End of Watch is a 2012 crime thriller starring Jake Gyllenhaal and Michael Peña as a pair of LAPD officers who find themselves the target of a merciless drug cartel. The film is in part seen through the video footage shot from the camera the officers carry wherever they go as well as by the cartel's own cameras. The film was directed by David Ayer (Street Kings), who insisted that Gyllenhaal and Pena go on numerous ridealongs with actual LAPD officers.

The following weapons were used in the film End of Watch:


Glock 22Edit

Glock 22s fitted with Surefire X300 weaponlights are carried by nearly all the LAPD officers in the film, including Brian Taylor (Jake Gyllenhaal), Miguel "Mike" Zavala (Michael Peña), Officer Davis (Cody Horn) and Officer Orozco (America Ferrara). Brian erroneously identifies his weapon as a Glock 19 in the locker scene near the beginning.

An interior shot of an LAPD patrol car showing a Remington 870 mounted on a bracket (between Officer Zavala and Officer Taylor). Something worth noting is that both officers appear to be correctly wearing body armor underneath their uniforms, which is a rarity in many police films. These were actual ballistic vests and not props, as insisted by the director. The man outside the car wearing the red jacket is Cle Shaheed "Bone" Sloan, an actor (and former gangster) who appears in many of David Ayer's films.



AKMS rifles are used by members of the Curbside gang. Officer Zavala can also be seen with what he calls "Liberace's AK", a gold plated AKMS with faux ivory furniture which he finds during a traffic stop. According to director David Ayer, the gold AKMS was a painted airsoft replica.
