I have two questions:

1) In the movie HEAT, what is the gun Vincent (Al Picino) used in the shootout with the cops and bank robbers.

2) In the November issue of Combat Tactics, what is the gun featured on pages 158 and 159

TIA

Pacino used a SIG in that movie. I think it was the 551? or maybe 550. Great movie! Its been a while sense I've seen it... I should go buy it I guess.

I thought Picino used a FN FNC in that movie.

I thought it was an FN FNC as well. Were the Sig rifles even available in the US at the time the movie was made? - I could be wrong - I'll watch it again sometime and pay more attention. Also, they switched weapons around a number of times in the movie.

Ah, the time honored Al Pacinos gun in "Heat" question.

The rifle that Pacino used is non other than a Fabrique Nationale FNC.  Not a SIG.

The FNC:

perhaps if you posted a picture of the rifle it would yield more answers.

You may just have to wait until I get back to see the picture.
