    Hey all,

    I was wondering if any of you might have any pictures or good screencaps or even info on the guns they used in the gas station shoot out in the 1996 Romeo and Juliet (the one with Claire Danes and Leonardo Dicaprio). I understand one was a modified Beretta 92 and the other was a modified 1911 style.

    Thanks,

    John

    OK, here we go.

    Every year or so, somebody asks about the guns. Last time around, I snagged these pics of what looks like the heros. These are not my pics, nor do I have any information about them... But they sure are purdy.

    Very cool.

    I only saw the flick once. Hated it. But the guns stood out.

    Can someone ID the site on Romeo's 'Sword'? It resembles a holographic site, kind of.

    Thanks guys, these have been great. If anybody else has any more they'd like to kick in that'd be awesome.

    Also, for the sight on Romeo's sword this sight looks like it's spot on

    I actually liked this movie a great deal, being a shakespeare enthusiast as well as a prop collector.

    As a nitpick, Romeo's gun never has a sight on it. Just a standard 1911.

    I'll wrest the movie out of my girlfriend's hands and take come caps later

    For what it's worth, those are Taurus clones of the Beretta 92 I believe - all have frame-mounted safety/decockers... I think the stainless body with gold accents and Juliets little pimped-up pocket pistol with all the gold might even be standard offerings from 'em.

    Ah -- here we go. Kinda tacky I think, but they sure fit the part. All they need is a little Crucifix hangin' off the mag, a fancy icon on the grips, and perhaps some nice custom engraving on the slide.. :)

    It's been a while since I've seen the movie, but might this be Juliet's?

    okay. here are a few samples of what I've grabbed. I've got over 100 pics, so I'm not going to post them all here. The pics I have are also higher resolution. PM me, and I"ll send out a zip file to anyone who wants it.

    First, the Montague mag plate:
    [​IMG]

    I'm going to see if I can get better caps of this later.

    Benvolio's pistol (Sword 9mm S-series):

    Tybalt's pistol (Rapier 9mm):

    Mercutio's pistol (Dagger 9mm):

    Lord Montague's Longsword (I have no idea what this is):

    I wasn't able to get any good shots of Romeo's pistol on the first pass. I'll go over the DVD tomorrow and find more (and hopefully better) shots of everything.

    I've only seen the film once, but I thought Juliet had the dagger?

    Juliet actually had a little black pistol that I haven't identified. I think Kaylee posted a link to the right one for her, but I can't get the page to load.
    [EDIT] I checked the Taurus site, and that doesn't look like the right one on the first inspection. pics of her gun will be up tonight for comparison

    Anyway, more pics tonight, and I'll be sending the zip with the higher resolution shots off by tomorrow morning

    Yes, it's when she's "persuading" the good Father to help, just before he goes off and makes the potion.

    Wierd that Taurus' site is up and down.. it just worked for me. Anyhow, the model numbers for those links are:


    Juliet: Taurus Model PT25

    "Da Boyz" pistols -
    Taurus PT92 9mm PISTOL WITH GOLD ACCENTS & ROSEWOOD GRIPS
    Taurus PT92 9mm PISTOL WITH GOLD ACCENTS & MOTHER OF PEARL GRIPS

    For the icon grips, if Taurus doesn't have a model with the base black-pearly grips, you could order the base ones here:
    http://www.ajaxgrips.com/ajax/ajax?set=06


    Now, I don't know if they were offering all those "pimpalicious" models back when the movie came out.. it's possible the movie folks had standard models nickled, plated, or whatnot.

    Notice the ejection port and the rounded trigger guard. Any ideas on what this could be?

    okay all the grabs have been converted to JPG. I'll go through and replace the smaller pics with the larger ones in a minute. Anyone wanting the zip, please PM me your email address, and I'll get it out pronto.

    Hi, I took those pics at Fox Studios in Sydney in 2002. They were a part of the props hall located on the Lot, which has since been removed I believe. I have larger versions of the pics if anyone wants them, just PM me.

    it certainly looks it. the picture of the broken-down pistol has a barrel exactly like one of the caps I have.

    interesting that Juliet's gun doesn't have the Capulet mag plate, though.

    Yay, one confirmed.

    I love Tybalt's and Mercutio's guns.

    any thoughts on airsofts or replicas that could be modded? Mercutio's would take alot with the cutaways on the handle and clip, but would look really cool.

    mutt

    edit: I've found the PT92 in airsoft form in clear, black and chrome. I haven't a clue where to begin to even attempt modding them though.

    Re: Baz Lurhnam's Romeo + Juliet(1996) Guns

    It's driving me crazy. I can't find Romeos gun.
    The para ordnance p13.
    ... I've only been able to find an airsoft BB gun replica one in the U.K.
    .... but they won't ship to me in USA. Driving me crazy. No USA site has it. And it's a rare gun kinda. It's similar to the 1911. But still very different.

    I want to make Romeos gun so bad but idk what I'm gonna do. Worried I might just have to go with a regular 1911 that doesn't look right.

    Also drives me crazy that this British site has what I want /need. But I can't get it cuz I'm in USA.

    ... I think benvilios and tybalts might be easiest.
    Basically easy to get a berretta or berretta type airsoft. I have one.

    Just gotta figure out how to add the stuff to it.

    Right now I'm wondering if I can order vinyl decal sticker printer paper from amazon and maybe use my community colleges software computer. Adobe indesign to print the replica catholic images for the grips and the name of the gun (ex. Sword/rapier)
    Also the family crest name plates for the bottom of the clips/magazines. Like the montague capulet.
    I hope it works.

    Re: Baz Lurhnam's Romeo + Juliet(1996) Guns

    Edgeofnowhere could you message me the sticker decals of the Romeo and Juliet gun things. Like the montage and capulet family crests and the "sword 9mm s series's/ rapier/dagger". And stuff.
    Please. You could email me. I just don't want to put my email in this public comment. But could get my email to you somehow
    Thanks.
    Peace

    Re: Baz Lurhnam's Romeo + Juliet(1996) Guns

    Romeo's gun is a para ordnance p13. .45.

    I'm still trying to make it.

    It's weird though has been almost impossible to find a airsoft type para ordnance p13

    So I got the closest I could find.

    Birdie lives in the U.K. And they have airsoft guns that are pretty much spot on p13

    But won't ship to USA

    Sorry I know this is talked about way too much

    I just love/want these gun replicas.

    And I quit drinking so I'm trying to spend more time on making replica props and such as a healthy thing to do while living the sober life
    Lol

    Peace
