Prayer of the Rollerboys is a 1990 action film directed by Rick King. Set in a dystopian future America wracked by economic turmoil and gang violence, it stars Corey Haim as Griffin, a pizza-delivery boy simply trying to look out for himself and his brother. Christopher Collet plays Gary Lee, Griffin's childhood neighbour and, in his new role as founder and leader of the Rollerboys (a white-supremacist gang/cult hoping to 'buy back America') a self-anointed Messiah. When events bring them back in contact with each other, Gary Lee hopes to recapture their friendship and recruit Griffin into the Rollerboys. For his part, Griffin wants nothing to do with the rollerblading neo-fascists, or the drug-dealing and deadly violence that surround them, and he certainly doesn't aspire to wearing one of their signature long white trenchcoats, but nonetheless finds himself semi-reluctantly recruited by the police to infiltrate the gang's ranks and bring them down. The name of the movie (and Gary Lee's cult) derives from rollerblades, the hot new fad at that point of the '90s and the signature 'vehicle' of the gang; many of the movie's action set-pieces revolve around rollerblading and associated stuntwork.

The following weapons were used in the film Prayer of the Rollerboys:


Smith and Wesson 3900 series

Gary Lee carries a short-barrelled silver S&W automatic (probably an SW3913) as his personal sidearm, notably using it in the final showdown scene.

Rifles and Assault Rifles


Several Rollerboys are seen armed with M16s early in the movie. (The forward-assist and forearm suggest M16A1-style weapons.) Members of the Rollerboys' rival gang, the Latino B-13, and LAPD SWAT team are also armed with M-16s in various sequences.

Ruger Mini-14

"Noburo" assault rifles are sold to the Rollerboys about a third of the way into the movie, apparently by the namesake owner of the company himself. Gary Lee refers to the weapons as "vintage stuff ... only used that week that the Israelis were hired to mop up Northern Ireland", a piece of dialogue (and world-building) that has aged poorly in several ways. Noburo security officers protecting the customs-area holding the weapons are armed with their company's rifles; in keeping with the dystopic setting, they use them to shoot dead (without audible warning) a Rollerboy prospect who breaches the perimeter. Various Rollerboys, including the infiltrator Griffin, subsequently use Noburos as their primary weapon for the rest of the movie.
