From Russia With
The Walther LP53 is a classic James Bond gun although it never featured in a
Bond movie. The gun, with its distinctive long barrel was the weapon of choice
for James Bond in many movie posters and promotional photographs. The story is
that during a photoshoot with Sean Connery for
Russia With Love, the photographer volunteered his own Walther LP53,
after the PPK wasn't available on the set.
The LP53 is an airgun and can only shoot little lead pellets (although with considerable force). The weapon is 'loaded' by opening it all the way (almost like breaking it in half), load a pellet and close it, building up the airpressure.
In the photos and posters, Bond holds a LP53 with a black grip, although a brown version was also available for this gun.
