26 Years (Korean title: 26년, 26 Nyeon) is a 2012 South Korean thriller-drama film based on the 2006 webcomic of the same name by Kang Full. The film is set in 2006, 26 years after the South Korean military violently suppressed the protesting citizens of the city of Gwangju in the Gwangju Uprising. The film follows a group of five people close to those who were killed during the incident as they plan and execute a plot to assassinate the man behind the massacre (Jang Gwang), who is still alive and heavily guarded by a dedicated security force.


The following weapons were used in the film 26 Years:


Colt M1911A1

Multiple characters throughout the film, mainly The Man's guards, use the Colt M1911A1 as their sidearm.

Colt M16A1

The South Korean Army is accurately depicted using the Colt M16A1 in the Gwangju Uprising throughout the film's animated prologue.

A soldier sets his M16 from safe to "KILL" (in case the audience doesn't know what a gun does). A close-up of the rifle's fire selector is seen.

The soldiers fire at the protestors. Of note is that in this scene, Kwon Jung-hyuk's sister, Su-jin, is shot from behind, which, bizarrely enough, blows her stomach open, causing her intestines to spill out. The M16's 5.56x45mm round is not powerful enough to do this in real life.
Ma Sang-yeol smashes the skull of a dead protestor with the stock of his M16.
The barrel of Sang-yeol's M16 smokes after the rifle is fired.

Feinwerkbau P70

Olympic shooter Shim Mi-jin (Han Hye-jin) uses a Feinwerkbau P70 air rifle throughout the first half of the film.

Mi-jin aims the rifle at The Man and his convoy.
After her earlier shots fail to kill him, Mi-jin presses the rifle's barrel (which is given a close-up in this shot) to the window of the Man's crashed car so that she can get a powerful enough headshot on him (which still fails to kill him).

M1 Garand

An M1 Garand fitted with a bayonet briefly appears in the film's animated prologue.

Mk 12 Mod 1 SPR (mockup)

Shim Mi-jin (Han Hye-jin) is given a sniper rifle based on the Mk 12 Mod 1 SPR (that appears to be built on a Colt M16A1's lower receiver) which she uses throughout the latter half of the film. Of note is that Kwak Jin-bae refers to the rifle as a "modified M-16" (which is true to an extent), and that the rifle doesn't sound suppressed, despite its attached suppressor.
