The Man from U.N.C.L.E. is the 2015 feature film adaptation of the 1964 television series of the same name that was created by Sam Rolfe and starred Robert Vaughn and David McCallum. Like the series, the film is set during the height of the Cold War in the early 1960s and chronicles the meeting and subsequent teaming up of American CIA Agent Napoleon Solo (Henry Cavill) and Russian KGB Agent Illya Kuryakin (Armie Hammer) in order to stop a mysterious international criminal organization, whose goal is to destabilize the fragile balance of power through the proliferation of nuclear weapons and technology.

The following weapons were used in the film The Man from U.N.C.L.E.:



Browning Hi-Power

Napoleon Solo (Henry Cavill) carries a Browning Hi-Power as his personal sidearm. Illya Kuryakin (Armie Hammer) later uses one as well.

Makarov PM

Illya Kuryakin (Armie Hammer) and East German police (Volkspolizei) officers are seen with the Makarov PM as their primary firearm.

Walther PPK

Walther GSP Expert

Illya Kuryakin (Armie Hammer) uses a modified Walther GSP Expert during the final assault. Equipped with a custom pistol grip, shoulder stock, suppressor, scope, extended magazine and extended barrel, this appears to be an homage to the U.N.C.L.E. Custom Pistol from the series, which was a similarly modified Walther P38. But, as Illya is the only one to use it in the film, and since the United Network Command for Law and Enforcement only came about at the end of the film, this can be more accurately described as a KGB Custom Pistol. Also unlike the original U.N.C.L.E. pistol, it's never seen used as a pistol, only as a carbine. The only shot of it disassembled is during the end credits.

A shot of the disassembled weapon during the end credits. Firstly, we can see that the compensator has been removed entirely, secondly, that it has a front sight post, just forward of the front scope mount, thirdly, that the pistol has some barrel (threaded) even without the extended barrel, and finally that the extended barrel's muzzle end is the same diameter as the pistol's barrel, and that its rear end is far larger, all implying that it is actually an optional screw-over extension, and that not only can the pistol be used without the extension (like the original) but that it can be suppressed while doing so.

Submachine Guns


East German border guards and police are armed with PPSh-41s.

M1 Carbine

American troops are armed with M1 Carbines at Checkpoint Charlie.

Kalashnikov-type rifle

East German border guards are armed with a Kalashnikov-type weapon, and other than the fact that they're chambered in 7.62x39mm, it's impossible to determine anything more precise than that.

SIG SG 542

Vinciguerra henchmen are also armed with SIG SG 542s, which would be anachronistic since this rifle was introduced in 1977 and this film takes place in 1963.

Unidentified sniper rifle (probably a Lee-Enfield L42A1)

A Royal Marine sniper uses a bolt-action sniper rifle to pick off guards during the final assault. It's not possible to make a positive ID, as the same netting that breaks up the sniper's outline also hinders proper identification, but based on the Lee-Enfield bolt handle, time period, and its usage with Royal Marines, this is most likely the L42A1.

Hispano Mk V 20mm Cannon

The Hawker Sea Hawks on board the HMS Hermes are presumably armed with four 20mm Hispano Mk V cannons.
