Last Action Hero
Last Action Hero is a 1993 action comedy starring Arnold Schwarzenegger as Jack Slater, an action movie hero whose movie world is invaded by a real life kid through the use of a magical ticket. Despite being directed by John McTiernan (Die Hard), the film was a disappointment at the box office (in part due to bad reviews as well as the film being released around the same time as Steven Spielberg's megablockbuster Jurassic Park). However, in keeping with the heightened reality of Slater's world, a ridiculous amount of firearms are featured in the film.
The following weapons were used in the film Last Action Hero:
IMI Desert Eagle Mark VII
Jack Slater (Arnold Schwarzenegger) uses an IMI Desert Eagle Mark VII chambered in .44 Magnum throughout the film as his weapon of choice. It is not a .50AE model as previously believed, and the bore diameter is too large to be a .357 Magnum model.
Officers in the opening sequence are armed with Beretta 92FS handguns. The officer to the left outside cousin Frank's house is also armed with a Beretta 92FS.
Beretta 92FS Inox
A stainless Beretta 92FS Inox is seen in Slater's glove compartment.
Smith & Wesson 5906
A Smith & Wesson 5906 with adjustable sights falls out of Slater's glove compartment.
When at Slater's apartment, he fires into his closet with what appears to be a nickel Beretta Cheetah handgun.
Smith & Wesson 645
A Smith & Wesson 645 is seen sitting in Slater's glove compartment.
Slater tosses an M1911A1 off of his personal portable arsenal called "himself" in the opening scene with The Ripper.
Smith & Wesson 669
Slater tosses what appears to be a Smith & Wesson 669 to the ground when facing the Ripper.
Slater pulls a Colt Mustang off his ankle holster in the opening scene with The Ripper.
Danny decides to apparently take a SIG-Sauer P230 out of the glove compartment, and uses it to hold up John Practice (F. Murray Abraham) before he pulls it from his hands. Practice takes it from Danny and later tries to kill him and Slater with it.
Bren Ten "Peregrine Falcon"
Custom Dan Wesson target revolver
Benidict (Charles Dance) uses a custom .357 Dan Wesson Revolver target pistol. It features a muzzle break compensator on the end of the barrel to dissipate recoil and improve accuracy. It also has large, hand-hugging target grips, and adjustable target sights. Benedict says that caliber of this revolver is 11 mm, but .357 is in fact ca. 9 mm.
A snub-nose, nickel plated Colt Python is carried by one of Benedict's thugs and is taken by Whitney (Bridgette Wilson) after she kills him. Another thug knocks it from her hands to the thug who can't catch, who not surprisingly, doesn't catch it, letting it roll into the kitchen. When Slater is shot with a shotgun in the vest, he falls and picks this gun up to shoot the man back.
Smith & Wesson Snubnose
Slater pulls a Smith & Wesson revolver off his person as he reveals what a walking arsenal he is in the opening scene with The Ripper.
Some of Benedict's thugs in Slater's house are armed with TEC-9s. The man in Slater's closet is armed with a TEC-9 with a stainless barrel shroud. The rest are described in "The Funeral" section. They are noted as TEC-9s and not the full-auto TEC-DC9s because of the shroud mounted sling loop, not featured on the TEC-DC9. They were most likely converted to full-auto for the film.
The closet assassin also holds a Kimel AP-9, a 9mm 'assault style' pistol that closely resembles the TEC-9/DC-9 series of guns.
M3A1 "Grease Gun"
When Danny day dreams about Jack Slater (Arnold Schwarzenegger) as Hamlet, he is seen firing a MAC-11 briefly before it switches to a MP5K. A thug in the red Ford pickup is also seen firing a MAC-11 from the right side window. They are noted as .380 MAC-11s based on their size, but then again, Arny and this thug are pretty big dudes.
Heckler & Koch MP5K
Slater is seen using a Heckler & Koch MP5K in Danny's daydream of Hamlet.
Heckler & Koch SP89
One of the thugs on the pickup chasing Slater is seen using an Heckler & Koch SP89 mocked up as a MP5K. One of Benedict's thugs is also seen using an SP89 as well.
Heckler & Koch MP5A3
A SWAT team member in the opening scene is seen armed with a Heckler & Koch MP5A3 fitted with a Surefire-dedicated foreend weaponlight. Another MP5 is seen in "The Funeral Scene".
Heckler & Koch HK33
The assassin in Slater's closet has an Heckler & Koch HK33 slung over his back.
At the opening sequence, SWAT officers are seen armed with what appears to be Colt Commando rifles, one of which is fitted with an M203 grenade launcher. The Ripper throws one off the roof along with its user after emptying it into the police vehicles below. The weapons' muzzles aren't seen so a 100% positive ID is not possible.
A number of LAPD SWAT officers are seen with M16A1 rifles at the beginning of the film.
The SWAT officer who gets kicked by Slater is seen with a Ruger Mini-14 with black furniture and a Laser Products Corporation (later Surefire) laser sight. This laser sight is easily distinguished by the proprietary LPC "clamp" as well as the actual sight's "bell-shaped" end. This particular Ruger appears to be the same rifle briefly seen in Beverly Hills Cop II. The officer is portrayed by Billy Lucas, a friend and stunt-double to Arnold Schwarzenegger.
Steyr AUG A1
One of the SWAT officers at the beginning of the film is seen armed with a Steyr AUG A1.
Smith & Wesson 3000
The thug who is later seen with a Winchester 1300 is first seen with a Smith & Wesson 3000 Shotgun when they confront them at the house.
One of Benedict's thugs is armed with a Winchester 1300 shotgun. A female LAPD undercover officer at Slater's station is also seen with one.
Sawed-off Stoeger Uplander
The other thug who aims the gun at Skeezy at the front door is armed with a Sawed off Stoeger Uplander shotgun. The same guy shoots Slater in the vest with this shotgun, before being blasted with the Colt Python snub-nose.
Although hardly seen, one of Benedict's thugs is seen carrying a Franchi SPAS-12 when they confront them at the house. The thug is then seen using a TEC-9 when he's taken out by Slater.
Mossberg 500 Bullpup
One of Benedict's thugs is seen holding a Mossberg 500 Bullpup.
Several SWAT officers at the beginning are seen holding Mossberg 590 shotguns.
Slater is seen riding a horse while carrying an M60 slung over his shoulder in Danny's daydream of the Shakespearean play Hamlet.
The helicopter that fires at Slater in the elevator is armed on one side with two Browning M1919 machine gun mock ups.
Short barreled M134 Minigun
A short-barreled GE M134 Minigun can be seen mounted on the side door of the black Toyota Previa Van for a few seconds. Another short-barreled M134 is seen mounted on a helicopter in a continuity error.
Mk II Handgrenade/knife
Slater pulls out a Mk 2 hand grenade to threaten The Ripper but he calls his bluff and orders Jack's son to pick up the grenade. A hidden blade pops out of the grenade conveniently (because everyone has a grenade knife right?), and stabs the Ripper in the leg. Fact: The grenade prop was composed of three basic designs. A regular dummy grenade, a grenade with a pop-out knife (noted by the obvious knife tip sticking out of the grenade in one shot), and a leg harness for the actor to wear to make it look like the knife was stuck in his leg.
The Funeral Scene
One scene in the film that requires its own section is the funeral scene, where an entire mob family is attending the memorial service of Leo "The Fart". Everyone in the family pulls out a gun when Slater tries to take Leo from the funeral, unaware his body is loaded with a nerve gas bomb. Guns already on the page are list here again to save space.
Benedict's Gun Room
Benedict is seen going into a recreation room filled with several rifles and handguns when he removes one of his false eyes.
