Congrats. You win everything. Except the guns; those I'm keeping forever. :D

If you look closely, you can also see some signs of the damage from on-set use on the rubber SPP, namely the chip on...

This is a legitimate point; certainly, changing cartridges is a better reason to switch platforms than simply getting a newer platform for the sake of the new. That being said, I don't even think...

I heard, but I'm still of a "I'll believe it when I see it" mentality right now. For as long as I've been a gun geek (25+ years), I've seen too many attempts to replace the basic DI AR which came and...

Movie armorer Instagram accounts

Creating a sticky thread - I'm trying to document all of the Instagram accounts related to movie guns and movie armorers so that we can use those accounts for research/references on IMFDB.

After many years, I'm finally getting a Steyr SPP (yes, a real one). I've wanted one for years because I regard it as an iconic Hollywood machine pistol, but lately, they've been a bit overpriced on...

There may not have been any guns fired in “Pacific Rim”, but that doesn’t mean the weapons which weren’t fired are not real guns. The handguns which appear in the scene where Ron Perlman’s gangsters...

Ah, gotcha. And yeah, I'm not surprised. If DEVGRU still has any 14.5" guns, for example, those are almost surely going to be 5.56 guns, not .300 BLK (though my impression is that 10.5" weapons have...

Really nice - although you didn't want to use the A1E1-style upper? You could have bought one from Brownell's, and it would have matched the receiver style of the Colt 723 carbines that Delta/CAG...
