Quick Change is a 1990 heist comedy co-directed by and starring Bill Murray as Grimm, a disgruntled New York City worker who attempts to rob a bank while disguised as a clown. Upon their exit from the bank, Grimm and his fellow bank robbers encounter several mishaps in their quest to get off Manhattan island before the police catch them. The cast included Geena Davis, Randy Quaid, and Jason Robards. Quick Change was based on the Jay Cronley novel of the same name, which had been previously adapted into the 1985 French language film Hold-Up.

A Taurus PT92 is the handgun used by Grimm (Bill Murray) to hold up the bank. The Taurus PT92 used in this film is a very early model with the European-style heel magazine release and no ambidextrous safety, likely made between 1982 to 1983, when they went to a thumb release. The pistol is also fitted with an early pair of Pachmayr wrap-around grips.

Bolt-action marksman rifle manufactured by GRENDEL, Inc. of Rockledge, FL (currently KEL-TEC CNC, Inc.), 1986 to 1990. The weapon was based on a SAKO A-II action and a 20-inches Douglas barrel, all bedded on a polymer stock with an underfolding buttstock for easier transport. Polymer detachable magazine held 10 rounds of 7.62x51mm NATO-caliber ammunition.
The ESU sniper takes aim with the rifle. Note that his hands are away from the trigger, a common practice to tell others nearby that you're looking rather than preparing to fire - although, due to the peculiar design of the stock of this weapon, he might be simply blocking it open in order to prepare to fire.
