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 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.
A custom ornately engraved and plated Colt Combat Commander is carried by a criminal who draws it during a traffic stop.
Looking at the pistol's magazine (laying on the table near the golden AK in the police office scene), it's a 9mm caliber.
Officer Taylor takes a custom engraved M1911A1 from a Sinaloa cartel member after discovering a house full of illegal migrants. Later, Big Evil (Maurice Compte) threatens one of his own men with a M1911A1 after his orders are questioned.
Several LAPD officers are seen throughout the film armed with Remington 870 shotguns sporting black synthetic furniture. Sarge (Frank Grillo) also fires a Remington 870 when confronting a heavily-armed group of gangsters.
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.
ICE agents who arrive after Taylor and Zavala uncover a house full of illegal migrants appear to be armed with Colt Model 933 carbines. The weapons are fitted with EOTech red dot sights, RIS foregrips, and VLTOR Modstocks.
