Initially, Ursula Andress' character was written as a bisexual woman, which was dropped when director Fernando di Leo felt it was "too risky for the audience" and that "people didn't even have the term "bisexual" in their vocabulary at that time [...] No one knew its meaning."
Loaded Guns was filmed at Dear Studios in Rome and on location in Naples.
Loaded Guns was released theatrically in Italy on 18 January 1975 where it was distributed by Alpherat. The film grossed 699.455 million Italian lira on its theatrical run in Italy.
From a retrospective review, Italian film critic and historian Roberto Curti stated that the film was a "failed experiment" noting that most of the films gags are not funny and that the film had a confused plot.
