Jackie Brown is the 1997 feature film adaptation of the Elmore Leonard novel Rum Punch. Adapted for the screen and directed by Quentin Tarantino, the film stars Pam Grier as the title character, a flight attendant who finds herself in the middle of a predicament involving an arms dealer, a bail bondsman and a large sum of cash. The film, which was a tribute to Pam Grier's years starring in 1970's blaxploitation films, also starred Samuel L. Jackson, Robert De Niro, Michael Keaton, Robert Forster, and Bridget Fonda. The characters of Ordell and Louis were previously introduced in Elmore Leonard's 1978 book The Switch, which subsequently was adapted into the 2013 feature film Life of Crime.

The following weapons were used in the film Jackie Brown:



Colt Detective Special

When Max Cherry (Robert Forster) picks up Jackie Brown (Pam Grier) from jail, he had to leave his Colt Detective Special at the security gate office. He later returns it to his glove-box in his car where Jackie Brown discovers it while checking for cigarettes inside. Without Max knowing it, she "borrows" it for later use and gives it back to Max the next day. In the final scene of the movie in Max's office, she again gets a grip on it as it is deposited in a drawer of Max's desk.

Smith & Wesson Model 10

Early in the film, Ordell (Samuel L. Jackson) is seen pulling a Smith & Wesson Model 10 out of his glove compartment. The script's description of the scene: "Inside the Oldsmobile, Ordell reaches into the glove-box and pulls out a five-shot .38 snubby."

Harrington & Richardson Model 732

After Jackie takes his gun, Max Cherry (Robert Forster) goes back to his office and grabs a backup Harrington & Richardson Model 732 from his desk drawer.

Beretta Jetfire

Ordell Robbie (Samuel L. Jackson) takes a nickel Beretta Jetfire from his car when he goes to confront Jackie Brown (Pam Grier) after Cherry drives her home. Jackie takes it from Ordell after disarming him and presumably keeps it as she tells Cherry the next day she has her own gun. Note that the script names the weapon as a "little Targa .22 pistol."

Louis Gara (Robert De Niro) draws and fires his nickel M1911A1 twice in the mall parking lot. Ordell (Samuel L. Jackson) later takes it from him and uses it throughout the rest of the film. The script had called for Gara to be armed with a Beretta 92FS instead.

Smith & Wesson 5906

ATF Agent Ray Nicolette (Michael Keaton) keeps his Smith & Wesson 5906 in both a shoulder holster and a belt holster, drawing and firing it during the confrontation in Cherry's office.

Nicolette approaches Ordell on the floor in Cherry's (Robert Forster) office with his Smith & Wesson 5906 drawn after shooting him. Behind him, Dargus approaches with his Glock 19.

Mossberg 500

When Max Cherry (Robert Forster) opens his gun cabinet and retrieves a "stun gun", two Mossberg 500s can be seen in the cabinet. Another Mossberg is seen at the beginning of the film, during the sequence showing "Chicks Who Love Guns" TV show (see below).

Mossberg 500 "Persuader" with standard five-shot magazine tube - 12 gauge. This is the most commonly produced version of the 500 series today.

Mossberg 500 (Sawed Off)

Ordell Robbie (Samuel L. Jackson) bends down into the trunk of a car and pulls out a sawed off Mossberg 500 pump action shotgun with wood pump grip and ventilated barrel ribbing that Beaumont Livingston (Chris Tucker) shall use for a job in Koreatown - at least so he is told. Beaumont reluctantly takes it and lays in the trunk.

"Chicks Who Love Guns" TV Show

Early in the film, Ordell Robbie (Samuel L. Jackson) shows a pre-recorded TV presentation of a fictional show, Chicks Who Love Guns, to Louis Gara (Robert De Niro). The show features 5 guns in the following order:

Intratec TEC-DC9

A Intratec TEC-DC9 can be seen in the hands of Sidney. The information claims the gun uses a 32 round "clip" instead of the proper term "magazine". When firing the gun, she's pretty much shooting the ground yet everything she aims at is destroyed.

Steyr AUG

A Steyr AUG-A1 can be seen in the hands of Cindy. She refers to it as an "Aug" instead of A-U-G (Ordell also mispronounces "Steyr").

An AKM (referred to incorrectly as the "Chinese model") can be seen.

Mossberg 500 (Custom)

The final chick Tammy Jo uses a customized Mossberg 500 in the video, and accidentally shoots the camera man with it. The weapon has the standard riot-length barrel and standard mag tube, but is fitted with an aftermarket polymer buttstock, pistol grip and a heat shield on the barrel. She claims the gun has a "standard choke" barrel, but it isn't fitted with a choke.

Mossberg 500 Cruiser pistol-gripped shotgun with heat shield - 12 Gauge. The Mossberg in the show clip has an aftermarket buttstock, but is otherwise identical.
"It's made in America, just like me." Note the stock and heatshield.
She says the gun holds 5 rounds in the magazine tube, which is correct, however, she points to the ejection port as she says this.
