Hard Hunted is a 1992 action movie revolving around a stolen nuclear detonator hidden inside a jade statue. In order to prevent this device from falling into the hands of crime lord Kane, the US government sends a team of beautiful but lethal female agents to retrieve the device.
The movie is directed by Andy Sidaris as part of his “Bullets, Bombs and Babes” (a.k.a. “L.E.T.H.A.L. Ladies”) film series, where most of the leading ladies were ex-Playmates: Dona Speir (Donna) was in March 1984, Roberta Vasquez (Nicole) in November 1984 and Cynthia Brimhall (Edy) in October 1985.
Interestingly, some of the male cast are sons of well-known actors. In this case, Tony Peck (Lucas) is the son of Gregory Peck and Geoffrey Moore (Kane) is the son of Roger Moore.
The following weapons were used in the film Hard Hunted:
Smith & Wesson 622
Lucas (Tony Peck), director of the secret agency, carries a Smith & Wesson 622 as his side-arm during the mission in Hawaii. It can be distinguished from the stainless-steel Model 2206 by the alloy frame that has a different tone than the stainless steel slide.

Fake Browning AN/M2
The gyrocopter that Raven flies around in is equipped with several fake weapons. Next to the obvious fake missiles (seen moving along a string when launched!), there’s a machine gun in the front. At first sight it looks like a Browning AN/M2 but because of the limited space, it’s probably some metal tube with holes in it.
The cover shows Nicole with a Ruger MZ14 Bullpup and Donna with a Smith & Wesson 3913 “Ladysmith”, both guns are not actually used in the movie.
Several alternative covers for this movie circulate on the internet, most prominently (variations on) below two versions. The cover on the left seems most accurate, with Nicole (left) carrying an Intratec TEC-22 and Donna (right) carrying a Smith & Wesson 3913 “Ladysmith” (does not appear in the movie).
The cover on the right is actually mixing up two Andy Sidaris movies. Even though the cover says "Hard Hunted", the image shows Dona Speir (left) carrying a Steyr AUG A1 and Hope Marie Carlton (right) carrying a crossbow and a Davis P-32) as characters from Savage Beach.
The DVD menu shows a nice line-up of the movie’s female stars with guns, none of which are actually used by each of them in the movie. From left to right; Ava with a Heckler & Koch SP89, Edy with a Dan Wesson Model 15-VH, Nicole with a Smith & Wesson 622 and Donna with a Smith & Wesson 3913 “Ladysmith” (does not appear in the movie at all).
