The Hit is a 1984 crime drama directed by Stephen Frears (The Grifters, The Queen) starring John Hurt, Terence Stamp, Laura del Sol, and in his very first feature film, Tim Roth. The film was shot almost entirely on location in Spain and features Spanish firearms almost exclusively.

The following weapons were used in the film The Hit:

Llama Comanche

Myron (Tim Roth) carries a Llama Comanche for most of the film. Braddock (John Hurt) later takes it and tosses it away.

"9mm C" (for "9mm Corto") can be seen in this closeup. ("Corto" is Spanish for "short", and "9mm Short" is another name for .380 ACP.)

Star Model C

Braddock carries a Star Model C as a backup weapon.

Willie Parker's bodyguard Juan (Manuel de Benito) is armed with an M1911-type pistol, possibly a Star Model B. It's only seen very briefly.

Unidentifiable revolver

A British plainclothes officer checks his revolver in the prologue. It makes only a brief appearance, and given the glare of the windshield, proper identification is pretty much impossible. It appears to be some sort of side-break revolver.
