Get Rich or Die Tryin'
Get Rich or Die Tryin is a 2005 semi-autobiographical crime drama, starring 50 Cent. The film is loosely based on 50 Cent's early life, and contains several events from his real life. The film co-stars Terrence Howard, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, and Bill Duke.
The following weapons were used in the film Get Rich or Die Tryin':
Marcus Greer (50 Cent) uses a 2nd generation Glock 17 as his primary firearm in the film. The Glock changes between a Glock "Non Gun" in several scenes. Justice (Tory Kittles) also uses a Glock 17 during the assassination attempt. He fires 9 rounds into Marcus' body, who amazingly survives. 50 Cent, whose life this film is based on, has survived a similar incident in real life.
Glock "Non Gun"
Junebug (Mpho Koaho) uses a Glock "Non Gun" to kill two police officers who are camping outside gangster Levar's house. One of Raoul's (Walter Alza) accomplices also uses a "Non Gun" Glock in the film. Non Guns are used when blanks are not needed, or deemed too dangerous when filming a scene. Non Guns only produce a flash and a puff of smoke and have no moving parts, which make them extremely safe to use in any conditions.
One of the cash machine operators during the robbery in the beginning of the film uses a nickel Taurus PT99AFS to fire at Marcus' crew. Kyrl (Omar Benson Miller) also chambers a Taurus during one of Marcus' recording sessions.
"Non Gun" Beretta Inox
Several Beretta 92FS Inox "Non Guns" make appearances in the film, obviously standing in for the real 92FS Inox. Raoul (Walter Alza) uses a "Non Gun" Inox during the shootout at a club (crippling Antwan), and to shoot up a recording session of Majestic's protege rap-star Dangerous (Michael Miller). Bama (Terrence Howard) also uses a Non Gun Inox during the climax of the film, to fire on Majestic (Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje) as he tries to stab Marcus with his cane-sword.
Justice (Tory Kittles) uses a SIG-Sauer P226 during the robbery in the beginning of the film. The store guards also have P226 pistols. Bama (Terrence Howard) disarms and uses one of the SIG-Sauer P226 pistols during the robbery, along with his P14-45. Raoul (Walter Alza) drops a SIG-Sauer P226 as Marcus (50 Cent) comes to retaliate for the club shootout. Bama also has a P226 during one of Marcus' recording session. He offers it to Marcus, as Marcus states they have to get rid of Majestic.
"Non Gun" M1911A1
Bama's Para-Ordnance P14-45 changes into a flashpaper M1911A1 replica a few times during the opening robbery.
Smith & Wesson Model 36
A Korean store clerk uses a Smith & Wesson Model 36 to shoot two young kids who try to rob his store in the film. You can bare make out the Smith & Wesson -style cylinder latch in the scene.
One of the cash machine operators uses a Remington 870 with an Express tactical pistol grip during the robbery.
One of Majestic's (Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje) thugs uses an AKMS to fire on Colombians during a drive-by. The AKMS appears to be custom fitted with a side-folding stock usually fitted to a paratrooper model Sa vz. 58 V. A similar setup is seen in the silm Face/Off.
Junebug (Mpho Koaho) inspects a Ruger Mini-14 fitted with a scope in a car after the Colombian hit. One of the Columbians also uses a Ruger Mini-14 during the same scene to shoot up the car with Junebug and thugs.
