EAA Witness

This picture of the EAA Witness makes it look like the weapon was the .45 variant. Anyone agree? I'm not suggesting making any changes to the article, I was just curious. -Anonymous

Steve aims his EAA Witness

Kimel AP-9

To my knowledge there was never a factory full-auto AP-9 model nor a version with a stock (maybe you're thinking of the old Interdynamic MP-9?), the ridges running down the length of the receiver are standard on all AP-9's and is solid.


Gold Bars

  • The most common trading size of gold bars is the LGDB London Good Delivery Bars, the standard slender brick used by banks. These gold bars appear a little larger than the standard LGBD size. The standard size is 400 troy ounces, or 27.4 pounds a bar. A full sized gold brick (the same as a construction brick in dimensions) weighs 62.25 pounds, however no institution trades their gold in that fashion. They all use the 'smaller' and easier to lift bricks. Like all movies dealing with gold, it is physically impossible for these persons to handle these 30+ pound pieces of metal so easily and their vehicles (underwater sled, truck, Austin Minis) could not possibly hold the heavy tonnage of that much gold. Call it a "suspension of disbelief".....
Our robbers move tons of gold via motorized underwater sleds. This many bars would weigh more than a large truck.
A hand was left in the shot for scale, but they seem a little larger than the LGBD. Of course they are plated prop bars, but in reality, if the bars were 15% larger than an LGBD, then each bar is over 30 pounds each. To put it in perspective, each small bar weighs more than a full sized M60 Machine gun.

I disagree. It was trivia related to the movie. Trivia that may be of interest (in small amounts) are allowed on the main movie page. I am moving it back.MoviePropMaster2008 22:26, 8 November 2009 (UTC)

Steve's USP

Are you sure that the pistol steve. Uses in the train yard is a standard USP? It looks like more of a USP compact to me. The pistol steve holds up when surrendering has the square trigger guard of a usp compact. Here is a picture of a compact for comparison: http://i359.photobucket.com/albums/oo38/wpslowik/usp2.jpg statichunter

I agree. It's definitely a USP Compact. Travestytrav 12:14, 15 April 2012 (CDT)
