Package, The (1989)
The Package is a 1989 thriller starring Gene Hackman as a US Army Special Forces sergeant who loses the prisoner he was transporting from Germany to the United States. He then discovers that the prisoner travelled under a false name and is actually part of a conspiracy involving high ranking officers in both the American and Russian military during top secret nuclear arms treaty negotiations. The film was directed by Andrew Davis (who would later direct Tommy Lee Jones in Under Siege and The Fugitive.)
The following weapons were used in the film The Package:
WARNING! THIS PAGE CONTAINS SPOILERS!
Several conspirators use the Beretta 92F in the film. Thomas Boyette (Tommy Lee Jones) is seen using a suppressed Beretta in the climax of the film. Also using the Beretta are Karl Richards (Ron Dean) and the conspirator who identified himself as Det. Ralph Burns (Juan Ramírez).
The fake MP (Michael Skewes) driving the car at the end of the film pulls a suppressed Makarov PM pistol. Strangely, the gunshot sounds unsuppressed when he fires the weapon (possibly because even a suppressed shot sounds loud inside a car).
Sergeant First Class Johnny Gallagher (Gene Hackman) carries an M1911A1 as his sidearm. He is seen with it holstered in Germany and pulls it in both the garage and diner shootouts. General Carlson (Joe Greco) and his bodyguards draw their M1911's at the beginning of the film after they are ambushed.
Heckler & Koch P9S
One of the conspirators (Mik Scriba) opens fire on Gallagher in the diner with a Heckler & Koch P9S.
Smith & Wesson 659
One of the gunmen in the diner shootout uses a Smith & Wesson 659. The fake MP (Johnny Lee Davenport) left behind to guard Gallagher draws a S&W fitted with a suppressor.
Smith & Wesson Model 19
The snub version of the Smith & Wesson Model 19 Snub Nose Revolver is the main sidearm of Chicago PD Lt. Milan Delich (Dennis Franz).
Smith & Wesson Model 36
Lt. Col. Eileen Gallagher (Joanna Cassidy) carries a Smith & Wesson Model 36 in her briefcase and uses it during the garage shootout.
Smith & Wesson Model 60
The undercover officer Tony Maruss (Danny Goldring) is armed with a Smith & Wesson Model 60 in the diner.
Many of the US Army soldiers in West Germany and one of Gallagher's field soldiers in Germany carry the M16A1 as their main rifle.
The sniper rifle that Boyette (Tommy Lee Jones) uses in the assassination attempt at the end of the film is the Steyr AUG. It is fitted with the integral Swarovski 1.5x scope, and a suppressor. A duplicate Steyr AUG is found in the office of the real Walter Hanke (Kevin Crowley).
During the patrol in West Germany, Sgt. Johnny Gallagher (Gene Hackman) carries the Police folder variant of the Remington 870.
Ithaca 37 "Stakeout"
The gunman who identified himself earlier as "Ralph Burns" (Juan Ramírez) who flees the diner grabs an Ithaca 37 stakeout from behind the counter of a liquor store.
Heckler & Koch MP5A3
Co-conspirators disguised as West Berlin police are armed with Heckler & Koch MP5A3 submachine guns as they take into custody the hikers intercepted by Gallagher and his men in Germany.
Some of Gallagher's field soldiers in Germany are armed with the MAC-10 as they engage the assassination squad.
The Female Backpacker (Diane Timmerman) uses a Micro Uzi in the ambush of General Carlson in Germany.
The Male Backpacker (Charles Mueller) uses a Mini Uzi in the ambush of General Carlson in Germany.
An assassin fires a full size Uzi from a car at Gallagher and his men at the beginning of the film.
Tru Flite 37mm Super Long Range Gas Gun
A Tru Flite 37mm Super Long Range Gas Gun appears to be the launcher used to fire a tear gas cannister.
