:



Walther PPK

James Bond (Roger Moore) carries his usual .32 ACP Walther PPK throughout the film, although he never has the chance to fire it. Bond's CIA friend Harold Strutter (Lon Satton) also carries a PPK.

Tee-Hee gives Bond back his now useless PPK.
Strutter (Lon Satton) arrives in the alley armed with a PPK.
Bond, with a new PPK, interrogates Rosie.

Smith & Wesson Model 19 Snub Nose

Rosie Carver (Gloria Hendry) carries a Smith & Wesson Model 19 Snub Nose, "standard CIA issue" with the serial number filed off. Quarrel Jr. (Roy Stewart) carries a similar revolver. Rosie holds him at gunpoint with his own gun, which he points out has had the "safety" on the entire time. Several of Kananga/Mr. Big's henchmen also carry Model 19s.

Bond recognizes the revolver as "standard CIA issue". He claims the serial number was filed off, yet the serial number on S&Ws is on the butt plate, not under the crane and certainly not on the right side, where he looks.
Rosie sees a revolver very similar to hers on Quarrel Jr.'s boat.

Smith & Wesson Model 27

Bond picks up a Smith & Wesson Model 27 with a 3.5 inch barrel and factory grip in the alley from one of his would-be killers in the alley before he is stopped by Strutter.
