The Killing Machine
The Killing Machine is a 2010 action film that was the sixth independent film directed by Dolph Lundgren, who stars as a former KGB agent-turned-mafia hitman who must protect his family after he is targeted for execution by unknown forces. The original title is Icarus.
The following weapons were used in the film The Killing Machine (aka Icarus):
Desert Eagle Mark XIX
A Desert Eagle Mark XIX fitted with a suppressor is used by Edward Genn/Icarus (Dolph Lundgren) during the opening assassination scene in Hong Kong.
Desert Eagle Mark XIX - .50 AE
Icarus enters the hotel suite with his Desert Eagle (suppressed) drawn.
Note scope rails on top of the barrel, identifying this Eagle as a Mark XIX.

Beretta 92FS Inox
Icarus' sidearm of choice for most of the movie is a Beretta 92FS Inox. Due to a continuity error, his Beretta tends to become a nickel-plated Taurus PT92 (often in the space of the same scene).

The assassins who attempt to kill Icarus and his ex-wife Joey (Stefanie von Pfetten) at the hotel are armed with suppressed Walther P99s, one of which is taken by Joey and used to save Icarus. He later shows her how to use the weapon.

During the flashback to his days as a KGB officer, Icarus is seen using Makarov PM (which actually appears to be a non-firing rubber stunt version).
Commercial imported Makarov by Baikal, called the IJ-70
- 9x18mm Makarov. It features an adjustable rear sight, not seen on the military Makarov pistol. Also, the finish is inferior to the original Makarov PM.

During the shootout at Kerr's farm, Icarus (Dolph Lundgren) grabs a Remington 870 and uses it for most of the shootout. Due to a continuity error, it continually alternates between a standard police riot model and a Slug Gun (recognizable by the rifle sights).

M4A1 Carbine/Olympic Arms K3B-FT
M4A1 carbines fitted with Knight Armament Company RAS forearms and vertical grips are used by Vadim (Bo Svenson) and his henchmen. When the M4s are issued from his gun safe in the climax of the film, many of them clearly have the "Stowaway" pistol grip only found on the K3B-FT, the Olympic Arms copy of the M4. Also, the non-firing M4s in the movie are actually Classic Army M15A4 airsoft replicas of the M4 (see below).

Some of the non-firing M4A1 carbines seen in the climax being used by Vadim (Bo Svenson) and his henchmen are actually Classic Army M15A4 airsoft replicas of the M4. They are recognizable by their white-painted fire position markings on the lower receivers (which no real AR-15 manufacturer uses).
