The Phantom of Morrisville (Fantom Morrisvillu) is a Czechoslovakian 1966 comedy thriller movie by Borivoj Zeman, made as a parody on the genre of mystical thrillers. Emil, a musician from the symphony orchestra, is under strong impression of English thriller novel and imagines himself to be the protagonist of the book, Sir Hannibal Morris. His castle Morrisville is inhabited by the horrible Phantom. Manuel Diaz hunts for treausers of Morrisville, Inspector Brumpby from Scotland Yard hunts for Diaz, and the journalist and amateur detective with recognisable name Allan Pinkerton wants to uncover the mystery of the castle.

The following weapons were used in the film The Phantom of Morrisville (Fantom Morrisvillu):

Unidentified pistol

Diaz' henchman Dixi (Jaroslav Rozsíval) carries an unidentified hammerless pistol. It bears distant resemblance with pistols of Ruby family but it's very vague.

Other Weapons

Diaz' Banjo Gun

In one scene Manuel Diaz (Waldemar Matuska) fires a gun, hidden inside a banjo. The gun is seen firing full auto. The pistol grip with vertical magazine allows to make a guess that the weapon inside is the Sa 25 SMG but it's impossible to confirm or decline this version.

For comparison: Sa 25 - 9x19mm
