Glock 23

A Glock 23 is the gun carried by Lenny Nero (Ralph Fiennes). The gun is identified as a Glock 23 by Max Peltier (Tom Sizemore) in the final scenes. Earlier in the film, Lenny is seen using a Glock 17 (as discussed below), and even puts the gun into a duffle bag with a box of .40-caliber ammunition, but the gun does not become an actual Glock 23 until the later scenes of the film.

Glock 17

Lenny Nero picks up a Glock 17 from under his bed after realizing that an intruder is in his house. He is later seen loading the gun into a bag with a box of .40-caliber ammunition, indicating that the Glock 17 is substituting in the scene for the Glock 23 that he uses later.
