The following weapons were used in Season 3 of the series Magnum P.I.:
Colt Government Model
The main handgun used by Thomas Magnum (Tom Selleck) is a Colt MKIV/Series 70 Government Model, which is a commercial version of the U.S. Military M1911A1. This handgun is supposed to be the one he carried during his service in Vietnam and is sometimes carried in a tanker-style holster, most often seen carried inside wast band small of back, no holster. It is sometimes seen in Magnum's flashbacks to Vietnam. A former propmaster for the show has been quoted saying that the original gun was a traditional .45 ACP 1911, but was soon changed to a 9mm version because .45 ACP blanks were too hard to get on location for the show.
A Tokarev TT-33 pistol is seen used by Ivan (Bo Svenson) during a flashback to the Vietnam War in "Did You See the Sunrise, Pt.1" (S3E01).
Magnum carries a Walther PPK as a backup weapon in an ankle holster, notably seen in "The Big Blow" (S3E22).
Floyd (Pat Studstill) uses a Walther P38 to threaten TC and Higgins in "Past Tense" (S3E05).
Colt Detective Special
The Colt Detective Special is used throughout the series.
Smith & Wesson Model 15
A Smith & Wesson Model 15 is used by Magnum (Tom Selleck) in "Did You See the Sunrise, Pt.2" (S3E02).
Orville "Rick" Wright (Larry Manetti) uses an Uzi submachine gun in "Past Tense" (S3E05).
M16 Rifles are used by US Marines as well as Nuzo (James Whitmore Jr.) in "Did You See the Sunrise, Pt.2" (S3E02).
Ivan (Bo Svenson) is seen using a Remington 700 in "Did You See the Sunrise, Pt.2" (S3E02).
As what was common for productions in the 1970's and 1980's, the Valmet M71S rifle is seen used as a substitute for the AK-47. In a flashback to the Vietnam War, NVA soldiers are armed with the rifle.
