CSI: NY - Season 3
Work In Progress
The following weapons were used in Season 3 of the television series CSI: NY:
Two of the CSIs use 2nd Generation Glock 17 pistols throughout the series, notably Det. Mac Taylor (Gary Sinise) and Det. Danny Messer (Carmine Giovinazzo) carry Glock 17s. Chief Brigham Sinclair (Mykelti Williamson) is seen with one in a few episodes. Some of the uniformed NYPD Officers, as well as random crooks and other characters use Glock 17s as well. In recent episodes, 3rd Generation Glock 17s begin to make appearances. The Glock Model 19 is the only Glock pistol authorized for carry by the NYPD for its officers. This error is often made by television shows and movies.
In "Snow Day" (S3E24), some of the mobsters are armed with Beretta 92FS pistols as their weapons of choice. Mac takes one off a dead mobster for his own use (as he left his Glock at his desk.), later unloading the pistol and emptying the chamber after the leader is killed. A blank-firing Beretta 92FS appears in the episode "Fare Game", identified as the murder weapon.
In "Silent Night" (S3E12), A Desert Eagle is seen being fired into a ballistics tank.
Smith & Wesson Model 36
In "Raising Shane" (S3E11), a robber uses a Smith & Wesson Model 36 to rob a bar and then fatally shoot the bartender, the whole time impersonating Dr. Sheldon Hawkes (Hill Harper). It is later discovered that this is a plot by Shane Casey (Edward Furlong) to force Detective Messer to exonerate his brother Ian Casey (Jeremy Nichols) of a similar crime. Shane himself uses the revolver to kill the robber and then brandishes it several times in confrontations with Mac and Messer, ultimately being talked into surrendering the weapon when Messer is able to prove that his brother was indeed guilty of his crime. Detective Messer can also be seen carrying one as a backup weapon in an ankle holster in some episodes.
Smith & Wesson Model 19 Snub Nose
In "Cold Reveal" (S3E22), a Smith & Wesson Model 19 Snub Nose is used by Gene Hartley (Bruce Nozick), a grief-stricken relative of one of the victims killed by Clay Dobson (Joey Lawrence). Hartley holds the revolver on Mac when it's believed Mac murdered Dobson while trying to arrest him, but Mac is able to disarm him without a shot being fired when the man is overcome by grief and collapses.
Some N.Y.P.D. ESU officers can be seen armed with M4A1 carbines as well as the typical H&K MP5A3s. Det. Bonasera uses one with an M68 Aimpoint Scope and Surefire M900 Weaponlight foregrip in "Snow Day" (S3E24), but never fires it.
In "Snow Day" (S3E24), drug dealers (later revealed to be ex-IRA insurgents) can be seen engaging N.Y.P.D. SWAT officers in a shootout armed with AKM assault rifles, wounding one officer in the shoulder during the firefight. They can again be seen armed with them when they take Messer and Adam Ross (A.J. Buckley) hostage while they're working the crime scene, using them to beat Messer several times. AKMs are later seen in the episode "Pay Up", first in the hands of a sniper who fires at Mac, Messer, and Flack, but fails to hit them. Another AKM is seen pointed at Connor Dunbrook in a video to his father stating demands.
Heckler & Koch MP5K
In "Snow Day" (S3E24), mobsters can be seen armed with Heckler & Koch MP5Ks during the initial SWAT raid and again when attempting to steal back their drugs and weapons from the crime lab, one of them accidentally shooting one of his own comrades with one while pursuing Mac. Det. Dr. Sheldon Hawkes (Hill Harper) commandeers one from a mobster and uses it for the remainder of the episode. Some of the MP5Ks seen in the episode (usually in non-firing scenes) are Tokyo Marui plastic airsoft replicas with the Navy-style lower receiver; the real MP5Ks in the episode (which fire blanks) are the ones that have the SEF lower receivers.
Heckler & Koch MP5A3
Some ESU officers are armed with the Heckler & Koch MP5A3.
A Mossberg 500 shotgun is seen as another shotgun tested by Mac in "Silent Night" (S3E12).
A cutdown and pistol-gripped Mossberg 500 is the final shotgun tested by Mac in "Silent Night" (S3E12). A gunman also holds a similar shotgun in the episode.
In "Snow Day" (S3E24), Detective Flack can be seen armed with a Remington 870 shotgun fitted with a Surefire dedicated forend weaponlight and spare shotshell holder on the side of the receiver, using it to kill a mobster during the opening warehouse raid and again at the end of the episode when arresting the other mobsters at the crime lab.
Smith & Wesson 3000
Mac uses what appears to be a Smith & Wesson 3000 Shotgun to test out its sound vibrations in "Silent Night" (S3E12).
In "Snow Day" (S3E24), a Barrett M82A1 sniper rifle is found among the illegal weapons and large amounts of cocaine in a warehouse used by Irish mobsters. Sheldon (Hill Harper) is seen examining the rifle in the lab. The mobsters later attempt to steal it and the other weapons and drugs back when they raid the crime lab disguised as utility workers during a fake gas leak, using the powerful rifle to shoot open the vault containing their cocaine.
