"Harley Davidson and the Marlboro Man" (1991)


Magnum Research Inc. Mark VII Desert Eagle

Harley Davidson (Mickey Rourke) obtains this .44 Magnum Desert Eagle near the beginning from the thug holding up the gas station. He then gives it to Marlboro (Don Johnson) as a birthday present, who uses it many times throughout the rest of the movie.

Smith & Wesson Model 686

Glock 17

LAPD officer Virginia Slim (Chelsea Field) carries a Glock 17 as her duty pistol and draws it when she pulls Marlboro over despite Glocks not being approved for LAPD service till 2002. Note: It was hinted in the beginning this film is set in the not too distant future, so it is possible they were using the correct sidearm, for the future time.

John Taffin mentions in one of his books ("big bore handguns" or "big bore sixguns") that the Ruger used in the movie was customized by gunsmith Andy Horvath. It seems that someone from the movie's crew read an article by Taffin about his own Ruger, built by Horvath. The producers tried to Borrow Taffin's revolver but he declined and suggested them to contact Horvath. The gunsmith then built several revolvers for the movie and (reportedly) for Don Johnson's and Mickey Rourke's personal use. It is doubtful that the revolvers used in the movie were actually converted to .454 Casull.
