The first one looks like a Kel-tec to me.


looks very much like the P-32: http://www.kel-tec-cnc.com/p32.html

1st appears to be an NAA Guardian; the second looks like a stainless-steel (or chromed-out) Makarov. In fact, if you look in the first picture, the empty space is the space for the gun in the second pic, and the label says "Makarov SS"

Well, the nameplate where the missing gun is says "Makarov SS", Its hard to make out but its there.

Yep. The gun in the 2nd pic is definitely a makarov.

My guess on #1 is a Rohrbaugh (spelling?), 2nd is definitely a chromed Makarov.

1st is definitely a guardian. Notice the semicircle cutout at the top of the grip, and location of the grip screw.

Absolutely correct

I just saw this movie yesterday again and i was curious enough to figure out the same question.

Such a futuristic movie and theyre still using makarovs. Nice.

Awww, I thought this was a thread about the Michael Caine movie "The Island", now THAT was a good movie!

Gunplay, pirates, gunplay, .50BMG gunplay.

I'm actually a bit surprised, the guy who owns the 2 guns in the movie is some rich guy who designs yachts and motorcycles, has an expensive custom house, an expensive yacht, expensive clothes, expensive car yet owns some cheap surplus gun and a 250 dollar pocket pistol? I'd think for a rich guy he'd have something like a Sig or something expensive :D

I figure the prop department didn't know anything about firearms and figured "oooh that looks expensive" and figured the audience wouldn't notice or care. Maybe guns are banned in the future and he had them illegally or the value somehow went up on Makarovs?

They're plated in white gold.. or some such precious metal...

I really have no idea.
more than likely, guns were banned.

It's the future maybe mak's and guardians are rare. Or maybe it's a Micheal Bane movie from the low end of the bell curve. Let's just hope he does a better job on transformers. Though I already have my doubts about it. Since optimus prime is no longer a cab over and beetle isn't a Volkswagen.
