Nice, but where's the trigger?

Short Circuit (1986)

The following weapons were used in the film Short Circuit:


SIG-Sauer P226

At one point, Duke (Marvin J. McIntyre) pulls a SIG-Sauer P226 which Number 5 incorrectly identifies as a "Colt .45 semiautomatic." Number 5 pulls the gun from Duke's hand and proceeds to rip it apart, declaring it "Play-Doh!"

Duke (Marvin J. McIntyre) points his "Colt .45" at Number 5. You can tell it is a SIG-Sauer P226 and not the similar .45-caliber P220 because of the double stack magazine bulge by the trigger.

Colt Cobra

Duke (Marvin J. McIntyre), one of Skroeder's men, is seen pulling out a Colt Cobra from his ankle holster. This gun was apparently a replacement for the SIG-Sauer that was destroyed by Number 5.

Winchester Model 70

Frank (Brian McNamara) arrives unexpectedly at the house of his ex-girlfriend Stephanie (Ally Sheedy) armed with a Winchester Model 70 bolt-action rifle mounted with a scope. He uses it various times to try and shoot Johnny 5, but each of his rounds are blocked by the robot.
