The 2012 film was directed by Sam Mendes, who previously directed Craig in Road to Perdition. The cast includes Javier Bardem, Ralph Fiennes, and Naomie Harris in addition to Judi Dench, returning for her seventh outing in the role of M.

Handguns

Walther PPK and PPK/S

James Bond (Daniel Craig) carries the Walther PPK and the Walther PPK/S as his sidearm in the film. Field Agent Eve (Naomie Harris) also uses a PPK during the film's opening chase. Bond started carrying the Walther PP in Dr. No and the Walther PPK in From Russia With Love. He has carried the Walther PPK in every movie since then, not including a brief change during Octopussy when he carried a Walther P5. During the final act of Tomorrow Never Dies, Bond switches his sidearm to the Walther P99 and retains it as his sidearm through the next three movies in the series, The World Is Not Enough , Die Another Day and the reboot Casino Royale (2006). However, since Quantum of Solace, Bond appears to have switched back to the PPK. When Q (Ben Whishaw) issues Bond his new pistol, he refers to it as a "Walther PPK/S, nine-millimeter short" and states that the gun is coded to Bond's palm print so that only he could fire it. After losing the palm print-reading model in Macau, Bond carries a standard PPK in .32 when back in the UK. It is later used by M (Judi Dench) in the finale when Silva's men attack Skyfall Lodge. As M fires the PPK at Silva's men, she remembers how bad of a shot she is.

Bond fires the PPK during firearms qualification. Note that when Bond gets mad because he can no longer shoot and empties his PPK into the target, he fires the pistol 9 times, one more than the capacity of a PPK (although this would be possible with the .22 LR version). The target shows eleven bullet holes, two more then Bond fired and three more then the capacity of a PPK.

Glock 17

Raoul Silva/Tiago Rodriguez (Javier Bardem) and several of his henchmen use Glock 17 pistols during the inquiry board shootout while disguised as police officers. Glock 17 is also the standard sidearm of the SCO19 Firearms Officers and armed police officers at the public inquiry attack. Gareth Mallory (Ralph Fiennes) and Eve (Naomie Harris) also use Glock 17s during the inquiry board attack, picked up from fallen police officers. James Bond (Daniel Craig) also uses a Glock 17 on Silva's island, as do several of Silva's henchmen. Patrice (Ola Rapace) uses suppressed Glock 17 in Shanghai.

Glock 18

Patrice (Ola Rapace) uses a Glock 18 when he engages in a shootout with Bond and Eve in Turkey. This handgun is loaded with "depleted uranium" rounds (rather strange, as DU is usually only used in aircraft and tank rounds. A 9mm DU round would offer little armor piercing capability on account of its low velocity and mass). He initially uses the pistol with a 100-round Beta-C drum magazine, but later switches to extended 33-round ones during the train chase. The Glock in question has a completely enclosed slide and not the cutout version of the 18C.

Double Barreled Express Rifle

Anderson Wheeler 500 NE Double Rifle

During the assault on Skyfall Lodge, James Bond (Daniel Craig) uses his deceased father's Anderson Wheeler Double Rifle chambered in .500 Nitro Express. Anderson Wheeler is a London-based maker of luxury rifles and shotguns whose custom made double rifles are also available in calibers from .375 to .600. Bond's depiction of recoil is akin to that of a nail gun, despite the mammoth cartridge. Bond casually discards it when it runs out of ammunition.

Aston Martin Machine Guns

Bond utilizes machine guns mounted underneath the lights of his customized DB5 when Silva's men attempt to storm Skyfall Lodge. The machine guns are a homage to the earlier Bond film Goldfinger, where the Aston Martin driven by Bond had the same armaments.

Bond utilizes machine guns mounted underneath the lights of his customized DB5 when Silva's men attempt to storm Skyfall Lodge. While Bond was seen winning the DB5 in Casino Royale (2006) (though this is not the same vehicle, as the DB5 in Casino Royale was left-hand drive, whilst this one is right-hand drive) the machine guns and other gadgets are more reminiscent of the car seen in Goldfinger, where the Aston Martin driven by Bond had the same armaments. The license plate as well reads BMT 216A, another reference to Goldfinger.

Other

AN/M14 Incendiary Grenade

Silva tosses several AN/M14 incendiary grenades into Skyfall Lodge during the climax.
