Sounds like they used modifications, like a detachable butt stock for stabilty, a scope of choice and probably a longer barrel for that whole accuracy
thing. It wouldn't take much besides 5 min or less to convert a pistol to a half decent modified rifle. The biggest problem would be range, a pistol
cartridge would not be very good beyond 50 - 100 meters. A rifle cartridge would be needed for greater range. I imagine this thing was a "Hollywood"
glamor prop more than an actual weapon. but the idea is possible, multiple caliber firearms exist, just need to swap out bolt types and barrels.
As for a particular pistol, none that I am aware of.
