The first actor to "use" a Desert Eagle was actually Mickey Rourke, earlier that year. So I could not say it was first seen in Terminator, but could accurately say 1984. I wore a pair of clear Gargoyles in the 90's.

If I caused someone distress, my apologies. Cold and wind chill this Sunday, stayed home, had to do something. Might get better when I retire.

Correct. The year was 1984.

The Magnum Desert Eagle was also introduced, but in a different movie. Arnold sported a Hardballer. Whatever happened to them?

WOW your so wrong.

The Winchester model 1887 Lever action shotgun was first used in the movie:

The Professionals by Burt Lancaster as the character Bill Dolworth in 1966

And then in the movie

The Life and Times of Judge Roy Bean by both Paul Newman as Judge Roy Bean and Victoria Principal as Maria Elena it was the 1901 model in 1972

as cited on this page:

http://www.imfdb.org/wiki/Winchester_Model_1887

The AMT Hardballer Was first used:

The Terminator by Arnold Schwarzenegger as the Character The Terminator in 1984

The question was about the Hardballer and the Gargoyles, both launched in '84.
I wasn't paying attention to the shotgun. So Terminator was "issued" a Mod 1887, what do you know.
