FUN FACTS: Terminator 2 - Winchester Shotgun



Terminator 2 is known for the action, the visuals, the script and you cant forget, the weapons. Arnold S the Terminator T-800 Model 101 (Arnold Schwarzenegger) uses a sawed-off Winchester 1887 shotgun.


And yes, Genuine Winchester shotguns were used in the film.


Three versions of the gun were used during filming.

The first was the iconic "Rosebox Shotgun" with a sawed off barrel and stock and the trigger guard cut out (This is the gun seen through most of the film).

The second version had a large lever loop so the gun could be flip cocked one-handed while riding a motorcycle.

The third gun was the rubber prop gun for stunt work.


With the two hero shotguns from the film-

The first version's lever is a lot more standard than the huge circular second version. The reason for this is Arnold had his iconic spin move with it and the first version was made so it would be easier and he wouldn’t get hurt during the move.
