Unidentified

This article currently has one or more unidentified weapons.
If you can help identify any of the weapons labelled "unknown," please do so.

NOTE: On occasion Mythbusters shows clips from movies pertaining to the myth they are trying to replicate. Sometimes those clips contain guns. I am NOT including those clips here. If you want to check those guns, look on the page for the particular movie that they mentioned.

The following guns were used in the television show Mythbusters.

Mythbusters (2003-Present)

Handguns

Beretta 92F

In "Hollywood Gunslingers" (S10E12), when talking about quick-draws, Tori is seen with a Beretta 92F. Note that you can see "92F" stamped on the slide so its not a "92FS".

Glock 22

In "Coffin Punch" (S06E19), Adam uses a Glock 22 to test to see if police badges can stop bullets. When Jamie explains the original myth, he said that a police badge stopped a .40 caliber bullet.

Heckler & Koch USP Tactical

In "Blow Your Own Sail" (S09E06), the Heckler & Koch USP Tactical is shown when testing the myth of Hollywood sound effects, testing a .45 ACP pistol un-suppressed. Oddly, the footage of the USP being fired was never shown. Instead, footage of a Walther P22 was shown, labeled incorrectly as a .45.

In "Inverted Underwater Car" (S08E19), Grant , Tori and Kari use the SIG-Sauer P239 to test whether shooting through milk will prevent the muzzle flash of a gun from igniting a room full of gas. This is based on the movie Kiss The Girls where Morgan Freeman's character does just that.
In "Spy Car 2" (S09E07), Tori is seen holding the SIG-Sauer P239 when preparing for the myth that a bullet fired into ice will spin like a top. For the actual testing of the myth, they used a Glock.

Walther P22

In "Blow Your Own Sail" (S09E06), Adam uses an Walther P22 with a threaded barrel to test the myth of Hollywood sound effects. Hilariously, it is referred to as a .45 caliber rather than the correct .22 caliber in the graphics.

In "Paper Armor" (S09E12), Adam uses a Smith & Wesson Model 29 to conduct underwater shock wave tests. It has been heavily modified by removing the rear sight(the square cut out for the sights is visible on the top corner of the frame), shortening the barrel and attaching a vertical tube to the muzzle. The gun fires blanks which send a shock wave both up and down.

Adam explains how the gun will work. It appears that this apparatus is made from a Model 29 with a 6" or longer barrel, as no front sight ramp is visible on the portion of the barrel that remains.

Shotguns

10 Gauge Double Barreled Shotgun

In "More Myths Revisited" (S05E06), an antique 10 Gauge Double Barreled Shotgun is used to re-test the myth that if you plug the barrel of a gun with your finger, it will explode. They used an antique that was made in 1877 using the old Damascus technique of heating narrow strips of metal then shaping them around a mandrel. The theory was that this older, and definitely weaker barrel might fail when the barrel was plugged.

The 10 Gauge is prepped for testing. (S05E06)
While it didn't do a full banana-peel as the myth called for, the barrel still failed pretty badly. (S05E06)

12 Gauge Double Barreled Shotgun

In "Myths Reopened" (S04E08), Grant, Tori and Kari use a 12 Gauge Double Barreled Shotgun to test the lethality of firing a gun underwater. Turns out that a shotgun explodes when fired underwater.
In "Western Myths" (S05E10), a 12 Gauge Double Barreled Shotgun is used to test the myth that you can shoot a cowboy's hat off.
