The John Wick 4 Guns Collection
The worlds favorite assassin is back to take on the High Table in John Wick 4 and we can look forward to morte of the best gunfights the big screen has ever seen.
The Jonh Wick movies reinvented classic martial arts revenge flicks with director Chad Stahelski introducing the phrase Gun-Fu action hero. A combination of special forces level gun handling, Jiu Jitsu and a massive plot shield for the eponymous main character have made for spectacular viewing. And spawned one of the most popular and innovative movie franchises in recent times.
Now Keanu Reeves is back and the trailer for John Wick 4 looks amazing.
The guns of John Wick have become almost a fashion label, designer merchandise you can own at home, and that is wild. It’s a surreal product placement deal with custom pistol manufacturers, rifles and shotguns.
I mean some of these guns literally have John Wick’s name on them and will go on sale as the film releases.
Think about that for a second. It’s an endorsement from the world’s leading fictional super assassin who would be in jail forever if any of this was real, on products you can’t legally advertise on television.
The irony is thick and it is a genius marketing move from Taran Butler, head of Taran Tactical Innovations, who was brought on board early on to provide firearms advice and train the stars.
So now the guns are almost as famous as the man himself. But what are the best guns of John Wick 4? And where can you buy them…
1. TTI JW4 Pit Viper
- Price: $6,999.00
- Caliber: 9mm Luger
- Barrel: 5 inch
- Capacity: 22+1
The TTI JW4 Pit Viper is a bespoke 2011 with a mindblowing price tag, that takes over from the Taran Tactical Innovations STI 2011 Combat Master that found fame in the Continental shootout John Wick Chapter 3: Parabellum.
The Sand Viper is on sale now, while the Pit Viper officially goes on sale in May 2023.
At its core this is a competition shooting specialist and it took the 2021 USPSA 2-Gun National title under an assumed name during the testing phase.
It might be the ultimate 2011, and probably should be at this price. Features include a DLC coated match grade barrel, single port compensator, a massive enlarged and flared ejection port that borders on an open slide and an Aftec extractor.
Aggressive wraparound stippling, a stainless steel guide rod join forces with a seamlessly blended grip safety and a built in bladed standoff.
Control Unit is Intense
An Extreme Engineering Fire Control Unit includes a Lite Speed Hammer, ultra low mass sear, titanium hammer strut and match disconnector.
There is an accessory rail underneath for weapons lights and TTi says this isn’t just a competition shooting pistol, it’s a battle pistol worthy of the Gun-Fu action hero himself.
This video is the closely related TTI Sand Viper that may also make an appearance in the movie. I mean why not right? Also, that’s the only one on the open market and for sale right now.
2. Genesis Arms Gen 12 SBM
- Price: $2,8599.99
- Caliber: 12 Gauge
- Barrel Length: 10.5 inch
- Capacity: 20+1
The Genesis Arms Gen 12 SBM is a suppressed, short barrel semi-auto shotgun that the manufacturer claims is the fastest cycling shotgun out there. But this one might be faster.
That’s because this is a Taran Tactical Innovations modified AR-style shotgun with performance parts. In Wick’s hands, this is a sweet 12 gauge.
Now we don’t want to say we told you so, but we did call out the Benelli shotguns in the third chapter, along with some other weapons choices. We felt a mag-fed shotgun made a damn sight more sense than quad loading a Benelli M2 3 Gun, which was cool and yet contrived.
A 9mm rifle against body armor too, seemed like the dumbest choice in the armory. And Wick doesn’t do dumb choices. Except for maybe blowing Santino D’Antonio’s brains out on company grounds. That was a questionable judgment call…
The semi-automatic Genesis is exactly the kind of shotgun we think the Gun-Fu Action hero would carry. It’s high tech, reloads in a second and is absolutely devastating. Big, bold, robust, that kind of stuff.
The Genesis is expensive, but you can get a very similar effect with a Kalashniov Komrad and you’ll find that on our list of semi-automatic tactical shotguns.
3. Thompson Center Arms Encore
- Price: $450.00
- Caliber: TBC
- Barrel: 15 inch
The dueling pistols that look to have a pivotal role might be highly customized Thompson Center Arms, or not. This is probably the closest we can find anyway and you only get a glimpse of the guns in the new trailer.
Definitely they have a shorter barrel, but that’s an easy mod for the likes of Taran Tactical.
These single shot pistols are hunting favorites and you can switch out the barrel in seconds, or fit a stock and turn it into a singl shot rifle.
It really is the Swiss Army Knife of muzzle loaders pistols and rifles. Switch to any caliber, take any size game and do it all for les than $500.
4. Glock 17
- Price: $620.00
- Barrel Length: 4.49 inch
- Total Length: 7.95 inch
- Capacity: 17+1
There are sexier Glocks in the John Wick movies, much sexier, but the Glock 17 that makes multiple appearances is one of the more affordable options and it is mighty effective.
In the second movie, Wick rocked a pair of Taran Tactical tuned Glocks that cost thousands of dollars more. The Glock 34 and the Glock 19 Combat Master have featured in the last two movies, so look out for a heavily tuned Glock or 3 in the next new trailer.
But this stock Glock is a great service pistol, home defense option and also one of the best Glocks for sale in 2023.
What We Know About John Wick Chapter 4
At the end of the third instalment of the John Wick franchise, John Wick, Keanue Reeves, is missing a finger and had just survived a swan dive off the top of the New York Continental Hotel.
Winston, played brilliantly by Ian McShane, helped him with several bullets, in the full knowledge that John had the bulletproof suit and should survive this rather traumatic experience.
Laurence Fishburne as the Bowery King is also recovering from an unpleasant interaction with a sword for his part in helping John Wick. So whatr does Chad Stahelski have in store for us next?
John Goes to War
We know that John is going to war with the High Table. We also know that Lance Reddick is back as concierge Charon and the new nemesis is the Marquis de Gramont, played by Swedish actor Bill Skarsgard.
John must take him on in single combat and win. Before he gets to the pistols at dawn, though, Wick must cut through a wave of assassins that includes Donnie Yen as Caine.
Iconic actor Clancy Brown also makes an appearance alongside Bill Skarsgard. Hiroyuki Sanada returns and this time he’s on John’s side.
Singer and actress Rina Sawayama, Shamier Anderson and British martial arts star Scott Adkins and adjudicator Asia Scott Dillon also light up the screen. Halle Berry returns, too.
We know there are car chases in front of the Arc de Triomphe, John shoots a man off a camel in the desert and there are fight scenes ranging from katana duels to gun and sword fight scenes you’d expect from the John Wick movie franchise.
So basically we know the cast, a few basic plot points and that the ‘John Wick 4’ trailer is action packed. We will, of course, update this post with the latest news and info from ‘John Wick 4’.
