    Guns of "No Country for Old Men"

    Does anyone know exactly what guns were used in this movie?
    A man fires a rifle for many years, and he goes to war. And afterward he turns the rifle in at the armory, and he believes he's finished with the rifle. But no matter what else he might do with his hands - love a woman, build a house, change his son's diaper - his hands remember the rifle.

    Great - if unconventional and potentially frustrating - movie. The main bad guy (one of the best bad guys in recent memory, by the way), uses a suppressed semi-auto shotgun of some sort and what may have been a Tec-9. I have to admit, I'm usually staring at the guns trying to figure out what they are, but this movies was so engrossing I didn't pay close enough attention... :(

    There is also a nickle (or was it chromanated? ) 1911, some AKs, an MP5K (or similar), and various other firearms here and there - all pretty accurately depicted (except for a severe lack of recoil on the auto shotgun in a few scenes).

    I don't know if it's out on DVD yet, but it will be soon if it isn't already. I'll warn you again - it's untraditional. It's based on a book by a notoriously grim, violent, and open-ended author, and directed by the guys who did Fargo, Blood Simple, and Miller's Crossing. Don't expect the feel good movie of the year...

    Just as a point of information, I believe it won the recent Academy Award for best picture, or at least was one of the movies nominated. Don't you guys go to the movies? Too busy shooting at the range, I guess.

    I'm not sure about the model, but there was a stainless steel 1911 used pretty prominently throughout the movie by Josh Brolin. I especially liked the scene where he had to jump into the river to evade a dog, then he utilized some sort of drill to clear and reload the wet gun in order to save himself.





    The best "gun" in the movie, IMO was the captive bolt cattle gun the BG used to silently dispatch his victims.

    Here's a screen shot from the film. Is it a Remington 11-87?

    Forearm doesn't look quite right to me for an 11-87.....and it looks like there might be some engraving on the side plate. I don't think I've ever seen that on an 11-87. Not sure though......

    OPFOR,

    Engrossing, if frustrating, movie. It is NOT a feel-good flick, as someone mentioned.

    Like you, I was too busy watching to notice the guns, except for the 1911 and the shotty.
