The profile looks like it could be a Czech VZ58 as used on SPECTRE  ajb007/martini

Re: A question for gun experts.

The guns look very much alike. According to IMFDB the Compact version has only been used in one English-language movie before, and that is SPECTRE. Is it deliberate, or perhaps the EON armourer simply likes the gun?

Re: A question for gun experts.

That's quite interesting. Thank you, ppw3o6r!

Re: A question for gun experts.

Very interesting, considering where you see the gun in SP. Thanks for sharing!

Always have an escape plan. Mine is watching James Bond films.

If you recall tv series "Strike Back", it also featured CSA SA vz. 58 Compact in several episodes.

Sometimes, because of the restrictions imposed on transporting and / or possessing certain types of firearms, film and tv productions source weapons locally. This makes for some very interesting weapons spotting!

I think that was the case in OHMSS, but it certainly isn't the case this time.

Agreed N24, EON's Armorers don't seem to have a problem with getting what the Production need, Donk ( PPW 3O6R ) is obviously more in the know that me and has extensive knowledge on the subject  ajb007/cheers

This is the sort of detail that could be a clue to something important, but it's even more likely to be an unimportant coinsidence.

Re: A question for gun experts.

Not so much a gun but bomb question.

Watching an old episode of Spooks last night, with a laptop with
Some plastic explosives  in it.  Obviously  they tried  several things
To diffuse  it, but my question  is

Is it possible to instead of stopping it, you could scoop out most of the plastic explosives,  so only a small amount was left, then it could go off but cause little damage ?  Or have I just killed myself  ajb007/lol

Re: A question for gun experts.

Yes that is entirely possible. Unless there’s a hidden trigger within the mass of plastique.

Re: A question for gun experts.

I just read that the Walther WA2000, the sniper rifle 007 uses in TLD, is extremely rare. Only a total of 156 were made. The price is $12 500 and up for one of them today. The rifle was made for militarized police anti-terrorism units like GSG9 and the French GIGN. That's a very small market and the rifle was expensive to begin with, so this probably explans why so few were sold.

Plausible, but it would be easier and more effective to just pull out the visible wired blasting cap(s) required to detonate plastic explosive.

I'm not familiar with this show so I am guessing it is something to do with anti terrorism or spying?

If someone with training wanted to go to the trouble of constructing any explosive device like the one you said then they would probably take certain measures to ensure it could not be tampered with so any attempt would result in a anti tamper device being initiated. This could be any manner of switches to stop you opening the body of the laptop and even a light sensitive device. It could even have a tilt switch if the demolitions person did not expect (or want) it to be moved after it was placed and armed.

It would also not unusual to place two detonators. If the person who built the device did this then pulling one out (even if you could get to it) would do nothing. The builder of the device would not make it easy for any one but another expert to tackle. It would be better to leave the bomb and clear the area of people instead of trying to defuse.

I guess they did defuse the bomb with one second to spare? ajb007/wink

Re: A question for gun experts.

ajb007/lol  Something like that, yes  ajb007/cheers  Also in all movies and TV shows bombs all
have big digital clocks showing the countdown  ajb007/biggrin  I realise this is for the
benefit of the viewer, as I expect most Bombers wouldn't be as " Helpful " ?

Re: A question for gun experts.

TP,

Of course there are contingencies galore.   

Based on your simple technical question, I submitted a simple technical answer.  Trembler switches, remote detonations, "what if's", "there could be's", and "what one should actually do's" weren't in the equation.  For all of the keyboard EOD techs out there.  ajb007/rolleyes
