    From the books or the movie's? In fact he carried a PPK in .32 ACP , but since the British Intelligence service brought Manurhin's in real life, it would not have been a Walther but the French marked Manurhin. The Beretta would have been a Model 1919 made up unto the 1940's. He also kept a large callber .45 under the dash of his first car ( wrecked in the Moonraker book ), forgot what model car, but it was an old super charged English model. No background on what type of .45, I always assume it was a 1911. Now in some of the later non Ian Fleming movies they had nim outfited with all kinds of guns.

    He was also given/ issued a modified ASP ( Cut down S&W 39, I believe ) in one book. In the Book Moonraker I believe his car was an old Bentley, no longer have the book so it's memory time. Yep,1933 Supercharged Bentley, battleship grey

    RJay, the 45 is referred to as a "long barreled" Colt 45, so I always figgered either a New Service or a SAA with the 7 1/2" barrel.

    In one of 'em, after Fleming quit/died/whatever happened, he has a Super Blackhawk stashed in his car, for long range, so the SAA isn't TOO strange an idea.

    I do believe your right Alpo. Isn't it weird, trying to figure out what a fictional character had hidden under his dash board. I think I need to get out more:D:D:D Sound Guy is right on the Beretta 418 also, in the US the 418 was the Bantam. In the Book , From Russia With Love, he was killed, Ian Fleming was fired of the character. but money speaks very loudly and he had to be brought back from the dead.

    Just following along in Sherlock Holmes' footsteps. He took a dive from Victoria Falls (I believe), and was killed, but the fans raised so much hell that Doyle brought him back.
