Quantum of Solace is the 22nd entry in the official James Bond film series and the only Bond feature to be a direct sequel to its predecessor (in this case Casino Royale). In the 2008 film, James Bond (Daniel Craig) investigates the circumstances which led to the death of his love Vesper (Eva Green) and uncovers the existence of a global organization bent on controlling the world's resources. The film's cast included Olga Kurylenko and Mathieu Almaric, and returning from Casino Royale, Judi Dench, Giancarlo Giannini, and Jeffrey Wright. Quantum of Solace also marked the return of the Walther PPK as the sidearm of choice for Bond.


The following weapons were used in the film Quantum of Solace:

Handguns

Walther PPK

James Bond (Daniel Craig) now appears to carry a Walther PPK, which he carries until he loses it while freefalling from a crashing plane. He is later seen using the PPK again to threaten Yusuf at the film's conclusion. Quantum of Solace marks the return of the classic PPK as Bond's primary sidearm, after the character was seen carrying the newer Walther P99 near the end of Tomorrow Never Dies until Casino Royale (2006).

Beretta 92SB

The Carabineri officer who fires at the Alfa Romeo in the car chase scene with a Beretta 92SB. This is correct, because, while the 92FS is standard-issue for the Carabinieri, they still sometimes carry older model Beretta 92 series pistols. The corrupt Bolivian policemen hired by Dominic Greene draw Beretta 92SB pistols when they pull over Bond and Camille's Range Rover and discover a beaten Rene Mathis in the back of the truck.

SIG-Sauer P226

Mr. White's sleeper agent, Craig Mitchell (Glenn Foster), uses a SIG-Sauer P226 as his sidearm. He draws it while in Siena to shoot one of M's bodyguards and then fires on Bond and M before running off. He uses this gun for the duration of the Siena chase scene. Later in the movie, Bond is seen taking a P226 from another agent during an escape from his arrest in the hotel lift in Bolivia. He then uses it to raid the Perla de las Dunas, ultimately losing the weapon when Dominic Greene attacks him as the hotel burns.

Colt Double Eagle

During the Tosca opera, performers are seen using blank-firing Colt Double Eagle Officer's Model pistols. The serrations on the slide give it away as an Umarex made blank firing replica. They are straight up and down, and not tilted.

Glock 17

The Glock 17 are used by Greene's bodyguards as they pursue Bond during the Tosca performance. A corrupt member of Special Branch guarding Guy Haines (a member of the British Government working for Quantum) also carries a Glock. Two of his henchmen also fire at Bond with Glocks at the Perla De Las Dunas hotel.

Rohrbaugh R9s Stealth

The pistol that Camille (Olga Kurylenko) uses appears to be a Rohrbaugh R9S Stealth (the 'S' model indicates that it is the version with sights, the black finish on the slide means that it is the 'Stealth' edition). She first draws it on Bond (Daniel Craig) when he discovers that the man he was impersonating was sent to kill her, firing a shot that misses him, but forces him out of her car. She then uses it during the hotel shootout.

A Daily Mail article quotes Olga Kurylenko as saying: "I’d have preferred a bigger gun but Camille wears short skirts, so I couldn’t have a huge weapon or you’d see it poking out. I spent a lot of time training. There’s a scene where I strip down a gun, so they made me do it 500 times. By the end I could strip it in eight seconds and put it back together in 11."[1]

SIG P210

Bond acquires a SIG P210 with gold inlayed engraving. Bond gets it from General Medrano's room when he tries to rescue Camille. Seeing that Camille is paralyzed with fear from the fire that has engulfed the room, Bond prepares to kill Camille with it to put her out of her misery, but then uses it to aid their escape when Bond sees a hydrogen fuel cell that he blows up to create a route out. This SIG is actually a special of the Sig 210 commemorating the 50 years of P49 in the Swiss army (1949-1999), limited to only 500 being made.

Submachine Guns

Heckler & Koch UMP-9

The Heckler & Koch UMP-9 chambered for 9x19mm (as indicated by the curved "banana" style magazine) is the first weapon Bond uses in the film. Presumably, this is the same weapon (which was seen fitted with a suppressor) Bond uses to wound Mr. White at the end of Casino Royale. James Bond (Daniel Craig) uses the UMP (this time unsuppressed) during the pre-titles car chase to dispatch the last of Mr. White's gunmen and evade capture. The suppressed version of the Heckler & Koch UMP-9 is seen held by Daniel Craig in promotional material for the film, but is not seen suppressed in the film.

Heckler & Koch MP5K-PDW

General Medrano's men carry Heckler & Koch MP5K-PDWs during the boat chase. CIA officers are also seen using suppressed versions. The stocks of these MP5K's appear to be UMP-style instead of the PDW folding stock.

IMI Uzi

Dock guards in Haiti carry the Uzi submachine gun. This is an original full size model, judging by the stock and handgrips, although curiously the Uzi that the gate guard is carrying lacks the folding stock.

Rifles

Heckler & Koch G36C

The gunner in the first Alfa Romeo sedan during the pre-title Aston Martin chase uses a Heckler & Koch G36C assault rifle, scoring several ineffective hits on Bond's DBS and a more damaging shot on a box truck's tires. Many of Greene's henchman can be seen with a G36C during the boat chase scene.

SIG SG 542

During the boat chase in Haiti, one of General Medrano's men uses a SIG SG 542 assault rifle. When Bond smashes into their boat with his own, the gunner is seen either clearing a jam or attempting to reload the rifle and is unable to get it operational again before Bond makes a second pass and destroys the boat's outboard engine. A Bolivian soldier guarding the Perla Duna hotel garage is briefly seen with an SIG SG 542 slung over his shoulder.

Machine Guns

FN Minimi Paratrooper

An FN Minimi (Paratrooper model with retractable stock) is used by the gunner in the second Alfa Romeo chasing Bond in Siena, Italy. He also uses it to dispatch a Carabinieri SUV that took up pursuit behind them.
