Hellboy (2004)

Hellboy is the 2004 feature film adaptation of the Mike Mignola comic book series. Directed by Guillermo Del Toro, the film stars Ron Perlman as the title character, a demon summoned from Hell to Earth, but now works as a paranormal investigator for the BRPD (Bureau for Paranormal Research and Defense). The film's cast includes Selma Blair, Doug Jones, and Rupert Evans. The film would spawn a 2008 sequel, Hellboy II: The Golden Army and then a 2019 feature film reboot that starred David Harbour as Hellboy.

The following weapons were used in the film Hellboy (2004):

Fantasy Weapons


Hellboy (Ron Perlman) uses as his personal sidearm, the Samaritan, of which he acquired in the '50s, he named it the "Samaritan" because it puts monsters out of their misery. The metal of the gun is forged from a combination of Irish church bells, cold iron from crucifixes, blessed silver, and other mystic metals. The grips have the BPRD insignia on each side and the wood of the grips is believed to be that of the cross of which Jesus Christ was crucified on. The gun has immense muzzle energy and is believed capable of breaking a normal mans arm due to great recoil. The gun holds 4 shots (although in the film he fires 8) and fires bullets HB makes himself as a hobby. He puts Holy water, Garlic cloves, and white oak shavings in his special rounds. As he calls them, "The Works." The gun uses a tip-open action similar to a Webley or Schofield action revolver. It fires double action and single action. When out of bullets, HB likes to use it as a hammer as this cannon weighs around 10 pounds!

Hellboy gives Myers his tipped-open Samaritan to reload. The cylinder has 4 ejection ports that lie over each round so when the round is spent and the cylinder cycles the empty shell falls out.
Hellboy fires a green glowing tracker bullet into Samiel. You can see they even added rifling to the barrel of the prop.


Luger P08

Karl Ruprecht Kroenen (Ladislav Beran) uses a Luger P08 early in the film and after firing eight shots, he tosses it down to use his blades.

Heckler & Koch USP Compact

Both John Meyers (Rupert Evans) and Clay (Corey Johnson) use Heckler & Koch USP Compact (modified with regular USP hammers) as their personal sidearms throughout the film. Note: Meyers gun is a fake, as when firing the action does not function and no shells fly out. Guards at the museum are seen using both stainless steel slide version and regular versions as well. Clay's gun is a blank gun as seen when he confronts Kroenen.

John Meyers (Rupert Evans) fires his USP compact. Note how nothing cycles, meaning the gun isn't a blank gun. Another goof is the muzzle flash is white yet yellow lights surround him, which would make the muzzle flash yellow, as muzzle flash color is changed by light settings.

Colt M1911A1

In the opening sequence, Sgt. Whitman (Angus MacInnes) first offers his M1911A1 to Young Prof. Broom (Kevin Trainor) then uses his .45 sidearm later to protect Broom from the advancing Kroenen. Many of the soldiers also use their .45s when they first see Hellboy.
