The film stars Tobin Bell, Scott Patterson, Costas Mandylor, Lyriq Bent, and Louis Ferreira and was released in the United States on October 26, 2007 by Lionsgate. The film continues the story of the Jigsaw Killer's obsession with teaching people the value of their lives and occurs roughly at the same time as the previous installment. Despite Jigsaw's death, the film focuses on his ability to manipulate people into continuing his work. The story follows Officer Daniel Rigg being put through a series of tests in order to try to let go of his obsession with saving everyone, while at the same time attempting to save his partner. A sequel, titled Saw V, was released in 2008.

Note: This is the only film in the franchise where firearms are not used in any trap directly.

Handguns

Beretta 92FS

The Beretta 92FS pistols are seen in the holsters of Daniel Rigg (Lyriq Bent) and another SWAT officer, who arrive at the place of Kerry's execution. In the evening at his home, waking up after being attacked by a Pig Mask Man, Rigg takes his service pistol out from the nightstand and slowly follows into the living room, where he meets Brenda (Sarain Boylan) and and receives instructions for his first test, keeping the pistol at the ready. Having received the key to 261st room in Alexander Motel, he goes there with the Beretta. There, he checks the room and receives instructions for the next test, constantly holding and using a pistol. He literally takes Ivan Landsness (Marty Adams) hostage, threatening him with a gun, and forces him to participate in the test. Thereafter, the pistol is briefly seen in Rigg's hands in the abandoned elementary school and Gideon meatpacking plant when he passes his third and final test, respectively. Hearing Eric speak , he bursts into the room, ignoring Art's screams not to open the door and shoots at Art Blank twice, mistaking him for Jigsaw's accomplice. In parallel with this, Jeff (Angus Macfadyen) again walks through the building with a Beretta 92FS, partially repeating footage from the previous film.

After the arrest of Jill Tuck, Strahm decides to conduct an interrogation. He unloads the pistol and hands over the magazine to Perez in accordance with safety regulations. During interrogation, the pistol is constantly seen in his holster. When a SWAT team breaks into Art Blank's old apartment, Glock 17 is seen in a Lamanna's (Simon Reynolds) holster and briefly in Strahm's hands.

Billy the Puppet Gun

The result of the test for Special Agent Perez and Special Agent Strahm is a room, in the center of which is a Billy the Puppet sitting on a chair in a circle of candles with a tape recorder hanging from his neck. While playing the tape, the agents ignore ticking sounds. At the end, Perez leans towards the puppet and at this moment the gun, hidden in Billy's face, is activated and wounds Perez with shrapnel.

Shotgun Collar

Since the action of the fourth film happens in parallel with the third film, Jeff (Angus Macfadyen) and Lynn (Bahar Soomekh) return in the film. When Agent Strahm arrives at Gideon meatpacking plant to arrest Jigsaw, the scene in which Amanda (Shawnee Smith) shoots Lynn is repeated. At this moment, the shotgun collar is visible on Lynn's neck.

The shotgun collar can briefly be seen on Lynn's neck.

Spike Crossbow

The third test in Rigg's game was a spike trap. Two victims, Morgan (Janet Land) and Rex (Ron Lea), had leather straps that were chained to a metal pillar back to back. They were pierced by eight long, thin metal spikes. For this, a special custom crossbow was installed in the same room. When the police arrive at the elementary school where the game took place, one of the forensic investigators accidentally activated the device used to pierce Morgan and Rex, which subsequently shoots a police photographer (Joanne Boland).

The crossbow first appears on a small cart when Rex and Morgan woke up.
