I haven't seen the movie yet, plan on it soon, but to anwser your question about the Desert Eagle, it is absolutely legal to own, its no different than any other handgun, other than the fact that the barrel remains in place during the ejection and loading phase, unlike most pistols in which the barrel tilts downward in the rear to aid in loading. As far as price goes, it all depends on where you are, retail for the whole system, the .50ae barrel, .40 and .357mag and bolt for the .357 runs for just over 25 hundred, but if you go with just the .50ae in the 6 inch barrel then your looking at 1250. but thats retail so your looking at a store price closer to 9 hundred, there abouts. If you really want to know about the desert eagle take a look at Magnum Research's web site, pretty informative and they got some cool video clips of their guns in action.

From what I've read in other forums, the silver gun he pulls out is either a Colt or Kimber 1911, with most of the people leaning towards Kimber, from the screen shots I've seen I don't know.

Just got done watching that movie. It sure looks like Glock 18's. Cool how they showed them spraying them in full auto in slow motion. The gun he got out of the safe was a 1911 with a screw on suppressor. It looked like a government length with front cocking serratiions though. Couldn't tell what kind. Lot's of cool guns in that movie. Pretty good movie, but I like anything with Angelina!!!:)

Just went and paused the movie and looked at the 1911 a little closer. It sure looks like a Kimber to me. It doesn't show anything clear enough to be sure, but from what I can tell, it looks like maybe a Kimber custom. Oh, and the suppressor wasn't a screw on, he twisted it and it clicked on.

Seems like any full auto-pistol in a movie in the past 20 years is a Glock 18 except for a few Beretta's (robocop, underworld and that grammaton cleric movie with the batman guy and the dude from braveheart and that black dude from way of the gun.) Sorry can't think of the name right now. :D


Then what did Samuel L Jackson have in Shaft and Pulp fictions. I thought the one in Shaft was a Kahr. Anyone else? I have no idea on pulp fiction guns. What do you think, Glock the dominant movie gun? Not the movies I watch, but I don't watch the guns much, just the movie. Haven't seen the Smiths yet, can't comment.

Watched the movie on DVD about a week ago, after someone else on this forum had asked a similar question. I paused it and advanced it very slowly. One frame seemed to clearly show a four letter word that sure looked like COLT to me.

I have seen Kahrs in a few movies. In "A History of Violence", one of the mobsters had what looked like a full-size black-framed Kahr with a stainless slide. Good PR for them to get the general public familar with their product. While it may simply be up to the director or set manager to choose which firearms are used in movies and by whom, I don't doubt that gun manufacturers would pay money to have their guns featured in movies, and especially if used by the hero. Some years ago I had read that Sig Arms had an agent or representative in Hollywood that promoted the use of Sig handguns in motion pictures. I still see lots of Sigs in movies. I believe Keifer Sutherland used a Sig Pro in '24'.

The Colt is an older stainless XSE thats been modified. If you look closely it even has carbon creation double diamond grips!

I looked it up for another thread we had not too long ago.

The back of the dvd also shows what looks like a Beretta 93R in one of Jolie's hands. Don't remember seeing one in the movie though.

In regards to "THE movie gun," I would say that Berettas are on par with Glocks, if not a bit ahead. Both are recognizeable to many of my otherwise non-gun acquaintenances when they pop up in movies or tv. I think HK's will be the new movie gun in the next few years.

to answer your question about Samuel Jackson, in Pulp Fiction he uses a Colt 1911 in .38 Super. That gun and the one Travolta uses are personal guns belonging to Tarantino, The .38 Super is nice for movies because it will run blanks very well.
In Shaft it's a Kahr.
Honorable mention goes to both Mr and Mrs Smith and to their friend Vince Vaughn for the choice of H&K P-7, one chromed and two blued.

Samuel L.'s pistol was a Star Model B in 9mm, bright chrome with mother-of-pearl stocks. Travolta packed an Auto-Ordnance M1911 (also chromed w/pearl grips).

I had been told over and over that they were the same guns in .38. I have to go and watch it agin now.
Damn! I hate it when I am forced to sit through an incredible movie that I really like!

Haha, Equilibrium.

I think you mean Christian Bale, Sean Bean, and Taye Diggs (actors who are in Equilibrium).

The full auto pistols were modified Beretta 92s. I thought they were fake, but as it turns out they had actual, modified 92s made for the movie that were really select-fire.

Beretta 93-R is the selective fire version of the 92. It has a near useless fold-down handgrip in the front.

Almost as bad as the Stetchkin from USSR.

Johns guns at the end are a pair of Glock 18s with extended 31 round mags. He gives Jane a pair of Beretta 93Rs and tells her, "Watch these. They jam. So watch 'em." That's love.

The 1911 John pulls out in his house is I believe a Colt of some sort. I think the other poster Black Majik is right.

In the US, as far as I know, it is legal to own a desert eagle just as it's legal to own a handgun. In good taste is another matter.

The attached picture is of the 1911s from Pulp Fiction. I took the picture several years back while visiting the National Firearms Museum at the NRA headquarters in Northern Virginia, it had a great exhibit of guns from movies, I think it was called Reel Guns. If you get the chance, visit the museum, it is well worth the visit, not to mention you can bitch at the NRA while you are there. :D And before you jump on me, I am a member!

Is the S&W at the bottom one of the guns from Reservoir Dogs?

Most common movie handguns:
Beretta 92
(Insert brand) 1911
Desert Eagle
(Insert Brand) .38 special

Any others I missed?

That would probably be S&W .38 special...

Colt SAA
Glock 17/18/19

I don't think so...

If I recall correctly it was a Tangfolio (for both). Terrantino has a fascination for this pistol (amoung other things -- like womens feet) as he has featured a Tangfolio in almost every one of his movies. Most recently Kill Bill Volume 2.

nope it was a star b, not a tangy!

The Desert Eagle is overley used imo.

Ever since pulp fiction I have always wanted a High Polish Chrome 1911, with Pearl Grips.


Then I found how much it would cost, then I found out how easily they are scratched and how they look after they are scratched. Then finally decided against it.

in pulp fiction, Samuel L. even SAYS its a 9mm in the script. At the end when he is talking to Honey Bunny, he calls his pistol 'Mr. 9mm'. I don't believe Tarantino would have make a mistake that big.


2nd-- What is the shortie lookin shotgun that Jolie uses when they are fighting in the house??

The gun on her thigh in the 'cover' of the dvd is a Detronics.

I never heard that .38super works well with blank loads. I do know Don Johnson's SFPD Captain Nash Bridges character in Nash Bridges used a ".38 Colt" aka; .38super 1911a1(tricked out by the SEALshop gunsmiths in soCal, ;) )

I think the short barrel .12ga in Mr and Mrs Smith that Jolie uses is a HK/Benelli super 90. I don't think they make those shotguns anymore.
