Cat Run is a 2011 action comedy directed by John Stockwell that stars Paz Vega as Cat, an exclusive call girl who unwillingly is witness to a crime committed by a US senator. In order to save her life, she takes evidence from the scene, which gets her chased by classy contract killer Helen (Janet McTeer). Cat then accepts the assistance of the unlikely private investigator team of Julian and Anthony (Alphonso McAuley and Scott Mechlowicz) and together they try to stay alive from Helen and other killers send after them by shady intelligence officer Carver (Karel Roden). Julian and Anthony would return for the 2014 DTV sequel Cat Run 2.

The following weapons were used in the film Cat Run:


Walther P99

Helen carries a Walther P99 in her handbag and uses it on several occasions. Cat takes the gun off her in one scene and Anthony is also seen using a Walther P99 during the final shootout at the cocktail party.

Anthony takes a Walther P99 off a security guard and uses it during the shootout at the cocktail party.

Glock 19

During the final shootout, security guards can be seen with a compact Glock pistol. The calibre cannot be identified, but as this movie was shot in Europe, it’s most probably a Glock 19 in the popular 9mm.

Glock 19 (3rd Generation) - 9x19mm


Helen takes a FEG P9R off a security guard during the shootout at the cocktail party. It can be identified by the Hi-Power style slide and the typical edged trigger guard.

CZ 83

In one scene, a very young hitman shoots a police officer in a car with a CZ 83, the gun is recognizable by the somewhat round barrel and the compact size.

Beretta 92FS

If it’s not enough, next to above Walther P99 and another gun described below, Helen also keeps a black Beretta 92FS in her handbag. It cannot be 100% identified, but because shells are seen ejected, this gun is assumed to be a blank-firing Beretta 92FS.

Bruni 92

Scottish contract killer Sean Moody (Tony Curran) carries what is most probably a Bruni 92 when he confronts Cat in her hotel room. Julian is later seen taking the gun from him.

Note the lack of inscriptions on the right side of the slide, giving the gun away as most probably a Bruni 92.
The grips also seem to point to a Bruni 92.

SIG-Sauer P225

Carver, a shady intelligence officer trying to cover up the senator’s crime, carries a SIG-Sauer P225 as his side arm and uses it in several scenes throughout the movie.

In addition to the above mentioned Walther P99 and Beretta 92FS, Helen also keeps an EKOL Tuna in her handbag. True to her profession, the gun is equipped with a silencer.

Submachine Guns

Heckler & Koch MP5A3

Several border guards as well as security staff carry Heckler & Koch MP5A3’s with original "slimline" forearm.

An inside joke; these security guards carry badges saying ‘LLeju’, which is actually the name of the production and distribution company for this movie.

Assault Rifle

SIG SG 550

Helen uses a scoped and silenced SIG SG 550 to take out somebody across the street from her hotel room. She takes several test shots at flower pots in a window still next to the future victim’s room.

As a true professional, Helen wastes no ammunition. The magazine seems empty but it is loaded with just two rounds for test shots.
During the test shots with her SIG SG 550, Helen has all the essentials at hand; ammunition, cigarettes and a cup of tea.

Over and Under Shotgun

While aboard the yacht of her employer Carver, Helen spends some time clay pigeon shooting with him. They use over and under shotguns of which the manufacturer/model cannot be identified.

Baikal Over and Under Shotgun - 12 gauge


When Helen is preparing for an assassination with her silenced SIG SG 550 (see above), we get a good close-up of the ammunition box. Even though the box appropriately mentions ‘subsonic’, it’s probably some kind of joke because (a) the calibre is incorrect and (b) there are several spelling errors and (c) the manufacturer is mentioned as ‘Manufacturer’…


Helen’s Suitcase

Helen carries two identical suitcases; one for the regular travelling necessities and another for her professional tools (see below); a tea making set, assorted knives/grenades and finally a taken-down SIG SG 550.
