View Full Version : The Foreigner (pic) the movie
The Steven Seagal movie, The Foreigner had a character in it, Dunoir, played by Max Ryan. In the movie, Dunoir has what appears to be a suppressed NHM 91. Does anyone have any information on this weapon or how accurate it might be with the scope on it? Just saw the movie and I think the rifle was really cool, wondering how realistic of a weapon this might be.

The gun in the picture you included is an SVD. It's not suppressed. It's good to about 500-600 yds.

I had always heard that the rifle in that movie was an RPK, or clone of an RPK.
That barrel looks a little short to be a Drag...

That is NOT a SVD gas block......C'mon...
You can see the original pic here (http://www.maxryan.co.uk/FOREIGNER/601.jpg), unfortunately, I’m not able to do a screen capture from the DVD at this point in time, but the rifle in the movie looked nothing like an SVD and had a 7.62x39 magazine in it. Also, as you can see in the pic, there is a suppressor on the snoot of the weapon be it a “Hollywood” suppressor or not.

Looks like a plain jane AK47 with a Hollywood muzzle thingy and a PSO-1.
Too bad the rope is blocking his shot.

Well, having flipped around on the DVD that JTR brought over, the rifle in the picture above is most definately NOT an SVD.
It's got an import style thumbhole stock on the thing, and the barrel looks to be about 20", not 24".
For movie purposes, that particular rifle *IS* suppressed.
I'm going to go ahead and agree with JTR - based on what I'm seeing in multiple different shots, the rifle's an NHM-91 with some crap stuck on it, and a PSO-style scope on a side-rail.
On another note, some of the hired goons in the movie that Seagal just sniped with that same rifle above were carrying some AK shorty rifles.
From a quick glance, they look similar to a Krink, but, they've got a normal AK-74 style forearm on them, not a Krink forearm.
They've also got a goofy wire-folder stock on them that folds to the safety/selector side of the rifle, not the other side (as I've commonly seen).
Thought it might be one of the 100-series shorties, but looking at Izhmash's page, they ain't 100's.
It's a 5.45 rifle, but...
Can you fit a normal-length '74 forearm to a Krink, or is this some chopped up Hollywood crap?

The weapons rental companies can make up about any configuration you want out of a rifle. I wouldn't figure that rifles I see in a movie would neccesarily be something that can be bought from a factory that way.
That NHM-90 or 91 can be identified also by its smooth receiver cover, which makes it defenitely Chinese. The muzzle device is probably a fancy blank firing attachment made to look like a suppressor.
Now as to the original question, how would a real one shoot? It would have to have subsonic ammo so distance would be limited. But the NHM-91 is generally a fairly accurate rifle, compared to other AK's. I had one that was a 2MOA shooter which is fine for terminal hits up to 150 yards or so.

Also notice that the scope is mounted very high up on that thing...you'd need a cheek pad of some sort.
It reminds me of the move "The Three Kings" with George Clooney about the first Gulf War. There was a Mosin Nagant sniper that was made out of an M-44 carbine, complete with side-folding bayonet! Why they didn't just mount a PU scope on a real M91/30 is beyond me.

"That NHM-90 or 91 can be identified also by its smooth receiver cover, which makes it defenitely Chinese."
If it were Chinese it would have a full hood on the front sight. Yugoslav AK's also have smooth covers.
The type of weapon is irrelevant.
The fact the shooter has it tied to a tree with a piece of rope IS !

I don't think that is Chinese. The FSB post is typically an entire circle and the lower handbuard has Comblock bulges. The 45 degree gas block may indicate a Romanian but the smooth top cover is typical of Russian. Usually found on Saiga or RPK's. Hmmm.
