Monk - Season 7 (2008-2009)

The following weapons were seen in Season 7 of the television series Monk:

Contents


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"

Possibly due to 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.

In Season 7's "Mr. Monk's Other Brother" (S07E10), Adrian's half-brother Jack, Jr. (Steve Zahn) "borrows" Monk's pistol and uses it to return fire when prison guard Daniel Reese (Titus Welliver) opens fire on them.

Jack Monk, Jr. (Steve Zahn) breaks cover and fires on Daniel Reese's (Titus Welliver) rooftop position with Adrian's gun. (Episode 7.10, "Mr. Monk's Other Brother).
Monk: "That's my gun!"
Jack, Jr.: "What...? Oh, yeah! No, I borrowed it - and be glad I did!" Jack pauses during the firefight with Reese. Natalie in the foreground is obviously unaccustomed to being caught in the middle of a shootout. Due to continuity error, there is a point in this scene where Jack runs out of ammo, and suddenly is able to fire with an empty magazine. (Episode 7.10, "Mr. Monk's Other Brother").

Colt Double Eagle

A Colt Double Eagle is seen in the hands of the leader of a gang to threaten Karl Torini (Steve Valentine) in Season 7's "Mr. Monk and the Magician" (S07E15) after Torini makes the ringleader's watch disappear.

John Keyes (Marcus Giamatti) uses this type of pistol in "Mr. Monk and the Lady Next Door" (S07E12) when robbing a jewelry store, and executes the manager when he recognizes Keyes.

Colt Double Eagle .45 ACP
The drug dealer holds a Colt Double Eagle on Karl Torini (Steve Valentine) and threatens to make a bullet disappear into Torini's skull if he doesn't return his watch. Torini saves himself by motioning to one of the ringleader's comrades. (Episode S07E15, "Mr. Monk and the Magician").
John Keyes (Marcus Giamatti) holds a Colt Double Eagle during the jewelry store robbery. ("Mr. Monk and the Lady Next Door," SE7E12).
When the store manager recognizes Keyes (despite the fact that Keyes is wearing a ski mask), Keyes takes off his mask, admitting that he doesn't feel comfortable wearing it. Unfortunately, this means he will have to kill the manager.

Glock 17

In the seventh and eighth seasons, Randy uses a third generation Glock 17 as his sidearm.

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.
Bursting in on the first class box where the Iceman is trying to shoot, Disher (Jason Gray-Stanford) draws his Glock 17 and Stottlemeyer (Ted Levine) his S&W 3913, respectively (Episode 7.04, "Mr. Monk Takes A Punch").
Believing that this egg-eating robot has become sentient, Randy draws his Glock and fires at it. The bullets only ricochet off the metal. Note that his gun has clearly sustained what is called a stovepipe jam (when a shell casing fails to eject). (Episode 7.12, "Mr. Monk and the Lady Next Door").


SIG-Sauer P239

In "Mr. Monk Buys a House" (S07E01), money-seeking handyman "Honest" Jake Phillips (Brad Garrett) takes Monk and Natalie hostage with a SIG-Sauer P239.

SIG-Sauer P239 - 9x19mm.
"Mr. Monk, I've got a confession to make: they really don't call me 'Honest' Jake." Jake Phillips (Brad Garrett) uses a SIG-Sauer P239 to demonstrate to Monk and Natalie the accuracy of his nickname.
"And on second thought, I'm gonna retire." Jake pulls his P239 on Monk and Natalie and prepares to finish them off.

Smith & Wesson 3913

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

Walther P38

In "Mr. Monk is Underwater" (S07E05), Monk borrows a sidearm from Steven Albright (Casper Van Dien) to test whether a plastic bottle found at a crime scene could be utilized as a silencer, screwed on with surgical tape. The gun Albright hands to Monk is a Walther P38, despite the fact that the Beretta 92FS is the normal sidearm issued to the U.S. Navy. The Walther was probably used because its long, thin barrel makes it easy for Monk to make the experiment. In the flashback summation at the end of the episode, Commander Whitaker (William Atherton) is seen using a Walther P38 equipped with an improvised suppressor made from a cream soda bottle screwed on to the barrel and tightened with surgical tape.

Walther P38.
Monk fits a bottle onto the barrel of Albright's unloaded Walther P38, and then tightens it with surgical tape. The U.S. Navy actually uses Berettas as their choice of sidearms; the Walther seen here was probably used because of the thin barrel. It should also be noted that in reality, being the boat's medical officer, Albright would most likely never carry a gun in his duties. (Episode "Mr. Monk is Underwater" (S07E05))
In flashback, Commander Whitaker (William Atherton) forces Lt. Jason Pierce to drink a bottle of vodka at gunpoint, and then executes him. Presumably he uses a cream soda bottle instead of an ordinary suppressor because he couldn't possess such a thing on a submarine without drawing attention to himself.

Walther PPK/S

In Season 7's "Mr. Monk on Wheels," (S07E11) criminal John Kuramoto (Alain Uy) shoots Monk in his left leg with a Walther PPK/S. Later in the episode, Sarah Longson (Pamela Adlon), his employer, turns on him and kills him with his own weapon. The first good look at the gun comes at the end when Natalie (Traylor Howard) chases Sarah out of a bioengineering lab, and she pulls the gun out of her purse. After a struggle for the gun, it is knocked away and Natalie is able to grab it. She appears to be very inexperienced with firearms, as she unintentionally discharges a bullet into Monk's right leg when she turns around. This completely contradicts the fact that dialogue in "Mr. Monk and the Three Julies" (S06E13) suggests Natalie to have experienced marksmanship.

Submachine Guns

Heckler & Koch MP5A3

The Heckler & Koch MP5A3 is used by SFPD SWAT officers, fitted with Navy trigger groups, Surefire dedicated forend weaponlights, and an unknown scope. The SWAT teams appear in several episodes, including "Mr. Monk and the Candidate, Part II" (S01E02) and Season Three's "Mr. Monk and the Kid" (S03E16). In "Mr. Monk's 100th Case" (S07E07), the H&K MP5A3 is seen being utilized by SWAT officers during a raid on a photography studio and later on a motel room.

Rifles

AK-47

The AK-47 is also seen in the hands of the drug dealers that Torini meets in the opening of "Mr. Monk and the Magician" (S07E15).

Ruger Model 77

In Season 7's "Mr. Monk Takes A Punch" (S07E04), professional killer Charles Bach, or "The Iceman" (Jon Sklaroff) prepares a takedown and probably customized version of this rifle equipped with a bipod in his attempt to assassinate boxer Ray Regis (James Lesure) during a title bout. The inserts on the pistol grip section of the stock are the same as the Ruger M77 "paddlestock." Then again, the Iceman is a professional assassin, so it is not hard to consider that he might have custom built this rifle so that the police could not trace the weapon. It appears to be the same All-Weather Mark II rifle used in The Kill Point.

Ruger Mini-14

In the Season Seven episode "Mr. Monk's Other Brother" (S07E10) prison guard Daniel Reese (Titus Welliver) fires a semi-automatic Ruger Mini-14 from his rooftop at Adrian, Natalie and Jack Monk, Jr. (Steve Zahn), who returns fire with Monk's own "borrowed" pistol. During Jack's staged escape seen in flashback, Reese opens fire on Jack from the guard tower with what appears to be the same semiautomatic rifle. For a prison guard, he has very bad marksmanship because we see scenes of him firing on but missing targets twice during the episode.

Reese (Titus Welliver) opens fire on Monk, Natalie, and Jack, Jr. Note how the squibs on the pavement are going off far below the trajectory of the barrel. Based on the trajectory, the squibs should actually be somewhere closer to Natalie's right foot. (Episode 7.10, "Mr. Monk's Other Brother).
Reese raises his Ruger as he closes in for the kill. Adrian and Natalie are hidden behind this log pile. (Episode 7.10, "Mr. Monk's Other Brother).
Reese looks up from the sights of his rifle after failing to hit the escaping Jack Monk, Jr. (Steve Zahn) (Episode 7.10, "Mr. Monk's Other Brother).

Shotguns

Mossberg 500

The Mossberg 500 shotgun fitted with a Surefire tactical light is often seen carried by SFPD SWAT officers.
