Shoot First, Die Later (original title Il poliziotto è marcio ("The policeman is rotten")) is a 1974 Italian-French crime movie directed by Fernando Di Leo. Luc Merenda appears as Commissioner Domenico Malacarne, a corrupt cop who works for a crime boss Pascal (Raymond Pellegrin). When Malacarne finds out that the deal with Pascal appears to be a lethal threat for his own father, an old honored police sergeant, he tries to stop this cooperation but it's too late.

The following weapons were used in the film Shoot First, Die Later (Il poliziotto è marcio):


Smith & Wesson Military & Police

A Smith & Wesson Military & Police revolver (or one of its numerous European copies) is used by the first robber during the heist in jewelry store.

Colt revolver

During the arrest of two weapon smugglers one of them, Rabal (Massimo Sarchielli), draws a revolver that appears to be some Colt model. Colt New Service seems to be a good guess.
