Never Say Die
This article currently has one or more unidentified weapons.
Never Say Die is a 1994 action movie directed by Yossi Wein. Franklin James (Billy Drago), a former Sgt. of a special unit, turns a self-proclaimed prophet and gathers "Garden of Eden" cult. FBI Agent Mike Roper (Todd Jensen) investigates his suspicious activities but when the Congressman Le Roux disappears during the visit in James' estate, Roper has to act immediately. The direct action of FBI agents faces armed response. Now the only man who can deal with insane Reverend is his former comrade-in-arms Blake (Frank Zagarino) whom James considers dead.
Note: the movie was filmed in South Africa that affects the choice of screen guns.
The following weapons were used in the film Never Say Die:
Angel (Robin Smith), Reverend James' enforcer, uses a Llama Comanche revolver during the massacre of Congressman Le Roux and his accompanying. This is possibly the same gun that was hold by James Booth in American Ninja 4 as the revolvers have absolutely identical outlook, and both movies share the same armourer Stuart Wentzel.
Snub nose revolver
FBI Agent Mike Roper (Todd Jensen) uses a snub nose revolver as his backup weapon, carried in leg holster. In the final scene same looking revolver is seen in hands of Reverend James (Billy Drago). It's hard to say even if this revolver is five- or six-shot that complicates the identification.
Numerous characters, including Blake (Frank Zagarino), FBI Agent Mike Roper (Todd Jensen), Col. Jack Redmond (Frank Notaro), local sheriff (Ted Le Plat), Reverend James' henchmen Amos (John Simon Jones) and Jacob (Phillip Ferreria), Congressman Le Roux's bodyguards (Gideon Emery and uncredited one), use Beretta 92SB pistols. In several continuity errors, 92SB pistols switch to Beretta 92FS (see below).
Beretta 92FS/Vektor Z88
Beretta 92FS pistols are also used by some of abovementioned characters (as the movie was filmed in South Africa, the pistols could be local produced Vektor Z88 version).
During most of the movie Reverend James (Billy Drago) carries a Walther MPK. Possibly the same MPK, only with removed folding stock, is briefly seen in hands of an FBI commando.
During the shootout in "Garden of Eden" several of FBI commandos carry Uzi SMGs.
When the commandos are seen in a boat prior to attack, the supposedly same character holds a Mini Uzi.
Smith & Wesson 916
In the climactic scene on the abandoned factory Blake (Frank Zagarino) uses a Smith & Wesson 916 shotgun. Some police officers also use S&W 916s.
Remington 870 SBS
During the shootout in "Garden of Eden" an FBI commando is armed with a pump action shotgun. It appears to be customized Remington 870 SBS, fitted with folding stock, taken from Vektor assault rifle, and saddle shell holder.
During the attack on "Garden of Eden" Mike Roper (Todd Jensen) is armed with an M16, fitted with Cobray CM203 grenade launcher. This version of M16 has slickside upper receiver and full fence lower receiver, like USAF M16 (Colt Model 604) and export Model 614. In a continuity error it switches to another version of M16 with grenade launcher (see below) and then back again.
Colt AR-15A2 Sporter II
In a continuity error Roper's M16A1 switches to a different version of M16 that has A1 upper receiver and Sporter lower receiver so appears to be a Colt AR-15A2 Sporter II. A CM203 launcher is also mounted on this rifle but the exact item is different. The same UBGL-fitted gun is later used by a police officer. M16s of same version are used by FBI agents in several scenes.
Customized Colt AR-15 Sporter Carbine
In the second half of the movie Mike Roper (Todd Jensen) is armed with an AR-15 carbine. Same looking gun is seen in hands of a commando during the attack on "Garden of Eden". It appears to be Colt AR-15 Sporter Carbine with custom barrel, shortened from standard 16" to about 10.5-11".
Vektor R5 (visually modified)
Vektor R5 assault rifles, visually modified to look like AKS-47, are used by James' henchmen, including Amos (John Simon Jones) and Jacob (Phillip Ferreria). In flashback James (at that time Sgt. Franklin James) (Billy Drago) and Blake (at that time Corp. Blake) (Frank Zagarino) both use fake AKs. Such mockups are often seen in South African films.
Angel's (Robin Smith) main weapon is a different version of mocked up R5, fitted with Cobray CM203 underbarrel launcher. Angel's rifle is briefly used by Amos while Angel drives a boat during the chase on the lake.
Unmodified Vektor R5s are used by FBI commandos and James' henchmen during the shootout in "Garden of Eden".
Customized IMI Romat
One of the FBI commandos is armed with an assault rifle that is a relatively compact weapon with handguard and forend of the stock in IMI Romat style but with a short barrel, lacking any flash hider, and with a long stick magazine, supposedly 30-round, similar in shape and size with the one of L2A1 version.
Winchester Model 1892
During the hostage situation in church one of local police officers holds a Winchester Model 1892.
During the attack on "Garden of Eden" one of FBI commandos is armed with an RPD light machine gun. When the machine gun is seen the first time, it is fitted with heat shield but when it is used in action, the heat shield disappears.
Cobray CM79LF Launcher
A police officer fires a Cobray CM79LF 37mm Launcher during the scene on the abandoned factory. The launcher fires smoke grenades.
What appears to be an M79 grenade launcher is also used by police in the same scene. Like CM79, it is also used for firing smoke grenades.
Cobray CM203 Launcher
Cobray CM203 launchers are used by Mike Roper (Todd Jensen) and Angel (Robin Smith). The first has the launcher mounted on M16 while the latter has it mounted on visually modified Vektor R5.
Mk 2 Hand Grenade
Mk 2 hand grenades are seen in several scenes. In the flashback scene several members of Jones' unit carry Mk 2s. Mike Roper (Todd Jensen) and his subordinate use Mk 2s during the hunt for Blake in the swamp. In the final scene Reverend James (Billy Drago) uses a pair of Mk 2s.
M26 Hand Grenade
During the boat chase Reverend James (Billy Drago) uses several M26 hand grenades against pursuing Blake's boat. This is possibly the South African M963 version.
When James throws an M26 grenade at Blake's boat, it switches to a Mills Bomb when reaches the target.
In the flashback scene James (Billy Drago) carries a 6-Kh-2 knife bayonet, standard for AK-47 assault rifle.
During the attack on "Garden of Eden" one of FBI commandos uses a 6-Kh-4 bayonet (known outside USSR as AKM Type II bayonet) as wire-cutter. The black furniture of the bayonet is typical for East German version. In the climactic scene on the abandoned factory Angel (Robin Smith) uses a 6-Kh-4 bayonet for close combat with Blake.
