Friends of Eddie Coyle, The
The following weapons were used in the film The Friends of Eddie Coyle:
WARNING! THIS PAGE CONTAINS SPOILERS!
Remington 870 Police Magnum
During the opening scene, a Wells Fargo bank truck guard carries a Remington 870 when the guards are unloading money into the bank. Treasury agent Dave Foley (Richard Jordan) also carries one when his agents bust Jackie Brown (Steven Keats) during his M16 deal.
Smith & Wesson Model 10 HB
The two Wells Fargo bank truck guards unloading the money from the truck during the opening scene each carry a Smith & Wesson Model 10 HB revolver.
Smith & Wesson Model 27
Jimmy Scalise (Alex Rocco) uses a Smith & Wesson Model 27 during the first bank robbery as one of the thirty guns procured for him by Eddie Coyle (Robert Mitchum) through Jackie Brown (Steven Keats).
Colt Official Police
Artie Van (Joe Santos) uses a Colt Official Police in each of the bank robberies he pulls with Jimmy Scalise's gang. Scalise (Alex Rocco) himself uses one during the second and third bank robbery attempts.
Colt Police Positive
Another bank robber in Scalise's gang carries a Colt Police Positive.
Jackie Brown (Steven Keats) keeps a nickel M1911A1 with white grips as his sidearm of choice, notably when brokering the M16 deal. Unlike other films of the era (such as The Wild Bunch, Dillinger, and Three Days of the Condor), the weapon appears to be a genuine .45-caliber 1911A1 rather than a Star Model B.
One major plot point in the film involves Jackie Brown's sale of five M16 rifles to two aspiring bank robbers for $2,000 (including ammunition). The rifles are often referred to as "machine guns" throughout the film but are correctly identified as M16s more than once.
- Eddie Coyle (Robert Mitchum): "I've never been able to understand a man that wanted to use a machine gun... The best all-around item is the four-inch Smith. You can lift it; she goes where you point it."
Colt Detective Special
One of the Treasury agents with Foley during Jackie Brown's arrest carries a blued first generation Colt Detective Special. A Detective Special is also seen loaded by Jackie into the bag he sells to Eddie.
Smith & Wesson Model 36 Snub
One of the .38-caliber revolvers Jackie sells to Coyle is a snubnose Smith & Wesson Model 36, which Scalise (Alex Rocco) inspects upon delivery.
unidentified bolt-action rifle
One of Foley's Treasury agents carries a scoped bolt-action rifle when Jackie Brown is busted for possession of M16 rifles.
Another of Foley's Treasury agents carries a Remington 870 with wooden furniture during Jackie Brown's arrest.
Coyle's final gun sale to Jimmy Scalise consists of "five Smiths, two Lugers, [and] a .357 Mag", with Coyle remarking about the latter that "you could hold up a bank with that thing yourself", charging $4,500 for the entire set. Despite playing an arms dealer, the Luger P08 is the only weapon Robert Mitchum is seen directly handling.
Smith & Wesson Model 10
One of the "five Smiths" that Coyle sells to Scalise is a Smith & Wesson Model 10 which Scalise inspects then gives to one of his robbers to use in the third bank robbery attempt. Dave Foley (Richard Jordan) also carries one when he arrests Scalise's gang inside the house.
Dillon (Peter Boyle) uses a .22-caliber Arminius HW-7 revolver to murder Eddie Coyle (Robert Mitchum) after the Bruins game. After his young associate complains about the sound, Dillon responds, "That's why I use a .22. I open up a .38 two-incher in here, you'll go right off the road."
