The following weapons were used in the film 22 Minutes (22 minuty):
EKOL Firat Magnum
The pirates chief Amin Nur Barre (Eebra Tooré) is the only character to carry handgun. His Beretta 92FS appears to be blank firing EKOL Firat Magnum.

Amin threatens Sanya Yezhov.
In movie trailer the inscription "Voltran P92" can be seen. Voltran is another trade mark for EKOL.
In the climactic scene Amin aims his pistol...
(Sgt. Maj.) Tikhonov (Ivan Porodnov) blocks the trigger with his battle knife.
Amin's second in command carries the M1928A1 Thompson SMG, fitted with custom folding stock. Sanya Yezhov (Makar Zaporozhskiy) manages to disarm the pirate and uses the SMG himself.

The pirate in black hood at the right holds the Thompson.
A closer view. The handguard and the cooling fins on the barrel differ from the original Thompson so this gun appears to be some kind of replica.
The folding stock is seen.
Sanya disarms the pirate. The spent brass in midair is possibly CGI.
Simonov SKS (mocked up as M14)
Several pirates carry what appears to be the M14 Rifle. Under close inspection it appears to be visually modified SKS.

The production still allows to identify the gun as visually modified SKS.
