Movie Guns that You'd Like to Have

We all, rightfully so, rag on Hollywood for getting a lot of gun details wrong. However, it can't be denied that there are some pretty cool firearms in some movies. With this in mind, which ones would you like to have?

I personally want, and will ultimately acquire, a Marlin 1895 SBL like the one Chris Pratt carried in Jurassic World. My only alteration from the one on screen is I will have a scout scope mounted in the proper place on QD rings.



I would also like to have a S&W M1917 set up like the one Indiana Jones uses. I think it's just a standard M1917 cut down to 4", so really I just need to check Gunbroker etc for an already mutilated M1917 and go from there.

    General guns showed in movies or those who turned into a character (To gun enthusiasts) by themselves? If guns in general, all those shown in "Saving Private Ryan", "Letters from Iwo Jima"  and "Enemy at the gates" :D

    If the latter from those I can quickly recall, would like a working Han Solo's blaster prop gun from "Star Wars" and a ton of 9mm. or 7.63 Mauser tracer rounds to simulate laser beams, and the Schofield shown in "Unforgiven".

    Audie Murphy had a Colt SAA Sheriff's model with ejector rod that he carried in a high ride (relatively for that time) cant forward speed rig in the short ran tv series Whispering Smith. I want that gun.

    Christian Bale as the gimpy rancher in 310 to Yuma carried a Spencer or a Sharps Carbine? I want it.

    John Waynes Greener from Big Jake.

    Christian Bale's custom  double set trigger butter knife Mauser in Public Enemies.

    Oh heck, I want more n' I can type.

    regarding that marlin,

    my LGS tricked out one in 45-70 for a customer.  Almost like that one pictured but added ghost rings and smoothed up the trigger/action real nice.   squared the forestock and put finger groove like a 1927 M1.

    had the same lever and such too.

    I want some of those guns that never run out of ammo.

    I want the  1 of 1000 original Winchester 73, the H & H 500/450  & the Howdah pistol from Ghost in the Darkness.
    Those just for a start.

    Im watching Colt 45 starring Randolph Scott. One of my favorite western actors as his physical build and persona remind me of my grandfather.

    They have what appear to be first model dragoons. But the really over the top part is they got these big custom Mexican double loop twin gun rigs that hang down past their knees. Good looking guns. I'd like to have them for sure. Not sure when reproductions started coming from Italy??? I think I read once that some Italian outfits bought parts from Colt and assembled them???

    Cool movie ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

    Edit
    Some of the chatcters are using Remington rolling block 50's that the army used way back when.(the pistols)

    I'd prefer it in 450/400 NE vs 500/450 NE though

    Actually, wouldn't mind an M1 either. And of course, gotta name it Charlene!

    I like the M14 wielded by Randy Shughart in Black Hawk Down.

    My SIL has one of those. It is a real shooter, with the original sights. His dad bought it back in the '60's and thought it was war surplus. He was going to butcher it, but thankfully never got around to it.

    I kind of liked those Schofields that the bad guy in the '3:10 From Yuma' re-make had.

    Also, any Sharp's .50 that I have seen - Quigley's was the best, of course.

    Just for grins, I'd like to have a Griswold and Gunnison like the guy in 'Hell on Wheels' had. I know it was a cheap knock-off of the 1851 Colt, but it was about the only 'modern' gun manufactured in the Confederacy, as far as I know.

    I’d like Gus’ cartridge conversion Walker from Lonesome Dove.

    Functional guns? I want one of the Stormtrooper Sterlings, firing live ammo instead of blanks. :) Maybe I could hit better than they could. :smiley:

    I had an FNC, only firearm I've ever had the HAMMER snap in half on. IIRC replacement was nearly $100 (Place in Trussville, AL was distributor). After I fixed it, it went on down the road.
    Bought it just a few weeks before the AWB of '94, tripled my money when I sold it
