Silvio Dante (Steven Van Zandt)
Walther PPK used in Bada Bing parking lot gun battle
Item # P00267
This live firing Walther PPK was used by the character "Silvio Dante" portrayed by actor Steven Van Zandt in the award winning series “The Sopranos”. Mr. Van Zandt can be seen firing the weapon in “The Blue Comet” (Season 6, Episode 20) during the climactic battle in the parking lot of the Bada Bing when Silvio and "Patsy Parisi" (Don Grimaldi) are ambushed by two of "Phil Leotardo’s" (Frank Vincent) hit men as they attempt to drive away. Silvio pulls the Walther from out of his briefcase to return fire and is struck several times by the hit men’s bullets before losing consciousness as Patsy flees into the woods behind the Bing amidst a hail of gunfire. The gun battle in the parking lot of the Bada Bing was a pivotal event in the war between the Soprano and Leotardo families, which was the climactic conflict of the show’s final season
