The Quiet Earth (1985)

The Quiet Earth is a lesser known science fiction film directed by Geoff Murphey. Made in New Zealand in 1985, the film centers around with a scientist who is part of the mysterious "Project Flashlight", but wakes up one morning to find that he is the one of the last few people on earth due to a strange side-effect of the project. He meets other survivors and tries desperately to find why the earth was abandoned and when it will happen again.

The following firearms appear in the film The Quiet Earth:

Double Barreled Shotgun

While Zac Hobson (Bruno Lawrence) slowly starts to lose his sanity due to isolation, he plays around with a 12 Gauge Double Barreled Shotgun in his commandeered mansion.

At some point in the film, Zac ditches his Doubled Barreled Shotgun, and uses a Mossberg 500 for the rest of the film.

Two MGC CAR-15s are seen hanging on a wall towards the end of the movie. The carbine shows some specific features, most notably the flash hider, the odd carrying handle and the upward triangle at the end of the retractable stock. Most likely these carbines are just props.
