Run, Lola, Run (aka Lola Rennt
The American release posters of this German film were pretty mundane compared to the excellent original European posters for the film, called Lola Rennt
in German, which literally translates to "Lola runs".
The following guns were used in the movie Run, Lola, Run (Lola rennt):
Manni (Moritz Bleibtreu) carries a Walther PPK as his personal sidearm, and uses it in the grocery store robbery during the "first run".
Walther PPK stainless - .380 ACP
Manni sees the security guard holding his Walther P88 on him.
Manni surrenders to the security guard, before Lola takes his weapon. In this scene, he notably de-cocks the weapon into double action mode, when it was previously in single action because he fired it into the air. Curiously, instead of using the decocking lever, he pulls the trigger and lowers the hammer, like one would do with a revolver.
A Walther PP is the sidearm of the bank security guard, Herr Schuster (Armin Rohde). Lola (Franka Potente) takes it from him, in order to rob the bank in the "second run". She remembers from the "first run" that Manni taught her to take the safety off (on the Walther P88). After Herr Schuster tells her to give it up, as she is untrained, she flicks off the safety and fires it at the wall behind him.
Post-war Walther PP Pistol - .32 ACP.

Lola shoots the lock with the Walther PP. Note:
The slide locks back, indicating that the pistol is out of ammunition, on the first shot of two shots she fires at the lock.
Walther P88 Compact (Umarex Replica)
The security guard at the grocery store carries a Walther P88 Compact which is actually an Umarex 8mm Blank firing only replica of the Walther P88C. Lola (Franka Potente) later picks up the same pistol and wields it.
Umarex™ 8mm theatrical blank firing replica Walther P88C, similar to the Umarex model used in the film. The Real 9mm Walther P88C was never used, only the non live fire replica, built in Spain.
Lola (Franka Potente
) clubs the security guard over the head with a heavy bag.
After it skids over to him, Manni kicks the P88 to Lola, who stops it with her boot.
Lola then picks up the Walther P88 Compact.
Here the name of the pistol can clearly be seen on the slide.
Lola (Franka Potente
) points the Walther P88 Compact at the security guard before Manni informs her that the safety is on. Clearly, the guard doesn't know his own weapon, because facing down an armed criminal with the safety activated is rather risky...
The SIG-Sauer P225 (as the "P6") was the standard weapon of the German Federal Border Force (the predecessor of the German Federal Police) as well as various state police forces at the time the movie was made.
SIG-Sauer P225 (aka P6 Pistol) - 9x19mm.
Berlin police officers arrive, armed with SIG-Sauer P225's, and a standoff ensues. The officers with the black berets are members of Berlin's Bereitschaftspolizei
, a special rapid reaction and riot police unit. Notice that the officer on the far right, who accidentally shoots Lola, has sustained a stovepipe, or Type II, malfunction.
A Berlin police officer, startled by Lola throwing the bag of money into the air, accidentally fires his SIG-Sauer P225, hitting Lola (Franka Potente
) directly in the chest during the "first run", the scene then abruptly restarts to the "second run". No real police officer would have his finger on the trigger, nor be shocked enough by something so simple to have a negligent discharge with his weapon.
Heckler & Koch MP5A3
One of the German SWAT cops has an Heckler & Koch MP5A3.
