Favorite Movie Guns

Which ones are yours?

Captain Malcolm Reynolds (Nathan Fillion) carries as his signature sidearm the "Moses Brothers Self-Defense Engine Frontier Model B", a Taurus Model 85 revolver completely covered by a brass casting which makes it look like an semi-auto handgun. The look of the weapon is based on the Volcanic repeaters used in the Civil War (pictured below) as explained by TV show and film creator Joss Whedon in the visual companion. The same prop gun was used for the feature, but given to a new prop house who made the clip straight on the bottom, and bulked up the right side plate and added a spring loaded rear sight.

The Marines of the USCMC (United States Colonial Marine Corps) famously carry the M41A Pulse Rifle as their standard issue weapon. In the film, the weapon is described as a futuristic assault rifle with a magazine capacity of 99 rounds of 10x24mm caseless armor-piercing ammunition with a pump action 30mm grenade launcher mounted underneath the barrel. The pulse rifle was constructed from an M1A1 Thompson submachine gun fitted with a cutdown Remington 870 shotgun underneath with the heat shield and foregrip of a SPAS 12 covering it. At the end of the film, Ripley (Sigourney Weaver) fastens one of these rifles to an M240 Flamethrower in her attempt to rescue Newt (Carrie Henn).

A hand held version of the GE M134 Minigun (six barreled 7.62x51mm NATO) with a hand guard adopted from the M60, nicknamed 'Ol Painless'. Fictional, of course, as you couldn't carry the necessary power supply, all the ammo, and withstand the recoil necessary to operate this weapon on the move.

Gonna have me some fun,...gonna have me some fun,... :)

Since my favorite is posted (minigun), I'll have to go with my #2:

I think the AMT is a complete POS (at least the longslides normal little brother version Hardballer), and the laser way to unwieldy even then, but it still is an iconic movie gun.

Sad thing is, that pistol has been condensed down into what is simply the norm these days:

Such is progress.
