Remington 870

During the confrontation with the Yakuza at the boss' house, Koh (Byron Mann) kills one mobster with his COP 357 Derringer and takes his Remington 870. The 870 used is fitted with a Butler Creek tactical forend, heat shield, door breacher, and pistol grip stock. This exact same shotgun was previously used in Timecop and later seen briefly in Reindeer Games (which had the same armorers).

This exact same shotgun also appeared in Reindeer Games, 3000 Miles to Graceland, Smokin' Aces 2: Assassins' Ball, Ballistic: Ecks vs. Sever, etc. (all of which had the same armorers as this movie).

Submachine Guns


Throughout the movie, Yakuza and Triad gangsters are seen using both long- and short-barreled versions of the M91S machine pistol. These custom-built weapons have been featured in several films and TV shows produced in British Columbia.

Several gangsters also use mock-ups of the Heckler & Koch MP5K built on what appear to be Kimel AP-9 assault pistols; these guns also appeared in other movies and TV shows filmed in British Columbia during the 1990s, such as M.A.N.T.I.S. and The X-Files.
