The following weapons were used in Season 7 of the television series Archer:
The Walther PPK continues to be the primary weapon of Sterling Archer, as well as being seen in the hands of various other characters. According to a DVD special feature and the companion book How to Archer: The Ultimate Guide to Espionage and Style and Women and Also Cocktails Ever Written, Archer's PPK is chambered in .32 ACP. Malory Archer also carries a PPK as her backup weapon.

In Episode 1, Detective Diedrich (Keegan-Michael Key
) holds up a Walther PPK he found a crime scene.

Note unlike previous seasons after Cyril wasted all of Archer's ammo, the slide of the PPK locked back.

Desert Eagle Mark I
Various characters are seen carrying Desert Eagle Mark I handguns chambered in .357 Magnum, identifiable by the "tear-drop" safety. Alan Shapiro carries one as his primary weapon, both seen with and without a suppressor.

Trent Whitney briefly points his Desert Eagle at Archer and Cyril.
"First off, not a Smith and Wesson..." Archer holding Shapiro's Desert Eagle after calling it a "Smith and Wesson," hoping to sound more intimidating. Shapiro is most likely referencing Dirty Harry
's .44 Magnum, which would in fact be more powerful than his Desert Eagle, as the Mark I was only chambered for .357 Magnum.
Colt Gold Cup National Match
Ivy (Jon Daly) uses a Colt Gold Cup National Match fitted with custom target grips in "Deadly Prep" (S07E03). It can be noted as a CGNM by the adjustable target sights.
Colt Gold Cup National Match (Mark IV, Series 70) - .45 ACP.
Several characters are seen armed with nickel-plated M1911A1s, including Slater (Christian Slater) and several background characters. Ray Gillette continues to carry two custom engraved M1911s, named Liza and Barbra.

Detective's Diedrich and Harris both carry Smith & Wesson Model 15s, which were issued to the LAPD from 1970 to 1988 (the supposive time frame of Archer). Diedrich carries one with a regular four inch barrel while Harris carries a snub-nose model, fitted with a two inch barrel.

LAPD SWAT officers carry Mossberg 590 shotguns fitted with ghost ring aperture sights and bayonet lugs. Strangely, despite having aperture rear sights, they appear to have bead front sights.

Considering they are explicitly firing beanbags, the yellow bands around the muzzles are likely to indicate the use of less-lethal munition.

One of Shapiro's guards threw a M67 hand grenade at Archer and company.
