Law & Order: Special Victims Unit - Season 6
The following lists the weapons seen in Season 6 of the series Law & Order: Special Victims Unit:
2nd and 3rd Generation Glock 19s are used by the majority of NYPD detectives in the Special Victims Unit including Detective Elliot Stabler (Christopher Meloni), Detective Olivia Benson (Mariska Hargitay), Detective John Munch (Richard Belzer) and Detective Odafin "Fin" Tutuola (Ice-T). Captain Donald Cragen (Dann Florek) is sometimes seen carrying one in some episodes. Uniformed NYPD Officers are seen using Glock 19s as well. Like many television shows and films, many times when a Glock is seen being drawn, the sound effect of a hammer cocking is heard (despite the fact that Glocks are hammerless).
A Glock 17 is sometimes seen in the hands of NYPD officers in lieu of the Glock 19. In reality, the Glock 19 is the only Glock pistol authorized for onduty carry by the NYPD.
Heckler & Koch MP5A3
The NYPD ESU Officers throughout the series use Heckler & Koch MP5A3s as one of their main weapons. They are fitted with various attachments, such as scopes or tactical flashlights.
The Ithaca 37 shotgun is another weapon frequently carried by NYPD ESU and other SWAT officers in the series.
