Time Stranger (1985)

Time Stranger (originally released in the U.S. under the title GoShogun: The Time Étranger) is a 1985 movie followup to the television series Sengoku Majin GōShōgun (roughly translated as Demon-Lord of War Savaged GoShogun). Set 40 years after the TV show, the film follows Remy, the only female member of the GoShogun team, as she lays dying in a hospital bed remembering her comrades. While the television series never received a faithful English adaptation (it was cut together with an unrelated series and dubbed as Macron-1 in the U.S.), the movie is capable of acting as a stand-alone film and was translated fairly accurately for its English release. It is often noted that despite being based on a lighthearted giant-robot kids show, the film takes on a much darker and more adult-oriented tone with only small hints to the nature of its predecessor (the only reference to the giant robot that served as the series's namesake is a small toy hanging from Remy's rear-view mirror), leaving many English-speaking viewers oblivious to the film's origins.

The following firearms were seen in the anime film Time Stranger:

Smith & Wesson Model 29

Remy 's personal weapon is a Smith & Wesson Model 29 revolver with a 6 inch barrel. Despite the weapons size and her relatively small stature, she claims to have gotten used to its weight and recoil.

Mossberg 500

Shingo Hojo's weapon of choice is a Mossberg 500 shotgun. Several other Mossberg 500 shotguns are seen being used by police officers at a roadblock near the beginning of the film.

M3 "Grease Gun"

One of the bank robbers near the beginning of the film fires at Remy's car with a M3 submachine gun. For some unknown reason, the weapon's front sight is mounted on the barrel. Another M3 is seen being used by a police officer in Remy's dream.

Unknown Submachine Gun

Several of the GoShogun members use an unidentified (and likely fictional) submachine gun during the final battle in Remy's dream. The weapon is an Uzi-style submachine gun with a metal folding stock and flipdown foregrip (similar to a PM-63 RAK) as well as a forward sling mount beneath the barrel and a ported compensator on the muzzle.
