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:
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.
Walther PPK - 9x17mm (.380 ACP)
Bond's PPK about to be destroyed by Tee-Hee (Julius Harris). The front of the slide was replaced with thin metal and hollowed out so it could be twisted easily; this can be seen by the uneven reflection on this part of the prop.
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, after disarming Rosie, holds her gun on her while she fixes her wig.
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.
Rosie emerges from underneath the boat with the revolver drawn.

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.

Bond intimidates Solitaire's captors with his .44 Magnum. Unfortunately Bond only had the six cartridges in the cylinder. After expending the initial load, he throws it away. Evidently he forgot Professor Callahan's teachings and neglected to bring a reload.
