Someone should start a similar thread about the gun Leon shoots Holden with at the start of the original movie, which I believe was a 4 barrel COP357 derringer.
The Compact Off-duty Police .357 Derringer is indeed correct. Fun fact, though — the gun didn't officially enter production until 1983...
It might be noted that the prop gun was modified to discharge two barrels at once (upper right, lower left), to provide a more ... impressive muzzle flash (further enhanced with a strobe).
"Leon's Gun" also started off as a bit more futuristic four-barrelled design (still based on the COP .357), but was in the end simplified down to just use the gun without external modifications.
I would expect that if it get stats in the game at all, it will be as a (terrible) four-barrelled .357 Magnum hold-out gun, period — simply what the real-world shooting prop is
, full stop.
That would be the only consistent conclusion, going from Ligan's approach to Deckard's blaster.
But ... yes indeed. Food for a separate thread.
Okay. They actually managed to go further than even I had anticipated.
, "Leon's gun" is indeed a hold-out subcompact ... yes
, it is indeed a four-barrelled Derringer ... yes
, it is indeed in .357 calibre ... AND it fires two barrels at once, just as the filming prop was modified to do for visual effect!!
the most common back-up is a tiny four-barreled subcompact pistol, which packs a punch with two .357 round barrels firing at once
I mean, come ON!
Has this fellow no
independent imagination at all??
