The upcoming Nation Firearm Museum Hollywood Guns exhibit would not be complete without guns from the 1988 classic Die Hard. The barrels are threaded so that a blank firing adapter can be inserted. The blank adapter increases the pressure inside the barrel allowing the weak blanks to open the slide.
You can learn more about the below guns at NRABlog and the latest episode of The Curator’s Corner (Click on “program Archive” button, then click the Apr 01 tab, then scroll down to “Curator’s Corner”). Many thanks to Lars for emailing them me the photos.
