Handguns

"Lawgiver II"

The primary weapon of a Judge in the film is the "Lawgiver II". It's seen primarily used by Judge Dredd (Sylvester Stallone), Judge Hershey (Diane Lane), and Rico (Armand Assante). According to an article from Beretta World, the Lawgiver II is in reality a Beretta 92FS with the futuristic casing built around it. In the film, the gun has "mission-variable ammunition", the capabilities of which include rapid-fire, armor-piercing, grenade launcher, signal flare launcher, and a special high-powered dual round known as the "double-whammy". It also has a security feature which allows only a Judge to operate the gun.

There were 6 practical firing Lawgivers, all with slight variations in their casings. There were 2 sfx "Double Whammy" Lawgivers designated as H1 and H2. Both guns had motorized barrels which were servo operated by radio control by off-stage technicians. Sensors built into the front and rear of the Beretta's external magazine well caused the lit casing elements to operate. By releasing the rear sensor and squeezing the front the side elements go out and the red elements on each side of the casing come on... 'signal flare', 'rapid fire' etc. None of the practical live fire Lawgivers had the Double Whammy rubber scope with glass lens. The base practical-fire guns would later be re-used (in altered form) in Blade II.

Security Rifle

The guards use these futuristic rifles when confronting Pa Angel after he's captured Dredd and Herman. From closer examination of the rifle's ejection port, it appears that the rifles are built around an AK-type rifle.
