Beretta 92FS Inox

The Italian Carabinieri captain (Luigi Di Fiore) carries a Beretta 92FS Inox as his sidearm. He uses it most notably to kill an assassin in Milan. In real life, the Arma dei Carabinieri officers would have been using the Beretta 8000 Cougar or the standard-issue Beretta 92FS/SB.

Submachine Guns & Machine Pistols

Brügger & Thomet TP-9

All of the hitmen employed by IBBC wield Brügger & Thomet TP-9 machine pistols during the shootout in the Guggenheim museum in New York. The first gunman is seen with a suppressed version. The TP-9 is a semi-automatic civilian version of the full-auto Brügger & Thomet MP-9 machine pistol. The guns used in the film have been converted to automatic fire, altough some of the hitmen use their guns in semi-automatic fashion. Louis Salinger (Clive Owen) also picks up a couple of the TP-9s during the shootout, and somewhat realistically, has to reload twice. There is a scene in the film, where Salinger picks up one of the machine pistols and fires it semi-automatically, but then supposedly turns the gun to full-auto fire.

Sauer 200/202

The Consultant (Brian F. O'Brynne) is seen preparing and firing a take-down Sauer 200/202 in .300 Win Mag with a black composite stock and a suppressor before the assassination of Umberto Calvini. The Milan Sniper (Giorgio Lupano) is also seen with a Sauer 200/202 during the actual assassination of Umberto Calvini. The Consultant also uses a Sauer 200/202 as the second assassin during the Umberto Calvini hit. The rifle is explicitly referred to as a "Sauer 200" by Salinger when he examines the angle from which the bullets were fired.

AK Variant

An African gunman is seen with an unidentified AK-47 variant in a news broadcast. It is higly likely that the footage is actual stock news footage, and the person wielding it has a real, live-firing AK in his hands.
