Almost Human is a 2013 science fiction television series executive-produced by J.J. Abrams. Set in 2048, the series follows LAPD detective John Kennex (Karl Urban), who has developed strong hatred for robots after losing his partner and being left for dead in an ambush by an LAPD combat android. Per the LAPD's requirements that all human officers are required to have a synthetic partner, Kennex is paired up with an older model android DRN, or Dorian (Michael Ealy), that is capable of human emotions and feelings.
The following weapons appear in the series Almost Human:
WARNING! THIS PAGE CONTAINS SPOILERS!
"Timecop Beretta" (Taurus PT99)
Reinhardt (Tim Kelleher) uses a dressed-up Taurus PT99 during the pilot episode (S01E01). This pistol is a modified "Timecop Beretta" (as the name suggests, the "Timecop Beretta" was originally built up for the 1994 sci-fi film Timecop.) The pistol has been modified slightly to have a more open-ended front than the ones seen in such previously Canadian-produced sci-fi series as Stargate: Atlantis and Sliders and this particular modification was previously the firing hero gun for the David Hasselhoff television movie Nick Fury: Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D.

Starting in "Skin" (S01E02), LAPD detective John Kennex (Karl Urban) carries as his sidearm a Taurus PT92AF dressed up in a futuristic shell. Although it is similar to the "Timecop Beretta", it is a new design. Urban liked the look of Reinhardt's pistol and asked for something similar. A cavity was built into the shell to accommodate a laser module. (The base pistol does not have an accessory rail.) The original grip panels were rosewood; Urban requested something darker, so dark walnut was used.
Det. Kennex holds his Taurus on a sexbot in "Skin" (S01E02). In this screenshot, the frame-mounted slide catch is visible, which confirms the pistol inside the shell is a Taurus.

LAPD Detective John Kennex (Karl Urban) and android Dorian (Michael Ealy), and Detective Richard Paul (Michael Irby) carry slightly customized Zoraki 925s fitted with laser sights as their sidearms in the series, altough Kennex switches to the modified Taurus PT92AF in "Skin" (S01E02). The Zoraki is the primary firearm for the LAPD in the series, and is used by several officers in the series. LAPD Captain Alexio Barros (Benito Martinez) uses a Zoraki 925 in "The Bends" (S01E04). Det. Kennex also uses Barros' Zoraki after a scuffle in the same episode. It appears in the hands of hacker Emily Wilson in "Disrupt" (S01E11) after taking it from a downed Synturion android.

Glock 17 in APS Carbine stock
Reinhardt (Tim Kelleher) and some of the InSyndicate thugs use a Glock 17 fitted into a carbine stock system during the pilot. On the surface it resembles a CAA Tactical RONI stock, however it is actually a modified APS Carbine stock which is a copy of the RON-G1 intended for Airsoft pistols. The weapon is also fitted with a small jar-like device on the forearm, and the weapon shoots plastic webs that can cover a person's face.

In a continuity error the pistol carried by Danica (Gina Carano) in "Unbound" (S01E06) briefly changes to a KJW MP-05 Hi-Capa (an Airsoft M1911 replica) when she shoots a taxi driver. This was most likely done for safety reasons due to the short range at which the pistol is fired.

What appears to be a Beretta 93R is used by Gabe Dunbar (Shaun Smyth) when his hideout gets raided by the LAPD in "Straw Man" (S01E13).

LAPD MX combat androids and LAPD officers use FN P90 submachine guns fitted with extended threaded barrel suppressors, forward rail systems (RIS) with tactical laser-pointers and weapon lights, receiver top covers, and Magpul AFG grips throughout the series.

LAPD Detective Richard Paul (Michael Irby) picks up and uses a P90 during a shootout in the pilot episode.
The P90s--real firing models with choked barrels to cycle blanks--were originally built up for Underworld: Awakening. The front section shells and grenade launchers were removed but the cosmetic covers over the magazines (marked "POLICE") remain, and other accessories were added.
