Timecop is a 1994 science fiction action film that is an adaptation of a Dark Horse Comics graphic novel series. Set in the then-future year of 2004, where the power of time travel has been discovered, the film stars Jean-Claude Van Damme as a government agent working for the Time Enforcement Commission, an American law enforcement agency that must utilize this newfound science to catch criminals who have gone into the past to commit crimes. The film was directed by Peter Hyams, who would also direct Van Damme in 1995's Sudden Death. The film would spawn a DTV sequel as well as a short-lived ABC series.
The following weapons were used in the film Timecop:
"The Timecop Beretta" (modified Taurus PT99AF)
The "Timecop Beretta" is the featured weapon used by several characters in the film including Max Walker (Jean-Claude Van Damme), Sarah Fielding (Gloria Reuben) and Aaron McComb (Ron Silver). In reality, the Timecop handgun is a Taurus PT99AF housed in a custom futuristic shell. Most of the handguns are fitted with a laser sight and are painted black, but the one used by McComb is a different color. The prop would later be used in the TV series Stargate: Atlantis.
Timecop Personal Defense Weapon with racking foregrip (modified Desert Eagle)
This gun is used by Lyle Atwood (Jason Schombing) as a personal defense weapon when Walker goes back to the 1920's to arrest him. This science fiction Short barreled rifle (SBR) is in reality a modified .44 Magnum Desert Eagle Pistol, but with a larger futuristic shell. At the beginning of the scene, the weapon is represented as some sort of shotgun, with a 'rack' and then it fires large single shots which obliterate furniture, however, by the end of the scene, the weapon is depicted to be a pistol with a racking foregrip. Like the Timecop Beretta, this gun was used on Stargate: Atlantis. The show's armorer, Rob Fournier, specifically said in an interview that it's a .44 Magnum Desert Eagle, and he also mentioned that the gun was originally built for this movie even though it's been re-used on the Stargate shows. -MT2008 The weapons were made by Dlask Arms Corp.
At the film's beginning, a Confederate patrol transporting gold during the time of the Civil War is ambushed by the Stranger (a young Callum Keith Rennie) armed with a pair of short-barreled custom machine pistols fitted with custom muzzle brakes and laser sights that are known as the M91S. These custom-built weapons have been featured in several films and TV shows produced in British Columbia; Timecop is notable as the first appearance of these weapons in a feature film.
The rifles used by TEC guards when fired appear to be M16A1's with free floating barrels (and cylindrical shrouds) along with a Bell & Carlson Thumbhole stock.
When not being fired, all TEC guards are seen with MGC Replica M16 Rifles.
Remington 870 (Butler Creek Tac foregrip)
A Remington 870 shotgun fitted with a stock, heat shield, pistol grip, flashlight and Butler Creek tactical foregrip is seen used by one of McComb's henchmen that invade Walker's home in 1994. Walker is later seen with the shotgun. The Remington 870 from this movie also appeared - minus the flashlight - in the movies Crying Freeman, Dudley Do-Right, Reindeer Games, and some other movies and TV shows filmed in British Columbia.
