Q: What weapons did Crockett use?
A:n the pilot episode, Sonny used a Sig-Sauer P220 in .45 caliber. During the first two seasons, he used a Bren 10 which was a stainless steel 10 mm. It was manufactured by Dornhaus and Dixon, but it was prone to parts breakage and magazines were hard to get and cost over $100 a piece. The company went out of business after about a year.
Starting with the third season, Sonny used a Smith & Wesson 645 in .45 caliber. Smith & Wesson had just introduced this new model. It was also made of stainless steel. He carried it in a Galco Miami Vice Holster. Smith & Wesson discontinued that model and replaced it with the model 4506. It was this gun that he used for the last season. If you want a good view of the Bren 10, watch the “Glades” episode and also the “One Way Ticket” episode. Sonny also carried a backup gun which was a Detonics CombatMaster in .45 caliber. It can be seen in the bar scene shootout in the “Prodigal Son” episode. He carried it in an ankle holster on his left leg.
