Colt Mk IV Series 70

A Colt MK IV Series 70 is used in the final scenes in which William 'D-Fens' Foster pursues his family and is confronted by Detective Martin Prendergast (Robert Duvall). The gun was most likely obtained from the "gun bag" of the Latino gang, however it could have also been taken from Nick the Neo-Nazi's surplus store. Notice the two tone Blued finish typical of the Colt MK IV Series 70 pistols.

Submachine Guns

Intratec TEC-9

A Intratec TEC-9 that has been converted to full auto is seen several times throughout the film.

IMI Uzi

"Gang Member One" (Agustin Rodriguez) attempts to shoot William 'D-Fens' Foster with an Uzi, but misses, and it is later picked up and used by William 'D-Fens' Foster to wound him. There are rubber bands around the grip to keep the grip safety depressed so firing could be done quicker and without a full grip on the firearm.

Shotguns

Remington 870 (sawed-off)

A cut-down Remington 870 shotgun with a cut down buttstock is used by William 'D-Fens' Foster to shoot a golf cart and accidentally threaten the caretaker of a rich doctor's house.

Heavy Weapons

M72 LAW

An M72 LAW is used by William 'D-Fens' Foster to destroy a large crane. It was obtained from the store of the Neo-Nazi surplus seller. The weapon is inaccurately portrayed as a heat-seeking guided missile, as opposed to an unguided rocket (its real-life role). Strangely, "D-Fens" manages to fire the weapon without turning off the safety or even pressing the trigger.

Bag of Guns

D-Fens picks up the gang's bag full of illegally obtained (some fully automatic) guns after the botched drive-by, and subsequently uses the weapons it contains throughout the film. The entire bag's contents are never fully seen, and only a few of the guns are seen, such as a few submachine guns, a few handguns and a sawn-off shotgun. Interestingly, he never uses the same weapon more than once.
