The Taking 123 of Pelham 123 (2009)

The Taking of Pelham 123 is the 2009 remake of the 1974 thriller The Taking of Pelham One Two Three. The film was directed by Tony Scott and stars Denzel Washington, James Gandolfini, and John Travolta.

The following weapons were used in the film The Taking of Pelham 123:

SIG-Sauer P229R

Dennis "Ryder" Ford (John Travolta) carries a two-tone SIG-Sauer P229R as his primary weapon.

Walther PPK/S

A Walther PPK/S is put in one of the money bags, where it mysteriously turns into a Kahr K9. Another error is that the NYPD officer showing Walter Garber how to use the PPK/S indicates that the safety was on when it was really off, and vice-versa.

SIG-Sauer P220

A SIG-Sauer P220 is used by Bashkim (Victor Gojcaj), one of the hijackers. In several scenes, it is possible to see that his SIG has the narrower frame of the P220.

Glock 19

NYPD officers in the subway tunnels and above ground are armed with Glock 19 pistols.

Kahr K9

The Walther PPK/S that was hidden for Walter Garber (Denzel Washington) magically transforms into a stainless steel Kahr K9 when he confronts Ryder (John Travolta). Garber is shown flipping the safety "off", a feature the Kahr K9 does not have (Washington actually hits the slide stop as a stand in for the safety lever).

SIG-Sauer SSG 3000

A NYPD sniper is shown aiming a SIG-Sauer SSG 3000 rifle fitted with a Harris bipod and what looks like a Leatherwood/Hi-Lux Computer scope at the hijacked subway car.

NYPD ESU teams are seen carrying M4A1's into the tunnel as they prepare to engage the hijackers.
