- Sleeve gun (a Remington derringer, featured in many episodes). In a few episodes the ejecting/retractable support-arm of the device had other useful gadgets attached to it instead of the derringer, such as a tiny squirt-can containing acid, iron climbing-claws, and various blades.
- Lock-pick in the lapel of the bolero-style jacket.
- Throwing knife in the collar of the jacket.
- Various explosive devices fitted in the jacket's lining, inside his belt (and its buckle), and a secret compartment in his holster.
- A flat metal barbed climbing-spike and a thin, but strong attachable rope or cord that could be shot into a wooden beam or wall from either his derringer or revolver.
- A small hand-held rod with a built-in spring-loaded motor-driven winch. When used in conjunction with his climbing-spike and rope, the rod-winch can either hoist him upwards to a building's roof, for instance, or lower him into a deep pit, the distance depending on the length of rope deployed.
- Extra bullets in his belt buckle.
- A thin, but extremely strong wire flexible enough to be coiled and fitted in the inner lining of the crown of his hat; the wire has multiple uses, and is also capable of sawing through a steel bar.
- Breakaway derringer (featured in numerous episodes). Usually the handle and trigger mechanism is located in the hollowed-out heel of one boot, while the barrel assembly is located in the other boot's hollowed-out heel; the two pieces snap together and lock. Often bullets for this breakaway derringer are dispensed from a secret compartment in his belt-buckle.

- A break-away blow-torch, each piece hidden in each hollowed-out boot heel.
