Harley Davidson and the Marlboro Man is a 1991 action film set in the then future year of 1996, where a former rodeo rider (Don Johnson) and an outlaw biker (Mickey Rourke) get together with some friends to pull a heist in order to get money to save the Burbank bar of an old friend. The film was directed by Simon Wincer and written by Don Michael Paul.

The following weapons were used in the film Harley Davidson and the Marlboro Man:



Magnum Research Inc. Mark VII Desert Eagle

Harley Davidson (Mickey Rourke) obtains a Desert Eagle Mark VII near the beginning from the thug holding up the gas station. He then gives it to Marlboro (Don Johnson) as a birthday present, who uses it throughout the rest of the movie. Marlboro identifies it as a ".44 Mag Desert Eagle, 8 in the clip, one in the pipe".

Harley Davidson (Mickey Rourke) examines the Desert Eagle that was taken away from the robber (somewhat foolishly, his finger is on the trigger and it is pointed close to his face).

Marlboro opens fire with his Desert Eagle Mark VII while in the aircraft boneyard. This appears to be the AMARC at Davis-Monthan AFB in Arizona.

Ruger Super Blackhawk

Harley Davidson (Mickey Rourke) obtains a Ruger Super Blackhawk with imitation ivory grips near the end of the movie and uses it in the final battle. It is rumored that the weapons in the film are converted to .454 Casull, but this is unclear (see 'Trivia' section below).

Ruger Redhawk

After his Steyr AUG is empty, Alexander (Daniel Baldwin) draws a stainless Ruger Redhawk revolver and takes Marlboro Man hostage with it. Marlboro later gets ahold of the Redhawk.

Smith & Wesson Model 686

Two Smith & Wesson Model 686 revolvers are carried by the two armored car guards (Jordan Lund and Steve Tannen). They are then seized and used by both Harley Davidson (Mickey Rourke) and Marlboro (Don Johnson).

Glock 17

LAPD Officer Virginia Slim (Chelsea Field) carries a Glock 17 as her duty pistol and draws it when she pulls Marlboro over. This is over a decade prior to the Glock being offically approved as a sidearm for the LAPD.

All the Kevlar Trenchcoat-wearing henchmen including their leader Alexander (Daniel Baldwin) carry Steyr AUGs with 16" barrels (versus the standard 20").

Submachine Guns

John Taffin mentions in one of his books ("big bore handguns" or "big bore sixguns") that the Ruger used in the movie was customized by gunsmith Andy Horvath. It seems that someone from the movie's crew read an article by Taffin about his own Ruger, built by Horvath. The producers tried to Borrow Taffin's revolver but he declined and suggested them to contact Horvath. The gunsmith then built several revolvers for the movie and (reportedly) for Don Johnson's and Mickey Rourke's personal use. It is doubtful that the revolvers used in the movie were actually converted to .454 Casull.
