Incomplete Tag

To clarify, I added the "Incomplete" tag due to the M16/M203 combo being listed, but not having screenshots. That should be all that's needed to complete the page.--PistolJunkie 23:54, 9 February 2011 (UTC)

It also looks like in the drug raid scene there is a Winchester 1300 shotgun used. --2ndChoiceName (talk) 02:14, 3 February 2013 (EST)


Unknown Pistol (Possibly Beretta or Taurus?)

There's one scene where Frank Lucas prepares to confront Detective Trupo by loading and pocketing what appears to be either a Beretta or Taurus automatic, but the shots are too blurry/not at the right angles to tell for sure. Since both the Beretta 92F and Taurus PT92 were first produced in 1983 and the film takes place around 13 years earlier, either of these guns would be anachronisms. One could argue it was an older Pre-F Beretta 92, but even the earliest model, the original Beretta 92, was first produced between 1975 and 1976 in limited numbers, still around 3 or 4 years before the time period of the film. --Caldwellb734 (talk) 15:13, 8 December 2015 (EST)

Beretta 92FS - 9x19mm
Taurus PT92AF (blued) - 9x19mm
























Frank Lucas (Denzel Washington) retrieves an automatic from a dresser drawer (Apologies for the blurry shot).
Frank appears to keep the weapon in the drawer with the magazine removed, but with a round in the chamber as he racks the slide back and a shell ejects before he inserts a magazine and drops the slide forward. The cutaway slide of the Beretta and Taurus automatics can clearly be seen here.
