    Trivia: Throughout the movie, "Dr. No," James Bond (007) is seen handling and using a pistol referred to as a Walther PPK. But the props actually used in the film were three different model pistols. What were they? Guesses are allowed.

        In the book Bond started out with a Beretta with a skeletal grip in 25ACP. It was traded in for a Walther PP. He also had a suppressed Browning 1910.

          Walther PPK-380,Beretta 418-25Acp and I think a S&W.(Cal?)in his A-Martin.

            And the answer is...(drum roll)...the first incorrect prop is the Walther PP that is given to Bond in exchange for his Beretta. It is erroneously referred to as a Walther PPK, a slightly smaller version of the Walther PP. Bond actually uses that Walther PP throughout the movie.
            Then, in the scene where Prof. Dent tries to kill Bond in his hotel room, Bond shoots Dent with an FN Mauser 1910 fitted with a suppressor, supposedly his Walther PPK, but the props dept. did not have a suppressor to fit the Walther.
            Then, in the shooting scene on the beach of Crab Key Island, Bond is seen shooting at the dragon tank with a Colt 1911, but after a few shots, it morphs back into his Walther PP.
            Finally, in the book, Bond surrenders a Beretta Model 418 in exchange for the Walther, but in the movie, Bond is seen giving up a Beretta Model 34 or Model 35 to his boss.

              The other James Bond movie the man with the golden gun was a 45 revolver with added attachments.

                  Well, I'm almost certain I read in a recent issue of American Rifleman that a look-a-like PPK bb gun pistol was used as a prop in one of the films. I guess that wasn't the intent of the question.

                    Carl - I get this kind of info on www.imfdb.org
                    Great site. You can look up all the movie guns.
                    They are listed alphabetically by movie title, by actor's name and by make and model of gun.
                    Try it. You'll like it.

                      I'm not sure, but I think a pellet gun was depicted in Bond's hand in one of the posters.

                        Must confess I was more interested in the female props than the firearms. Kindest Regards

                          Hap if that's the case you'll love "For Your Eye's Only". The girl on the movie poster with Roger Moore started life as Barry Kenneth Cossey. He then became Caroline Cossey AKA Tula. She wasn't a love interest in the movie rather one of the girls. I guess once you put Bond on a poster with a Pellet Gun anything goes.
                          PS I had a friend a commercial artist at the original shoot. He said Tula had to wear her bikini bottom back wards for some reason.
