Glock 19

One of the approved firearms for the NYPD in real life, the 2nd generation Glock 19 is seen carried by NYPD detectives "Turk" (Robert De Niro) and "Rooster" (Al Pacino) as their standard sidearms. Detectives Perez (John Leguizamo) and Riley (Donnie Wahlberg) carry 3rd Gen Glocks.

Glock 26

One of the weapons approved for off-duty carry by the NYPD in real life, the subcompact Glock 26 is pulled by Detective Karen Corelli (Carla Gugino) near the end of the film, and is then given to Turk. Turk is seen using it in the ending scene at Spider's (50 Cent) club, when he holds it on before the other detectives run in.

Olympic Arms K23B

Similar to the weapon used in The Departed, Turk and Rooster use the Olympic Arms K23B while practicing their marksmanship at the range. One of them has an A2 receiver like it should, the other has an A1 receiver. You can tell it is a K23B because its handguard is far too short and too smooth to be a Colt.
