Hell Comes to Frogtown is a 1988 post-apocalyptic action movie directed by Donald G. Jackson and R.J. Kizer and starring Roddy Piper as Sam Hell. The story is set in post-nuclear America where most people are infertile. A nomadic traveller Sam Hell is a rare exception, so he is an object of interest of Medtech, the medical branch of the government where only women are in power. Together with Spangle (Sandahl Bergman), a medical expert, and Centinella (Cec Verrell), a fierce soldier, Sam is sent on mission to Frogtown, the dwelling of froglike mutants who have recently captured a group of fertile women. Sam have to release them and then make the work of breeding stock. At least the first part of the mission doesn't make him happy.
The following weapons were used in the film Hell Comes to Frogtown:
Desert Eagle Mark I
Captain Devlin (William Smith) carries a Desert Eagle Mark I. Later his pistol is used by Sam Hell (Roddy Piper).

but there is no way to prove or disprove this guess.

Centinella's (Cec Verrell) personal sidearm is a Micro Uzi SMG, fitted with barrel extention and some kind of sighting device to make it look more futuristic.

Mossberg 500 (with pistol grip)
Numerous Frog Guards are armed with Mossberg 500 shotguns with pistol grips and wooden furniture. Sam Hell (Roddy Piper) and Spangle (Sandahl Bergman) use captured shotguns.
