In productions with weapons the Armorer, a.k.a. Weapon Master, usually has a significant role -- certainly on par with other credited parties (like personal assistants, caterers, wranglers, animal handlers, etc.). But I haven't ever found the armorer in the credits. Why is this?

    They should be. It's possible they're listed by a company rather than individual names or that they're listed under a different title than you're expecting. – Catija Apr 29 '15 at 15:32
  • I'd buy the "company" aspect, or that they may be titled under "prop-master" or some such. – Pᴀᴜʟsᴛᴇʀ2 Apr 29 '15 at 15:40
  • I doubt the call them 'armorers'. Look under 'prop master'. – DA. Apr 29 '15 at 16:37

An Armorer isn't listed in the credits because it's not a role/job title in the movie industry.

Weapons are props and, as such, are under the guidance of the prop master:

This job description varies somewhat from country to country. In the United States, food styling, weapons and animals are often directly or indirectly within the property master's domain.
