Famous Guns

Over the short history of cinema, heroes and villains have taken arms against each other. And while many good guys and bad guys just used standard weapons and guns, there's plenty of unique pieces out there delivering out both evil and justice on the big screen. Artist Frederic Mauro has taken the time to showcase Famous Guns, giving the spotlight to individual weapons from pop culture. They include the simple weaponry of duos like Bonnie & Clyde, and also the sci-fi arms of Blade Runner, Alien, Batman and more. In a cool twist, not all the featured items are "guns" in every sense of the word. Look!

Here's some of the pieces from Frederic Mauro's Famous Guns (see the rest right here):

The above pieces are just our personal favorites, especially the ones that aren't your traditional bullet guns or space pistols. For example, the inclusion of the guitar case from El Mariachi, the proton pack from Ghostbusters, and the oxygen tank from No Country for Old Men were particularly nice touches. At the same time, at Mauro's site, you can see the simple guns of John McClane from Die Hard, the revolver from Dirty Harry, James Bond's trusty PP7, and Tony Montana's assault rifle from Scarface. We'd love to see a series like this with other iconic weapons like swords maybe. Check out Mauro's other work here.

    Movie, Character, or Actor. Pick one and stick to it. That being said, the guns are pretty cool.

    Ok so he uses an RPG for rambos gun and a revolver for a Looper gun, I question whether the guy saw those movies at all. M60 and a blunderbuss anyone!?!?
