Handguns

Walther PPK/S

Austin Powers (Mike Myers) uses a Walther PPK/S in .380 as his sidearm throughout the film. This is an anachronism, as the PPK/S was created as a result of the Gun Control Act of 1968 for the American market, meaning this model didn't exist in 1967. The PPK/S pistols seen in the film were custom finished in nickel instead of the standard high polished bluing.

Pearl grips were used for some scenes, but for others they were changed back to standard black plastic grips. This was probably to prevent damage to the pearl grips during stunt work. There were three identical guns used on-set - one was later donated to the Walther Museum, while the other two remain in the inventory of Independent Studio Services (which supplied the guns for the film). These guns were used on all three of the Austin Powers movies.

IMI Desert Eagle Mark VII

Austin's (Mike Myers) partner in the 1990's, Vanessa Kensington (Elizabeth Hurley) uses a Desert Eagle Mark VII. It is most notably seen when she is loading it in her and Austin's hotel room. She also uses the gun when she, Austin, and several commandos attack Dr. Evil's lair.

Colt Model 1908 Vest Pocket

Vanessa unpacks a nickel Colt Model 1908 from her suitcase in 1997. This might possibly be meant to be a stand-in for the Seecamp LWS used by her mother (see below).

Seecamp LWS

Mrs. Kensington (Mimi Rogers) uses a Seecamp LWS pistol during the 1967 sequence.

Beretta 92SB

Several of Dr. Evil's (Mike Myers) henchmen can be seen using Beretta 92SBs, denoted by their rounded trigger guard, in the final showdown scene.

Luger P08

Near the end of the film, Number Two (Robert Wagner) can seen using a Luger P08 Pistol to threaten Dr. Evil (also portrayed by Mike Myers). And when Number Two makes the mistake of sitting in a chair, Dr. Evil pushes a button that makes the chair flip backward, and launch Number Two in a fiery pit, and then Austin (also Mike Myers) picks up the Luger P08 and attempts to shoot, but misses Dr. Evil as he escapes.

Submachine Guns

Beretta M12

Many of Dr. Evil's henchmen are armed with Beretta M12 submachine guns. Austin also picks up a Beretta M12 near the end of the film, and uses it to threaten and try to capture Dr. Evil.

Rifles

FN FAL

The British soldiers seen through out the film all use FN FAL rifles. The FN FAL rifles were used as a "stand in" for the FAL's British Commonwealth "cousin", the L1A1 Self Loading Rifle. However, they would more likely be using the Enfield L85 in 1997.
