Taken 3 (also known as Tak3n) is the third and final installment in the Taken film trilogy. Liam Neeson returns as former CIA operative Bryan Mills, who discovers he's been framed for murder and must evade both the authorities as well as the mobsters intent on killing him. Luc Besson returns as co-writer/executive producer and Olivier Megaton, the director of Taken 2, returns to helm this 2015 sequel. The Taken series would be revisited in a NBC television series prequel that premiered in 2017.
The following weapons were used in the film Taken 3:
Although the Beretta 92FS is the main pistol in the series, Bryan Mills (Liam Neeson) also wields a West German SIG-Sauer P226 throughout the film, which is one of two guns that he keeps hidden in his basement. Russian thugs are also seen using assorted P226 handguns, both older West German-made and newer American-made P226R models.
Note: Although Bryan uses the Glock 17 and the Beretta for most of the film, he also uses the P226 for some time. This is strange, since only one P226 has been seen in the whole series, and that was very briefly in the first film and the second film. This is probably because the film took place in America, unlike the last two, which had different armorers.
The Glock 17 appears to be the handgun carried by LAPD officers and detectives, including Det. Garcia (Don Harvey) and Det. Smith (Dylan Bruno). Bryan also uses Glock pistols that he takes from policemen for almost the whole film. A Russian thug is also seen with one.
When he goes to his hidden basement, aside from the Glock, Bryan retrieves parts of what appears to be a Steyr M9A1 and assembles it for use. It is likely supposed to be the same Steyr that Bryan used in Taken 2.
Springfield Armory TRP Operator
During the apartment shootout, Bryan Mills takes a Springfield Armory TRP Operator from a Russian thug and uses it throughout the rest of the climax.
Note: The pistol is fitted with an accessory rail, full length barrel and stainless muzzle, raised target sights, front slide serrations, ambidextrous safety, target three-hole ring trigger and skeletonized hammer. Based on film production, year of filming and weaponry, this is probably the same pistol used by Scarlett Johansson in Luc Besson's 2014 film Lucy.
What appears to be a CZ 75 "pre-B" pistol is held by a Russian gangster in a flashback.
Brügger & Thomet APC9
The Brügger & Thomet APC9 is used by one of Oleg Malankov's henchmen.
CZ vz. 61 E Skorpion
Oleg appears to be armed with the CZ vz. 61 E Skorpion during a flashback.
One of Oleg's henchmen uses a KRISS Vector during the apartment shootout. While the film depicts it firing fully automatic, the below screenshot shows that it lacks the forward firing rate selector, meaning that this is a civilian semi-auto Vector SBR, but could have been converted to fire full-auto by the film's armorers.
LAPD officers are seen with Mossberg 500 shotguns on several occasions, some equipped with heat shields and extended magazine tubes.
Benelli M3 Super 90 Entry
A Russian thug is seen using the Benelli M3 Super 90 Entry shotgun during the apartment shootout.
What appears to be an AKM is held by a Mujahideen soldier in a flashback to the Soviet-Afghan War. Some more Kalashnikov rifles are seen in other flashbacks.
Oleg uses the AKMS in a flashback. Some gunmen are also armed with the AKMS.
FN SCAR-L STD
Noveske N4 Diplomat
A Russian thug is seen using the Noveske N4 Diplomat during the apartment shootout.
SIG SG 550 SR
A SIG SG 550 SR sniper rifle is held by Oleg Malankov while he playfully aims at ladies playing tennis.
A Soviet RPD light machine gun is briefly seen on the Russian weapons table in a flashback.
