    What are some famous iconic guns featured in movies that are real?

    Colt 1911: Just about any WWI - Vietnam War movie (and actually, almost any non-western movie that has a gun in it)

    Thompson Submachine Gun: Just about any mobster movie

    Walther PPK and PPK/S: All the James Bond movies

    Colt 1851 Navy Conversion: Clint Eastwood in the Sergio Leone spaghetti westerns; A Fistful of Dollars, For a Few Dollars More and The Good, the Bad and the Ugly.

    Colt Model 1903 Hammerless: George C. Scott in Patton (in real life General Patton always carried on as his back up).

    Whatcha got?

    I liked Bruce w/ his two FA FNH PS-90s. In the Looper movie.

    More Iconic I guess would be Arnold with his "Uzi 9mm". He really knew his weapons, lol.

    Colt model 1855 Revolving Rifle! I saw one in a show yesterday and another today! Maybe not so iconic but I tilt my head back and howl at the moon whenever I see one!

    Pistolet Makarova (Makarov) in Die Hard with a Vengence (Jeremy Irons) or Tomorrow Never Dies (Pierce Brosnan) or Three Kings (Mark Wahlberg)...great pistol as well as an icon.

    My all-time favorite is the silliness in "The Crow."

    Specifically, most of the bad guys seem to have unlimited-capacity magazines, firing at will endlessly with their Glocks, etc.

    One character, on the other hand, has a Calico with 50-round magazine.

    How many shots does he fire, throughout the entirety of the movie? About half a dozen.

    In the big shootout scene, he is the only one who DOESN'T FIRE A SHOT, while the rest of the baddies are all firing like ammo cost what it did in 2007.
