MacGyver (1985-1992)

MacGyver was an television adventure series that aired on ABC from 1985 to 1992 and starred Richard Dean Anderson as the title character, a government troubleshooter who uses his wits as well as everyday items to get himself out of precarious situations. The show was also notable for the main character's aversion to shooting guns (attributed to a tragic childhood incident). While the character never was operating weapons (save for the pilot episode), that didn't preclude him from using them in a non-lethal manner. The series would continue in several made for television films and was subsequently "rebooted" in 2016 with a new CBS television adaptation.

The following weapons were used in the television series MacGyver:

Pistols

M1911A1

The M1911A1 is used by several characters in the series.

Taurus PT92AFS

A (sometimes suppressed) Taurus PT92AFS was used by Nicolas Von Leer (Kai Wulff) in "Eye of Osiris" (S6E14). The Taurus was a pistol more readily available to Canadian armorers, so when the production moved to Vancouver in later seasons, it became the gun of choice for most villains and their underlings during seasons 4-7, taking over H&K P9S's duty from season 1-3.

The Heckler & Koch P9S is used by several characters in the series, notably in Season 1's "Last Stand" and "To Be A Man". It frequently appears as the gun of choice of most villians and their underlings during seasons 1-3. It is substituted by the Taurus PT92 and/or Beretta 92F during seasons 4-7.
