Stander is a 2003 film about the true story of South African Police Captain Andre Stander (played by Thomas Jane) who robbed 26 banks during his time as a Police Captain in the late 1970s and twenty more after breaking out of prison, going on a six month crime spree from 1983 to 1984 with his two accomplices Lee McCall and Allan Heyl.
The following weapons were used in the film Stander:
Smith & Wesson Model 27
Andre Stander (Thomas Jane) takes a Smith & Wesson Model 27 from a South African policeman during a bank robbery and uses it throughout the rest of the film.
Smith & Wesson Model 19
A Ft. Lauderdale policeman shoots Stander with a Smith & Wesson Model 19 service revolver when Stander grabs his partner's Remington 870.
Smith & Wesson Model 19 Snub Nose
When Stander's wife Bekkie (Deborah Kara Unger) wakes up the morning of the riot, she sees Stander's Smith & Wesson Model 19 Snub Nose on his pillow. Stander (Thomas Jane) had previously been seen wearing this on his belt.
Smith & Wesson Model 10
Andre Stander (Thomas Jane) uses a Smith & Wesson Model 10 during his post-prison crime spree during several bank robberies until he takes a Model 27 from a policeman. Lee McCall (Dexter Fletcher) uses the Model 10 alongside his Star Model BM during his final shootout.
Smith & Wesson Model 15
Lee McCall (Dexter Fletcher) takes a Smith & Wesson Model 15 from a bank guard and uses it alongside his Star Model BM during a bank robbery.
Smith & Wesson Model 64
Andre Stander (Thomas Jane) uses a Smith & Wesson Model 64 during the gun store robbery, setting it down to treat the clerk's gunshot wound.
After the riots, a man driving through in a car hangs a Colt revolver out the window.
Gun store Revolver
Single Action Army
A Single Action Army is in the display case at the gun store, between the Star Model B and Remington 1875 and directly above the Colt Government.
Webley Mk IV
A Webley Mk IV is in the display case at the gun store, on the far right.
A Remington 1875 is in the display case at the gun store, next to the SAA and Colt Government.
Star Model B
When breaking out of prison, Andre Stander (Thomas Jane) grabs a Star Model B from a prison guard and uses it to break himself and McCall out.
Star Model BM
Lee McCall (Dexter Fletcher) uses a Star Model BM taken from a prison guard throughout the film, using it notably to wound the gun store clerk and alongside a Smith & Wesson during his final shootout.
Among the guns stolen by the Stander gang at the gun store is a Colt Government, used by Allan Heyl (David O'Hara) during the latter scenes of the film.
A Browning Hi-Power is in the display case at the gun store, next to a Colt Government and under a Star Model B. It appears to have a nickel plated trigger, slide stop and safety.
The standard sidearm of the South African police is the Walther P38, carried in a shoulder holster by Andre Stander (Thomas Jane). During the prison breakout, Lee McCall (Dexter Fletcher) hands Allan Heyl (David O'Hara) a P38 which he uses throughout most of the film.
Unidentified compact pistol
The gun store clerk fires a compact pistol at McCall and Heyl as they rob it after a humorous exchange in which McCall asks to see the store's Beretta rifles and becomes confused when the woman asks if he wants to see the "Deluxe or standard?"
The Stander gang steals several Armscor BXP submachine guns during the gun store robbery, with Lee McCall (Dexter Fletcher) notably firing his into the air during a bank robbery, breaking all the glass in the ceiling. Stander (Thomas Jane) uses the BXP during the subsequent shootout between the getaway car and police car. The BXP's appearance in the film is an anachronism as it wasn't developed until 1988.
FN FAL 50.00
The riot police during the Apartheid riot, including Cor van Deventer (Ashley Thomas), carry FN FAL 50.00 rifles. Some of the policemen arresting Capt. Stander in the bank also have FN FALs.
The South African police fire Vektor R4s at McCall during the siege on his house. The Galil has been in South African police service since 1982 (fitting as this scene takes place in 1984), with the ARM designated as the "R4" and the SAR designated as the "R5".
During the Apartheid riots, Captain Andre Stander (Thomas Jane) asks for a shotgun and is given a Browning BPS.
A policeman during the siege on the Stander gang hideout has a Maverick 88.
Some of the other riot policemen carry Remington 870 shotguns. Several Remington 870s are also seen in the gun shop robbed by the Stander gang, and the second Ft. Lauderdale policeman who stops Stander has an 870, which Stander (Thomas Jane) grabs and chambers.
MagTech MT 586P.2
Some of the other riot policemen carry MagTech MT 586 shotguns.
Milkor "Stopper" 37/38mm Gas Grenade Launcher
One of the riot policemen fires a tear gas cartridge from a Milkor Stopper grenade launcher.
The "Stopper", produced by the South-African company MILKOR (then part of the ARMSCOR conglomerate), and not to be confused with the model that bears the same name manufactured nowadays by the same company, was an ubiquitous 37mm/38mm launcher used by the South African Police for riot control from the 1970s on.
