Sicario: Day of the Soldado is the 2018 sequel to the 2015 crime thriller Sicario. The sequel was written by Sicario screenwriter Taylor Sheridan and directed by Stefano Sollima (Without Remorse). Benicio del Toro returns as the mysterious operative Alejandro, who reunites with his US government operative partner Matt Graver (Josh Brolin) in order to start a war between rival Mexican cartels to disrupt terrorist attacks on US soil. Jeffrey Donovan also returns as Steve Forsing from the original film.

The following weapons were used in the film Sicario: Day of the Soldado:

SPOILERS.jpg WARNING! Major Spoilers!


Smith & Wesson 910

Alejandro (Benicio del Toro) uses a Smith & Wesson third generation semi-automatic pistol with blued finish as his sidearm in the film. It is probably a model 910, judging by the rear sight and lack of an ambidextrous safety lever, but it could also be a 915 with different sights. It cannot be a 5904 or 5944 because it has a safety lever on the left hand side only and is missing a double stack bulge by the trigger guard (910s and 915s have the bulge under the dust cover so it is almost hidden).

Beretta 92FS

A Beretta 92FS (fitted with a flush-fit barrel that does not extend past the slide) is used by Alejandro Gillick (Benicio del Toro) during the war against the cartel. NOTE: Although this may appear to be the similar Beretta 92FS Centurion model, close examination reveals that while the barrel does not extend past the tip of the slide, the slide itself is longer than a Centurion-style slide. Likely, this is a regular 92FS fitted with an aftermarket shorter barrel.

This specific Beretta 92FS with a flush fit barrel also appears later in Scream (2022)
