Pistols

Glock 17

B.A.U. (Behavior Analysis Unit) Chief SSA Aaron Hotchner (Thomas Gibson) carries a third-generation Glock 17 as his duty sidearm. A Glock 17 is also wielded by Dr. Spencer Reid (Matthew Gray Gubler) in the season's premiere episode "Mayhem" (S04E01). Season 4 marks the first time since the pilot that one of the members who previously carried a Glock discontinues doing so - In this case Reid, who only has his Glock 17 in "Mayhem", after-which he begins carrying a .357 Smith & Wesson Model 65 revolver (see below). Other FBI agents and some police officers are seen with Glock 17 pistols.

Springfield Custom Professional 1911-A1

SSA David Rossi (Joe Mantegna) carries a Springfield Custom Professional 1911-A1 throughout the series. Rossi has a background of serving in the U.S. Marine Corps, which possibly helps explain his use of a 1911-type pistol.

Revolvers

Smith & Wesson Model 65

Dr. Spencer Reid (Matthew Gray Gubler) carries as his main weapon a 3" barrel Smith & Wesson Model 65 with wood-colored grips starting in the episode "The Angel Maker" (S04E02). He carries his sidearm in a very frontal appendix-carry (as he also did with his previous Glock 17), a manner in-which a militia leader once said "The way you wear that gun - you're just asking someone to take it off of ya." In addition, he carries the double-action revolver in a holster that does not cover the trigger guard, something that is not generally advisable. There are several good shots of it in Season 4, notably at the beginning of "The Instincts" (S04E06).

Another weapon used by the cult in "Minimal Loss" (S04E03) is the AKMSU carbine, notably the leader Benjamin Cyrus (Luke Perry). Like many AKMSUs in the film industry, these guns are outfitted with Krinkov parts kits to resemble AKS-74U carbines, but have a notably more curved 7.62x39mm magazine, as opposed to the AKS-74U's relatively straighter 5.45x39mm magazine.

Submachine Guns

Heckler & Koch MP5A3

Collapsible-stock Heckler & Koch MP5A3s are also used by various SWAT teams throughout the series, notably by FBI SWAT in "Minimal Loss" during the rescue at the polygamist compound. A goof is present in that, when the weapons are fired, they sound suppressed, even though they have no suppressors mounted.
