While she doesn't use them in the film, Alice is seen holding two full-size IMI Uzis in the theatrical movie poster.

IMI Uzi - 9mm

I'll take the job

No one's been bothering with this, so I've decided to take it up.

Hasn't anybody noticed the shotgun in Mikey's van? When the crows fly past his sensors, the alarm sounds, he wakes up and hits his head, then as he gets up you can clearly see a shotgun hanging on the ceiling of the van. At first I thought it was a Benelli semi-automatic but after I looked at it a few times I could see it was pump-action for sure. It has a pistol grip/rifle stock, and an extended magazine. I hope someone finds out what it is. (Gunmaster12)

What Im thinking it might be a Benelli M3 or probably a modified shotgun or something. Im like, f**king confused and its annoying me... (Demonslayer43)


I've seen a couple revolvers, but haven't gotten any good shots of them.


I can't help but wonder where a cowboy driving around in the Nevada desert would come upon a British army rifle... Spartan198 12:02, 25 May 2009 (UTC) Spartan198

Maybe, for the sake of the story, he encountered British troops in the US and took it from a dead body, or got it from a guy who happens to have it, or it was HIS and he somehow aquired it. Who knows. I mean where does Alice get the ammo for her guns anyway? How did Carlos lose his Tavor? Just try not to ask the question for the sake of asking Excalibur01 04:01, 14 June 2009 (UTC)
Alice's ammo: Probably the same place everyone else does, from raiding small towns. Carlos' Tavor: The Tavor wasn't Carlos', it was Yuri's and he probably abandoned it in Raccoon City when he ran out of ammo. Spartan198 00:54, 25 December 2009 (UTC)
Yeah, Yuri and Nikolai had TARs, Carlos had a Galil. Carlos also had Desert Eagles, so it seems the Israeli weapons industry armed the whole team... DKS01 15:02, 3 August 2010 (UTC)

Its one thing I wondered when I first saw this article, would be fun if we could get these rifles here in the US but Britian is anti gun so they wouldn't want to help us arm ourselves. --FIVETWOSEVEN 00:00, 9 March 2010 (UTC)

You really wouldn't want one, I seved with one, and it jammed up on me 3 times in 2 mags - Captain Snikt

Must be the oldies, the new ones worked fine. Only ever had 1 jam. But, I agree you wouldn't want one, stick to your M4 and M16. But, back to the topic of how an L85 can end up in Yanke land - a company (Prexis?) sells something called the PR85a1 in parts of the USA. It looks like an A1, but isn't. It only works in semi-automatic. Effectivly, it is an L98A2 cadet rifle, but with the externals of an L85A1 (the A2, made by HK in 2009, is capable of semi-automatic, unlike the bolt action A1 cadet rifle). From what I've been told, its almost impossible to mod it to fire on fully auto or bust. It costs quite a bit too, a few grand (£).

Late to this convo, but the question came to my mind too. I mean yeah, the characters are carrying whatever they happened to loot/come across, and I accept that, but still, the odds of coming across an L85 in the US rather than a weapon actually used by some branch of the US military/law enforcement, or even a weapon that's reasonably easy to acquire by civilians in the US has GOT to be slim. Realistically, as far as assault rifles go, an M4, or M16, or a G36, or even an AUG(which is at least used by Customs) would be a lot more likely to be found laying around waiting to be looted than an L85. Then again, "realism" and "Resident Evil movie" should probably never be brought up in the same topic anyways, so I suppose the point is moot. DKS01 14:55, 3 August 2010 (UTC)

Rule of cool my friend, rule of cool. That and its so...'exotic'. You barely see them in films set in the UK, or with UK forces (because - how many are there?) so to see one in the US makes it extra special. Then again - perhaps he owns it - as the above guy said, a company in the USA does sell a semi-automatic L85 clone.
Ok, I want to know which company is that? Cause I kinda like the L85 rifle, though I like the AUG more. Excalibur01 02:39, 6 August 2010 (UTC)
Well, the guy said the one sold in the US is "almost impossible to mod it to fire on fully auto" too, so still, the cowboy just happens to be/find one of the what, 100 people in the US who had one of those rifles(the company that makes them is indeed Prexis, it's called the PL-85, and it costs $2900 on their website) AND happens to also able to convert it/find one already converted to full auto? Seems you'd be more likely to find some Modern Warfare kid who was machining his own AKs in his mom's basement than find a PL-85. So yeah, I'd say rule of cool indeed wins out. Oh well, it's always fun to find off the wall firearm choices in movies, regardless of whether or not the weapon realistically would be the one used. DKS01 04:48, 6 August 2010 (UTC)
really late to this, but wouldn't it be possible for the character to have purchased the gun illegally before the outbreaks started?
Theoretically, yes. Realistically...how easy do you think it is to get an illegal L85 on the black market? Handguns, pump shotguns, various rifles, yeah, stuff like M16s, M4s, MP5s, G36s...stuff that could be "misplaced"/stolen from a US Law Enforcement or military force, and make it's way onto the black market, sure. Things like AKs and Uzis that have been smuggled into the country illegally for years, yeah wouldn't be too hard to get them either, if you had the cash and knew the right people. But how many L85s, even illegals, do you think are floating around out there(especially being that it's not a prolific gun to begin with, not like AK and AR style weapons which are used, sold, and/or cloned all over the world by dozens of countries, and have a lot of possible sources for arms dealers to acquire them at)? Would *really* take some effort to get one of those, I'd think. But yes, it is, theoretically, possible, we never said it was impossible he'd have one, just extremely unlikely. DKS01 09:24, 8 April 2011 (CDT)

Maybe the convoy raided an abandoned special forces base / facility? I know that the British SAS keep examples of loads of foreign firearms in their armouries for familiarity training or deniable, clandestine operations - it's not much of a stretch to imagine US special forces troops doing the same Stickie (talk) 16:07, 26 March 2013 (EDT)

If any US SOF unit had L85s in their inventory, I think there would be some photographic evidence floating around out there as well as a national stock number associated with it. EVERYTHING procured by the DoD has an NSN. Seriously, even shoe laces have one. I did check a couple NSN databases and found no mention of L85 rifles, but, curiously, a cover of some kind for the SUSAT scope has the NSN 8465-99-130-7405. Strange, since I've never heard of the US military ever using SUSAT scopes. 16:26, 20 July 2019 (EDT)

Took out the crossbow

The reason why I took out the crossbow is for obvious reasons, it's NOT a firearm in any sense of the word. Excalibur01 03:59, 14 June 2009 (UTC) It launches a projectile, though.-protoAuthor

Lots of articles on this site (The Punisher, the Rambo series) feature bows and other weapons that are not technically firearms. The rule of thumb seems to be if a mechanically powered projectile weapon appears in a film with lots of actual firearms, said weapon can be either included or omitted at the discretion of the author.

Unknown Revolver

Chase (Linden Ashby) uses an unknown revolver to kill a zombie on the Eiffel Tower.

I'm pretty sure that it was a Colt 1873 SAA or something similar.
It was double action I believe. It is seen for only a split section, so I couldn't ID it myself when I watched it on TV recently. - Gunmaster45
Looked like a schofield style revolver, probably 7.5" barrel. If you watch closely he appears to cock it for each shot. Look carefully when hes on the tower and fighting off the zombie, he reaches for a blued revolver with a wood handle that looks a lot like a russian or beretta laramie schofield revolver. Just my 2cents
There's an ejector shroud and if you look close enough, you can see the hinge for the cylinder. In my honest opinion it's either a S&W model 28 or a Model 29. Linden Ashby is a big man, Judging by the size of the gun and his size, it'd be a .44 magnum Model 29.

Mossberg 464

[moved from main page] --AdAstra2009 00:07, 25 December 2009 (UTC)

did anyone else notice she was loading it with what looked like 45ACP ammo?? -Could be chambered in the similar 45LC, Winchester 94's come in that caliber too.

This is not a Mossberg 464. Production of the 464 began in 2008, while the movie was released in 2007. Also the characteristic tang safety of the 464 is not present on the 1st screenshot closeup image. Please compare to the image provided by Gunmaster 45, which shows the tang safety as a conspicuous bump on the top of the buttstock a few inches behind the trigger.-LJ (talk) 15:36, 20 July 2019 (EDT)

Looks to be a Winchester Model 94 with a crossbolt safety. Black Irish Paddy (talk) 19:05, 20 July 2019 (EDT)
It seems no images for a Win 94 are available at present, just 1894's. Anybody got one?-LJ (talk) 18:14, 21 July 2019 (EDT)


What revolver is this insane survivor using ?

An insane survivor holds Alice's LDA, the other one has a revolver.

K-Mart used the Winchester

Hey how come the character K-Mart (Spencer Locke) hasn't got a page? In this movie (Resident Evil: Extinction), she uses the Winchester Model 1300 12Gauge but it isn't mentioned. It happened during the Super-Undead Zombie attack, zombies come out of the container, she runs away, gets into the truck with L.J., thena zombie comes and tries to get in. She gets the shotgun, yells at L.J. "Get down!", pumps the weapon, thenshoots the zombie in the head. She deserves the recognition for it. After all, the character is supposed to be 14 years old.

She has a page, but to be honest, I don't think she needs one, as she's only used one gun in one movie, kind of a waste of space until she gets some more notches in her belt. Kornflakes89 21:56, 16 April 2011 (CDT)

Carlos's handguns

Didnt Carlos use Dual Desert Eagles in Apocolypes? But i guess being 5 years since the movies have gone by hes gotten new ones... wierd... (Demonslayer43)

I think he should have kept the IMI Desert Eagles .50AEs. They beat HK USP 9mms any day....:( --Gunmaster12 13:49, 10 August 2010 (UTC)

Only when your out of 9mm.--FIVETWOSEVEN 17:55, 10 August 2010 (UTC)

FiveTwoSeven is right on the money. Desert Eagles might beat 9mm if you're hunting rhinos or grizzly bears or something, but otherwise, they're a bulky, heavy, oversized gun firing unnecessarily big bullets. Hate to tell you man, but the real world doesn't work like Call of Duty, there's NO real world military or police force that carries the DE, while there are tons carrying 9mm pistols. And there's a reason for that. DKS01 02:48, 11 August 2010 (UTC)

The Desert Eagle may be over-powered, but the 9mm is definatly under-powered. You could hit an enemy 4-5 times and not take them out, but with the Desert Eagle you only need 1 shot. And please don't tell me your a "9mm all the way", because there are more calibres that are better than the 9mm than there are worse, by far. (.41AE, 10mm Auto, 9x21mmIMI, and of course .45 ACP, plus all the magnums .357 and .44 are better by my books.)And no, i don't think the world works like COD4, because i have found more mistakes with the firearms than you could ever imagine. Ditto for MW2. I wish i had had a say in the making of the games, i would have changed a lot. sorry if i caused offence.--Gunmaster12 04:09, 13 August 2010 (UTC)

I take it that you come from video games and know little about real guns. 9mm is perfectly fine for anything related to personal defence. One very well known writer that also lives in my home state New Hampshire, Massod Ayoob, is a retired police officer. He is VERY experianced with guns and in fact "gunfighting" aswell. He has actually been in real gun fights. He writes alot about gun fights where someone had to draw their weapon. He is by definition a true expert on guns. He packs a 9mm daily. Would he if it took several rounds to do what one round of .45 could do? No he wouldn't. There has been one account of someone that was shot 4 times with a .45 and walked out of the hospital a few hours later and many other accounts where someone was shot once with a 9mm and was dead before he hit the ground. One gun high as a kite on meth was shot 6 times with a .41 magnum and kept fighting and took getting run over the the LEO's partner with the cruiser and he was still trying to fight even with the vehicle over him .41 AE is a near obsolete round, 9x21 is extremely uncommon, and 10mm is uncommon to a point. The desert eagle is NOT a fighting handgun, way to big and unwieldy. Also putting trust into a large round to stop someone kinda says that you don't trust your self to hit him somewhere vital and you hope that he drops dead. Getting hit once with a .50 AE doesn't garentee a one shot stop. --FIVETWOSEVEN 04:29, 13 August 2010 (UTC)

Everything the above guy said is dead on the money. And anyway Gunmaster, if the DE is so much better than a 9mm handgun, I'll reiterate-why do NO military or law enforcement agencies in the world carry them, yet many still carry 9mm weapons? Even units who have the freedom to choose their own sidearms do not carry Desert Eagles, why do you think that is? Sure, you can argue that 9mm isn't the best round in the world and that's fine, but it doesn't change the fact that a 9mm handgun is STILL better for combat use than a DE, unless your definition of "combat" includes shootouts with elephants or something. DKS01 08:28, 13 August 2010 (UTC)

Okay for starters don't get worked up, I'm not trying to start a 9mm/other calibres war..... And no, I didn't get anything know about guns from video games. I have just always had an interest in firearms for the last 8 years of my life, since age 8 all the while I've simply been gathering information through good old books. I can promise you that you'd be surprised. No shit, you ask me a question about any weapons specifications I can answer it. Without Google. Now, the 9x19mm Luger Parabellum round has many advantages, such as ammunition capacity, but it is seriously lacking in power, fair and square. But as a military calibre, things such as capacity may be an issue. Take the Colt M1911 .45 ACP (11.43x23mm) pistol. The .45 round is the optimal military calibre in terms of power, but that particular weapon takes only 7 rounds. Most weapons in that calibre can't take high amounts of ammunition, and at the time of the XM9 handgun trials Beretta and SIG-Sauer took the spotlight, ruining the chances of weapons like the Spanish Star "Megastar" .45ACP, and the HK MK 23 MOD 0 SOCOM .45ACP. Those ones can take 12 rounds of ammunition. And my definition of combat includes circumstances that can never be forseen. Thus you must always be prepared. If I was put on the battlefield with one handgun of my choice it would definatly and without a doubt be a Hecklar & Koch Mark 23 Model 0 .45.Comparativly puny Glock 17s, Berreta M92-SB-Fs, and USP-9s wouldn't come close. But don't get me wrong, 9mms have their time and place. It can sometimes come down to personal preference; mine just doesn't run to the 9mm Parabellum round. One more thing, my views on the 9mm are much different when your talking sub-machine guns. I would never diss the HK MP5, it's variants, the IMI Uzi, it's variants, and definatly not the Steyr AUG Para SMG. About the Desert Eagle not being in service anywhere, it's obvious the NATO countries would look to their own country's weapons before adopting an Israeli weapon, and after the Glock started getting used by "over 65% of the world's military and police forces" as they claim, Israel decided to as well. Anyway I respect your argument but I hope you can also respect mine --Gunmaster12 15:37, 13 August 2010 (UTC)

Isreal wasn't using the Desert Eagle BEFORE they adopted the Glock. People don't carry it because it's NOT A COMBAT HANDGUN. DKS01 21:43, 13 August 2010 (UTC)

Seeing how you like the MK23 it definatly shows where you come from. If you were to hang around a non HK-biased gun board like TheHighRoad.org, you would know that its a huge over priced pistol. The Desert Eagle is FAR FROM A COMBAT PISTOL PERIOD. Not even the country that made it issues it. <-------- Read that. Judging by your weapon choices I see that you come from Rainbow 6 Vegas, not real life. Although FMJ 9mm isn't the best I know that but when you can have hollow points its perfectly fine. If I were to fight in a official Military force I would carry either a SIG Sauer P220, FNP 45 or I would still pack my 9mm Hi Power. The MK23 is one of the SOCOM issue weapons yet it is rarely carried, why you may ask? Because its do big and unwieldy. The Navy SEALs have choosen the 9mm P226 over a .40 or a .45 because its shot placement. By the time you lug your MK23 or Desert Eagle out of the holster I would have already draw and double tapped you with my Hi Power.--FIVETWOSEVEN 16:02, 13 August 2010 (UTC)

Okay, let's get something straight. I DO NOT GET MY WEAPON KNOWLAGE OR PREFERENCES FROM VIDEO GAMES. I've never played rainbow 6. i will say this though, good on you for your choice of the SIG-Sauer, best quality gun brand i think. I'm not HK-biased, i just know that in a firefight between a 12 round .45 MK 23 and say as you said a 13 round 9mm Browning, the Mk 23 owner would have the edge. And about the SIG having better shot placement...you can get the P220 in .45, .357SIG, and .40 S&W...all of these would be better than the 9mm version except for capacity. And just one more thing.....have you ever fired a full size assault rifle in real life, not COD4? Just curious--Gunmaster12 18:11, 13 August 2010 (UTC)

You know the people the Mk 23 was designed for don't use it, right? If it was such an awesome gun, why do even THEY not carry it? DKS01 21:43, 13 August 2010 (UTC)

Full size assault rifle? I didn't know there were small and mediun sizes. I haven't fired a full auto assault rifle yet but I've fired plenty of AR-15s and AK 47s a M1A, I even got a AR 15 of my own. The only full auto I've fired was a M60 when I was young. The SIG P220 only comes in .45 now, never was in .357 SIG or .40 S&W. Only 9mm, 7.62 parabellum, .38 super, and .45 ACP. How does a MK23 owner have the edge? The thing is too big and unwieldy, can't conceal carry it at all and would be slow to draw from a holster. Only has a larger round but only counts if you can actually shoot faster than your opponent. Another story I have is one cop had to draw and shoot someone drawing his gun, the cop fired and hit him with his .45 faster than the criminals 9mm yet the criminal still was able to complete the draw and shot and killed the cop then ran off and died later. Let me say again that the people this pistol is aimed at and issued by choice don't even like the MK23, the people that HAVE to use their weapons on a regular basis don't like it and they have experiance. Why do you want to carry it when you have no experiance? You obviously do get your preferances from video games because how else would you get your preferance of te MK23? Either that or you watch too many movies. What have you shot exactly and what do you own?--FIVETWOSEVEN 18:37, 13 August 2010 (UTC)

I have to back the little guy here, this isnt even about resident evil any more its just the pair of you dick measuring. I have no problem with 9mm but i love the Mk23, granted im a bigger guy and dont feel its 'too much gun' for me. I have no problems pulling and firing it at decent speed and accuracy, but remember its not about draw speed this isnt the wild west. Pistols are sidearms now, you wanna draw fast and double tap then take a colt SAA. If the kid prefers the Mk23 then dont just say its down to video games, the only game i know of where the MK23 is available is metal gear solid, and thats wank anyway. Personal preference is just that. Its down to the individual. Tho to remain un biased the desert eagle is in no way a combat pistol. --Captain Snikt 00:31, 14 August 2010 (UTC)

The Mk 23 has been available in every Rainbow Six game since RS3(and maybe earlier, I forget), and a "high tech" version(where the laser pointer is also capable of shutting down lights and electronics at a distance) of the Mk 23 is Sam Fisher's sidearm in the Splinter Cell games. It's also been used in the SOCOM game series, which I suppose is an appropriate place for it. These are all pretty popular, big name shooter games. DKS01 13:15, 14 August 2010 (UTC)

Double tapping with a SAA, thats a new one. I'm 6'4 but theres a point when a gun is too big. Where else would someone get a preferance for a gun when he hasn't most likely held or fired one? Definatly not through reading up on a gun board about it where those experianced with fire arms reside. I have no problem with shooting a .45 but I prefer my 9mm because of how slim it is and the cost of ammo is much less. Theres a difference in preference and picking something with research, and without it.--FIVETWOSEVEN 01:25, 14 August 2010 (UTC)

Yet again bub, personal preference, too big for you might be a good fit for someone else -- 02:12, 14 August 2010 (UTC)

I'll agree about preference, but remember it STARTED with him saying Carlos shoulda kept the Desert Eagles over a 9mm, with both FiveTwoSeven and myself disagreeing with him. It seems to me his bringing up other calibers(we didn't initiate that discussion) was him (successfully) trying to direct the conversation away from the original argument, that being the fact that the DE is not a combat handgun(which you agreed with as well), and would not and is not carried by any combat professional(which Carlos is supposed to be). DKS01 13:15, 14 August 2010 (UTC)

If he owns a MK23 than he can do as he wants and I don't care. If hes just read about it, watched it in movies, or used it in a video game than his decision is stupid. I have used many different kinds of guns and have decided on a 9mm Hi Power. My decision was through experiance, not armchair-commandoing.--FIVETWOSEVEN 03:44, 14 August 2010 (UTC)

Hey, Im british, ill never knock the hi power - Captain Snikt

I agree, the Desert Eagle is NOT a combat handgun, it's large, heavy, loud, very expensive, and not very reliable, but it has two pros: stopping-power and accuracy. The .50AE, 44 Magnum, and 357 Magnum almost guarantees a one-shot kill. In media, the only thing I've seen the Desert Eagle's ballistic damage realistically portrayed in so far is L4D2. Ballistic damage wise, it is the most realistic weapon in the game. I fully believe that the Desert Eagle in real life is capable of blowing off limbs and bursting heads like melons (in fact, even the 7.62X39mm round is known in real life to cause heads to explode!). Not that I'm praising it, I sill think it's not a good combat pistol, although it could be a very effective weapon in the right hands.

The MK23 SOCOM on the other hand, IS a combat handgun. Yes, the Navy Seals dislike it because it's large and heavy but I think it makes up for this with it's durability, reliability, accuracy, controllably, and it's 12 round magazine. I think that the pros far outweigh the "cons", how many other ,45 ACP handguns (besides maybe the SIG P220) can get 2 inch groupings at 50 meters right out of the box. Its long 5.9 inch, O-ring equipped barrel combined with it's recoil-reduction buffer (which keeps the muzzle-flip very minimal) is the reason why it's so accurate. I think the Special Forces need to suck it up, because size and weight shouldn't be an issue(unless excessive like the Desert Eagle) when it comes to a highly effective combat pistol. True, I've never held a SOCOM pistol but I doubt it's not nearly as "big a deal" as the Desert Eagle, which fits my hand just fine, and I'm just a skinny white guy that's 6 feet tall and weighs less than 180 lbs!

I'm 6'4 and 150lbs. While the MK23 may be a combat handgun, doesn't mean that its the best or good. Its a sidearm, not a main arm so why would you really want 2" groupings at 50 yards, that range you should be using your main arm. The closet I've come to a MK23 was a airsoft gun and its huge, there is no need for a SIDEARM to be that big. If the experts don't like it, than why do you?--FIVETWOSEVEN 19:08, 14 August 2010 (UTC)

Because it's a great sidearm. Size and weight IS not a factor to me when it comes to superb practicality. As I mentioned before, it is very durable, reliable, accurate, and controllable (because of its recoil-reduction buffer which keeps the muzzle-flip down which means it stays on target better). I also forgot to mention that it's also corrosion-resistant and can take P+ armor-piercing rounds. Whats wrong with a pistol that can hit a Tango through the eye at 50 meters with a suppressor. Isn't it better for a weapon to exceed expectations than to just conform to them? I've known this stuff about the MK23 since I was 12, and I'm 20 now. Yes, it may not be the best handgun EVER MADE and you may not like it, but you still can't deny that it's a great handgun.

If FiveTwoSeven would think back to the beginning of the conversation you will see that I never actually SAID that the IMI Desert Eagle was a combat handgun. You keep saying "it's not a combat handgun, it's not a combat handgun" but honestly I don't know why the hell you believe that's what I think.O_o Beats me where you got that from. And about the MK23's weight, no-one else seems to be complaining. You obviously think that the 9mm is best, well, i'm not going to destroy your delusions, it's your loss. In reference to a previous comment, by "full-size assault rifle" i mean not a "Short Assaut Rifle", or SAR. Plenty of them exist. For example the Micro Galil, Colt Commando, and AK 74U. And yes, i have shot a full=size assault rifle. I'm in the Army Cadets and havefired the Steyr F88 AUG 5.56x45mm, both with blanks and live ammunition. And thank you to all the people on my side of the argument, good to see some people have the right idea.--Gunmaster12 08:57, 15 August 2010 (UTC)

Is that all the experiance you have with actually shooting guns? Thats not enough to claim something is better. Why do you think the MK 23 is so good when the professionals hate it? Even though I dislike H&K, I wouldn't care if you liked the USP 45. --FIVETWOSEVEN 14:31, 15 August 2010 (UTC)

I have got to agree with Gunmaster 12. I own both a Browning 9mm and a MK23 and the MK23 is better by far. Sure it's heavier but I get way more accuracy with it than the Browning. Not to say that the Browning is not a good weapon.

Sign your posts. I disregard posts by anoms. --FIVETWOSEVEN 14:23, 15 August 2010 (UTC)

Just pointing out: That wasn't GM's original argument. He stated that the Desert Eagle was better than the USP. This eventually developed into whether the MK.23 or Browning Hi-Power were better.

Wasn't specific to the Hi Power, it was more of 9mm vs. 45acp at that point. How is firing a short assault rifle different or give you less experiance than a full size? It turned into a argument like that because I was defending the 9mm, its delusional to think that its weak.--FIVETWOSEVEN 14:22, 15 August 2010 (UTC)

The 9mm is not weak in itself, just compared to the .45 Auto. Thats the reason i said that the MK23 is better than the Browning because it has greater power to capacity RATIO. Add the superb accuracy and i think that it it better. Firing a Short Assault Rifle doesn't give you more experience, nor was that my point. I didn't say that i had more experience than FiveTwoSeven because of that difference. I guess i just made that classification because the original conversation was about handguns.--Gunmaster12 14:39, 15 August 2010 (UTC)

http://intrencik.com/357sig_files/Handgun_gel_comparison.jpg While .45acp is better to shoot someone with, it doesn't seem that much better. The biggest thing that gets me about this caliber war is the fact that alot of people believe that .45acp is the end all, instant-death-ray-gun. One thing that bothers me is your choice of gun. There are many other .45s that are better and hold more. The USP 45 holds the same but is more manageable with its smaller size. The Glock 21 holds 13 rounds of .45, the Springfield XD holds 13, and my favorite out of the high cap .45s, the FNH FNP 45. Holds 14 rounds of .45acp. --FIVETWOSEVEN 15:20, 15 August 2010 (UTC)

The USP45 Tactical is less accurate and probably only has a range of 25 meters as opposed to the SOCOM's 50 meters, and the other pistols you mentioned are not worthy for military combat conditions. By the Skinny White Guy ;)

Better? For accuracy? Not even close. Those pistols that hold more, we're talking 1-2 rounds difference. It doesn't make them better.You put one in the chamber plusa full mag that's 13rds. And again it's personal preference. I happen to like the look of the MK23 better than others. No, I don't think that the .45ACP is a "end all, instant-death-ray-gun" But if you have two guys, and one gets hit by 9mm, the other gets hit with a .45, both at the same distance, same barrel length, same rifling, hell, same weapon frame, there is MORE chance that the .45 will take him out first shot. --Gunmaster12 15:41, 15 August 2010 (UTC)

Looks < Function. There are many people that own SIGs or any other good looking pistol yet carry a Glock. I personally find the MK23 ugly because of its large trigger guard. Plus it depends on who the better shot is more than capacity, gun, or cartridge. --FIVETWOSEVEN 16:04, 15 August 2010 (UTC)

My take on the issue: it more personal preference than anything. Sure, the .45 may be slightly more powerful than the 9, but there is not a man alive who wants to be shot with either of them. 99% of it is determined by how well the shot is placed, and the skill of the shooter. A hit to the heart by either of them is effective. But, there is no handgun on Earth you can absolutely gaurantee will kill someone with one shot. I am a fan of a .45, but in skilled hands, either one is lethal. -SasquatchJim

Well said --FIVETWOSEVEN 19:34, 15 August 2010 (UTC) I do agree to a point -- 13:04, 16 August 2010 (UTC)

While I agree with FIVETWOSEVEN for the most part about the 9mm and all. I mean hell, my home defense gun is a Browning BDA380 even though I was ever so close to convincing my dad to get the tu-tone Glock 17 when it was on sale. Anyway, I will have to agree with Gunmaster12 that Carlos should have kept the DEs. Don't forget, these guys aren't fighting people who are shooting back but fighting zombies and everybody knows the best way to kill zombies is the shoot them in the head and with his DEs firing a massive .44 magnum, it should probably give Carlos at better chance and blowing off the head than with a 9mm. Just my 2 cents. --ThePotShot 00:37, 16 August 2010 (UTC)

I'm going to have to disagree with you there, PotShot. The 9mm will normally be easier to control than the .44 magnum. Therefore, 9mms will allow him to have faster follow-up shots and more accurate fire. While I've never fired a Desert Eagle .44, I've shot enough 9mm to know that it's powerful enough to pierce the skull, yet recoil is soft enough for accurate fire. Also, 9mm is more common, allowing you to have more available in something like that. BTW, I'm a member of the zombie-survival forum the ZSDW. Look me up on there. -SasquatchJim

  • Note: I came across as sounding like the .44 was terrible. I didn't mean to sound that way. I like the .44; but it seems like in a situation where headshots are required, a lighter-recoiling rounds is better.
Now that I think about it, that does make more sense. I've never fired or even held a DE before(almost nobody sells them in my area) so I have no idea how heavy it is. This brings up another question, if LJ still had a DE and ammo, did Carlos simply lose his desert eagles or what as he and LJ could have pooled the ammo since their DEs are the same caliber.--ThePotShot 02:05, 16 August 2010 (UTC)

.44 ammo is bulky, plain and simple. Meaning its heavier, and you can haul around less of it. The capacity is also a issue, which is ultimatly why I'm not a huge fan of any DE. It's heavy, has a decent kick, the ammo is heavy, and it barely holds any rounds. While a person with a DE might leave a bigger hole, the person with the 9mm will still be shooting when the other person has to reload. And if by some miracle you can hit their brain every shot, the round doesn't matter. You need to hit their brain, not blow their head off. Meaning overall: 8 tries, or 15? Your choice. Don't get me wrong, if you feel safe with the .44 and are used to it, by all means, use it. It's just not the almighty gift from Gun Jeebus.

I gotta jump back in here, I hate anything dual weilding desert eagles. I know res e is hardly realism at its pinnacle but that was just a lil too stupid, the USP's are the smarter choice and this is from a guy who does love the mk23, chunky trigger guard n all. But since we still ae on zombies and 45 auto if you wanna see this done right watch dawn of the dead (the remake). Most of you probably have to be fair, but for the final showdown most of the survivors pack glock 21's (even tho they only have the post ban 10 round mags). Probably the smartest choice for the occasion, nice chuncky 45 round, half decent mag cap, light durable and easy to use, glocks might not win any beauty pagents but damn they make for a good peice - Captain Snikt

Respect to Cap'n Snikt, but you don't have to diss a weapon just because of it's TRIGGER GUARD. wtf that's not much of an issue on any weapon's accuracy or stopping power-- 13:04, 16 August 2010 (UTC)

I like how that guy's name is "Gunmaster," but he doesnt know that much about guns, or from what I've heard, anything. The Desert Eagle is just as bad as any one of these smart guys will say. I know from personal experience that the 9x19mm is a fine round, I personally don't trust it for my home defense, for that I have the pistol that has never failed me, my 1911. Like many people have said, its not so much caliber, as shot placement. This is very true. Look at the AR-15 compared to an AK47, AR has a smaller round (by far)but is much more accurate. That right there is the key. Your firearm must be accurate, but so must you be. Just because you have a .50 Caliber Action Express, doesn't mean you're ready to start WWIII. Of course I still prefer the .45 ACP, but if you're good, a 9x19mm will do the trick... thats my 2 cents anyway --User:PunisherDave

Thats how I see it when it comes to 9mm vs. .45acp, personal preference, but its always helpful to have good arguments to back it up.--FIVETWOSEVEN 02:16, 16 August 2010 (UTC)

I do not own or have fired any guns, but i have a little opinion about this matter. The fact that carlos changed to USP´s isn´t bad. The bad thing is that the guns appear to be compact ones. Giving a shorter barell and worse accuracy. I personally think that the .357 Desert Eagle is a decent gun. A relatively big pistol caliber, not so bad capacity (9) and as far as I know, good stopping power. Not to be used in military, or in any regular combat situation. But when it comes to Resident Evil world, I´d rather prefer dual AA12´s to be shure I killed those things. This movies aren´t about the most reasonable gun to have. This is for the most overkilling badass scenario possible. I mean, if it wouln´t be so expensive, they´d had used samurai edges as their sidearms. But I think Alice´s pistols were a good choice.Thanks for your time reading my opinion ;)-thebarry1394

I'm pretty sure that those are standard USPs, they probably look like compacts from the angle of the shot when the screenshot was taken. Dual AA-12's? I don't think that is such a great idea, if you really want to make sure they are dead (even though they are already dead), I would just shoot it again. Isn't Zombieland's rule #4 doubletap? --ThePotShot 02:33, 16 August 2010 (UTC)
How about finding a minigun and holdw down the trigger while sweeping it left and right over and over again? Excalibur01 02:53, 16 August 2010 (UTC)

Dual AA12s? Great, the MW2 kids found this site. --FIVETWOSEVEN 03:37, 16 August 2010 (UTC)

FiveTwoSeven, I respect your argument but I still hold my place. The MK23 is a good gun, .45ACP is a good calibre, the Desert Eagle isn't a combat handgun (nor did I ever say it was) but for the requirements of the movie, (which will be watched by more people who know nothing about guns than those who do), I think that Carlos should have kept the Desert Eagles in Extinction. Not because the weapon is a better choice in real life, but because they have more of a cinematic presence than the HK USP Compact. When people see him blasting away at zombies in Vegas with USPs, they think "meh". But when they see him rappeling from a helicopter shooting the big, loud, scary Deagles, they think "Wow!"--Gunmaster12 13:09, 16 August 2010 (UTC)

And I've got to agree with FiveTwoSeven. Dual AA-12s? you would either have to hold them on different levels or set the up for left/right hand operation to stop the shells from ejecting from one gun, ricocheting off the other and hitting you in the face. Its not so much of a problem with handguns, but with any rifles/shotguns it would be a big problem. Apart from all those potential problems, the aiming would suffer REALLY badly, even with the spread shotguns have. You would chew through ammo like crazy too.(Ditto for minigun) sorry, but you probably couldn't get much worse than that in real life, but it would look good in a movie, as the Desert Eagle does. To the Barry1394: "the most overkilling badass senario possible" my point exacty. People who watch the movie want thrills. 9mm USPs don't have anything "wrong" with them but Desert Eagles are "badass" and have good looks, and noise.--Gunmaster12 13:09, 16 August 2010 (UTC)

To FiveTwoSeven: Respect man. You came up with some excellent points during the debate. Good on ya. Gunmaster12 signing out--Gunmaster12 13:09, 16 August 2010 (UTC)

Good point, GM. The directors chose them because people think they look cool. Similar to Alice's dual EVERYTHING in RE Apocalypse (and, from the looks of it, Afterlife.) -SasquatchJim

The way movies go, big guns = entertainment so I would agree.--FIVETWOSEVEN 20:40, 16 August 2010 (UTC)

and we all lived happily ever after - Captain Snikt

I agree, the USP9s make more sense in real life, but Desert Eagles work better for Cinema. ;) Their aren't many Action movies out their that the Desert Eagle doesn't at lest appear in. As for Carlos not having his Desert Eagles this movie. Remember at end of Apocalypse, when they were all captured. They had all they're weapons taken away, when they got free, LJ probably grabbed one of his Desert Eagles. That probably explains why in this movie LJ only has one Desert Eagle and and why Carlos now uses the USP9s. by the Skinny White Guy again. ;)

Where does this "DEs work better for cinema" stuff come from? Am I the only guy who doesn't just automatically associate "big" with "cool" when I watch movies? I mean shit, personally, I'd rather watch my action heroes wielding a USP or a Sig or M1911 than watch them look like douches with overly big guns trying to compensate for, ahem, smaller guns elsewhere(so deservingly mocked in Shoot Em Up I might add). DKS01 18:11, 19 August 2010 (UTC)
I agree with you, we ment that the "masses" like the big guns in movies. Personally I like the Desert Eagle but I whould rather use other pistols for fighting like USPs, 1911s, 92FSs, SIGs, or Glocks. ;)
  • @SkinnyWhiteGuy: He didn't take Carlos' DE. LJ's is one of the gold-plated ones he had back in Apocalypse. Carlos' were black.

I ment LJ's DE, I said LJ probably grabbed one of HIS Desert Eagles. -_- sorry, I guess I worded it badly. Carlos probably did not grab his own DEs, that's why he does not have them in Extinction.

  • DKS01: I would too. That's one reason why I liked both Dawn of the Deads; the guns used were actual things people could come across, not "movie guns." However, the general public thinks differently. They want the biggest, most powerful weapons they can find. Case in point, the AA12. -SasquatchJim

I personally do prefer seeing guns that make sense but the general public is much different. Why do you think Collateral is one of my favorite movies yet wasn't that popular? Most of the people nowadays aren't to bright in my observations so big = good to them.--FIVETWOSEVEN 19:54, 19 August 2010 (UTC)

I agree 100%, 527. What are some other movies that actually use realistic guns? I already mentioned DOTD-SasquatchJim.

I too agree, and Collateral is one of my favorite movies too. ^_^ the SkinnyWhiteGuy

I don´t want to start a blog discussion here (but since we all did...) but why when someone talks about dual wielding guns that person must have taken that idea from Call of Duty Modern Warefare 2? I mean, good game (as far as I know, because I haven´t played it), but it hasn´t invented the dual thing. I think it became famous with John Woo films (I don´t know if I wrote his namme correctly). Why do you FIVETWOSEVEN think Im a kid, and I am a MW2 fan. Dude, you are triying to degradate every person that has a different point of view. Correct me if Im wrong, but that´s what I can see. PD: I know Im not so good writing in english, but, c´mon, the only thing you could understood was "dual wielding AA12´s"? Well, at least, I could give my opinion again. And triying to end this discussion, it´s a fictional movie, there are zombies, and monster, and super powers, and you care about the gun choise?-Thebarry1394

The reason why is because that sounds like something a MW2 obssesed person would say. Its retarded to dual wield shotguns like a AA 12 because of how big they are. I am not trying to insult people for their choices unless its a bad choice. It was the combination of AA12 and dual wielding that just screams MW2 nerd.--FIVETWOSEVEN 17:36, 20 August 2010 (UTC)

Haha, the aa12 was the first powerfull auto gun that came across my mind that time. Nevermind. And as a principle, I don´t take gun preferences from video games. That´s just stupid and unethical to post in such a proffesional comunity (I mean, the page´s contributors have taken the imfdb job really serious, to me its an insult to take game preferences in here) [and i tought about the aa12 becouse of the frag 12 (saw that in future weapons) because it would help to kill most of the RE monsters ;)]Thanks for your comments and respect to all the other contributors (the 9mm tactical facts will help me in a novel I´m writting)-thebarry1394

Just to be fair, on the dicussion page for Resident Evil Afterlife, there WAS a guy who thought MW2 basically created dual-weilding. That's something we had in our minds. I see what you mean, though, Barry. You weren't trying to make a point specifically for dual AA12s.-SasquatchJim

@FiveTwoSeven: Glad to see you see my point. Thats the main reason I said Carlos should have kept the Deagles, the calibre thing was a side-point.So no hard feelings. (I kind of feel sorry for Oded Fehr, I would love to see the look on his face if he saw this debate) hahaha :P--Gunmaster12 04:21, 23 August 2010 (UTC)

From what I've read, I don't think anyone was dissing Oded Fehr. He was awesome in this movie, especially in his final moments in which he was quite epic. :) - Mr. Wolf 05:54, 24 April 2011 (CDT)

So he should switch from a handgun that has better controllable recoil, higher magazine capacity, and not oversized, for something over powered, way too fucking big, half the magazine capacity, and the recoil could possibly snap his wrist if fired one handed, when he's fighting enemies that only die from headshots, so fire power is a little factor, and higher capacity matters because zombies could gang up on him while reloading? great logic...bigger guns and bigger bullets don't mean better guns and better bullets, the desert eagle is nothing more then an overlarge piece of junk that's only featured in horrendously lame action movies because they want the "hero" to look cool. bottom line, when fighting enemies that require headshots to drop before they gang up on you, a 15+1 round handgun beats the hell out of a 7+1 round bulky piece of metal trash.Kornflakes89 17:57, 27 July 2011 (CDT)

As has been pointed out, it's been five years since the events of Apocalypse, so the logical conclusion is that Carlos simply ran dry of ammo for the DEs before he could find more, hence he took to carrying pistols that he had access to ammunition for. It's a gun vs no gun situation. And being that RE zombies die with a single round to the brain, caliber is indeed a moot point here. So in respect to that, magazine capacity becomes of higher importance than the size of your bullet. Spartan198 08:29, 3 February 2012 (CST)

If it's not too late to get in the argument then I'd like to suggest a point as to why a nine mm pistol might be better for use as a combat firearm than a Desert Eagle - it's all about the extra capacity giving the shooter more chances to hit their target. A .50 bullet may cause more damage to the target but with a Desert Eagle you only get about seven chances to make a killshot. Many nine mm pistols have more than twice that number. If I ever had take a pistol with me into combat (unlikely), then I'd definitely want the larger capacity that comes with a smaller round. Stickie (talk) 16:29, 26 March 2013 (EDT)

Alice's 1911's

Are we sure that those are ParaOrd LDAs? Because honestly, I don't think they are. They don't have the grooves (The correct word escapes me at the moment) on the slide, which are the biggest indicators of LDAs, so if she doesn't have them on hers, they're either using different slides, or aren't LDAs at all. Acora 04:47, 21 October 2010 (UTC)

Serrations. And you're right, they are absent, aren't they. Nite-Tacs, maybe?--PistolJunkie 04:55, 21 October 2010 (UTC)

Not all LDA's have the front serrations...the nite-Tac is a LDA without them.--Spades of Columbia 15:59, 21 October 2010 (UTC)

I just said Nite-Tacs.--PistolJunkie 21:42, 21 October 2010 (UTC)

...okay...I was informing Acora that not all LDA's have that feature...the nite-tac being one.--Spades of Columbia 22:22, 21 October 2010 (UTC)

Thanks to both of you, then. I'm not extremely familiar with ParaOrds, so I wasn't sure. But after looking up the Nite Tac, I'd have to agree that that's probably what they are. Acora 19:32, 1 November 2010 (UTC)

Lever rifle

I just watched the movie again and discovered one of the crazy survivors is using a lever action rifle can anybody identify it?

The lever action looked like a winchester 1894 model Balin21 14:40, 19 January 19, 2012

Umbrella Computer Guy's Glock

I think that was a continuity error. I just watched it last night and when he drew it, it looked like a G26 with a flat floor-plate 10-round magazine, but when he dropped it, it turned into a full size G17 (they possibly reused Clare's Glock 17). - Mr. Wolf 06:04, 24 April 2011 (CDT)

I'm not sure what it is exactly but it looks like it has the safety on the slide, so possibly some Smith and Wesson variant?Bristow8411 16:12, 31 January 2012 (CST)

Maybe this image will help better.


I capped a bigger version of the first part of the above picture, definitely a Smith & Wesson number series gun, probably 5900 series, looks like a 5946. The Kaptain 19:43, 31 January 2012 (CST)
