The handgun Bronson used was a Wildey Magnum, a truly extraordinary semi-automatic pistol made in the town of Warren Conneticut. The pistol was chambered in many different calibers but I believe that the pistol used in the movie was either chambered in 45. Winchester Magnum or the even more powerful 475. Wildey Magnum. I had the opportunity to tour the facility where they are made, and I was given the tour by the man who made them, Wildey Moore. Handling one of the pistols it was evident that they are indeed true works of art. He even had a poster of Death Wish 3 on the wall! The movie potrays them well as extremely accurate and powerful, yet controllable firearms.
