Reindeer Games (released under the title Deception in the UK) is a 2000 heist film starring Ben Affleck as Rudy Duncan, an ex-convict who is coerced into helping in robbing a casino in Michigan that he used to work at by a psychotic trucker (Gary Sinise). Reindeer Games was director John Frankenheimer's final theatrical movie.


The following weapons were used in the film Reindeer Games:

SPOILERS.jpg WARNING! MAJOR SPOILERS!!!


Handguns

Colt Python

Merlin (Clarence Williams III) carries a 6" Colt Python .357 revolver (with a stainless finish) in the scene where Gabriel tells him to shoot Rudy.

Glock 22

Gabriel is seen in many scenes carrying a Glock 22 in .40 S&W, which is also used at the end of the movie by Ashley (Charlize Theron). It seems to be a Glock 22 based on its muzzle diameter, which appears too large to be 9mm.

Smith & Wesson 5906

Merlin (Clarence Williams III) briefly holds a Smith & Wesson 5906 (which is not seen very closely or very clearly) in one scene.

Beretta 92FS Inox

Pug (Donal Logue) uses a pair of Beretta 92FS Inox pistols during the casino heist. One of these pistols is also visible in the weapons storage compartment in Gabriel's big rig.

Pug blasts open the door to the vault (a pretty low-security vault, frankly) with his two Beretta Inoxes...
...only to be blasted by guards inside. He is thrown backwards, still firing his Berettas.

Rudy's Beretta 92FS Water Pistol

When Gabriel's gang carries out the casino heist, Rudy convinces them to take him along. Gabriel doesn't want to give Rudy a real gun, so he instead gives him a plastic water pistol shaped like a Beretta 92FS. The prop itself seems to be an inexpensive airsoft Beretta 92FS that has been dressed up to look more like a squirt gun, as there aren't many (if any) water pistols in real life which bear such a close resemblance to real guns.

Beretta 92FS - 9x19mm
Gabriel threatens Rudy with the Beretta 92FS water pistol, before he squirts him and Rudy realizes what the gun really is.

Apparently having the ability to predict the future, Rudy decides to pour rum into his water pistol.
Rudy points his water pistol at Merlin after the two have been in a scuffle, not realizing he picked up this gun instead of a Taurus PT92 dropped by a guard. Apparently, Rudy is unable to tell the weight difference between a plastic pistol and a real gun!

Rossi Model 971

During the casino heist, Ashley (Charlize Theron) carries a snub-nose Rossi Model 971. The revolver also is held by Nick (James Frain).

Taurus PT92

Most of the guards in the casino carry Taurus PT92s as their sidearms.

Taurus PT92 - 9x19mm
A guard points a Taurus PT92 at Merlin before surrendering. In the theatrical release of the film, the guard's gun is empty despite the fact that the only gunfire thus far has come from Gabriel and his men firing their weapons into the ceiling to intimidate everyone. However, the director's cut of the film reinstates a shootout between the robbers and the casino security prior to this, thereby explaining why the guard's pistol is out of ammo. Apparently when the shootout scene was deleted from the theatrical cut no one noticed the goof that had been created.
Rudy spies a dropped Taurus PT92 on the floor and tries to go for it...
...but stops when Merlin fires a shotgun blast into the floor dangerously close by.


SIG-Sauer P226

Rudy Duncan (Ben Affleck) briefly wields a nickel-plated SIG-Sauer P226 during the casino heist, apparently after capturing it from a guard. He is forced to surrender the weapon after Gabriel and Ashley corner him.

Shotguns

Remington 870

The first weapon seen in the movie is a Remington 870 fitted with a Surefire forend, which is carried by a corrections officer in the tower.

Remington 870 (Butler Creek Foregrip)

Later on, when Gabriel and Merlin are taking weapons from the storage compartment in the semi trailer, it is possible to see a custom Remington 870 fitted with a choke and an unusual-looking Butler Creek "hand lock" forend (this same shotgun was used by Jean Claude Van Damme in Timecop and Byron Mann in the movie Crying Freeman).

Gabriel and Merlin select weapons from a storage compartment in the big rig. Visible next to the custom Mossberg 500 Compact is a Remington 870 fitted with a Butler Creek tactical forend (barrel pointed upwards).

Franchi PA3/215

For much of the movie, Gabriel (Gary Sinise) carries a Franchi PA3/215 as his weapon-of-choice. In one scene of the film, Rudy Duncan (Ben Affleck) briefly gets a hold of the PA3.

After Ashley falls beneath the ice on a frozen lake, Rudy dives in and uses the PA3 to shoot his way out. Notice how this weapon has a different foregrip to the one seen in the images above.

Mossberg 500

Merlin (Clarence Williams III) is armed with a custom shorty Mossberg 500 during the casino heist. The shotgun is fitted with forward and rear pistol grips, a heat shield, and extra shell holder. It is also seen in the weapons storage compartment in Gabriel's big rig. This seems to be the exact same shotgun that was used by Kevin Costner in 3000 Miles to Graceland.

Ithaca 37

A sawed-off Ithaca 37 shotgun is carried by Jumpy (Danny Trejo) during the casino heist. This gun is also visible in the weapons storage compartment in Gabriel's big rig.

Rifles

Remington 7400

Gabriel (Gary Sinise) uses a Remington 7400 while chasing Rudy and Ashley through a forest. It should be noted that Sinise highly exaggerates the recoil of this weapon when firing it.

Olympic Arms K23B

An Olympic Arms K23B compact assault rifle is used by Gabriel (Gary Sinise) during the casino heist. This weapon is also used by Jack Bangs (Dennis Farina), akimbo with his Uzi. The version used in the film is the flat-top model; Gabriel uses it with the carry handle removed and no additional sighting (which is sure to make aiming a great deal more difficult).

An Olympic Arms K23B similar to the CAR-15s seen in Reindeer Games. The one in the movie has the M4A1-style flat top receiver with the carry handle removed, whereas this gun has an A2 receiver and the newer-style collapsible stock, but the barrel and forearm are identical.

Steyr AUG A1

A 16" Steyr AUG A1 is visible in the weapons storage compartment in Gabriel's big rig.

Submachine Guns

Cobray M11/9

When Jack Bangs (Dennis Farina) opens his "Pow Wow" safe, he pulls out a pair of submachine guns and starts spraying Gabriel's crew with automatic weapon-fire. One of the subguns he draws is a converted Cobray M11/9, which is only seen very briefly (and not clearly) before he drops it and switches to his Uzi.

Jack Bangs pulls his submachine guns out of the "Pow Wow" safe. The Cobray M11/9 is visible (blurry) in his right hand, the muzzle of the Uzi is visible in his left.

IMI Uzi

The other of Jack Bangs' (Dennis Farina's) two submachine guns is a full-size Uzi, which he uses at one point akimbo with Gabriel's Olympic Arms K23B.
