I'm hoping to do another retro AR-15 movie clone build. This time, it will be a clone of the XM177s from "The Rock" and other 1990s action movies. The base will be an Olympic Arms CAR-AR (K3B) upper,...

OK, I just watched it myself, and agree - I don't think they're LE6920-pattern carbines. They have 16" barrels that don't have a step (i.e., not M4 GOV-profile), and A1E1 receivers. But they also...

Oh, absolutely - but Glock has had its hits and misses over the years. The primary reason the 19X is still selling, and still in production, is due to its MHS rep. Otherwise, Glock should have phased...

Doesn't matter; protesting is the norm when a major manufacturer loses out on a major DoD contract. When Glock's 19X wasn't selected by the military, the fact that they still sold thousands of those...

I guess the question is - what's their barrel length?

On IMFDB, we generally treat "M4" as a descriptor of a type of firearm resembling a military-issue M4-pattern carbine, same as we do for...

They're definitely equipped with LE stocks, not N1 CAR stocks or the early aluminum stocks (either of which would have been more accurate for the time period).

So it turns out that ISS' Instagram...

So, not that anyone asked for it, but here we go: Real Steyr SPP, and rubber Steyr SPP from the movie "Stratton" (which I purchased from Propstore). Can you tell which is which?

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...

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...
