GoldenEye is the 17th entry in the official James Bond film series and marked the debut of Pierce Brosnan as Agent 007. The 1995 film follows Bond as he investigates the theft of the key to a secret Russian EMP weapon. His investigation leads to an organization of arms dealers and the reappearance of someone from Bond's past. The film's cast included Famke Janssen, Sean Bean, and Judi Dench in her debut as M. GoldenEye was directed by Martin Campbell, who also would helm Daniel Craig's debut Bond film Casino Royale (2006). The film also would inspire a popular FPS videogame for the N64 as well as its 2010 remake.

The following weapons were used in the film GoldenEye (1995):



Walther PPK

James Bond (Pierce Brosnan) uses a Walther PPK as his sidearm (in the opening scene at the chemical weapons factory, it is fitted with a suppressor). In one scene of the film, Bond points this gun at Valentin Zukovsky (Robbie Coltrane), who identifies it by the sound of the hammer being cocked as a "Walther PPK, Seven-Point-Six-Five-Millimeter", thus leaving the viewers with no doubt about the weapon's caliber. Later in the film, General Ourumov uses it to shoot at Russian Defense Minister Dimitri Mishkin (Tchéky Karyo) and a nearby guard, before handing it back to Bond after unloading the magazine (but not the chamber!) and calling the guards to kill him. In November 2020, the Walther PPK from this movie was auctioned off by PropStore.

Note that the dummy suppressor attaches via a threaded connector that screws into the pistol's muzzle, via the threading for the blank adapter within the barrel. This image, along with others on the page, comes from the PropStore auction listing.

Browning BDA

In the opening scene at the chemical weapons factory, Alec Trevelyan (Sean Bean) uses a Browning BDA fitted with a suppressor as his sidearm. It's the early production model based on the shape of the decocker. Due to a continuity error, the pistol switches to a Browning BDM for the rest of the chemical weapons factory scene.

Browning BDM

Trevelyan (Sean Bean) is seen brandishing a Browning BDM, a modernized, double-action variant of the Browning Hi-Power, throughout the film. Due to a continuity error, the BDM sometimes replaces his Browning BDA at the beginning of the film set in 1986 (which would be anachronistic, since the BDM was not around at that time). Also used during the finale of the movie, which takes place at Trevelyan's secret Goldeneye satellite control dish in Cuba. During the fight between Trevelyan and Bond on the transmitter above the dish, Bond gets a hold of the BDM, and turns it against Trevelyan, who later reclaims the weapon from Bond, but eventually runs out of ammo.

Makarov PM

General Ourumov (Gottfried John) uses a Makarov PM as his standard sidearm. It is used most notably in the opening sequence at the chemical weapons factory, when he uses it to threaten Trevelyan. Ourumov then uses it to shoot an unlucky soldier for shooting at Bond against his orders (as Bond was hiding behind a cart full of volatile chemicals, so Ourumov told all the soldiers to hold their fire). He is then seen using it to hold Natalya Simonova (Izabella Scorupco) at gunpoint with it when he captures her. At the satellite dish in Cuba, Bond gives one to her and she uses it to hold a helicopter pilot at gunpoint with it.

CZ 52

When he meets Zukovsky at his night club in St. Petersburg, Bond makes a disparaging comment about the singing talents of Zukovsky's mistress, causing Zukovsky to pull a Czech CZ 52 pistol from beneath his jacket and fire a round into the couch between Bond's legs. He continues to fire two more rounds as a way of threatening Bond.

Astra 2000 Cub

When aboard the frigate, Xenia Onatopp uses a nickel-finish Astra Cub with a suppressor to gun down the two Tiger Pilots (although the minimal suppressor, more of a moderator, does little to reduce the report, only to dampen the initial report slightly, making you wonder why none of the plentiful military personnel on board the frigate notice the gunshots). This gun had been a difficult to identify due to film image quality, motion blur obscuring the details of the gun and generally awkward angle making it hard to identify. It was previously speculated to be either Llama XV and/or Beretta 418. The pistol is shown much better on production photos with actresses Famke Janssen and Izabella Scorupco posing with the gun.

Glock 17

In a deleted scene, the Pakistani arms dealer tries to sell a Glock 17 pistol to Valentin Zukovsky. However, Zukovsky points out to the arms dealer that the pistol was a Chinese counterfeit of the original Glock 17. Eventually, Zukovsky threatens him with it, revealing a flaw in the counterfeit weapon.

Lucky for him, those silly Chinese made the firing pin too short. All the dealer gets is a click.



Bond very frequently uses the AKS-74U, the compact version of the AK-74, by taking them from slain or incapacitated Russian soldiers. He first acquires this weapon during the opening scene at the chemical weapons factory, and then again during the escape from the Soviet archives (he takes this AKS-74U in the T-55 tank with him, and then uses it again when he confronts Trevelyan on his train). Xenia Onatopp (Famke Janssen) also uses an AKS-74U (with two magazines "jungle-taped" together). She first uses this weapon to kill all of the technicians at the Severnaya Goldeneye control center, and then is seen carrying it again on Trevelyan's missile train (however, she drops it when the train crashes, and when Trevelyan tries to grab it, he is stopped by Bond, who points his own AKS-74U at him).

In November 2020, the AKS-74U used by Pierce Brosnan in this movie was auctioned off by PropStore. The same gun was later re-used in both Die Another Day and Lara Croft: Tomb Raider (ironically, it was carried in the latter film by future James Bond actor Daniel Craig).

Norinco Type 56 and Type 56-1 (mocked up as AK-74 and AKS-74)

The weapons used by the Russian soldiers throughout the movie (and by Bond and Trevelyan during the shootout on the satellite dish) are often referred to as AK-74 or AKS-74 rifles. This is correct in some instances, but wrong in most cases. The vast majority of the so-called "AK-74s" used by Russian soldiers in this movie are actually Norinco Type 56 and Type 56-1 rifles, Chinese copies of the AKM and AKMS. The prop weapons used in the movie have been fitted with AK-74-style muzzle brakes and orange bakelite magazines to make them resemble AKS-74s, but the giveaway is the fact that the weapons clearly have under-folding stocks (on the AKS-74, the stock folds to the side), and more curved magazines for 7.62x39mm ammo (the AK-74 magazines are less curved). The weapons are clearly identifiable as Norinco Type 56 and Type 56-1s because they have the distinctive hooded front sights which characterize only Chinese-made Kalashnikov variants.

On a few occasions in the movie, it is possible to spot genuine AK-74 and AKS-74 rifles in the hands of some of the Russian soldiers (see below), usually in non-firing scenes. These are not nearly as common, however, as the mocked-up Chinese Type 56s which are intended to pass for AK-74s.

A Norinco Type 56 rifle (7.62x39mm) mocked up to look like an AK-74 in the film GoldenEye. This example has the orange "bakelite" magazine rather than the standard metal one and an AK-74 "Style" buttstock. In GoldenEye, there are also underfolder Chinese Type 56-1 rifles similarly mocked up as all as a few real AKS-74 (5.45x39mm) rifles in the scene at the chemical weapons factory.

As mentioned previously, there are some genuine AK-74 and AKS-74 rifles in the film. At least one AKS-74 can be seen clearly in the hands of a Russian soldier in the chemical weapons plant, and another is fired at Bond's T-55 during the chase through St. Petersburg.

AKS-74 - 5.45x39mm
A genuine AKS-74 in the hands of a Russian soldier at the chemical weapons factory. Unlike the rifles above, this weapon appears to be an authentic AKS-74 because it has a side-folding stock, and the magazine has less of a curve, indicating that it is a 5.45x39mm model. It also does not have the hooded front sight of the Chinese AKM variants seen above. The soldier to the right can be seen with a fixed-stock AK-74 as well. The soldier on the far left appears to be aiming at his comrade!

Full-stock AK-74 rifles are visible in some scenes, though most of those used appear to be rubber stunt versions.

When Bond and Natalya are in a field near the destroyed Janus base, CIA officer Jack Wade (Joe Don Baker) approaches them and calls out a squad of previously hidden US Marines, who are armed with M16A2 rifles.

Another soldier is armed with what appears to be an SVD Dragunov, but it is too hard to tell for sure (it may also be a Chinese Type 79 or some other copy).

Machine Guns


Outside the chemical facility, before General Ourumov emerges through the crowd of soldiers, one Russian on the far right is holding an RPK light machine gun, distinguishable by the bipod on the bottom. Like the Chinese Type 56 rifles seen in the film, it is fitted with an orange bakelite magazine. The weapon may be a Chinese clone of the RPK, such as the NMD-83, but it is hard to tell.

RPD Light Machine Gun

An RPD light machine gun is also used by at least one of the Soviet soldiers in the opening scene. The RPD is somewhat anachronistic for the time period shown, as the PK machine gun had largely replaced it by this time.

PKM Machine Gun

Another weapon visible in the opening sequence in the hands of a soldier is a PKM light machine gun (or some other copy).

M134 Minigun

When Bond is meeting with Q (Desmond Llewelyn) in his lab, a GE M134 Minigun can be briefly seen mounted on what appears to be a Polaris Big Boss 250 all-terrain vehicle.

Submachine Guns

Heckler & Koch MP5A5

In a deleted scene, Valentin Zukovsky (Robbie Coltrane) is seen handling a Heckler & Koch MP5A5 submachine gun during a deal with a Pakistani arms dealer. However, Zukovsky pointed out to the arms dealer that the MP5 he selling to him was a Czech counterfeit gun.

Other Weapons

Norinco Type 69

When the Soviets pursue Bond on the runway, a couple of them can be seen wielding Chinese Type 69 launchers.

Prop Grappling Gun (WGP Ranger Paintball Gun)

At the film's beginning, Bond is seen using a small pistol-type weapon to fire a grappling hook. This prop has been built off a WGP Ranger Paintball gun.

Chieftains and T-55s mocked up as T-80s

The Russian T-80 tanks in the film were British Chieftains and older model T-55s mocked up to resemble the newer tanks. Bond's T-55 had a hole cut in the right side of the upper hull (with a fake fibreglass hatch) for Pierce Brosnan to stand up in when he is "driving" it, since a T-55's driver's position is on the left. The tracks on this tank were modified Chieftan tracks with rubber pads - these were made narrower to fit. This was done as T-55s only had all metal tracks and these were not allowed to be used in the city streets.

The Gunbarrel

The opening gunbarrel sequence was completely overhauled for GoldenEye, with CGI employed to create the image (instead of a still photograph taken through the barrel of a real gun). As a result, the sequence now includes animated shadows inside the barrel as it pans across the screen.
