The following weapons were used in the film The Watcher:



Glock 17

Campbell (James Spader) carries a Glock 17 as his sidearm. Later, he gives it to Griffin (Keanu Reeves). Initially, the weapon is a 3rd Generation Glock 17, but after being given to Griffin, it changes to a 2nd Generation Glock.

Glock 17 3rd Generation - 9x19mm. Note the finger grooves, thumb reliefs, and accessory rail on the frame, which differentiate it from the older 2nd Generation model.
During the chase in the abandoned building, Campbell's Beretta becomes a Glock.

(Note that the much wider hole in the adapter indicates that it was meant to be used with full-flash motion picture blanks.) NOTE: This is not an airsoft gun with a visible inner barrel; BFAs can look very similar to airsoft inner barrels when viewed end-on.'
The pistol's serial number (BAB250) can be seen; it matches a Glock 17 2nd Generation that was manufactured in September 1994. Note the significant continuity error: Here, the Glock clearly has no accessory rail on the frame, indicating that it has become a 2nd Generation model, rather than the 3rd Generation model seen earlier in the movie.

Beretta 92FS

During the chase in the abandoned building, Campbell (James Spader) draws a Beretta 92FS, but in continuity error during a tight shot, he has a Glock 17, which briefly turns back into the Beretta, and finally the Glock for the rest of the chase.

Various Pistols

When the Chicago Police Department surrounds the second crime scene, police officers carry various pistols, which mostly seem to be revolvers.

Various handguns used by CPD officers.


Sawed-Off 12 Gauge Double Barreled Shotgun

Griffin uses a Sawed-Off Double Barreled Shotgun. Later, this gun is used by Campbell.
