Goldfinger is the third entry in the official James Bond film series. The 1964 sequel follows Bond (Sean Connery) as he assigned to investigate the smuggling of Nazi gold. In the course of his investigation, he stumbles upon a plot to destroy the US gold reserves in Fort Knox that appears to be orchestrated by a wealthy magnate who is obsessed with owning the precious metal. The film was the first blockbuster in the series and would set the tone for the majority of the films to follow.

The following weapons were used in the film Goldfinger:

Contents



Handguns

Walther PPK

James Bond (Sean Connery) keeps a brown-gripped .32 ACP Walther PPK in his shoulder holster, seen most prominently when a Cuban hitman, "Capungo" (Alf Joint, one of Sean Connery's stunt doubles), tries to grab it during the pre-credits sequence. The film marks the first time Bond does not fire a single round from his trademark weapon. Trivia: Capungo is not the name - it's frequently used as a synonym for the word "hitman" in Spanish-speaking countries, particularly Mexico and Cuba. In the original novel by Ian Fleming Capungo was killed by Bond by just a single kick to his neck.

Luger P08

Walther P38

When Bond (Sean Connery) first engages Goldfinger's men in a gunfight outside Goldfinger's Geneva factory, he fires a Walther P38 at them rather than his usual PPK, presumably from the under seat concealed firearm drawer (seen in publicity stills and films). Several of Auric Goldfinger's guards can be seen carrying Walther P38s as their sidearms, one of which Bond also manages to commandeer before having to hand it back over to Pussy Galore (Honor Blackman).

Smith & Wesson Model 36

One of the Goldfinger's guards who sits next to Bond in his Aston Martin holds a Smith & Wesson Model 36 on him. In a continuity error, it later becomes a Walther P38.

Smith & Wesson Model 22

Pussy Galore (Honor Blackman) is seen holding a Smith & Wesson Model 22 revolver while flying to the United States. Bond correctly identifies the revolver as a "Smith & Wesson .45" and adds that a bullet fired from the gun would pass through him and the plane.

Colt Official Police

During the raid on Fort Knox, Auric Goldfinger (Gert Fröbe) can be seen carrying a Colt Official Police revolver with a gold-plated finish and ivory grips while disguised as a U.S. Army Colonel, even using it to shoot at Mr. Ling (Burt Kwouk). Note: In the novel, Goldfinger uses a Gold-plated Colt Model 1908 Vest Pocket and killed his victims with one shot through the right eye.

M1911A1

Oddjob (Harold Sakata) uses a suppressed M1911A1 to kill Solo (Martin Benson) while driving him to the airport in the Lincoln. This pistol is also used by US Army soldiers.

Submachine Guns

MP40

Goldfinger's guards carry MP40s, using them in most major gunfights of the film, with even Goldfinger himself using one briefly during the Fort Knox raid. This gun is also being tested on a bulletproof vest in Q's lab. The old lady working as a guard to Goldfinger's facility also carries an MP40.

M1928 Thompson

Some of the U.S. Army soldiers at Fort Knox attack Goldfinger and his men with older M1928 Thompsons with drum magazines and vertical foregrips. Note the switch from M14s (above, likely filmed in U.S.) to WWII era Thompson and carbines, most likely because the Fort Knox set was built in England and at the time (1964) M14s weren't readily available to UK armourers.

U.S. Army soldiers can be seen carrying M1 Carbines during the gas raid on Fort Knox. They are WWII Carbines judging by the darker wood walnut stock and lack of a bayonet lug.

Rifles

Armalite AR-7

Tilly Masterson (Tania Mallet) is seen twice using a scoped Armalite AR-7 rifle to try to shoot Goldfinger. The same model rifle was used by Bond in From Russia with Love.

Gun Barrel opening sequence

This film was the third and last in which Bond was played not by the main actor in the Gun Barrel sequence; again, it was stuntman Bob Simmons. The sequence is slightly different from what was seen in Dr. No and From Russia with Love but it utilized the same Smith & Wesson revolver barrel.

The last time we can see Bob Simmons as James Bond killing someone with his Walther PPK, but not the last role for Bob Simmons in Bond movies - he also appeared in several cameos later. For example he also appeared as one of the U.S. Army soldiers with M1928 Thompson in this movie.

"The Guns of James Bond" Featurette

A short clip originally shown on the BBC and later put into the ultimate edition DVD special features of Dr. No titled "The Guns of James Bond," shows Sean Connery on the set of Goldfinger along with Geoffrey Boothroyd, a Scottish firearms expert who collaborated with Ian Fleming during the novels and convinced Fleming to make the switch from the Beretta to the Walther PPK. Fleming as a token of appreciation, had Major Boothroyd or "Q" named after him.

Ruger Blackhawk

After shooting both pistols, Boothroyd shoots his personal favorite, the Ruger Blackhawk in .44 Magnum and describes it as a "man sized gun" but being impractical for Bond due to the barrel length and large recoil.
