Season 2 of Mission: Impossible introduced Peter Graves as new IMF team leader Jim Phelps, replacing Steven Hill, who had been fired at the end of Season 1. Phelps was much more hands on than Dan Briggs, he was actively involved in every mission and wasn't afraid to get his hands dirty. Even though Graves wasn't a member of the original cast, he's still the one actor most people closely associate with the show, staying on for the show's remaining six seasons, and he was the only cast member of the original series to be a regular in the 1988 revival. Likewise, Jim Phelps was the only character from the original series to make it to the film series, although given what happened to him, it wasn't exactly an honor.

Martin Landau was finally signed on as a regular cast member, after being reluctant to do so during the first season due to fears of losing out on film work if tied to a five year television contract. He and the producers were able to reach a compromise that had him signing one-year contracts every year.

The team of Jim Phelps, Rollin Hand, Cinnamon Carter, Barney Collier and Willy Armitage was considered the definitive IMF team, despite being together for about a third of total episodes, and all subsequent attempts to revive the series in the late seventies and eighties all included the five in some capacity or another (which was very optimistic considering the way the Landaus left the show.) When a remake was finally given the green light in the late eighties, new actors were hired to play Jim, Rollin, Cinnamon, Barney and Willy, but with Peter Graves signing back on, the remake became a continuation and the remaining four roles became new, yet similar characters.

Changes were happening behind the camera as well. Desilu Productions had been sold to conglomerate Gulf+Western, which owned Paramount Pictures, in the summer of 1967 and incorporated as Paramount Television in December, so the show had to work harder to control the runaway budgets and delays that plagued the first season. Replacing Steven Hill with Peter Graves, which allowed the show to cut down on guest stars, and locking in Martin Landau did help, however. Creator Bruce Geller's other show, Mannix, was also picked up for the 1967-68 season, which took some of the Season 1 staff with it.

The show's ratings improved significantly for Season 2, partly because of its move to Sunday nights, and partly due to the addition of Peter Graves. The second two-parter of the season, "The Council" (episodes 11 and 12) were edited together and released as a feature in Europe, Mission Impossible Versus the Mob. The show was nominated for eleven Emmy awards, including another two nominations for Martin Landau and his wife Barbara Bain for Outstanding Continued Performance by an Actor/Actress in a Leading Role in a Dramatic Series, and for the second year in a row, only Barbara Bain walked away with an award. The show also won again for Outstanding Dramatic Series.

The following weapons were used in Season 2 of the television series Mission: Impossible (1966):

Rollin and Willy Armitage (Peter Lupus) with Detective Specials as they pose as federal agents in "The Photographer" (S02E15).

A closeup of a DS in "The Emerald" (S02E18). It had been a rubber snub-nosed Smith & Wesson Model 10 just earlier (see below). Since this appears to be an insert shot, and the producers didn't want to bring in the overworked (and expensive) actors for insert shots, it could be anybody's hand.
Williams (Claude Woolman) with a DS in "The Emerald" (S02E18).
Rollin bursts in with his DS in "The Counterfeiter" (S02E20).

Beretta M1934

Beretta Model 1934 - .380 ACP

Rollin Hand, dressed as Adolf Hitler, with Kelmann's M1934 in "Echo of Yesterday" (S02E14). (Somehow they made Hitler even creepier.)
David Redding (Anthony Zerbe) with a Beretta 1934 in "The Photographer" (S02E15). This is a continuity error, as it had been a Colt Pocket Hammerless a moment before (see below).
A close-up of Rollin's Beretta as he points it at Felicia Vabar (Katherine Woodville) in "The Spy" (S02E16).
Rollin holds his Beretta on Felicia in "The Spy" (S02E16). He later loses it to Lieutenant Dreis (George Sperdakos).

Walther P38 pistol (manufactured at the Mauser Factory) - World War Two dated - 9x19mm
Alex Cresnic (William Windom) with a suppressed P38 in "The Widow" (S02E01). Note that this suppressor is far more realistic looking than the one used in Season 1.
A Santales soldier is seen guarding Colonel Cardoza with a P38. General Diaz (Michael Pate) (left) had one earlier in the episode.
Kutler (Gene Dynarski) draws his P38 in "The Bank" (S02E04).
A bank guard with his P38 in "The Bank" (S02E04).

Barney with his specially modified P38 in "The Council: Part 1" (S02E11). According to Barney, flipping on the safety/decocker will cause the pistol to misfire.
Rollin flips the safety on Barney's specially modified P38 in "The Council: Part 2" (S02E12). Flipping on the safety/decocker on a normal P38 would lock the trigger in place.
Karl (Richard Morrison) with a P38 in "Echo of Yesterday" (S02E14).
Rollin Hand, dressed as Hitler, with a P38 in "Echo of Yesterday" (S02E14). The haziness is the first person perspective of Otto Kelmann, who had been drugged and forced to watch a reenactment of his wife's murder.
Barney swaps out a magazine of live rounds for a magazine of paint rounds in "The Photographer" (S02E15). It was highly presumptuous for him to assume that David Redding (Anthony Zerbe) would have a P38.
Jim Phelps does the same with Redding's bomb shelter arsenal in "The Photographer" (S02E15). Unlike Barney, Phelps brought loose rounds of various calibers, not knowing what he'd find.
Alex Morley's empty P38 locked open in "The Photographer" (S02E15).

Captain Barrera fires on a fleeing car in "The Condemned" (S02E19).

Jim holds the pistol in "The Slave: Part 2" (S02E06).

Johnny (Robert Phillips) points his Colt at Jimmy Bibo (Nicholas Colasanto) in "The Council: Part 1" (S02E11). Nicholas Colasanto, of course, it far better known for his role as Coach on Cheers.
Barney tosses Johnny's revolver out on the sidewalk after unloading it in "The Council: Part 1" (S02E11). Unlike many other scenes that involve a gun being dropped on hard surfaces, this appears to be a real gun rather than a rubber prop.
Johnny slips a (fake) suppressor onto his revolver in "The Council: Part 2" (S02E12).
Arno (Walter Alzmann) slips a (fake) suppressor onto his revolver in "The Spy" (S02E16).

Cherno threatens Phelps with his sidearm in "The Spy" (S02E16).
Cherno unloads his Mle 1892 in "The Spy" (S02E16). Note how the cylinder swings to the right, unlike most modern double action revolvers.
The fact that it is too easy to tell which chamber is loaded is precisely why this is a terrible way to intimidate someone.

Smith & Wesson Model 10 (rubber)

Yorgi Petrosian (Michael Strong) threatens Rollin with what appears to be a rubber snub-nosed Smith & Wesson Model 10 in "The Emerald" (S02E18). It needs to be rubber as Rollin soon gets ahold of it and pistol-whips him with it. In closeup (insert shots), it turns into a Colt Detective Special.

Smith & Wesson Model 10 snub nose revolver - .38 Special. Early Model
Yorgi Petrosian (Michael Strong) with a rubber S&W 10 snub in "The Emerald" (S02E18). Note the solid barrel and the Smith & Wesson-style cylinder release.

Barney with his fully assembled M50/camera in "The Slave: Part 1" (S02E05). Since the receiver was assembled in two pieces (see above), a seam should be visible in this shot.
Willy Armitage with a Madsen M50 in "Operation 'Heart'" (S02E07).
Willy Armitage fires his Madsen M50 in "The Spy" (S02E16).
Lieutenant Dreis (George Sperdakos) with his Madsen M50 in "The Spy" (S02E16).

A prison guard with his K98k in "Trial by Fury" (S02E24). This episode was shot on the redressed sets of Hogan's Heroes, which is ironic because this show has real K98ks but Hogan's Heroes did not.

Janos (Scott Hale) examines the other half of the rifle in in "The Phoenix" (S02E23).
Barney, posing as an investigator with the Internal Security Department, examines the rifle before handing it to Phelps in "The Phoenix" (S02E23). (No one in the episode questions how a black man works as an investigator in the internal security department of an Eastern European country.)

Gun Rack

David Redding (Anthony Zerbe) has a rack of guns in his bomb shelter in "The Photographer" (S02E15).

Redding's gun rack in "The Photographer" (S02E15). There's at least one Remington 870, a Coach Gun, and what appears to be an M1 Garand on the far right.

Ammo in jacket

Jim Phelps has several dozen rounds hidden in the lining of his jacket in "The Photographer" (S02E15). He's there to swap out whatever live rounds David Redding has in his bomb shelter arsenal with paint rounds.

Phelps' jacket in "The Photographer" (S02E15). Paint rounds or not, a jacket lined with that many rounds and shells would not only be absurdly heavy, but immediately noticeable as well.
