Blue Caprice (2013)

Blue Caprice is a 2013 independent drama about the relationship between John Muhammad and Lee Boyd Malvo, who are today better known as perpetrators of the 2002 Beltway sniper attacks. The first feature film by director Alexandre Moors, the film focuses on the events leading up their cross country crime spree, which would eventually lead to sixteen dead and nine other wounded, and the twisted father-son relationship between the two shooters.


The following weapons were used in the film Blue Caprice:

Contents


Ruger Speed Six

John (Isaiah Washington) plinks with a Ruger Speed Six early in the film.

A crew member (presumably the armorer), checks the Speed Six in a making-of featurette.

SIG-Sauer P226R

John, Lee (Tequan Richmond) and Ray (Tim Blake Nelson) all handle Ray's stainless SIG-Sauer P226R. Since the film is set no later than 2002, this is an anachronism.

Ray hands Lee his loaded P226R. (Pointing the muzzle of a firearm that is not only loaded, but cocked as well, at yourself seems really unsafe.)
Lee fires the P226R. Ray declares him a natural.
Lee grabs Ray's P226R from his makeshift gun rack. Note that this appears that this appears to be a different P226, since the one above has Hogue wraparound grips, and this one does not.

A crew member (presumably the armorer) prepares the release the slide on the P226 in a making-of featurette.

AR-15 variant

Ray shows Lee and Ray his AR-15 variant, which is eventually used in the Beltway sniper attacks. This particular rifle has an adjustable stock, brass deflector, a forward assist, a 20-in barrel, railed handguard, bipod and holographic sight. In reality, the pair used a Bushmaster XM15. The film takes some liberties with the origin of the rifle, however, implying that the gun is taken from Ray, when in fact it was stolen from a gun shop. The gun shop later had its FFL revoked by the ATF for a history of poor security.

Since their only optic was a holographic sight with no magnification, the snipers had to be close to their victims, usually within 50-100 yards. Note that since the Assault Weapons Ban was still in effect in 2002, the rifle actually used did not have a flash hider.

Lee-Enfield No.1 Mk.III*

Ray has a Lee-Enfield No.1 Mk.III* on his gun rack.
