Glock 17

The Glock 17 is the most common handgun featured in the series. Dr. Gil Grissom (William Petersen) carried one in Seasons 1-2 as well in Season 4's premiere, but after that was never seen wielding one again. Detective Vartann (Alex Carter) is also frequently seen carrying a Glock 17 as well as most of the junior detectives and officers. A man uses a full-sized Glock, believed to be a 17, to defend his store and mother in the episode "Better Off Dead". Dr. Ray Langston (Laurence Fishburne) used a Glock 17 in Season 11's "Cello and Goodbye".

Glock 19

The smaller Glock 19 also appears several times in the series. In one episode, two Glock 19s are found on two dead police officers in a hotel room. Captain Brass (Paul Guilfoyle) also carries this Glock as his sidearm in "Ellie". In Season 11's "Targets of Obsession" (S11E15), Jason McCann (Justin Bieber) is seen pulling a Glock 19 when confronting the LVPD.

In addition to the full-size Glock 17's, Sara Sidle (Jorja Fox), Catherine Willows (Marg Helgenberger) being one of the only CSIs to shoot and kill a suspect with their duty issue, and Sophia Curtis (Louise Lombard) each carried a Glock 26. CSI Morgan Brody (Elisabeth Harnois) carries a Glock 26 as her weapon. While Sara Sidle carried one from season 1-8, Catherine only used one from season 1 through season 3 where she then switched to a SIG P232. Detective Curtis carried one from season 6-8. The new CSI Riley Adams (Lauren Lee Smith) is also featured carrying a Glock 26. Gil Grissom carries one in Season 4, episode 6 entitled "Jackpot".

Glock 26 9x19mm

Smith & Wesson SW99

Nick Stokes (George Eads) uses a Smith & Wesson SW99 with a nickel-plated slide. Its most prominent showing is in the Season 5 finale "Grave Danger" when the gun is tossed in with Nick before he is buried alive in a Plexiglass coffin. Midway through the episode, having discovered that his built-in air supply is threatened by a light inside the coffin (which comes on whenever his colleagues activate a website and webcam that allows them to view his plight), Nick stuffs his ears with gum and then shoots out the light, giving Warrick Brown (Gary Dourdan) a scare (He later regrets it when fire ants invade the coffin). Nick frequently seen with his gun drawn is the final episodes of season 8 and 9 when apprehending the rogue Undersheriff Jeff McKeen (Conor O'Farrell). In the Season 10 finale Nick uses his SW99 to shoot Dr. Jekyll 6 times killing him instantly after Dr. Jekyll shoots him in the chest and shoulder with a shotgun. And also in the season 11 premire Nick shoots a suspect emptying his mag into the suspect and tries to reload and continue firing but due to PTSD from not backing up a Police Officer getting him killed (in season 10 finale). Catherine calms him down and makes him realize he was in shock. In Season 11's "Targets of Obsession", He is seen holding it on Jason McCann (Justin Bieber), before McCann pulls a Glock 19, where Stokes promptly unloads a magazine into McCann's chest, killing him.

In one episode, a man can be seen firing a Desert Eagle out the window of a truck at a man in a limousine.

Smith & Wesson Model 629

A Smith & Wesson Model 629 is test fired by Sara Sidle (Jorja Fox) in the Season 1 episode "Sex, Lies and Larvae". A noticeable error in the episode is that the coroner identifies the bullet wound being from a .38, whereas the 629 is only chambered in .44 Magnum.

Colt 1860 Army

In one episode, the team investigates a murder at a recreation of a western frontier town, where a man is killed in a classic western-style duel using Colt 1860 Army revolvers. The revolvers also had the barrels lined with oatmeal so they looked more realistic firing blank shot. Several are seen on display in episode "Better Off Dead."

NAA Mini revolver

In the episode "No Humans Involved", an NAA Mini Revolver was carried by Miguel Garabei (Chris Villa) in a belt holster and used to wound another. One was identified in the Season 9 episode "All In", as a "Vanderville Arms Concealable .22 LR" which does not exist.

Submachine Guns

FN P90

In "Zippered" (S12E09), a batch of FN P90s is stolen from the Middle East and snuck into the US. The CSIs erroneously state the the 5.7x28mm rounds used by the weapon are illegal in the United States. The gun is also continually referred to as a "Supergun", capable of cutting a man in half (Referred to by an FBI agent in the show as "Zippering", as if it's something they see every day).

Another peculiarity is that even the ballistics expert at CSI has never even heard of the caliber before.

There are several appearances of MAC-10s in the series, frequently seen used by criminals and gang members.

Ingram MAC-10 .45 ACP


Olympic Arms OA-93

Two of the bank robbers from the episode "Inside the Box" (Season 3, Episode 23) are armed with short AR-15 Pistols. The upper receivers seem to be the Olympic Arms OA-93, but the lower receivers have a short buffer tube, which is not necessary on the OA-93 design since the top receiver and foregrip include the innovative spring system that doesn't require a buffer tube and spring to operate the bolt carrier. Since the guns never fire in the episode, one can assume that a prop armorer assembled these pistols up from different guns. They are also seen fitted with telescoping stocks as used on M16 rifle series-type carbines.

OA-93 5.56x45mm

M4A1 Carbine

In several episodes, Las Vegas P.D. SWAT officers can be seen using M4A1 carbines, often fitted with accessories such as M68 Aimpoint red dot scopes and Surefire M500AB weaponlights.

X26 Taser

In one episode, an LVPD patrolman uses an X26 Taser to subdue a violent suspect after mace proves ineffective. When the suspect is shot with the Taser however, he bursts into flames and burns to death. Later on, Nick Stokes (George Eads) can be seen firing the Taser in the crime lab while trying to recreate the conditions of the incident, the investigation revealing that the mace used prior to the taser shot was a civilian brand that was not approved for LVPD use due to it being potentially flammable. This incident was later tested in an episode of Mythbusters, the hosts also having had a cameo appearance as lab technicians looking on as Nick Stokes was test-firing the Taser.
