The Living Daylights is the 15th installment in the official James Bond film series and marked the debut of Timothy Dalton in the role of Agent 007. The 1987 sequel finds Bond involved with the girlfriend of a Soviet defector who claims to have evidence of a conspiracy to reignite tensions between the spy communities of the Soviet Union and the Western world. The cast included Jeroen Krabbé, Maryam D'Abo, Art Malik, John Rhys-Davies.
The following weapons were used in the film The Living Daylights:
WARNING! THIS PAGE CONTAINS SPOILERS!
James Bond (Timothy Dalton) carries his standard .32-caliber (7.65mm) Walther PPK, both suppressed and unsuppressed. He draws it at the amusement park in Vienna, unintentionally scaring a mother and her child. He most notably uses it to intimidate and, later, "assassinate" Gen. Pushkin in Tangier. He later uses it to try and kill Brad Whittaker, but the rounds fail to penetrate Whittaker's body armor. After Bond fires 8 shots at Whittaker, Whittaker responds, "You've had your eight, now have my eighty!" This brown-gripped PPK appears to be the same one seen used in the next film Licence To Kill.

Bond enters Whitaker's home with his PPK drawn.
Pushkin's KGB bodyguard (Alan Talbot) carries a Beretta pistol in a shoulder holster, most likely a Beretta Cheetah. It is possible this was supposed to stand in for the Makarov PM, a more likely weapon to be found in the hands of a KGB bodyguard.

Some policemen that chase Bond in Tangier have CZ 83 pistols. Many of the Soviet officers during the Afghan airstrip shootout also carry CZs. Necros (Andreas Wisniewski) uses one to attempt to assassinate Pushkin in Tangier. As with the Beretta carried by Pushkin's bodyguard, it is possible this was supposed to stand in for the Makarov PM, which would have been standard Soviet issue at the time.

Colonel Feyador draws his CZ 83, but Koskov tells him not to shoot and damage the plane.
Browning BDA (Umarex blank gun replica)
The female CIA agent sent by Felix Leiter (John Terry) uses a Browning BDA to convince Bond to go with them. The markings on the BDA reveal that this is actually a Umarex GPDA blank gun.

The CIA agent keeps her Browning BDA pistol trained on Bond. Here you can faintly see the markings on the slide, which give away that this is a Umarex BDA9 replica. Particularly the "FN" marking can be noticed near the barrel-wise end of the slide, which a real BDA doesn't have.
In a tribute to Bond's sidearm in the original novels (up until Dr. No), a .25-caliber Beretta 418 is silhouetted during the opening credits.

Star Model B
One of the Czechoslovaks accompanying the Soviets chasing Bond and Kara near the Austrian border fires a Star Model B at them. As with the Beretta and CZ 83s seen elsewhere in the film, it is possible the gun is standing in for a much more probable weapon that would be found in Soviet hands - the Tokarev TT-33, to which it bears a passing resemblance.

Kara Milovy (Maryam D'Abo) uses a Winchester Model 70 to "shoot" at Gen. Koskov during his defection. Bond damages the rifle with a shot from the WA 2000.

Rifles / Carbines
Many of the Soviet and Czechoslovak soldiers, as well as the Mujahideen use milled-receiver AK-47 assault rifles, most likely Chinese Poly Tech Legend copies. Kamran Shah (Art Malik), Bond and Kara's Mujahideen friend, wields an AK-47 during the battle with the Soviets. Kara Milovy (Maryam D'Abo) grabs Kamran's AK-47 to go off and help Bond. It is worth noting that the use of AK-derivative by Czechoslovak forces is a mistake as Czechoslovakia was the only Warsaw Pact member that used a standard assault rifle of its own design (Samopal vz. 58).

It wasn't until 1988 that toy weapons were required to have a blaze orange cap on the barrel.)

Colt Commando M733
A Colt Model 733 is used by Brad Whitaker (Joe Don Baker) at his home, fitted with a transparent bullet-resistant shield. At one point, Whitaker erroneously states the weapon has an eighty-round capacity, which would be impossible given that it is loaded with a 30-round STANAG magazine.
Colt Model 733 "M16A2 Commando" - 5.56x45mm. This particular rifle has an A2 lower, an A1E1 upper (forward assist and case deflector with A1 sights as found on Canadian Colts), and a coated aluminum stock.

Heckler & Koch MP5K (modified)
Whitaker shows Pushkin a modified Heckler & Koch MP5K made to look as if it has grenade launching capabilities, telling him he needs the modern equivalent of a Maxim, a "3rd generation ... laser-sighting, short-barreled machine pistol". It has an SEF trigger group.

During the car chase, one of the vehicles is mounted with an MG3 light machine gun, the 7.62x51mm derivative of an MG42. The use of the MG3 by Bratislava Soviets is a mistake; The MG3 was a weapon used by NATO and was never used by the Czechoslovak Army.
