Hard Rain is a 1998 American action film directed by Mikael Salomon starring Christian Slater and Morgan Freeman. The small town of Huntingburg is caught in monsoon-like rains. Even the dam threatens to burst and wash the town off the map. The town has now become a ghost town with very few people left. Now, of all times, the armored truck with all the cash in the area gets stuck there. The driver Tom and his uncle Charlie ask for help, but only the aging crook Jim and his troop come. Jim wants to take advantage of the chaotic situation to improve his economic situation. He plans to rob the money transport and take the contents for himself.


The following weapons were used in the film Hard Rain:

SIG-Sauer P226

Jim (Morgan Freeman) uses a Two-tone SIG-Sauer P226 with taped grips. In the cemetery scene, the gun is used by Tom too.

Ruger AC556

The Sturm Ruger AC556 is used in most of the film by police and criminals. Sometimes the rifle is swapped out with the semi-automatic only Ruger Mini-14GB which is nearly identical except for the absence of the full auto selector switch on the back of the receiver.
