The following weapons were used in the film I Am Legend:
WARNING! THIS PAGE CONTAINS SPOILERS!
Heckler & Koch Mark 23
Dr. Robert Neville (Will Smith) uses a Heckler & Koch Mark 23 with a flat earth (tan) frame as his main sidearm. He is seen with it holstered, but also carries one in the driver's door, most notably to shooting the infected dogs in the middle of the film. There were several identical firing Mark 23s used on-set, as well as rubber versions for stunt work. For most scenes where Will Smith carried the weapon in the holster, a lightweight airsoft Mark 23 (with frame painted tan to match the firing pistols) was used.

Smith & Wesson 5946
Robert Neville (Will Smith) draws a Smith & Wesson 5946 on Anna (Alice Braga) and Ethan (Charlie Tahan). The 5946 in the DAO setting is one of three pistols used by the NYPD (the other two being the Glock 19 and the P226 DAO), so it was likely recovered by Neville from an NYPD precinct.

Special Weapons MP-10
Special Weapons MP-10s are used by the two Army Rangers that escort Dr. Neville to the dock. The first is seen when Neville says "five minutes, we'll make it". The second when Dr. Neville orders the other troops to "get your hands off my wife".

Rifles & Carbines
Colt Law Enforcement Model 6920 Carbine
Robert Neville (Will Smith) uses a semi-automatic Colt AR-15 model that closely resembles an M4A1 carbine; this variant is referred to in the company's catalog as the "Law Enforcement Carbine", or the Model 6920 (see here for more info on this model). The LE Carbine is a semi-automatic-only variant of the M4 with a 16" barrel, but according to the Propstore of London, the weapon was modified to fire automatic for the film. His AR is also equipped with an ACOG (TA31 Series) sight attachment throughout the movie. The tactical light on the gun is a Pentagon MD3R.
