Mossberg 500

A Mossberg 500 shotgun with a wooden forend and a pistol grip is used by Mariner (Kevin Costner). A humorous thing is the fact that during his assault on the Exxon Valdez, he is wearing a Bandoleer with 12 gauge shells, yet he discards the shotgun without ever using the shells in the bandoleer, which he discards as well.

M2 Aircraft Quad Mount

A Browning M2 Aircraft Quad Mount is used by the Smokers on the siege of the Atoll, jamming once before resuming fire. The Mariner then attaches a harpoon to the hull of the Smoker's ship, causing the Quad Mount to spin and take out the Deacon's boat.
