The Weapon is a British 1956 crime thriller directed by Val Guest. Street urchins find a pistol in the rubble of a destroyed building in post-war London. A boy accidentally kills another one and goes on the run. This gun turns out to be a clue in a a ten-year-old murder case.

The following weapons were used in the film The Weapon:

US Army Capt. Mark Andrews (Steve Cochran) owns a nickel plated compact Webley RIC.

Webley RIC "Model 86" - .455 Webley. This version of RIC is very similar to the screen gun.

Iver Johnson Safety Automatic Hammerless

When a criminal Joshua Henry (George Cole) pursues Erik Jenner in search of the pistol, he is armed with a hammerless top-break revolver. Iver Johnson Safety Automatic seems to be a best guess, based on the form of the frame.
