Skyfall is the 23rd entry in the official James Bond film series and marked the 50th anniversary of the premiere of Dr. No, the first feature film in the EON-produced series. Daniel Craig returns for the third time as Agent 007, who upon his return from what appeared to be his demise on a previous mission, is given the assignment of tracking down a cyberterrorist who threatens to reveal the identities of deep cover agents. 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.
The following weapons were used in the film Skyfall:
WARNING! THIS PAGE CONTAINS SPOILERS!
James Bond (Daniel Craig) carries the Walther PPK as his sidearm in the film. Field Agent Eve (Naomie Harris) also uses a PPK during the film's opening chase. 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 can fire it. This palm print-reading gun is lost in Macau, after which Bond replaces it with a standard PPK. This 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.
Walther PPK - 7.65mm Browning aka .32 ACP

. While the dialog identifies the pistol as a PPK/S in 9mm short (.380 ACP), the prop was a standard PPK in .32 ACP fitted with mock-up grips.

Bond fires his Walther PPK at Patrice while on the train.
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 than Bond fired and three more than the capacity of a PPK.
Bond inspects his "Walther PPK/S nine-millimeter short" that is fitted with custom grips.
The special indicator on the pistol flashes green, allowing Bond to fire the gun. This kind of security measure was also seen in the film Licence to Kill

) as he holds the Walther PPK in Shanghai. Note that, unlike in the final film, Bond wears gloves (which would prevent his PPK from firing). Apparently, this mistake was only discovered and corrected after the Shanghai scenes had been shot.

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.

Eve (Naomie Harris
) fires the Glock 17 that Bond kicked over to her while protecting the board members during Silva's attack.
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.

Custom Sniper Rifle
Patrice (Ola Rapace) uses a custom bolt action suppressed sniper rifle when assassinating a target in Shanghai. Patrice can be seen working the bolt, but during a fight, the rifle appears to be fired semi-automatically.

The block suppressor is seen.
Despite the bolt action, the rifle appears to be seen firing semi-automatically during a fight. The gunfire and muzzle flash (despite being suppressed) are mostly likely post-production effects.
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 a DB5 in Casino Royale (2006)
, the vehicle seen here isn't the same one (The Casino Royale
DB5 was left-hand drive, while this one is right-hand drive). This DB5's machine guns and other gadgets are more reminiscent of the car seen in Goldfinger
, where the MI6-issued Aston Martin driven by Bond had the same armaments. The license plate as well reads BMT 216A, another reference to Goldfinger.
AN/M14 Incendiary Grenade
Silva tosses several AN/M14 incendiary grenades into Skyfall Lodge during the climax.
