Terminator 2: Judgement DayEdit
Following obtaining clothes, a motorcycle and a Colt Series 70/Detonics 1911 Hybrid from one of the bikers, the bar owner came out wielding this shotgun, threatening the T-800. The machine snatched it from his grasp with ease and took his sunglasses before departing. He uses this weapon throughout a good portion of the film. He is shown using this against the T-1000. He later leaves the gun at the property of Enrique Salceda, after obtaining better weapons.
T2 3-D: Battle Across TimeEdit
The T-800 returns and brings with him an 1887 like in the movie. He uses it prior on the T-1000 before taking John Connor to the future. When the T-1000 follows them through time however, he uses it a couple more times before blasting the machine in the head. When the bike both he and John are on is sent flying by an HK-Aerial, he and John run through the destroyed ruins where the Aerial sends out Mini Hunters to pursue them.
The T-800 manages to take 2 out with the shotgun before running out of ammo, however he does manage to take out a third by using the gun as a bat, hitting it out of the building. Discarding the gun, the machine found itself in possession of an Westinghouse M-25 Phased Plasma Pulse Rifle, after using a destroyed Mini Hunter to take out another T-800.
Behind the scenesEdit
Four "hero" (live fire) Model 1887s were customized for the film Terminator 2: Judgment Day, all of which were used in filming. Modifications done to the Model 1887s include a shortened stock and cut down barrel. Two different styles of levers were used in the film — the standard lever (used in the "Rosebox" shotguns) and a custom loop-style which allowed Arnold Schwarzenegger to "swing-cock" the shotgun (used in the "Swing-Cock" shotguns). During filming, the four shotguns were regularly disassembled for cleaning and then reassembled, often resulting in parts from different shotguns being mixed and matched.
Since the film's release, three of the four shotguns have been publicly sold — one is owned by Jason DeBord, the President of Original Prop Blog, LLC and two were sold in an auction hosted by Little John’s Auction Service in June 2007. The fourth has been rumoured to be in Schwarzenegger’s personal collection. Rumor has it Arnold once almost broke his finger while performing the swing-cock.
