Seven Days (1998-2001)

Seven Days was a science fiction television series that starred Johnathan LaPaglia as Frank Parker, a former Navy SEAL and CIA operative who is part of a secret US government program that allows him to travel back in time seven days in order to avert a disaster. The series aired in the US for three seasons on the UPN Network from 1998 to 2001.

The following weapons were used in the television series Seven Days:

Contents


Handguns

Glock 19

Frank Parker (Johnathan LaPaglia) typically carried a Glock 19 as his sidearm while on assignment outside of Never Never Land. Olga Vukavitch (Justina Vail) handled Parker's Glock 19 in at least one episode, "Come Again".

Glock 17

In the second season, it appears that Parker switched to a full-size Glock 17 as his issued sidearm. Glock 17s were also used by police officers and many other characters on the show.

SIG-Sauer P226

Capt. Craig Donovan (Don Franklin) usually carried a SIG-Sauer P226 as his sidearm while on assignment. P226s were also used by many of the other NSA agents on the show, as well as FBI Agents, and many bad guys.

Smith & Wesson 5906

Security Chief Nathan Ramsey (Nick Searcy) carried a Smith & Wesson 5906 as his sidearm on the show. This gun was also used by several other characters throughout the show, including Kasim (David Ackert) in "Love and Other Disasters" (S2E09).

Rifles

AK-47

There were many milled receiver AK-47 rifles used on the show, but all of those seen appear to be Hudson Replica AK-47 rifles, used for non-firing work. All of the live-fire AK rifles in the show were Chinese Norinco Type 56s (7.62x39mm) and Type 84s (5.56x45mm).

Norinco Type 56/Type56-1

Norinco Type 56 and Type 56-1 AK rifles were a very common weapon used by the bad guys on the show in Season 1, including the Russian terrorists in the Pilot.

Norinco Type 84

The Norinco Type 84 (the 5.56x45mm version of the Chinese Type 56) was also used often - after the production moved from California to British Columbia in Season 2, the Type 84 became the most common firing AK weapon on the show. Both fixed stock and under-folder models were seen, and a few of the Type 84s seen had side-folding stocks, to emulate the AKS-74.

MPi-AKM-K (mock-up)

In Episode 1x11, "HAARP Attack", the leader of the terrorists carried a weapon that looks similar to an East German MPi-AKM-K. This is actually a heavily modified Norinco Type 56 (as noted by the hooded front sight) that was mocked-up to look like an MPi variant - it's been fitted with an East German side-folding stock and has had the barrel and gas tube cut down. This exact same gun (same prop) was also used in Virus and JAG.

AK47 Non-Gun

  • The electronically flashing non-guns which are proprietary props from ISS rentals were used during the shootout scene in Washington DC. A non-gun AK47 (also referred to within IMFDB as a "flash paper" gun) is used by Russian Terrorist Trotsky (Endre Hules) when he's running down Pennsylvania Avenue. Trivia: According to Hules, they really did film in front of the White House (this was before 9/11) and it was the first year of Bill Clinton's administration. The film production crew used the non-guns since they made little noise and that was the only type of weapon that would be allowed so close to the White House. According to the actor who played Trotsky, he could see the real Secret Service Sharp shooters watching his every move when they were filming, with their scoped sniper rifles in plain sight. Enough to make an actor nervous.  :)

M16A1 (with M16A2 hand guards)

M16A1 rifles fitted with M16A2 hand guards were a very common weapon on the show, used by U.S. Army soldiers, Never Never Land personnel, and numerous other characters. Parker and Donovan both used these rifles in the Season 3 episode "Peacekeepers" while on deployment in Bosnia.

M16A2

Plenty of M16A2 rifles were also seen in the show (Parker used one in "Doppleganger, Pt. 2" when joining the assault on General Starker's base), but all of those seen appear to have been Tokyo Marui airsoft guns. This is evident from the fact that in certain lighting conditions, the weapons' receivers have a fake, plastic look. It would appear that the show used airsoft M16A2s for non-firing/background actors, and real M16A1s fitted with A2 hand guards for the firing scenes - in "Peackeepers", for instance, the M16s used by Parker, Donovan, and the other soldiers tend to be A2s when not firing, and become A1s when firing.

XM177 mock-ups

Many NNL personnel, U.S. Army soldiers, and other characters on the show used XM177-type rifles. In the episode "The Fire Last Time", Parker can be seen carrying an XM177 in flashbacks to his time serving with the U.S. Army Rangers in Somalia during the Battle of Mogadishu (shown in greater detail in Black Hawk Down).

All of the "XM177s" on the show were mocked-up from other AR-15 carbine variants and fitted with fake XM177-style compensators. The ones used on the show typically had M16A2 or Model 715-style receivers, while the real XM177 variants only had M16A1 or SP1-type receivers. Rifles similar to these have appeared in many other movies and TV shows, such as The Rock. There were some genuine-looking XM177s in the show, but these appeared to have been mostly Tokyo Marui airsoft guns which were used only for non-firing scenes. The firing XM177s in the show were all mock-ups built from other AR carbines.

Colt Model 933/Olympic Arms K3B-FT

In the episode "Brother, Can You Spare a Bomb?", a Colt Model 933 was carried by an FBI HRT member arresting Ramsey's brother. The weapon had a 4-position stock, a tall flattop receiver and older-style Weaver Rail Integration System (prior to Picatinny rails), so it is most likely an 11.5" Olympic Arms K3B-FT, given Canadian armorers' apparent preference for OA rifles.

Heckler & Koch MP5A3

The Heckler & Koch MP5A3 appeared in a number of episodes, in the hands of Never Never Land security personnel and SWAT teams. Donovan also carried one in at least one episode, "Doppleganger, Part 2", which he used to disarm General Starker (Tom Amandes) by shooting a service Beretta out of his hand.

MP5s with both slimline forearms and Surefire forearms, as well as SEF and Navy trigger groups were seen. As with many of the non-firing guns on the show, Tokyo Marui airsoft MP5s were used in some scenes.

Micro Uzi

Micro Uzi machine pistols was often used by bad guys on the show. In the episode "Love and Other Disasters", Parker used one near the end of the episode after taking it from a terrorist (he even referred to it as an "Uzi").

Machine Guns

(Mock-up) NSV Heavy Machine Gun

In the episode "Peackeepers", a Serb militiaman was seen riding in a technical fitted with what appears to be an anti-aircraft version of the NSV heavy machine gun, but this is actually a dressed-up Browning M2HB. Such weapons have been used often in American and Canadian movies and TV shows.

Shotguns

Double barreled shotgun

What appears to be a 12 Gauge Double Barreled Shotgun is used by Jack (Michael McShane) to shoot Olga (Justina Vail) in Season One - Episode 4: "Come Again?" (S1E04). The shotgun is seen used by frightened townsfolk in "EBEs" (S1E19) and carried by Parker and Princess Lisette in "Love and Other Disasters" (S2E09).

Cobray CM203 Launcher

In many episodes, U.S. soldiers and other characters had Cobray CM203 Flare Launchers fitted to their M16A1 rifles (standing in for the M203). These were seen most notably in "Daddy's Little Girl" (S1E15) in the hands of the U.S. Army Rangers, who are sent behind enemy lines to rescue two downed US pilots.
