This question is really nagging me.

What movie and actor was it where the action-hero guy grabbed a (Beretta???) held by the bad guy and disassembled it in an instant right in the bad guy's hand?

Was that one of the Steven Seagal movies?

Lethal Weapon...3? I think. Maybe 4. Jet Li takes apart Mel G's gun.

Edit: It's Lethal Weapon 4.

There's a similar scene in the first Bourn ID movie where Damon takes apart a Swiss cop's Sig(?)

Pause right before the move when all three of them have their guns to each others' heads. There is one place about 25 seconds into the video where you can see the left side of Gibson's gun. If you zoom in you will note that the takedown lever is already in the down (disassemble) position.

Found this still on another site.

That trick won't work on a Sig. The slide has to be back so that the latch can rotate. There's a round cut in the slide to allow it to turn.

The round cut is visible on the slide of the center pistol, right above the forward edge of the frame.

It does work on a Beretta 92. It's also noteworthy that it does not matter where the slide is, forward, back, anywhere in between. If you push the slide back, the shooter will resist, and the slide is easily pushed out of battery. You actually don't have to be all that quick to strip the slide if you do it right. You certainly do not to have the latch turned down already. More than likely they did it that way so Gibson didn't get his finger broken if he had it inside the trigger guard.

My memory is broken! .. there was this movie in the 80s where this unsat white cop gets trained in the ways of shaolin by a really old chinaman. In short order, the chinaman trains the cop and they even live together while training which is rather humorous.. I remember this part where the cop was balancing way up in the air on some bamboo and doing some pretty amazing, though awkward jumps and balancing acts..

I'm thinking the disassemble-move was performed in this movie too ... danged if I can remember the name of it... I keep wanting to say buckaroo bonzai, but that wasn't it, the title contained the name of the main character I think ...


Dang it! :banghead:

I'm assuming it was a Sig, but at any rate he took the pistol apart in the process of disarming the cop.

Ahh, Blockbuster.com saves the day!

The movie I was trying to remember is
Remo Williams: The adventure begins (1985 release)

Gonna' have to go rent this now to see if my memory was correct :D

The Korean rolls a combat commander upside down, ejects the mag, rolls the rounds out I think, he doesn't yank the slide.

I always wanted a sequel, as I remember reading the paperbacks in the 80s.

I'm not positive but I think you have to drop the mag on a Beretta 92fs before you can pull the slide off. I'll have to get my brothers and try since I had a momentary lapse of reason and sold mine. :banghead: I miss that gun.

You're looking for Remo Williams: The Adventure Begins (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0089901/).

Edit:
D'oh! didn't see that you had already found it!

Lord, here's an obscure reference:

Robert Conrad did this act back in the pilot for an old TV show called "Charlie Hannah", back in the 80's. If I recall correctly, he called the gun a "cheap piece of crap", took it apart, and said "look, it falls apart right in your hand!" I do remember he used two hands, though.
