Detroit is a 2017 historical drama/thriller directed by Kathryn Bigelow and written by Mark Boal, marking their third feature film collaboration, following Zero Dark Thirty and The Hurt Locker. Based on true events, the film depicts the racially-charged 1967 12th Street Riots in Detroit and the Algiers Motel incident in which three black men were killed and nine other civilians were badly beaten after Detroit Police officers, Michigan State Troopers and the Michigan National Guard raided the motel under the pretense of looking for gunmen. The film stars John Boyega, Will Poulter, Anthony Mackie and John Krasinski, and was released on August 4th, 2017.
The following weapons were used in the film Detroit (2017):
Smith & Wesson Model 10
A Smith & Wesson Model 10 revolver with a nickel finish and five inch barrel is seen in the hands of Detroit Police patrolman Phillip Krauss (Will Poulter). The Detroit Police carried the Model 10 with 5 inch barrel and nickel finish for several decades so the movie is historically accurate. Melvin Dismukes (John Boyega) also appears to carry a Model 10 while working as a security guard.
Unknown Starter Pistol
A blank-firing starter pistol of unknown make is fired by Carl Cooper (Jason Mitchell) as a prank.
Detroit Police Department officers are seen wielding Remington 870 Police Magnum Riot shotguns, including Phillip Krauss (Will Poulter), Flynn (Ben O'Toole) and Marty Demens (Jack Reynor).
Michigan National Guardsmen are seen with bayonet-equipped M1 Garand rifles.
Some National Guardsmen, most notably Warrant Officer Roberts (Austin Hebert), are armed with bayonet-equipped M1 Carbines. Michigan State Police officers are also armed with M1 Carbines when they raid the Algiers Motel.
Remington Model 700
Melvin Dismukes uses what appears to be a Remington Model 700 while protecting a grocery store from looters.
A Browning M2HB heavy machine gun is seen mounted on a Michigan National Guard M41 tank.
