WARNING! THIS PAGE CONTAINS SPOILERS!
Smith & Wesson Sigma Subcompact
FBI Special Agent Art Jeffries (Bruce Willis) carries as his sidearm throughout the film the Subcompact version of the Smith & Wesson Sigma. Near the end of the film, Art (Bruce Willis) tells the FBI SWAT team leader (James MacDonald) "I got a 9mm down on the sidewalk", referring to his Sigma. This weapon is actually chambered in .380 ACP (9x17mm or 9mm Short), which would make this line of dialogue a slight inaccuracy.

A SIG-Sauer P226 is the sidearm carried by the majority of the FBI agents seen in the film.

Jordan (Chi McBride) also is seen with the handgun. The SIG also is used by Shayes (Peter Stormare) in the confrontation on the train. A SIG is also pulled by Lt. Colonel Nicholas Kudrow (Alec Baldwin) on the rooftop at the end of the film. The same gun is later used by Art.
