Pistols

Glock 17

One of the most prominent weapons in the film is the Glock 17 pistol, shown as the apparent standard sidearm of New York City Police officers, including Det. Jack Mosley (Bruce Willis) and Det. Frank Nugent (David Morse). Some can also be seen equipped with weaponlights being used by NYPD Emergency Service Unit officers during the apartment raid at the beginning of the film and during the bus standoff later on. The pistols switch between 2nd and 3rd-generation models several times during the film. It should be noted the the Glock 19 rather than the full-size Glock 17 is the actual approved sidearm for the NYPD.

During a scene in a bar, Mosley's Glock 17 briefly turns into a second generation Glock 19.

Smith & Wesson Model 60

After losing his Glock at the bar, Mosley returns to his sister's apartment and retrieves a stainless Smith & Wesson Model 60 revolver from the closet. He then uses it as a backup weapon throughout the film after taking another Glock from one of the corrupt cops pursuing him. Eddie uses it briefly when he sneaks up on Nugent from behind, holding him at gunpoint with it while Mosley handcuffs him. These were authorized as back-up and off-duty guns for NYPD officers. The model used in the film is fitted with black synthetic grips as opposed to the standard wooden ones.

Walther PPK/S

When pursuing Mosley and Eddie through Chinatown, Nugent pulls a blued Walther PPK/S from a hidden ankle holster, dual-wielding it with his Glock 17 when he bursts into the room where the two are holed up.

Submachine Guns

Heckler & Koch MP5A3

The Heckler & Koch MP5A3 appears in the film being used by NYPD ESU. Models with both SEF and Navy trigger groups are seen used, most notably during the raid on the apartment at the beginning of the film, and during the hostage situation on the bus. As with most SWAT-issue MP5's, they are all fitted with Surefire dedicated forend weaponlights.

Some of the MP5s seen used in the film are MP5A5 variants, noted by the 4-position Navy-style lower receivers.

Remington Spartan

During the encounter with Detective Frank Nugent at the bar, Mosley takes a Remington Spartan 12 gauge double-barreled shotgun with a sawed-off stock & barrels from behind the counter and uses it to shoot one of the corrupt officers, then hold off the others while he and Eddie make their escape, dumping it in a trash can outside. When asked why he discarded the weapon, Mosley replied that the shells in it were over 20 years old and that it was luck that it fired at all. (An unusual statement since ammunition can last far longer than 20 years when properly stored.) Originally, the Remington Spartan line of entry-level shotguns was produced by Baikal, a Russian manufacturer.

Rifles

Remington 700PSS

During the hostage situation aboard the bus, NYPD snipers can be seen with Remington 700PSS rifles, with and without Harris bipods. One is later used by a ESU sniper at the courthouse to kill one of the corrupt cops as he's attempting to kill Detective Jack Mosley.
