S01E03 "Consolidation"

Guns - Gear - Featured Brands

This is the third post, covering the guns, gear, and brands that were featured in the Amazon Prime original, The Terminal List. If you are looking for information on gear that was seen in a different episode, that will be linked, as soon as I finish writing the subsequent breakdowns.

Episode 1 “The Engram”

Episode 2 “Encoding”

This post will focus exclusively on Season 1, Episode 3 –  “Consolidation.” I’ll give a little bit of back story for context, as well as some cool behind-the-scenes info, as provided by Gary Tuers of Xtreme_props. Gary was the prop-master, in charge of setting up all the weapons for the show. You can find lots of behind-the-scenes pictures of the guns and gear on his Instagram page. Other sources include The Terminal List‘s on-set photographer Justin Lubin, Jack Carr’s website and Instagram, the terminallistpv Instagram, Internet Movie Firearms Database, and Chris Pratt’s Instagram profile

If you somehow found this page before actually watching The Terminal List, STOP READING. The show is awesome, and it’s worth your time to enjoy it free from any spoilers that will be discussed in this post. (Don’t say I didn’t warn you.) Definitely come back, after you watch the show.

THE TERMINAL LIST Episode 3 Overview

In episode 3 of The Terminal List, James Reece (Chirs Pratt) has officially crossed the line from sanctioned battlefield warfare to cold-blooded murder. The first name on his list has been crossed out; and thanks to Josh Holder (Warren Kole), Reece now has his second target.

Saul Agnon (Sean Gunn) is the VP of Asset Management for a company called Capstone Industries (Capstone Capital in the book). Why on earth would some corporate fixer and errand boy have anything to do with Reece’s family being murdered in cold blood? What does a multibillion-dollar investment firm have to do with this conspiracy? 

Reece wants answers, and it’s time to bring the war to Saul Agnon’s front door. 

Gear, Guns, & Featured Brands in Order of Appearance

All of the brands, clothing, gear, and weapons, etc that you see on the show were included on purpose. Unlike most movies and tv shows like this, there were no paid product placement deals. Rather, it’s just awesome gear that was/is actively used by SEALs and other members of the military.

The images, titles, and anything highlighted in blue are links to that specific product. I’ve tried to link to pro-2A companies as much as possible. Some of the links are affiliated, which means I receive a small commission on any orders. There is no additional cost to you, and it’s a great way to support our work. If you enjoy this content, and you want to buy something from the show, please consider shopping through one of these links. Thanks!!

It’s no surprise that Black Rifle Coffee Co. makes several appearances throughout The Terminal List. Jack Carr is a big fan of their coffee (Silencer Smooth is his favorite), and so is James Reece (as long as there is honey and cream available). BRCC is a veteran-owned coffee roasting company that has grown into a household name. I don’t personally drink coffee; but if I did, I’m sure it would be BRCC.

In the opening scene of episode 3, Reece is wearing a BRCC Y/W Arrowhead logo shirt. You can grab one of these shirts for $27.99, along with several other BRCC branded gear that’s featured throughout the show.

Gun Safe, Go Bag, & Rifle Cases

After burning all the evidence linking to Josh Holder, Reece sends a Threema message to Katie that he needs to meet with her ASAP. Before heading out, he loads up his Land Cruiser with a dozen Pelican cases and bags full of guns, ammo, and gear.

I found an Instagram comment from Gary Tuers (prop master in charge of all the guns and gear for the show) that confirms the number, “He put 12 cases and bags into the back of his Land Cruiser. The ones we see the best are the Rifle case and briefcase.”

This scene features quite a few items that Reece uses throughout the rest of the series. The two most prominent are the BCM SX4 rifle and the Echols Legend rifle. I’ll be going into much more detail on both of those in the episode 4 breakdown. Since they have such a brief appearance in episode 3, I’ll just note them here, but know that the real details will be in the next post. 

THE TERMINAL LIST Fort Knox Maverick 6637 Gun Safe $5,500

This is the same safe that was already covered in the episode 2 breakdown, so I’ll just note that it appears here. If you want more details (and more interior pictures), you can check out my previous post. The safe features a Sargent & Greenleaf Titan electronic lock and has an upgraded door.

First up is a Benelli M4 Tactical 12ga shotgun. The finish is factory FDE Cerakote with Taran Tactical Innovations (TTI) safety, charging handle, and bolt release. You can pick up one of these babies from Gritr Sports, Sportsmans Warehouse, EuroOptic, and Palmetto State Armory. Prices range anywhere from $1,700 to $2,200, and they are surprisingly hard to find in stock (especially the 11791 model used in The Terminal List). 

As for the TTI upgrades, they are surprisingly affordable and seem to be stocked up pretty well, both at Brownell’s and Taran Tactical.

TTI Ultimate Charging Handle $44.99

TTI Oversized Ultimate Safety $29.99

TTI Oversized Bolt Release $25.99

THE TERMINAL LIST BCM Recce 14 SX4 Carbine $1,500

Caliber: 5.56 NATO Receiver Material: 7075-T6 Aluminum
Capacity: 30+1 Receiver Finish: Type III Hardcoat Anodized
Barrel Length: 14.5" Barrel Specs: 1/7 Twist Chrome Lined
Overall Length: 31.5” (35" extended) Gas System: Mid Length | Direct Impengement
Action: Full-Auto Weapon Light: Cloud Defense OWL
Optic: Aimpoint T-2 Micro Rail Cover: Burn Proof Gear Rail-Rap
Magnifier: Aimpoint 3X-C Muzzle Device: Rugged 3 Port Break

This is the rifle that James Reece (Chris Pratt) uses in Episode 4 through Episode 6 of The Terminal List. The rifle is a BCM Recce 14 SX4 with an Aimpoint T-2 Micro 2 MOA Red Dot Sight and Aimpoint 3X-C Magnifier. It also features a Cloud Defense OWL light, Rugged Suppressors three-port muzzle break, and Burn Proof Gear Rail-Rap. You can buy a BCM Recce 14 for about $1,500 without the optics and accessories. Honestly, that’s a really good price for what you’re getting. 

I’m actually quite happy with this rifle and optic choice for the show. BCM is a VERY well-known and respected rifle manufacturer in the United States. They started out with the goal of making true mil-spec parts that would be used by private contractors working overseas.

BCM® is the manufacturing arm and Bravo Company USA® is the retail and advertising-friendly arm. Different names, different websites, but same brand and used basically interchangeably. Bravo company was founded in 2003 by Paul Buffoni. The name “Bravo Company” comes from Buffoni’s first company, while serving in the Marine Corps, MCRD San Diego, 1st RTBn, Bravo Company.

Aimpoint is another very well-known brand and widely used optic company. (They literally invented the red dot sight in 1974). The Aimpoint T-2 Micro and 3X-C Magnifier combo is perfect for everything from short-range CQB (close-quarters battle, room clearing, etc) to long-range engagements.   

Because the rifle is only on screen when Reece is packing it for his bugout, I’ll be going into MUCH more detail for the Episode 4 breakdown. The rifle plays a huge role in that one, so I’ll save the details and loads of pictures for later.

The hard case that James Reece used to carry his BCM rifle and Benelli M4 shotgun is a Pelican 1745 AIR bow case. The foam was custom laser cut for the exact weapons used in the show. If your foam cutting projects tend to look like a honey badger got a hold of it, there are companies that do custom laser cutting and colors. Gunfoam.com and Carolina Custom Foam are good options.

Pelican cases are basically the industry gold standard when it comes to rifle cases, protective gear, and general rugged protection for all kinds of stuff. You can get super small cases all the way up to massive, custom-made, protective boxes. In this load-out scene, Reece actually loads twelve cases and bags full of gear into his Land Cruiser. 

In the book, most of the guns and gear Reece used were actually taken from the SEAL team 7 weapons locker. He basically packed up the entire armory, including a MK-48 machine gun, claymores, C4, and LAW anti-tank rockets. (No links for those, sorry.)

Ever wonder what kind of bag James Reece used to load his cash, gold, passports, and ammo? Here’s your answer: It’s a Kadre Tactical Backback in Multicam Black, made by a veteran-owned company called VIKTØS. I watched the scene several times, trying to figure this out. Sadly, the only screen time this backpack gets is all of about 3 seconds at 04:05 minutes into Episode 3. You can also see the top corner of it in the bed of the stolen truck, when Reece is transferring gear at 12:27.  This is actually a purpose-built go bag that can hold full-sized rifles, handguns, and all kinds of stuff! 

Here’s part of the description from the VIKTØS website

“The design premise for the Kadre bag was to create the ultimate go bag – one high-volume bag to carry a full cache worth of guns, gear, and ammo. The backpack needed to be tough as hell, provide modular mounting options, accept full-size rifles & pistols, support loads of ammo, and still, present a low-vis optic for carry in urban areas. Functionally it needed to be tactical AF without screaming military-style or reading like every overtly-tactical bag on the market. It also needed to be at home in the back of a pickup or being rucked to a primitive bugout site. The Kadre is our solution. It is capable of storing rifles up to 35″ in length with barrel extension shroud.”

THE TERMINAL LIST Winkler Sayoc RnD Front Spike Tribal Tomahawks $900

Winkler RND front spike crossed tomahawks from The Terminal List

If The Terminal List only had weapons as main actors, the Winkler RnD Front Spike tomahawks would be front and center. These hawks were a collaboration project between Master Bladesmith Daniel Winkler and Sayoc Kali martial arts trainer Rafael Kayanan

The Winkler RnD hawk is also a personal favorite of Jack Carr himself, and you’ll recognize their crossed silhouette as his logo. You can buy one if you’d like, but you’re going to wait about 6-8 months and pay over $900 EACH. Officially, it’s called “WK RnD Full Size Axe,” according to Winkler Knives. I’m calling them hawks because of their smaller size, as well as the fact that Jack Carr refers to them as hawks in the books. Axes are typically much larger. However, I’m not a Master Bladesmith, and Mr. Winkler can call his designs what he wants, of course. 

I don’t typically recommend or link to “replica” gear, but I came across an interesting option from Ancientsmithy. He’s a Ukrainian blacksmith, who hand-forges custom axes, hawks, and hammers. The price for one of his hand-forged Ogun tomahawks is currently $173 (at the time of writing). 

Like most of the gear seen so far, the hawks are only on screen for a flash during this episode. They will play a major role in the next one, so you’ll just have to stay tuned for the Episode 4 breakdown. For now, enjoy a couple awesome pictures of the Winkler RnD Axe:

If you read the book prior to watching the show, you would know this rifle is very special. If you’re like me and saw the show before reading the book or knowing anything about the show, you may have mistaken the rifle that James Reece uses as a garden variety Winchester Model 70. My first time through the show, that was my assumption, and I didn’t quite understand why Reece was treating it with such respect. After seeing all kinds of really awesome weapons like HK-416s, custom TTI Glocks, and a BCM carbine, I was honestly a little disappointed at first to see just a basic deer rifle take on such a big role and be treated with such reverence. Well…

I WAS WRONG.  

Not only is the rifle the furthest thing from a basic Winchester Model 70, it’s arguably the finest quality handmade big game hunting rifle you can buy. This ain’t your granddad’s deer slayer – it’s an Echols Legend LX-1

I reached out to Mr. D’Arcy Echols directly to learn more about his work and this special rifle. He was super kind and generous, providing a lot of information and images for this post series. All of the images of the rifle you see here and that will follow in my upcoming episode 4 post are of the actual screen-used rifle, provided by D’Arcy Echols, excluding the first image above, which I rendered in Photoshop to add the stock cuff and sling, prior to contacting Mr. Echols. 

The Nightforce NSX 2.5-10×32 scope used in this episode is actually no longer in production – Nightforce built one specifically for the show. The rifle was intentionally aged and weathered to make it look like it had been used for years by James’ father, before giving it to Reece.

D’Arcy Echols is known in the big game hunting world, which is partly why I wasn’t familiar with his work, prior to watching and reading The Terminal List. Each Legend rifle has roughly 160 man hours of extremely precise machine work, measurements, and fittings. Up until last year, Mr. Echols was using Winchester Model 70 actions and then spending those 160+ hours making them as close to perfect as humanly possible.

You’ll have to stay tuned for my episode 4 breakdown for the really good stuff, including the story of how Reece’s father got the rifle, as well as a ballistic breakdown of the bullet used and more images provided by Mr. Echols!

Gatorz Milspec Ballistic Aluminum-Framed Magnum Sunglasses $240

Gatorz are very popular in the SEAL teams, so it’s no surprise to see these glasses show up so many times throughout the series. The exact style of Gatorz worn by James Reece is the Magnum Ballistic black on black. You can grab a pair for $240 or $144, if you don’t want/need the ballistic option.

Fun Fact: Jack Carr has been wearing and maintaining the same pair of Gatorz since 1998. He wore the glasses on his very first deployment, and they are very special to him. He mentions this a few times during his EDC videos and pocket dumps. I can’t say with absolute certainty, but I imagine that the Gatorz Jack is wearing during his cameo are his original pair from 1998.

Big thanks to DJ Stokes for figuring out the jacket. We are about 99% sure this is the jacket that James Reece was wearing during the attack at the diner with Katie. There is a “lined” version and an “unlined” version. The unlined version linked here is the one you’re after. 

Resco BlackFrog Gen2 Black PVD Watch on a Nato Strap $1,905

The Resco BlackFrog Gen2 watch (worn by Reece) can be seen several times in this episode, most notably during the ambush at the lunch meeting with Katie Buranek (Constance Wu). You can clearly see the watch during the gunfight in the street with Adrian “Gordo” Gordonis (Jack Carr cameo).

The watch featured in the show is a quartz version, which was selected for durability while filming. The quartz movement is $1,905, and the automatic version with an ETA 2824 movement is $2,155.

If you’ve seen any recent movies with half way decent guns and tactics in them, odds are pretty good that Taran Butler from Taran Tactical Innovations was involved (i.e. John Wick 1-4, Gemini Man, Transformers, SEAL Team, and about a couple dozen more). 

Taran is a multiple-time national shooting champion and a “Grand Master” in FIVE different shooting disciplines. In addition to being really good at poking holes in paper, he’s done a great job positioning TTI in Hollywood as the go-to firearms training organization. 

The Glock® 19 that James Reece carries in The Terminal List is a Gen 3 9mm that was sent to Taran Tactical for several upgrades. Much like several of the weapons, Taran customized for the John Wick movies, he now offers the “TTI Terminal Gunsmith Package,” if you’d like to trick out your own Glock just like James Reece’s. The current price for the TTI Terminal List package is $999 (not including the gun).

The man, the myth, the legend himself – Jack Carr appears in Episode 3 as Adrian “Gordo” Gordonis. Up to this point in the series, we aren’t 100% sure that James Reece isn’t completely crazy and imagining everything. Katie just presented medical records that clearly show a massive brain tumor, and she thinks he’s lost his mind. We, the audience, start agreeing with her…that is until Gordo tries to kill him in broad daylight.

The gun that Gordo was using is a Glock 17 Combat Master modified by Taran Tactical. In the scene, Jack is wearing Salomon XA Pro 3D shoes, KÜHL Radikl pants, and his Ares Diver-1 Mission Timer watch

I’m going on an assumption that Gary Tuers, prop master for the show who was responsible for providing all of the weapons, likely provided a Combat Master from his older inventory… Buried several years back on his Instagram page, there is a post highlighting the Glock 17 Combat Master that Hobbs (Dwayne “The Rock” Jonshon) used in Fast & Furious 8. I have absolutely no evidence that this is the same Combat Master used in The Terminal List, but that’s my current working theory until new evidence presents.

Personally, I’m a huge fan of KÜHL and Salomon, as well. I pretty much live in these two brands for many reasons. The KÜHL Radikl pants, specifically, are super comfortable and capable. If you’re interested to find out more, check out my video review on the Radikl pants and  .  

Why Gordo Lost The Gun Fight Against James Reece

Here’s some real-world knowledge for you. Taking out the obvious plot line for the show and the fact that Reece was supposed to win, this same outcome would be very likely in reality. 

Shooting through glass, especially laminated vehicle windshields, is extremely inaccurate and unpredictable. Bullets are finicky little things, and when they slam into an angled and curved object, there’s no telling where exactly they will end up. If you rewatch the scene, you’ll see that #Gordoshotfirst, but the shot completely missed Reece. He even got a second shot off before Reece could return fire, but because Reece was moving, Gordo’s Glock would follow and he would have to shoot through a “clean” part of the windshield all over again. The second shot misses again, and the rest is history. 

The bullet holes in Gordos vehicle from The Terminal List

Shooting through the windshield from inside a vehicle will typically cause the bullet to impact much higher than your point of aim. Even if Gordo had rock-solid fundamentals and was holding a perfect sight picture right in the middle of Reece’s chest, the first few shots through the glass are almost guaranteed to miss. 

Since Reece is returning fire through the same windshield, his bullets will also be deflecting in unpredictable ways. As he makes his way around for a clear shot through the open side window, you can see Reece fires two additional shots into Gordo’s head to insure that he was actually dead.

Here’s an excellent video from Kyle Lamb, explaining why shooting through glass is so difficult. If you didn’t know, Kyle was an ████████ with the 1st Special Operations Detachment – Delta, more commonly known as ████ █████.

Play Video

You’ll notice in the above video that Kyle Lamb, a former ████████, “missed” his first shot through the windshield. That isn’t because he sucks at shooting. It’s because shooting through glass is like trying to nail jelly to the wall. I’ve personally shot through windshields at targets, literally leaning against the front bumper of the vehicle, and STILL missed high. 

There are SO MANY variables that can cause all kinds of weird ballistics. Here is a section of The Terminal List Podcast, where Jack is explaining that scene and why it happened the way it did – just another awesome example of the attention to detail that went into this show!

Pro Tip: If you have to shoot through glass, try to shoot through the same hole, and keep shooting until the problem is solved.

After the attack, Reece drives into a parking garage and finds a suitable older model vehicle to steal. As someone who has taught a few classes on vehicle entry and exploitation as a contractor, I am really glad to see the accuracy in this scene. Older cars are much easier to steal than newer models, and the steps to get one started without the key are all in the steering column, not under the dash, like so many movies tend to show.

While transferring Pelican cases, bags, and everything else Reece had packed into his Land Cruiser, he asks Katie if she knows how to use a Glock. He then gives her a standard-issue Glock 43X, which ends up saving her life later. 

The Glock 43X subcompact is one of the most popular handguns for concealed carry and is an excellent choice if you’re in the market for one.

Noveske N4 CQB Rifle $2,500

Noveske N4 CQB Rifle That Steve Horn Used in The Terminal List
Noveske Logo

The introduction to Steve Horn (Jai Courtney) involved a six-man team running a live fire shoot house drill. Each member of the team was using an identical Noveske N4 CQB rifle setup with Aimpoint CompM5S red dot sights. The rifles appear to be an older generation because I don’t think Noveske is offering the monolithic quad rail design anymore, as seen in The Terminal List. Voltor is also no longer offering quad rails. Most companies are opting for M-LOK or KeyMod rails to save weight and create a more comfortable grip surface.

I dug around for a while, trying to find out more about this rifle but haven’t come up with much. If you have any additional intel to add to this one, please let me know. My history on Noveske is pretty limited at the moment.

The Noveske N4 CQB rifle uses a 13.7″ barrel with a pinned and welded Noveske KX5 flash hider. The KX5 (AKA “Flaming Pig”) is essentially a single baffle suppressor, specifically designed for close-quarters use. The KX5 is NOT a sound suppressor and is registered with the ATF as a flash suppressor. The KX5 meets the ATF’s requirement for a 16″ overall barrel length when pinned and welded to a 13.7″ barrel. 

The single baffle design helps create more back pressure, which helps the shorter gas system cycle the bolt more reliably. It also significantly helps to reduce the fireballs that tend to occur with SBRs. A 13.7″ barrel is not long enough to burn all the gunpowder before the bullet leaves the barrel, so the unburned powder ignites as soon as it hits fresh air at the end of the muzzle. SBRs are also incredibly loud, so even a single baffle muzzle device will help make it more tolerable, especially indoors.

The sealed tubular design of the KX5 directs all of the muzzle blasts forward (rather than out to the sides like a traditional muzzle device), which helps prevent muzzle blasting your teammates and yourself, as you move through close quarters.

The watch, worn by Steve Horn during the shoot house scene, is a Panerai Submersible Marina Millitare Carbotech 47mm reference PAM 979. For only $19,900, you too can be tacticool like Steve. Big shoutout to Watches of Espionage for ID-ing that one. The secondary market for used PAM 979’s is right around $15k at the moment. I can’t say that I wouldn’t wear one if I was a billionaire, but most guys I know typically ran either Sunto’s or G-Shocks over anything. I personally wore a G-Shock 100-1A1, which is the same watch James Reece was wearing during his deployment on Operation Odin’s Sword. They are affordable, reliable, accurate, low signature, and not the end of the world if you snag it on something and lose it. 

As for the rest of Steve Horn’s wardrobe, he’s wearing a Forged “operator” ball cap (naturally), Peltor Tactical Sport Comms headset, and ESS Crossbow eye pro. I’m not sure what the shirt is since it’s basically a plain black long-sleeve shirt. His pants are Multicam Crye G3 Combat pants with Crye Airflex knee pads. It looks like his shoes are possibly Salomon XA Pro 3Ds, but I can’t say for sure. 

I’m still working on his belt setup. Between the motion blur in the scenes and the color grade straight out of Mordor, it’s proving to be difficult. All I know at this point is that his belt has a Cobra buckle, and it looks like he may be running a Safariland holster.

You're on the door, you should have taken the room! I'm not paying you to j**k me off, okay! I need verisimilitude, you understand?!

Steve Horn- Capstone Industries CEO

The definition of verisimilitude, according to the Cambridge dictionary is, “the quality of seeming true or having the appearance of being real.” The Oxford dictionary defines it as “the appearance of being true or real.”

Fantastic choice of vocabulary from the writers, instantly showing that Horn is nothing but a poser.

Meth - Not Even Once

There is evil in this world. it's our job to look it in the eye, 'cause most folks don't have the balls. That's the job. We do it. All you gotta do is pay your taxes and stay out of our way, but you, Saul... Steve Horn, Capstone Industries, oh, you wanted in on the frey. Now you're on the battlefield.

James Reece- The Terminal List

Thanks to some scouting and intelligence gathering by Ben Edwards (Taylor Kitsch), Reece is able to subdue Saul Agnon (Steve Gunn). This scene actually follows the book very closely, and Saul tells Reece everything he knows. Two more names are added to the list, and Reece injects him with a lethal overdose of methadone. Second name crossed off the list. 

Two names down, and two more added.

Conclusion & Final Thoughts

With two names crossed off his list, Reece now has a lead on Marcus Boykin, the lawyer responsible for hiring Mexican Sacarios to kill his family. He also knows that Steve Horn, the CEO of Capstone Industries, is the head of the snake.

This whole nightmare is coming to life because of something called, “Project RD4895.” Could that be the cause of his brain tumor? Why would someone kill off an entire SEAL platoon and an innocent family over this?  

Project RD4895...?

Answers or blood? James Reece will stop at nothing to get both.
