Walking Tall (2004)

Walking Tall is the 2004 feature film remake of the 1973 action drama that starred Joe Don Baker. Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson stars as Chris Vaughn, a US Special Forces veteran who returns to his small Washington town only to find it corrupted by a crime lord that runs a gambling and prostitution establishment. He then proceeds to clean the town up on his own, taking on the corrupt authorities and the various crime elements in town. The film's popularity would spark two sequels that starred Bo Svenson as Pusser and the remake would spawn two unrelated DTV sequels that starred Kevin Sorbo and were released in 2007: Walking Tall: The Payback and Walking Tall: Lone Justice.

The following weapons were used in the film Walking Tall:



Beretta 92FS

One of security guards in the casino draws a Beretta 92FS when Chris Vaughn starts a fight after catching a craps dealer using weighted dice. The same guard later uses the Beretta while attacking Chris' family.

Glock 17

Glock 17 pistols are used by Sheriff Stan Watkins (Michael Bowen), Deputy Ralston (Eric Breker), as well as Chris Vaughn (Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson) when he becomes Sheriff. When Watkins and two ex-deputies attack the police station, Chris gives his Glock to Deni (Ashley Scott), who helps distract Watkins at one point, but does little more than waste ammo.

Deni (Ashley Scott) fires Chris' Glock 17. Instead of the slide locking back, it simply "clicks" empty. Despite the fact that this is a common way filmmakers show that a pistol is 'empty', two reasons can explain this - (a) The last round is a dud or (b) The magazine follower has been worn and won't reliably hold the slide back on the last shot.

Colt M1911A1

One of ex-security guards in Chris' house is armed with a Colt M1911A1 pistol which he manages to hit Ray Templeton (Johnny Knoxville) in the leg with before he stabs him with a potato peeler. He later is shown to still be alive and is killed by Chris Sr. with the Remington 870 shotgun.

Ithaca 37

One of security guards in the casino wields a sawed-off Ithaca 37 shotgun when Chris assaults the place. Another ex-security guard also uses the Ithaca 37 when they attack Chris' family.

Mossberg 500

Booth (Kevin Durand), one of security guards in the casino, tries to shoot Chris with a Mossberg 500 before being subdued by him and his block of wood. When both Chris and Ray Templeton (Johnny Knoxville) are police officers, they are seen using Mossberg 500 shotguns throughout the film. Though to tough to tell, the guns in some shots appear to lack the top-rear receiver mounted switch safeties, indicating they might actually be Maverick Model 88s (the 'economy' model of the Mossberg 500).

Remington 870

Chris Vaughn (Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson) keeps a Remington 870 locked up in his shed. He takes it with him to assault the casino but then decides to use a 4"x4" block of wood instead. He later gives the 870 to his father, Chris Vaughn Sr. (John Beasley), who declines claiming he put his guns up long ago. When the ex-security guards attack Chris' family, Chris Sr. changes his mind, takes the 870 and kills the last man with it.

Assault Rifles

Colt Model 715

While Chris and Deni are in the police station, one of ex-deputies (Ty Olsson) opens fire at them with a Colt Model 715, the earlier Colt Canada C7 produced by the American Colt to serve Canadian forces, noted by M16A2 forward assist and shell deflector with M16A1 style sights. It is fitted with a 100 round Beta-C magazine.

Note: Since the film was 100% filmed in British Columbia, it is expected that the armorers were Canadian. The armorer, Ron Blecker, though a trained American soldier, is a common face on Canadian television, seen as a background soldier (and military tech advisor) on Canadian-shot shows like Battlestar Galactica and Stargate SG-1. Blecker's crew and group are based out of Canada and get all their weapons from Canadian sources.

Machine Guns

Daewoo K3

While Chris and Deni are in the police station, Stan Watkins and ex-deputy Ralston begin firing at them with Daewoo K3 light machine guns that have been modified with fake M249 Paratrooper-style stocks, a shortened barrel, railed handguards, and a foward grip.
