      It's some kind of Smith & Wesson revolver, very likely .357 Magnum, with a Colt-Python-style, non-standard-length barrel. I bet that the plating is not factory-standard, either, but I could be wrong about that.

      Oh, yeah...and he's holding it wrong, too.
      His shot's gonna miss, and its recoil is gonna put a hammer-spur dimple into his hairline.

      What movie is it from?

      In the 70's? Shaft or perhaps Lionel from Sanford and Son would be my guess.

      If the movie was from the 70s or early 80s, or older, then it's probably what Steve said, some kind of heavy-barrel custom S&W (cylinder latch looks S&W-ish). However, a bit later, S&W did make a few L-frame .357 magnum model 686 revolvers with long, 8 and 3/8ths inch barrels. It's kind of a weird camera angle, but I think it's one of those. They aren't very common, and they weren't released until the mid-1980s (estimate?), but they are out there. I do think it's a later model weapon, as the grips look like they are Hogue rubber mono-grips (screw enters from the bottom), and I don't think they were available until the late 80s or early 90s.

      Here's a link to an auction for one, with photos. Long barreled sucker .... could double as a jack handle in a pinch.

      it could be a S&W Model 629 44 Magnum to & if he shoots it the way he holding it not only would it put a dimple in his head it would probley knock his butt out as well

      Main Page - imfdb :. guns in movies :. movie guns :. the internet movie firearms database

      This website has won more bar bets for me concerning firearms in the movies.

      Glad about the bar bets. There was no Colt or Smith .357 (which it looks like) that ever looked like that. This is a fluke. From an arguable "expert".

      One distinguishing feature is the S&W hammer. If it's a real gun as opposed to some fake prop DJ's won the prize. I can tell you the car he's in is 60's or early 70's

      I'd go with the L frame Smith .357 w/8 3/8 barrel.
