Metro (1997)

The following weapons were used in the film Metro (1997):



Glock 17

The Glock 17 is first used by San Francisco Police Inspector Scott Roper (Eddie Murphy) when he asks for one from a SWAT officer. Roper also carries the Glock as his sidearm throughout the film. Officer McCall (Michael Rapaport) pulls his Glock during the final standoff with Roper. All of the Glock 17s in the film are 1st Generation models, even though the 2nd Generation version would have been widely available when this movie was filmed. However, when Roper asks for a Glock from a SWAT officer, the officer hands him a rubber Glock 17 which was cast from a 2nd Generation model (detailed below).

A SWAT officer takes his issued Glock 17 out of his holster after Roper asks him for it. The Glock 17 here is clearly a rubber cast stunt version - note that the magazine baseplate appears to have broken off. This is also a cast of a 2nd Generation Glock 17, whereas the live-fire Glocks in the film are all 1st Generation models.

"Non Gun" Glock

In addition to the blank-adapted Glock 17s, the movie also features use of the "Non Gun" Glock in some scenes, particularly scenes where the Glocks are fired close to actors or close to the camera.

Beretta 92FS

A Beretta 92FS is used by Michael Korda (Michael Wincott) when he commandeers a cable car as well as in the standoff with Roper.

Non Gun Beretta

In some scenes, particularly on the cable car, Korda's Beretta becomes a Non Gun Beretta 92FS. This is likely because it is fired in close proximity to actors in a confined space, where the noise would be difficult to manage even with ear plugs.

Smith & Wesson Model 36

During the standoff with Korda at the end of the film, Roper is told to get rid of his backup weapon, which appears to be a nickel Smith & Wesson Model 36.

Smith & Wesson 659

A Smith & Wesson 659 is hidden in a bag full of jewelry by Roper. It jams after 2 shots, so Scott tosses it away.

Rifles / Carbines


SFPD SWAT officers are also armed with M16A2 rifles (or possibly commercial semi-auto AR-15 A2 clones, since the rifles are never fired).
