The following weapons were used in the film The Gunman:
Jim Terrier (Sean Penn) arms himself with a 2nd generation Glock 18C which is part of a supply drop in a safe hotel where he stays in Barcelona. He is seen using both regular and extended magazines, and makes use of semi-automatic and automatic fire.

A full-size Glock is seen a few times during the film; in the holsters of Reed (Billy Bingingham) and other operatives at the beginning, holstered and wielded by several operatives during action scenes, including being holstered on Reiniger (Peter Franzén), and also briefly in the hands of Cox (Mark Rylance) in what appears to be a continuity error. It is unclear what caliber or model the pistols are.

Rifles & Carbines
Jim Terrier (Sean Penn) and his fellow team members Reed (Billy Bingingham) and Bryson (Daniel Adegboyega) are seen armed with the M4A1 Carbine at the beginning of the film. Other operatives, including Cox (Mark Rylance) can also be seen with the M4A1 in the background.

Jim checks to ensure the area is clear.
Eugene holding the FN SCAR as Jim leaves.
An operative takes up a position at the estate with an FN SCAR. Interestingly, this actor wears the same costume as the marksman seen earlier in this scene, who has what appears to be a SCAR-L slung on his back, and who disappears entirely from the film after firing several shots from his DSR-1. This would suggest that it is the same operator, although it is clearly not the same actor.
