Walking Tall (2004)

Walking Tall is the 2004 feature film remake of the 1973 action revenge drama that starred Joe Don Baker. Dwayne Johnson stars in the film as Chris Vaughn, a US Special Forces veteran who returns to his small Washington town only to find it corrupted by a crime lord that runs a gambling and prostitution establishment. He then proceeds to clean the town up on his own, taking on the corrupt authorities and the various crime elements in town.

The following weapons were used in the film Walking Tall (2004):




Beretta 92FS

One of the security guards in the casino draws a Beretta 92FS when Chris starts a fight after catching a craps dealer using weighted dice. The same guard uses the Beretta when attacking Chris' family later in the film.

Glock 17

Glock 17 pistols are used by Sheriff Stan Watkins (Michael Bowen), Dep. Rolston (Eric Breker), as well as Chris Vaughn (Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson) when he becomes Sheriff. When Watkins and some other of the deputies shoot up the police station, Chris gives his Glock to Deni (Ashley Scott), who helps distract Watkins at one point, but does little more than waste ammo.

Watkins points his Glock 17 at Chris after he attacked the casino.
Deni fires Chris' Glock 17. Instead of the slide locking back, it simply "clicks" empty. Despite the fact that this is a common way filmmakers show that a pistol is 'empty', two reasons can explain this - (a) The last round is a dud or (b) The magazine follower has been worn and won't reliably hold the slide back on the last shot.

One of the ex-security guards in Chris' house is armed with an M1911A1 pistol which he manages to hit Ray in the leg with before he stabs him with a potato peeler. He later is shown to still be alive and is shot by Chris Sr. with the 870 shotgun.

Mossberg 500

Booth (Kevin Durand), one of the guards in the Casino tries to shoot Chris with a Mossberg 500 before being dispatched by him and his block of wood. Later in the film when both Chris and Ray Templeton (Johnny Knoxville) are officers, they are both seen using Mossberg 500 shotguns throughout the film. Though to tough to tell, the guns in some shots appear to lack the top-rear receiver mounted switch safeties, indicating they might actually be Maverick Model 88s (the 'economy' version of the Mossberg 500).

Remington 870

Chris Vaughn (Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson) keeps a Remington 870 locked up in his shed. He takes it with him to assault the casino but then decides to instead take a 4"x4" block of wood instead. He gives the 870 to his father, Chris Vaughn Sr. (John Beasley), who declines claiming he put his guns up long ago. Later in the film when the ex-security guards attack Chris' family, Vaughn Sr. changes his mind, takes the 870 and kills the last man with it.

Assault Rifles

Colt Model 715

While Chris and Deni are in the Sheriff's Department, one of the ex-deputies (Ty Olsson) opens up with a Colt Model 715, the earlier Colt Canada C7 produced by the American Colt to serve Canadian forces, noted by M16A2 forward assist and shell deflector with M16A1 style sights. It is fitted with a 100 round Beta-C magazine.

Note: Since the film was 100% filmed in British Columbia, it is expected that the armorers were Canadian. The armorer, Ron Blecker, though a trained American soldier, is a common face on Canadian television, seen as a background soldier (and military tech advisor) on Canadian-shot shows like Battlestar Galactica and Stargate SG-1. Blecker's crew and group are based out of Canada and get all their weapons from Canadian sources.

Machine Guns

Daewoo K3 (visually modified to resemble FN Minimi SPW)

While Chris and Deni are in the Sheriff's Department, Stan Watkins and ex-Deputy Rolston begin firing at them with Daewoo K3 LMGs that have been modified to resemble the FN Minimi SPWs ("Special Purpose Weapons").

Daewoo K3 - 5.56x45mm. One of these LMGs, fitted with a fake M249 Paratrooper-style stock, a shortened barrel, and a forward grip, is the weapon used in the film.
