The Big Hit (1998)

The following weapons were used in the film The Big Hit:


Beretta 93R

Melvin Smiley (Mark Wahlberg) uses a Beretta 93R with the foregrip and flash hider removed. This same gun later made a brief cameo in Mark Wahlberg's 2005 film Four Brothers, handled again by Wahlberg himself, in a possible reference to this film. (Both movies were filmed in Toronto, and the weapons were provided by Canadian armorer John "Frenchie" Berger.)

Beretta 92FS

Beretta 92FSs are seen often throughout the movie, mostly in the hands of the "The Big Man'"s bodyguards and the hit squad sent after Melvin.

Desert Eagle Mark I

During the meal with Melvin's girlfriend and soon to be in-laws, a hitman aims a custom ported Desert Eagle Mark I under the table at Melvin. The same gun can be seen in Four Brothers.

Sawed-Off Double Barrel Shotgun

Melvin uses a Sawed-Off Double Barrel Shotgun during the dinner scene. He empties both barrels into a pair of hitmen sitting across from him, sending them flying out of their seats.

Submachine Guns

Franchi LF-57

In an unusual configuration, Melvin has a Franchi LF-57 mounted on his assault rifle in a similar fashion to an underbarrel grenade launcher.

This scene moves very quickly and it is difficult to get a clear view of the SMG.

IMI Mini Uzi

Mini Uzis are seen in the hands of the "The Big Man"'s bodyguards and later with the hitmen sent after Melvin.

Colt CAR-15-Style Rifle

Melvin uses an unknown CAR-15-style carbine during the car chase, which has an under-barrel mounted Franchi LF-57. It has an A2-style upper receiver and fixed stock, but a carbine length barrel; when he is seen taking the gun out of his safe earlier in the film, it has a 16" barrel. Possibly a Colt AR-15A2 Sporter Lightweight.

Melvin's Gun Collection

Melvin has one hell of a gun collection.
