Erm..I...Hm...I see the stock of a SCAR, the barrel of a AKS-74U...wow, talk about ugly.--SeanWolf (talk) 11:54, 12 December 2016 (EST)
That looks like a modified AKS-74U. The handguard and magazine looks like they're made by magpul. And i gotta say, the name of this movie is just painfully dumb.--AnActualAK47 (talk) 12:33, 12 December 2016 (EST)
Ditto, this makes it almost seem like a different film of the franchise; why didn't they simply stick to "Fast 8" or whatever. --Ultimate94ninja (talk) 05:38, 13 December 2016 (EST)
I think it's an AKMSU with Magpul Zhukov stock and a Magpul MOE handguard - an attempt to make it look like a modernized Russian AK based on who is firing the weapon. --Markit (talk) 13:26, 12 December 2016 (EST)
I'd lean more to a modded 74 than an older AK, looks to be a 5.45 mag. StanTheMan (talk) 14:08, 12 December 2016 (EST)
It's a 7.62x39mm mag, as seen from a side angle; I'll upload a screencap regarding this later. --Ultimate94ninja (talk) 14:36, 12 December 2016 (EST)
FF8 234.jpg
This is it. I believe it's what Markit said, an AKMSU with a Magpul MOE handguard. --Ultimate94ninja (talk) 16:02, 12 December 2016 (EST)
Ah. Then yes, I'd concur with the above then. StanTheMan (talk) 02:01, 13 December 2016 (EST)

AR-15

FF8 506.jpg

Moving it here for now, because it isn't an M4A1. It's a shorter carbine (source) with a drum magazine, likely an X Products X-15 50-rounder. Here we also see Tyrese with a Glock 17. --Ultimate94ninja (talk) 10:04, 10 March 2017 (EST)

https://www.instagram.com/p/BTEphY7gzgX/?taken-by=xtreme_props <- Here's a post telling more information about the AR, it's a Taran Tactical Innovations TR1 7in with a MagPul DMag. Optics are Trijicon VCOG with an offset Trijicon RMR on a LaRue Tactical 4XDOS mount. --Thingsthatgopew (talk) 16:55, 20 April 2017 (EDT)
So, why does Taran keep sticking scopes on shorty CQB guns? Their AR-15 in John Wick 2 had a scope on it as well. Also, why the sudden explosion of custom AR-15 makers?--Mandolin (talk) 00:01, 21 April 2017 (EDT)
A lot of those scopes are 1-6x power (speaking specifically about the Trijicon used on the TTI AR seen in JW2), so they are used in various shooting competitions due to the versatility of having a scope that can be used in close and long ranges. --Aidoru (talk) 02:11, 21 April 2017 (EDT)
This could be the result of the "gun culture" becoming more widespread into media. Guns in movies used to be standard looking weapons and any custom gun is either a hero gun only the main character uses or a prop designed for the setting. I think this is good for the PR of customization that's becoming more widespread. The idea that we should be seeing guns that are slightly different from factory stock guns Excalibur01 (talk) 09:41, 4 May 2017 (EDT)
Seeing decked out (beyond the usual reddot/foregrip setup) guns in movies is always fun. BTW, found this on TTI's instagram.--AnActualAK47 (talk) 12:48, 4 May 2017 (EDT)
I think Mr Nobody presented this to Hobbs at the end of the movie Excalibur01 (talk) 18:09, 4 May 2017 (EDT)

Guns I saw in the movie

Well I saw a AKMSU used by Russian diplomats to shoot Dominic's shield,LTL Mossbergs XREP with ORANGE forniture, a Salient Arms (can be reconized by the yellow) M1911-style gun used by Shawn on the (very beautiful but that is just my personal opinion) Cypher'(Sharline Steron) s plane, various Kalashes, a vz,58 in Vladivov base used by a Chechen(?) separitist,a M2 on the Ripsaw (one of the charaters id it as a M153 CROWS),a SR-25 ECC-style rifle used by Connor in Russia. I was in cinema, (watched the Original Voice version; not Italian dubbed so I m 100% of M153) so I can't make photo but I m pretty sure of the IDs (yeah I made them generic on pourpose for avoiding errors by my side).--Dannyguns (talk) 03:38, 18 April 2017 (EDT)

Fairly certain that Connor uses a LaRue Tactical OBR 5.56, specifically the new PredatAR. Rail covers are very distinct. He also used a suppressed Glock 19 briefly. Two Kimber 1911s are used, one is a tan-frame Warrior with threaded barrel and Surefire 310R flashlight. The other was black, looked like it could've been the SIS, not sure though. A Salient Arms Glock, looked like the 17, was used on the plane as well. Spotted what looked like a couple of two-tone Smith & Wesson M&Ps in the finale, could've been mistaken. The shotguns in the prison scene were fitted with orange Mapgul MOE furniture and fired rubber bullets. --LordOfTheLocusts (talk) 01:35, 19 April 2017 (EDT)
I'm pretty sure the 1911 used by Statham's character on board the airplane was some sort of SVI, a fact further corroborated by SVI's webssite touting their "Fate of the Furious" debut. At the very end, there is also a very prominent display of a Taran Tactical Glock presented to The Rock's character.-Aidoru (talk) 04:16, 19 April 2017 (EDT)

Tej indeed identified the mount system as an M153 CROWS, but it actually mounts an M3M/GAU-21 as currently stated on the page, not an M2. Is that a blank adaptor inside the muzzle brake? (there's an image of the weapon in idle on the main page) --Ultimate94ninja (talk) 19:33, 2 May 2017 (EDT)
Firstly, I don't think that this gun is actually an M3M, I think that it is an M2 Aircraft that has been mocked up to resemble an M3M as if you look at photos of the vehicle (such as this one, or the 1st cap on the main page for that matter) you can see that the MG has the regular buffer rather than the larger one from the M3M. As for the flash hider, I think that it is a custom machined mock up, as if nothing else the real one has 5 tines rather than 4 as seen here. I think that this could be the exact same machine gun used in G.I. Joe: Retaliation, also coincidentally mounted on top of a Ripsaw, with the carry handle removed and fitted into a CROWS type mount. --commando552 (talk) 12:44, 3 May 2017 (EDT)
Fair enough. Btw IMDB states that the MG's fired rounds are crimped at the end and thus blanks; the section in that site is obviously not the best reference since some statements are incorrect, but still. --Ultimate94ninja (talk) 17:14, 3 May 2017 (EDT)
Can confirm, the ejected brass is crimped blanks (not that we expected anything else)--Mandolin (talk) 19:57, 3 May 2017 (EDT)
