Magnum Research Lone Eagle

Charles Hatch (John Finn) uses what appears to be a Magnum Research Lone Eagle in addition to the Beretta 92F and Cheetah in "Hell Hath No Fury" (S4E17). The Magnum Research Lone Eagle is a single shot hunting pistol but is not seen much in media unlike the Thompson Contender which is more prominently featured. Given the distance Hatch has to use it (less than 50 yards) and much smaller size compared to full size sniper rifle it makes for an ideal choice.

Shotguns

Wilson Arms Executive Protection Remington 870

A [Wilson Arms Executive Protection Remington 870] with a pistol grip and vertical foregrip is carried by Det. Ricardo Tubbs (Philip Michael Thomas), in the 4th season of the show.

Info about this custom shotgun: Wilson Arms was the first to modify and sell this "super short" version of the 870. Wilson cuts off the barrel to 7.9 inches (and other barrel lengths are available at customer request), shortens the action bars and magazine tube, moves the barrel ring back, and adds a forward vertical grip on the pump slide which can also be folded flush with the rest of the pump slide if desired. The resulting weapon, called the Executive Protection Shotgun, uses synthetic Pachmayr Vindicator furniture and has no buttstock. Despite the short barrel, the shot spread is not extreme due to the choke used on the barrel. Wilson Arms (not to be confused with Wilson Combat), has been manufacturing firearms for over thirty years. Wilson Arms Co is located in Brunswick, GA.
