Trespass is a 1992 thriller directed by Walter Hill and stars Bill Paxton and William Sadler as Vince and Don, two firefighters who come across a map to a stash of gold that was stolen in the 1940s. Things become complicated, however, when they witness a gangland execution by a group of drug dealers led by King James (Ice-T) and his right-hand man Savon (Ice Cube), which leads to a hostage situation and a stand-off. Not to be confused with the 2011 heist thriller starring Nicolas Cage.

The following weapons were used in the film Trespass (1992):


Unknown long-slide Colt 1911 variant

During the trek into East St. Louis to search for gold, Don (William Sadler) takes along an M1911-type pistol which has a long slide. This gun is also used frequently by Vince (Bill Paxton) in several scenes. It is not clear exactly what type of 1911 this is; it looks somewhat like an AMT Hardballer, but the Hardballer was only ever offered with a stainless finish, whereas the gun in the movie has a regular blued finish. It may also be a regular Colt gun with a 7" Safari Arms long slide and barrel.

Colt Detective Special

Early in the film, when Vince (Bill Paxton) and Don (William Sadler) are putting out a fire in a burning building in Arkansas, they run into an old man named Eugene DeLong (Hal Landon Jr.) who holds a Colt Detective Special on them briefly before giving them a map to the gold he stole from a Catholic Church in 1940. Later in the film, the drug dealer Wickey (Stoney Jackson) can also be seen using a Colt Detective Special as his weapon-of-choice. When the drug dealers bring in a cache of heavier weapons, he rejects the opportunity to re-arm with an AR-15, saying that he "don't need no big-ass gun". He then takes out his Colt Detective Special, which prompts the other gangsters to mock him.

Smith & Wesson Model 686

King James (Ice-T) carries a snub-nose Smith & Wesson Model 686 with ivory grips as his sidearm throughout the movie. Later, this weapon is taken by Bradlee (Art Evans).

Savon (Ice Cube) carries a Generation 2 Glock 17 as his sidearm throughout the movie.

Colt AR-15 Sporter II

When the hostage situation begins, King James calls up his arms dealer Raymond (Bruce A. Young) and requests "heavy artillery". Raymond brings along a cache of weapons including a half-dozen Colt AR-15 Sporter II (SPII) assault rifles. Although the weapons have M16A2-style hand guards, they can be recognized as AR-15 SPIIs by the "slab side" lower receiver (visible in several shots), and the fact that none of the weapons are ever fired on full-auto. Most of King James' men, including Savon (Ice Cube), Moon (Byron Minns), Cletus (Tommy "Tiny" Lister), and Davis (Tico Wells) use AR-15s after this.

Cletus grabs an AR-15 SPII (referred to incorrectly by King James as an "M16") from his trunk. Note that the pistol grip and hand guards have rubber bands wrapped around them, which seems to be characteristic of almost every gun used by the drug dealers in this movie.
Video (T.E. Russell) films the cache of AR-15s in the trunk of Raymond's Jaguar.
Video films Savon as he gets his hands on his AR-15. Note the "slab slide" lower receiver of the rifle in this picture, which (combined with the fact that the rifle is only fired on semi) indicates that it's a civilian AR-15 SP1.
Davis (Tico Wells) ascends a fire escape with his AR-15 in hand.
Moon points his AR-15 at Savon when Savon starts acting trigger-happy.

Steyr SSG 69 PI

Another of the weapons that Raymond (Bruce A. Young) brings along is a Steyr SSG 69 sniper rifle with a 10-round box magazine, which is subsequently used by Luther (Glenn Plummer), who claims to have been a marksman in the Army.

Remington 870

Raymond also brings along several sawed-off shotguns which are seen in the trunk of his car. One of them, a Remington 870, is used by King James during the later part of the movie.

Video films King James as he points a sawed-off Remington 870 at Savon (who in turn points his Glock at King James). You'd think Video would realize how stupid it is that (as his view finder shows) he has chosen to position himself between two men pointing loaded guns at each other!

King James fires the Remington at the door of the room where Don, Vince, and Bradlee are holed up.
