Just saw part of the movie yet again, seems they repeat it as much as Star Wars and Indiana Jones every weekned, but I don’t get to recognize all the weapons he pulls when he first arrives to “Barter Town” and surrenders his guns:
Theres a Mauser Broomhandle, that’s clear enough.
Sawed of shotgun, don’t know brand or caliber, looks 12 ga.
Then there’s a S&W revolver, hard to tell what model. Is it a 357 or a 44?
He also pulls out a couple of knives, a crossbow, and a big, kind of round thing, looks kind of like a grenade.
Anyway, anyone identified all that stuff? :)

A Ruger Mini 14/AC556? with old spec underfolding stock used by 'Ironbar'.

A bolt action rifle covered with tribal decorations but has stock snapped off.

An Enfield .303 in the holster of a motorbike sidecar during the train chase scene.

I still like the Road Warrior --but there's only a shotgun and a pistol but not
enough ammo for either. However, there's plenty of HE to blow up the entire
FOB when the last convoy leaves.

Not to forget the C02 powered 'Nordenfelt gun' mounted on the pickup truck that shoots darts at the Gyrocopter.

Aunty Entities guards were armed with: pump-action shotguns,double-barrelled,sawed-offs,(I've heard that one was an 870 and the other a Mossberg 500.),various crossbow types and improvised weapons.Ruger M14 was featured,as a was the Enfield and M1 Carbine.

Max,himself:Mauser C96(Similar to Mario Bubba Zanetti's one in MM1,I wonder if he took it from Zenetti's corpse.)various revolvers,possibly .38s,.357s or .44s.That was before he had his guns confiscated,from him,by Batertowns security force.

Forget the guns of Mad Max, I like the vehicles. Where can I get a Cow Car?

It's been a LONG time since I saw this film, but my recollection is that the DA revolver was a Colt, likely a Trooper or similar model, and the M1 Carbine had it's stock, but had a stick tied onto it, and he "worked around" the stick to fire the first shot(s) from it, then broke the stick off the butt.



Who has a copy on DVD that can answer the questions for sure?
