Pistols

Beretta 92FS

The Beretta 92FS is seen used by various characters in the series including police consultant Adrian Monk (Tony Shalhoub), Captain Stottlemeyer (Ted Levine), and Lt. Randy Disher (Jason Gray-Stanford). The Beretta is Randy's sidearm throughout the first half of the series, before he swaps to using a Glock 17 sometime prior to the seventh season.

Beretta 92FS - 9x19mm.

"Lane & Westen"

Probably because of legal objections that came after the episode "Mr. Monk and the Very, Very Old Man," subsequent Beretta pistols which appeared in the series were given the fictional name "Lane & Westen." Even with the alternative name, they are clearly Beretta pistols, and in "Mr. Monk and the Captain's Wife," Evan Coker's handgun is explicitly referred to by Disher as a Beretta. To avoid confusion for any viewers, all "Lane & Westen" pistols will be referred to in this article by the "Beretta" name.

Monk's own police-issue sidearm, as seen in Season 6's "Mr. Monk Is On The Run, Part I" (S06E15) is also a Beretta 92FS described as a Lane & Westen. In "Mr. Monk Is On the Run Part 1" John Rollins (Scott Glenn) frames Monk for murder by shooting Frank Nunn with another Beretta, after replacing the barrel with the barrel from Monk's own gun, then switching them back. At times, the handgun Monk is seen handling is a Beretta 92SB as evidenced by the rounded trigger guard. Sometimes, it appears to be a Beretta 92FS.

Monk removes his Beretta from the lockbox in his bedroom. (Episode 6.15, "Mr. Monk Is On The Run, Part I). Here the handgun is a Beretta 92SB.
Seen in flashback, Sheriff John Rollins (Scott Glenn) disassembles Monk's Beretta, replacing the barrel with the one from his own identical weapon. (Episode 6.15, "Mr. Monk Is On The Run, Part I). Here, the handgun is a Beretta 92FS. In reality, it would be impossible to frame a person for murder in this way, because even if the barrels were interchangeable, the firing pin from Rollins's gun would have left a slightly different indentation on the shell casing and bullet than one left by Monk's.
Rollins draws his Beretta on Monk. (Episode 6.16, "Mr. Monk Is On The Run, Part II).

Beretta 950 Jetfire

A Beretta 950 Jetfire is used by coin dealer Jacob Posner (J.P. Manoux) in "Mr. Monk Is Up All Night" (S06E09) to kill one of the con men who ripped him off, and then take the other members of the con game hostage.

Glock 17

In Season 6's "Mr. Monk Is Up All Night" (S06E09), a fake drug dealer (Andy Mackenzie) "kills" an "undercover cop" with what appears to be a Glock pistol to con Jacob Posner (J.P. Manoux), but it is difficult to identify, since the scene where it appears is observed entirely through a window that Monk is peeking through.

A Generation 3 Glock 17 9x19mm. Note the finger grooves, thumb reliefs, and accessory rail on the frame, which differentiate it from the older model.

Ruger KP89

Tony Gamelobo (Kirk Diedrich) holds a Ruger KP89 during Monk's summation of the bank robbery in "Mr. Monk and the Buried Treasure". The appearance of the barrel and trigger guard makes it possible to identify.

SIG-Sauer P226

In the Season 6 episode "Mr. Monk and the Birds and the Bees" (S06E05), sports agent Rob Sherman (Vincent Ventresca) shoots career burglar Dewey Jordan with his own 9mm pistol, and, when his wife comes running down to investigate, shoots her dead with a .38-caliber revolver, which he then places in the dead Dewey's hand, to frame him for the murder. When reconstructing the scenario for Monk, Disher describes the pistol as a Glock, but during the scene, Sherman is actually holding what appears to be a SIG-Sauer P226 Non Gun.

The unidentified .38 revolver in his left hand is going to be Dewey's "gun", while the stainless P226 in his right hand will be the one he kills the "intruder" with. (Both guns appear to be Non Guns).

Smith & Wesson 3913

Stottlemeyer (Ted Levine) uses a Smith & Wesson 3913 as his sidearm for most of the series.

Walther PPK/S

In the Season 6 premiere "Mr. Monk and His Biggest Fan" (S06E01), John Ringel (John Mese) takes Monk and Marci Maven (Sarah Silverman) hostage with a Walther PPK. He then fires on Stottlemeyer and Disher using the gun.

Vektor CP1

In Season 6's "Mr. Monk and the Buried Treasure" (S06E06), "Happy" Jack Connolly pistol-whips his brother with what appears to be a two-tone Vektor CP1 during a flashback.

Revolvers

Smith & Wesson Model 36

In "Mr. Monk and the Daredevil" (S06E07), Joey Krenshaw (David Koechner) uses a Smith & Wesson Model 36 to force his cousin Harold to the edge of a hospital roof at gunpoint, but drops it when Natalie attacks him with a metal pipe. As Monk and Natalie try to subdue Joey, the gun gets kicked away.

In "Mr. Monk and the Man Who Shot Santa Claus" (S06E10), Monk picks up a pearl-handled Smith & Wesson Model 36 dropped by a suspect and uses it to shoot the criminal dressed as Santa Claus.

"Don't try it!" Monk aims Michael Kenworthy's (Randle Mell) Smith & Wesson Model 36 while threatening to shoot him (Episode, "Mr. Monk and the Man Who Shot Santa Claus" (S06E10)). Ultimately, he does have to shoot Kenworthy when Kenworthy comes at him with a pipe.

Rifles

M4A1

Numerous police and SWAT officers use various M4 variants. An SFPD officer holds one in Episode 6.13, "Mr. Monk and the Three Julies."

Remington 700PSS

SFPD SWAT snipers are seen using the Remington 700PSS sniper rifle, notably in Season 6, during "Mr. Monk Is on the Run, Part 1".

Shotguns

Remington 870 Field Gun

In Season 6's "Mr. Monk and the Bad Girlfriend" (S6E04), Linda Fusco (Sharon Lawrence) shoots and kills her ex-business partner with a Remington 870 Field Gun. Later, when Monk and Natalie interview Linda at her office about the murder, Monk notices a photo of a younger Linda standing by her grandfather, apparently carrying the same kind of shotgun, which is what causes him to suspect Linda of the killing.
