Romancing the Stone is a 1984 adventure film starring Kathleen Turner as Joan, a romance novelist who gets caught up in a real life South American adventure when she is forced to find a mysterious treasure in order to rescue her sister. During her quest, she is assisted by Jack Colton (Michael Douglas), a bird smuggler. The film was directed by Robert Zemeckis (Back to the Future) and the cast included Danny DeVito and Zack Norman. Douglas, Turner and DeVito would later reunite for the 1985 sequel The Jewel of the Nile.

The following weapons were used in the film Romancing the Stone:


Remington 870 Wingmaster (Left Handed)

Jack Colton (Michael Douglas) carries a left-handed Remington 870 Wingmaster shotgun with shortened barrel as his main firearm in the film. (Michael Douglas himself is not left-handed.) In the first scene featuring the shotgun he fires it nine times without reloading, even though the gun does not hold that many rounds.

Japanese Contract Smith & Wesson New Model No.3

A nickel-plated Smith & Wesson New Model No.3 is used by Juan (Alfonso Arau) when Jack and Joan Wilder (Kathleen Turner) go to his villa. It appears to be a Japanese contract version: [1].

Ruger Mini-14 GB

Several Ruger Mini-14s are used by Zolo's personnel and Ira's men. One of them is seen used by Jack Colton (Michael Douglas). These Mini-14s are 'GB' or 'Government Barrel' variants, featuring the distinctive barrel with flash-hider and bayonet lug also used on the selective-fire Ruger AC556.

Winchester Model 1894 (probable)

Though very difficult to spot due to lack of screentime, one of Juans henchmen seem to carry the Winchester 1894.
