Enemy Gold is a 1993 action movie about a team of 3 Federal agents, Chris Cannon (Bruce Penhall), Mark Austin (Mark Barriere) and Becky Midnite (Suzi Simpson), who are suspended by corrupt official Dickson (Alan Abelew), for excessive force during a raid on a location of drug lord Santiago (Rodrigo Obregón).
With too much time on their hands, the three set off to find a gold treasure hidden by Confederate forces during the Civil War. This sets off a race for the treasure between the Federal agents and Santiago who chases them together with his female assassin Jewel Panther (Julie Strain) culminating in a finale in the Louisiana swamps.
The movie was directed by Christian Drew Sidaris, the son of Andy Sidaris, as part of Andy’s “Bullets, Bombs and Babes” (a.k.a. “L.E.T.H.A.L. Ladies”) film series. These action movies were predominantly filmed on Hawaii and featured a cast mostly made up of Playmates in roles of secret agents.
The following weapons were used in the film Enemy Gold:
Desert Eagle Mark I
Both Santiago (Rodrigo Obregón) as well as his top assassin Jewel Panther (Julie Strain) carry and use a black Desert Eagle Mark I, distinguishable by the "teardrop" shape of its safety button.
Magnum Research Desert Eagle MK I - .357 Magnum

Dan Wesson Model 15-VH
Mark Austin (Mark Barriere) carries a chrome Dan Wesson Model 15-VH. It is easily distinguished as a Dan Wesson revolver by the typical cylinder latch just ahead of the cylinder.

Orion flare gun
An essential scene in any Sidaris movie: stuff being blown up with an 12 Gauge Orion flare gun. In this movie, Jewel Panther uses one on a gasoline storage shed.

Norinco Type 56-1
During the shootout in the swamps, both Jewel Panther as well as Slash (Ron Browning) use the Norinco Type 56-1 recognizable by the hooded front sight. It also has a slanted compensator.

Colt Model 1878 (reproduction)
Rip is using what appears to be a Colt Model 1878. It is seen too brief for correct identification, but it is probably the same Colt shotgun used in other Andy Sidaris movies.

Barnett Wildcat crossbow
Agents Becky and Ava use the same Barnett Wildcat crossbow with pistol grip that shoots arrows with explosive tips. In one scene, Jewel Panthers picks it up for a few moments.
