The Purge: Election Year is a 2016 horror/thriller that is the third installment in The Purge film series. Set during the 2040 Purge, the film relocates from Los Angeles, California to Washington, D.C. and Frank Grillo returns from the second film as Leo Barnes, now working as armed security for presidential candidate Charlene "Charlie" Roan (Elizabeth Mitchell). Roan advocates the abolition of the Annual Purge and as a result, the NFFA (New Founding Fathers of America) has targeted her for elimination. The film also stars Mykelti Williamson, Joseph Julian Soria, and Edwin Hodge who reprises his role as Dante Bishop.

The following weapons were used in the film The Purge: Election Year:




Beretta 92FS

Kimmy the "Freak Bride" (Brittany Mirabile) and her gang of School Girls wield gold-plated AK-47s with jewel-encrusted stocks. "Uncle Sam" (Roman Blat), a Russian Murder Tourist, is depicted in several posters advertising the film carrying an AK-47 with a Stars and Stripes flag pattern (ironic, the AK being a weapon of Soviet-Russian origin); although he wields it in the film as well, it is barely visible and very hard to make out in the commotion of the scene. One of Bishop's men is also seen with an AK-47. Some Crips gangsters are also seen wielding AK-47s.

"We love you America! America is the greatest country in the world!" "Uncle Sam" taunts Barnes and Roan with his Stars and Stripes-patterned AK-47 shouldered, surrounded by the rest of the Russian Murder Tourists. Although featuring prominently in posters, this particular AK is barely visible in the film, and very easy to miss during the commotion of this scene.


Dante Bishop (Edwin Hodge) is seen armed with an AKMS. Several of his men are also armed with the AKMS. A Crip gangster can be seeing with an AKMS slung on his back.
