The film also stars Angelina Jolie and Morgan Freeman.
The following weapons were used in the film Wanted:
WARNING! THIS PAGE CONTAINS SPOILERS!
Safari Arms Matchmaster
Fox (Angelina Jolie) packs a custom Safari Arms Matchmaster 1911 clone with a Wilson 10 round magazine, Parrish 1911 Bushing Compensator (which would cause a muzzle flash that would likely blind her in low-light situations), engraved ivory grips, and custom engraved slide throughout the film. The official website of the film describes: "Fox's weapon of choice is a custom .45 caliber SAFARI MATCHMASTER semi automatic pistol. Although she prefers its lightweight versatility, she is a virtuoso with any firearm which exists".

During the shootout at the pharmacy, Fox (Angelina Jolie) uses a CornerShot device together with her Matchmaster, allowing her to look and shoot around corners during a shootout with Cross (Thomas Kretschmann) in the grocery store. It's obviously based on the real CornerShot, but there isn't a type like the one used in the film.

Custom Beretta 92S
Mr. X's (David O'Hara) sidearm used in the opening sequence is a customised Beretta 92S. It has ornate grips and a compensator.
Later it is given to Wesley (James McAvoy) to shoot the wings off of flies, to prove he is gifted. Sloan (Morgan Freeman) refers to it as an "Imanishi 17," though no known make or model of firearm exists. Wesley hides the Beretta in the toilet and after leaving it there to soak for about a week, he retrieves it and uses it while chasing Cross through the parking garage, accidentally shooting The Exterminator (Konstantin Khabensky) instead. He then uses it for the shootout on the train with Cross, firing several shots at him before he drops it during the crash and draws his Star Ultrastar. In one of the wallpapers, Wesley can be seen holding a 92FS with same customisations.

Much to Wesley's horror, he realises what happened in the Mill was not a dream when the Beretta falls from his pants when he goes to the bathroom. He then hides it in the toilet.

Wesley slowly begins to cock the hammer with a double action trigger pull. It should be said that, in the previous shot, to look more threatening, Wesley cocks the hammer. In this shot, it is now back up.
Wesley fires his Beretta at Cross. Note that the magazine release is not where it is on modern guns, which tells us it is not a 92S-1.
Mauser C96 - M712 "Schnellfeuer"
Sloan (Morgan Freeman) is seen armed with a M712 "Schnellfeuer" or "Fastfire" (in German), the select fire version of the C96 "Broomhandle" Mauser with a detachable box magazine instead of a fixed internal magazine loaded with stripper clips.
Mauser M712 Schnellfeuer - 7.63x25mm.
Morgan Freeman wields an Mauser M712 Schnellfeuer pistol in the weaving room. This shot is likely from a deleted scene or publicity photo since this sequence never seen in the film.

Heckler & Koch USP Compact
Wesley (James McAvoy) uses a Heckler & Koch USP Compact with a silver outer barrel as his weapon of choice throughout the movie and for his first two kills and his first bullet curve. He also briefly uses one during the final gunfight at the textile mill. But before taking the UMP from a guard, we can see that its changes into a Jericho 941. It is most likely the 9mm or the .40 S&W version. Because Wesley fires 13 rounds. The possibility of this being the .40 is because there might be one bullet in the chamber, making 12 in the mag and one in the chamber. Or he didn't, and fired 13 rounds with a 9mm version. It is of course, not the .45 since the .45 has a different frame under the rail. In the extended scene, Fox gives her USP compact to Wesley for him to know what it feels like to put a bullet in a body. So it might be Fox's Backup gun. And in the extended scene, Wesley has a revealed hammer.
Heckler & Koch USP Compact - 9x19mm
Fox is seen shooting out the window of her car with a USP Compact, which switches to a Baby Eagle shortly after.

Jericho 941 "Baby Eagle"
Pekwarsky (Terence Stamp) uses a reverse two-tone (stainless frame, blued slide) Jericho 941 "Baby Eagle" to hold on Wesley in the castle. Full black Baby Eagles are also seen in the hands of multiple other people, usually just briefly as continuity errors. Wesley most notably uses several during the Mill shootout, one of which he uses to kill The Butcher (Dato Bakhtadze) by firing a steel poker rod into him after he accidentally jams it down the muzzle of the gun. In reality, this would not fire the rod like a big bullet, but become an obstruction and blow up the gun.

Fox pushes out her windshield with her Jericho 941 "Baby Eagle" in hand, which was a USP Compact seconds before.

An assassin in the Mill throws his Baby Eagle in the air as he dies, which is a CGI replica.
The CGI Baby Eagle flies through the air which Wesley catches upside down. He then fires it upside down, using his pinky to pull the trigger. In reality, this makes shooting extremely difficult. This type of "shooting" is also seen in The Bourne Identity

The Butcher jams a steel rod down the muzzle of Wesley's Baby Eagle, which miraculously fits the muzzle diameter exactly.

Jericho 941 FBL Compact
Cross (Thomas Kretschmann) uses a Jericho 941 FBL Compact "Baby Eagle" as his weapon of choice in the film. The rounds his gun are shown firing are far too large to be chambered in the breech or to fit in the magazine. Wesley can also be seen using one in the final gun fight in the fraternity mill, but changes into a full size version instead.

Smith & Wesson 5906
Wesley is briefly seen picking up two Smith & Wesson 5906 pistols during the shootout in the mill, although he never uses them. It is implied that he lost them when the stairs collapsed, and that he had picked up the two Baby Eagles before confronting the Butcher. However when the barrel is jammed, the handguns switch back to 5906's! One of the assassins in The Fraternity library is also armed with a 5906.
Smith & Wesson 5906 - 9x19mm.
Wesley picks up a Smith & Wesson 5906 in his right hand.
Wesley picks up a Smith & Wesson 5906 in his left hand.

The assassin cocks the hammer on his 5906, which is used instead to portray The Gunsmith cocking his M1911A1. If you look close enough at the frame under the slide release, you can read the "5906" stamp.
Smith & Wesson Model 64
Wesley picks up Smith & Wesson Model 64, the stainless counterpart of the Smith & Wesson Model 10 in the mill and uses it to kill The Repairman (Marc Warren) with a shot to the eye. He then jams the barrel of the gun through his head and fires an impossible twenty shots through his skull, using him as a "meat shield".

Smith & Wesson Schofield Model 3
The Repairman (Marc Warren) uses a Smith & Wesson Schofield Model 3 revolver as his weapon of choice in the film. the gun's ejector does not seem to work properly and the latch behind the sights seems to be broken since he is constantly having trouble closing the gun.

This pistol is most definitively a sterling type 1 cut and modified with a top rail.

I think the magazine is gravity-fed. Notice how both Cross and Wesley try to fire the gun upside-down.
Sawed-Off Double Barrel Shotgun
Fox pulls a Sawed-Off Double Barreled Shotgun from under the seat of her car and fires it at Cross during the chase. The gun makes the typical "pump-action cocking" sound when drawn.

A much clearer shot of this scene from a promotional image. The image is a production still taken by a professional set photographer and not a 'blow up' from a frame of film, thus the increase in image clarity and sharpness.

Heckler & Koch UMP-9

Heckler & Koch MP7A1
Cross is seen trying to fire a Heckler & Koch MP7A1 with a reflex sight "pistol style", meaning stock retracted, fore grip folded like a handgun while chasing after Fox and Wesley in her car. Wesley is also seen briefly firing one in final battle, which strangely changed from a Heckler & Koch UMP-9. While in the movie it was only seen in a flashback in Cross's hand, in the trailers he is actually seen firing it.

Fantasy Sniper rifle
Cross (Thomas Kretschmann) uses a made up Rogue Assassin Sniper Rifle built from one of the flintlock/matchlock hybrids to kill Mr. X in the beginning of the film, using a telescope along with the rifle scope to aim at such an incredible distance. At the end of the film, Wesley uses the same rifle. To portray the flight path of the unique bullet, the bullet's path is rewound until it reaches the rifle again.

An M4A1 with an A.R.M.S. selective integrated rail system and scope is used by a sniper at the beginning of the film to kill Mr. X's secretary and to fire several shots at him before he flies out the window and kills him. I believe it could also very well be a Charles Daly Defense M4 with that rail setup.
Colt M4A1 with RIS rails and M68 Aimpoint scope - 5.56x45mm.
