Just saw the movie XXX. Seems like half the guns have OKO's on them. Makes sense I believe b/c I seem to recall that OKO's are made in the Czech Rep. & most of the movie takes place in Prague. Anyway, the movie is incredibly cheesy, but for an eat-popcorn-and-watch-shit-blow-up-movie it's not that bad.

I love how the red dot sights actually put red dots on the targets. In the one scene where they were about 5 feet apart the dots had to be at least an inch in diameter. Even if the guns did have a laser, which I didn't see just the red dot sights. A 1 inch dot a 5' would be 60 inches at 100 yards!

Actually if you look, they were all wearing crimson trace grips you could see the lasers on when looking at the gun. My guess was the real dots weren't impressive enough so they made them bigger.

I noticed this and pointed it out to my wife, during the movie! I personally feel they did an outstanding job with the weapons handling and PROMOTION, during this film. I especially loved seeing the MP5 w/ a Beta-C mag, as you don't see that very often.

I thought the gun handling and ammo managment were better than any other move I have seen. He only got 6 shots out of the revolver he was carrying. A good guy finally picks up and uses a bad guys weapon. They show him learning about safety's (since playstation games and revolvers don't have any,) And they make him learn to hit with a full auto with recoil. I only had a couple of problems with the whole movie, and only one gun related one. I would never have loaded multiple types of ammo in the revolver. And I really think they could have lost the avalanche scene.

There were NO OKO's in the movie xXx. They were all C-More's. Topcrest and I just saw this movie last night and we both noticed this. OKO's would have been more appropriate.

You are correct on the C-More's... I love that Steyr subgun that she has her finger on the trigger of though!

I'm surprised the set wasn't raided with that kind of arsenal so wrecklessly stored.
