Beverly Hills Cop III is the third installment in the Beverly Hills Cop franchise. The 1994 sequel, which was directed by John Landis, finds Axel Foley (Eddie Murphy) in Beverly Hills once again when a Detroit officer is killed by gunmen linked to a Southern California amusement park. Murphy would return as Foley in 2024's Beverly Hills Cop: Axel F.

The following weapons were used in the film Beverly Hills Cop III:



Browning Hi-Power

Detroit Police Detective Axel Foley (Eddie Murphy) once again carries a Browning Hi-Power as his standard sidearm. In contrast to the first two films, in which the weapons were provided by Stembridge Gun Rentals, the weapons in Beverly Hills Cop III were provided by Gibbons Ltd., and so a different gun was used than the preceding films. The Browning Hi-Power from this movie was eventually inherited by Independent Studio Services after they acquired most of Gibbons Ltd.'s Title I firearms, and finally sold in a 2018 Heritage Auctions listing.

Beretta 92F

The Beretta 92F is carried by Detroit Police Inspector Douglas Todd (Gilbert R. Hill) and Detective Levine (Jon Tenney).

Beretta 92FS Inox

The Beretta 92FS Inox is first seen in the hands of Detroit Police detective Giolito (Joey Travolta) during the shootout at the illegal chop shop. Holloway (Lindsey Lee Ginter) also carries a Beretta 92FS Inox as well, sometimes suppressed. Twice in the film, Holloway's Inox is used by Ellis De Wald (Timothy Carhart).

Star Firestar M-45

Ellis De Wald (Timothy Carhart) uses a nickel Star Firestar M-45 pistol in the "Land of Dinosaurs" ride shootout. Note, by looking at the screencaps, as the characteristics coincide: completely side ejection port, back finger grooves, wide sub-compact frame and huge .45 bore. The trigger guard is frontally grooved and curved at the bottom and the Firestar M-series had black factory barrel and guide rod (visible when the weapon is fired in the second screencap).

Heckler & Koch MP5A3

Some of the SWAT officers who raid the van are armed with Heckler & Koch MP5A3s with slimline hand guards. The MP5A3s used in this scene appear to be airsoft weapons, based on their plastic look (they are also not fired in the scene).

Annihilator 2000

The Annihilator 2000 is a fictional weapons platform that was being pitched by Axel Foley's old friend, Serge (Bronson Pinchot). The main weapon of this platform appears to be a Colt Model 723-type rifle, but is also a conglomeration of various hip 'devices' of the day.

The TV advertisement for the Annihilator states the following : "A new generation of luxury personal weaponry, the Annihilator 2000 is America's premier survival, home and travel security unit. The Annihilator 2000 is a high-performance weapon that meets the demands of upper income urban survivalist. The Annihilator 2000 has the conveniences of a cellphone, fax and microwave oven. Night-vision goggles, microprocessor, verbal alarm system, compact disc player, digital AM/FM radio, video camera and playback functions are just a few features of the extraordinary Annihilator 2000. Stopping power is a matter of convenience. The Annihilator 2000 is constructed of aluminum alloy combined with polymer technology, totally resistant to corrosion. A new generation luxury personal weaponry, the Annihilator 2000 is America's premier survival, home and travel security unit."

Gun Advertisements

At the Security Conference Axel and Billy attend, several gun advertisements are seen.

The billboard behind Billy advertises a Colt 9mm SMG.

On the film's posters, Axel is (for whatever reason) seen carrying a Hungarian FÉG P9R, instead of his typical Browning Hi-Power that he actually carries in the films.
