Police tendered documents to Bankstown Local Court on Monday. 

They claim the object could be a real pistol, an ‘air gun’ or ‘imitation firearm’, Daily Telegraph reported.

Documents claim the eight second video shows Reynolds pulling the object from his waistband before he points it at the camera and ‘racks the slide’. 

Reynolds allegedly smiles after racking the slide a second time and finally pulls the trigger.

The police prosecutor argued Reynolds should not be granted bail given the discovery of the video.

He admitted police had not yet determined if the firearm was real or not.

Reynolds’ lawyer Mohamed Bejjaoui added: ‘The prosecution will have issues in proving the firearm is real,’ he said.

Magistrate Greg Walsh granted Reynolds bail and told the prosecution that police would need to verify if the firearm was real.

If the firearm is real Reynolds could face 14 years imprisonment. He will return to court on November 30.
