Half Past Dead
The following weapons were used in the film Half Past Dead:
At the beginning of the film, Sasha Petrosevitch (Steven Seagal) is briefly seen wielding a stainless or nickel-plated 1911-type pistol of unknown make/model, as per the norm in Seagal's movies. It is never seen clearly enough to properly identify. It looks a little like a Kimber Stainless Target II, but this is probably not the right model.
The Vektor SP1, a South African service pistol that is little-known in the U.S., is the sidearm of choice for most of the 49er terrorists. Sasha Petrosevitch (Steven Seagal) takes one of these pistols from a 49er and uses it for a good part of the film. He also uses a pair of SP1s akimbo during the final shootout, firing them from the crashed helicopter. Nick Frazier (Ja Rule) also uses a Vektor SP1 in several scenes.
Heckler & Koch VP70
49er One (Morris Chestnut) carries a Heckler & Koch VP70 as his sidearm throughout the movie.
Beretta 92FS Inox
FBI Agent Williams (Claudia Christian) carries a Beretta 92FS Inox as her sidearm. She uses a pair of these pistols akimbo in the opening shootout at the chop shop.
The prison guards, some of the mercenaries, and most of the FBI Agents carry the standard blued Beretta 92FS as sidearms. Nick Frazier (Ja Rule) uses a pair of these pistols in the chop shop shootout. Due to a continuity error, 49er Six (Nia Peeples) goes from using a pair of Vektor SP1s to using Beretta 92Fs in the final shootout.
Several Taurus PT92s are also seen in the movie as stand-ins for the Beretta 92F (due to continuity errors, these pistols sometimes replace the Berettas in between cuts, even when being wielded by the same character).
Heckler & Koch MP5A3
The Heckler & Koch MP5A3 is one of the most commonly-seen weapons in the movie. It is used by the 49ers terrorist group during their assault on Alcatraz, and by many of the FBI agents. The MP5A3s are a mix of models with SEF and Navy-style lower receivers; most also have laser sights.
IMI Micro Uzi
Twitch (Kurupt) grabs a Micro Uzi from the Alcatraz armory and uses it in the final shootout. There is a continuity error regarding this weapon; in some shots, his Micro Uzi is a mil-spec model with the side-folding stock, while in other shots, it is a converted civilian Uzi Pistol with no folding stock. Some of Nick's thugs are also seen using Micro Uzis in the chop shop shootout.
IMI Mini Uzi
In the opening shootout at the chop shop, at least one of Nick's thugs fires at the FBI with a Mini Uzi.
Heckler & Koch G36
When the convicts are taking weapons from the armory, several Heckler & Koch G36 assault rifles fitted with bipod handguards can be seen sitting atop several of the weapons lockers.
Heckler & Koch G36K
Several of the FBI Agents can be seen using Heckler & Koch G36K carbine assault rifles. When the Alcatraz prisoners break into the armory, they also acquire and use several G36Ks.
M16A1 (with M16A2 handguards)
An M16A1 with M16A2 hand guards is used by an FBI Agent in the shootout at the chop shop early in the movie.
A rack of M16A2 rifles can be seen in the armory at Alcatraz when the prisoners are arming up to take on the 49ers.
Mossberg 590 shotguns with heat shields are used by many of the Alcatraz prison guards.
When the convicts grab weapons from the Alcatraz armory to fight the 49ers, Little Joe (Michael Taliferro) grabs an FN MAG general-purpose machine gun with no heat shield (the U.S. military equivalent being designated M240G). Of course, in real life, it would be absurd for a prison to keep GPMGs in its armory.
An MG42 light machine gun is used as a remote-controlled turret gun on the crashed helicopter. Nick Frazier (Ja Rule) uses it to shoot down two RPGs fired from less than 50 feet below (in yet another example of this movie's absurdity).
A Browning M1919A4 is also visible in the Alcatraz armory atop one of the weapons lockers.
Custom RPG launcher (modified M72 LAW?)
The 49ers bring several rocket launchers with them, which appear to be M72 LAWs fitted with fake RPG-7-style warheads, but this is not certain. In one scene, Twitch (Kurupt) fires one of these launchers at a door, and the movie grossly exaggerates the recoil of the launcher (and Twitch's small stature) by throwing him back several meters into a glass window.
