Hitman is the 2007 feature film adaptation of the popular video game series of the same name. The film stars Timothy Olyphant as the titular character also known by the codename Agent 47, a genetically enhanced human raised from birth for the specific purpose of becoming an assassin. After performing one of his missions, Agent 47 then finds himself pursued by both Interpol as well as Russian military forces. The cast included Dougray Scott, Olga Kurylenko, and Michael Offei. The film did not perform to box office expectations and the Hitman franchise would not return to the big screen until 2015's reboot Hitman: Agent 47 that starred Rupert Friend as the titular character.
The following weapons were used in the film Hitman:
For his main weapons, Agent 47 (Timothy Olyphant) carries two stainless steel-finished Para-Ordnance P18 1911 clone pistols, which are sometimes fitted with suppressors. Proper ID of the weapons can be obtained through various sources related to the movie, including the movie's web site (which, despite naming them as AMT Silverballers, clearly show a Para-Ordnance P18.9), DVD special features, publicity shots and a few fleeting close-up shots in the movie. Despite a scene in which 47 tells Nika (Olga Kurylenko) that his guns are .45s, the P18.9 is actually a high-capacity 9x19mm clone of the 1911.

At the end of the shootout at Udre Belicoff's (Henry Ian Cusick's) place, Agent 47 grabs a Para-Ordnance LDA ("Light Double-Action") pistol from Udre's arms stash. A rival hitman from the Organization carries a suppressed LDA.

Heckler & Koch USP (Custom Sport)
Interpol Special Agent Jenkins (Michael Offei) carries a Heckler & Koch USP handgun with a Surefire 309R (a very rare tactical light). The weapon has tall adjustable sights, so it is possible that this is the USP Custom Sport variant. The Custom Sport was never imported to the United States, but since this film was produced in Bulgaria, it's probable that the Bulgarian armorers who worked on the film did have access to one of these pistols.

Jenkins aims his USP at the elevator where the commandos have just been slaughtered by 47. Note the adjustable sights in this picture, which suggests that his USP is a Custom Sport.
During the weapons deal at his palace, Udre Belicoff (Henry Ian Cusick) points a Makarov PM at a hooker's eye and then fires it at Agent 47. Being ignorant of guns in general, despite being an illegal arms dealer, Udre claims that the Makarov PM fires .22LR ammunition: yet another in a long series of factually false statements by Belicoff. To be fair, there was a .22 LR conversion kit available for the Makarov (), but it seems unlikely that Udre would know this. However, the screenshot shows that the barrel diameter less than 9mm Makarov caliber, so we can assume that it is either true .22 caliber or one of Makarov air versions.
Udre picks up the Makarov from the table.

Taurus PT92 pistols are used by the other hitmen from The Organization in the fight scene on the train. The guns are modified with some type of custom-built compensator.

Heckler & Koch MP5A3
During the shootout at Udre Belicoff's palace, Agent 47 arms himself with two Heckler & Koch MP5A3s, fitted with tri-rails, that are sitting on the table. It's a notable goof that he never slaps down the bolts after he loads in the magazines, yet a split second later, both guns are fully cocked and he begins shooting with them.
Many of Mikhail Belicoff's bodyguards are also armed with MP5A3s, though theirs do not have the tri-rail.

The first weapon that Udre Belicoff (Henry Ian Cusick) shows off to his clients is a Bulgarian Arsenal Shipka submachine gun, which fires the same 9x18mm ammunition as the Makarov. However, he erroneously calls it a "Kedr 9mm compact", referring to the Russian-made Kedr PP-91. Udre misidentifies this weapon amongst other odd remarks indicating that he knows little about the weapons that he sells. Agent 47 remarks that it's actually a "Chinese copy", but in reality, the Chinese do not manufacture a copy of the PP-91, however Agent 47 misrepresents the gun intentionally, (a) to keep Udre Bellicoff from shooting a crying girl in the eye with a Makarov Pistol and (b) to enrage him so that he takes a shot at Agent 47, thus creating the chaos needed for Agent 47 to strike.
A close inspection reveals that the gun they both handle is most definitely a Shipka and not a Kedr PP-91. Pictures of both weapon types are shown below for comparison's sake.
Arsenal Shipka 9x18mm (this is definitely the type of machine pistol used in the film)
Kedr PP-91 9x18mm (compare this picture to the gun in the screenshots below, and you can see it looks nothing like the weapon that Udre and 47 are holding).
Udre Belicoff (Henry Ian Cusick
) holding the Bulgarian Shipka SMG, which he refers to as a "Kedr". Note that the barrel of the gun is obviously the wrong shape/length for a Kedr PP-91, and that the shape of the magazine well matches that of the Shipka.
A closer view of the pistol grip. Why Kedr specifically? There is a very good chance that the original script had the name "Kedr" in it, however, the armorers for the film could only acquire the Shipka for the scene.
47 (Timothy Olyphant
) holding the Shipka. This screenshot gives a better view of the shape of the gun; you can clearly see that the shape of the folding stock is far more like that of the Shipka than that of the Kedr.
Arsenal AR and AR-F
One of the most commonly seen assault rifles in the movie is the Bulgarian-manufactured Arsenal AR, along with its folding-stock version, the AR-F. These are the AK-47-type rifles that are used by the Russian Alpha commandos and seen on the table and walls in Udre Belicoff's palace. Agent 47 himself also briefly uses a heavily kitted-out Arsenal AR at Udre's place during the big shootout. The AR is a modernized version of the original AK-47 which features the same milled receiver of the older rifle, but with black synthetic furniture and several other improvements. Because Hitman was filmed mostly in Bulgaria, it makes sense that the Bulgarian armorers who worked on the movie would have had easy access to weapons made in their own country, hence the frequent use of these rifles.
Interestingly, all of the Bulgarian AR rifles in the movie seem to be fitted with East German-style blank-firing adapters (BFAs) on the muzzles, which are clearly visible in all of the screencaps below.

Quite a few original milled-receiver AK-47s can also be seen in the film. They are used first by the rebel fighters in Niger at the beginning of the movie, and again by the Russian Alpha guards at Udre Belicoff's funeral (it is most likely that their use is supposed to be ceremonial, in much the same way that M14 rifles are used by U.S. Honor Guards).

Some of the Interpol SWAT operators also use the FN F2000 Tactical bullpup assault rifle, fitted with Bushnell holosight red dot sights.

M4A1 with M203 Grenade Launcher
During the shootout at the hotel, one of the Russian Alpha commandos who gets shot by Agent 47 in the elevator is armed with an M4A1 Carbine with an M203 grenade launcher.
Later at his palace, Udre Belicoff shows off another M4/M203 combo (which appears to be the exact same prop gun used by the commando earlier in the movie), but inaccurately describes it as an "M203 with under-barrel grenade launcher"(!?!) as well as claiming that the weapon fires 7.62x39mm ammunition, even though it actually fires 5.56x45mm NATO ammunition. This is one of the many factually inaccurate statements that Udre makes about the weapons he is selling, as Agent 47 himself points out.

In the weapons DVD feature, no M4s are seen, and the title of the guns are simply "M16". Here we see a man showing off a CAR-15, likely a Model 723 or 725 with an M4-style barrel to accept a grenade launcher.

Udre Belicoff (Henry Ian Cusick) can be seen dual-wielding two RPD light machine guns during the shootout at his palace. Udre's guns seem to have black synthetic stocks and grips instead of the usual wood and Bakelite furniture, indicating that they may be a more modern derivative of non-Russian manufacture. On a side note one RPD weighs in at 16.3 lbs and wielding two of them would be 32.6 lbs.

Blaser R93 LRS2
Agent 47 (Timothy Olyphant) uses the Blaser R93 LRS2 sniper rifle when he kills Russian President Mikhail Belicoff (Ulrich Thomsen). He is seen with the Blaser R93, using the scope to see Nika from a distance, and killing another hitman who tries to kill Nika (also armed with a Blaser R93). The Blaser R93 is 47's main sniper rifle in the first Hitman game, Hitman: Codename 47.
