Savage Beach is a 1989 action movie revolving around a gold treasure hidden on a Pacific island by a Japanese general in the last days of World War II. Forty years later, in his final moments he reveals the location to what he believes are Japanese secret agents.
This sets of a race for the gold between several gangs of criminals and two blond federal agents Donna (Dona Speir) and Taryn (Hope Marie Carlton) who are caught in between as they have to make an emergency landing on the Pacific island.
The movie was directed by Andy Sidaris as part of his “Bullets, Bombs and Babes” (a.k.a. “L.E.T.H.A.L. Ladies”) film series. These action movies were predominantly filmed on the island of Oahu in Hawaii and featured a cast mostly made up of Playmates in the roles of secret agents.
The following weapons were used in the film Savage Beach:
Harrington & Richardson Model 733
Captain Andreas (John Aprea) carries a Harrington & Richardson Model 733 as his side arm. Martinez (Rodrigo Obregón) takes the Model 733 and uses it during his flight from the island.

Beretta 950BS Jetfire
The Beretta 950BS Jetfire is carried by federal agents Pattycakes (Patty Duffek) and Donna (Dona Speir). In the final scene at the Pacific island, Donna gives her Jetfire to Captain Andreas.

With her Jetfire in her hand, Pattycakes is struggling with a drug trafficker at the beginning of the movie.

Note the straight space between slide and trigger on the Jetfire, setting the gun apart from the Beretta 21 Bobcat
Raven Arms MP-25
A Raven Arms MP-25 with pearl grips is carried by federal agents Rocky (Lisa London) and Taryn (Hope Marie Carlton).

Orion Flare Gun
On several occasions, Donna uses a 12 Gauge Orion Flare Gun from the emergency kit of the plane she crashes on the Pacific island with.

Sterling Mk. IV (Blastech E-11 blaster)
Donny (uncredited actor) can be seen with a Sterling Mk. IV mocked up as the Blastech E-11 blaster from Star Wars. For some reason the movie armorer probably took a toy gun, explaining this most improbable gun placement.
On the left, the ‘blaster’ is visible as Donny and the other criminals come ashore.
Yup, it really is a Star Wars Blastech E-11 blaster…
An IMI Uzi is used by Taryn during the drug bust at the beginning of the movie as well as by a thug (uncredited actor) on the Pacific island.

IMI Micro Uzi
In one scene, Bruce Christian uses a IMI Micro Uzi to take out a Marine officer. The submachine gun appears as being able to fire tranquilizer darts and is probably a non-gun.

The distinctive shape of the back sight of the Micro Uzi is visible, it seems to be filled so this might be a non-gun.
Steyr AUG A1
A Steyr AUG A1 is used by both federal agents Donna and Taryn as well as by Martinez. Interestingly, it has the distinctive duckbill flash hider of the Austrian Army version.

Thug Erik (Eric Chen) uses a two-toned Armalite AR-7 with customized barrel cover, a hand grip and a lightweight synthetic stock. In the final scene, it is taken from him and used by Fu (Al Leong).

Colt Model 1878 (reproduction)
During the drug bust at the beginning of the movie, the main trafficker and one of his accomplices use what looks like a reproduction of a Colt Model 1878 against the federal agents.

H. Koon Snake Charmer
During the same drug bust at the beginning of the movie, another trafficker uses what appears to be a H. Koon Snake Charmer shotgun, a very short single shot .410 in stainless steel with synthetic stocks and a buttstock with a thumb hole pistol grip.
An unidentified crossbow with pistol grip and scope, shooting supposedly explosive arrows, is used by federal agents Taryn, Donna and by Bruce. It might be a 80lb Mini Cobra crossbow but this cannot be confirmed conclusively.
