Substitute 2: School's Out, The
Work In Progress
The Substitute 2: School's Out is the 1998 DTV sequel to the 1996 film The Substitute. Treat Williams stars as Karl Thomasson, a mercenary who covertly infiltrates a high school as a substitute teacher after his brother is gunned down by gangsters tied to the school. Williams would return as Thomasson in three more DTV sequels.
The following weapons were used in the film The Substitute 2: School's Out:
One of the carjackers who shoots at Randall Thomason in the opening scene of the film uses an Astra A-100, which is seen close-up when he lays the weapon on Randall's body after shooting him. Astra A-100s also appear to be carried by several other gangsters throughout the film.
Smith & Wesson 5946
The other of the two carjackers involved in Randall Thomason's murder at the beginning of the film uses a Smith & Wesson 5946. Several gangsters also use these pistols throughout the film.
A SIG-Sauer P229 is the pistol used by Karl Thomasson (Treat Williams) in the climax of the film. The weapon appears to be the .357 SIG variant of the P229, as the 9x19mm model was not available at the time of filming; the prop weapon repeatedly stovepipes when firing blank rounds.
A gangster uses a stainless Desert Eagle during the final shootout.
Some gangsters are seen armed with Franchi SPAS-12 shotguns in the final shootout.
Bushmaster XM15 "V-Match"
When Karl and Joey Six confront Lil B's (Guru's) gang at their warehouse, Karl uses a flattop AR-15 carbine fitted with an old blocky laser sight and suppressor to shoot at the gangsters. The rifle is not seen clearly, but appears to be a variation of the Bushmaster XM15 "V-Match" with a 16" barrel; it may also be the similar Olympic Arms K16. In the era of the Assault Weapons Ban (1994-2004), both carbines were sold widely as "sporter"-type AR-15 configurations.
Norinco Type 84
Joey Six receives a Norinco Type 84 from the custodian Johnny Bartee but it jams during the shootout with the gangsters. During the final shootout, one of the gangbangers also carries a Type 84 that has been visually modified to resemble a Romanian AIMR, fitted with the AIMS-style stock, a cut-down barrel, and an AK-74-style flash hider.
An M14 is one of the rifles taken out by Jonathan Bartee and then is taken up by Karl.
An M1 Garand is one of the weapons taken up by custodian Jonathan Bartee (Daryl Edwards).
Olmypic Arms K23B
A gangster opens fire during the shootout at the high school with an Olympic Arms K23B.
