Shutter Island (2010)

Shutter Island is the 2010 feature film adaptation of the novel of the same name written by Dennis Lehane (Mystic River). Directed by Martin Scorsese, the film stars Leonardo DiCaprio and Mark Ruffalo as Deputy U.S. Marshals who are sent to a psychiatric hospital housed on a small island to investigate the disappearance of a patient.

The following weapons were used in the film Shutter Island:



Smith & Wesson Model 10

Deputy U.S. Marshal Teddy Daniels (Leonardo DiCaprio) carries a Smith & Wesson Model 10 revolver with a 4-inch barrel as his sidearm. In the book and film it has a dent in the barrel where a suspect shot at him. In reality, Teddy's revolver is a toy gun given by the staff of the psychiatric hospital, and breaks easily during the climax of the film.

Colt Detective Special

Deputy U.S. Marshal Chuck Aule (Mark Ruffalo) carries a Colt Detective Special as his sidearm. It can be identified by the grips when he hands the gun to the guards.

Walther PP

The Nazi commandant uses a nickel-plated Walther PP to commit suicide in Dachau concentration camp flashback; Teddy Daniels (Leonardo DiCaprio) moves it away from the commandant to prolong his death. The filmmakers selected the nickel-plated model due to the way it contrasted with the wooden floor of the office despite being historically inaccurate that back during WWII nickel-plated Walthers did not exist yet.
