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.
WARNING! THIS PAGE CONTAINS SPOILERS!
The following weapons were used in the film Skyfall:
James Bond (Daniel Craig) carries the Walther PPK/S as his sidearm in the film. Field Agent Eve (Naomie Harris) also uses a PPK/S 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 first half of Tomorrow Never Dies Bond switches his sidearm to the Walther P99 and retains it as his sidearm through the next three movies, The World Is Not Enough , Die Another Day and Casino Royale. However, since Quantum of Solace, Bond appears to have switched back to the PPK/S, which is the post-1968 American imported version of 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/S when back in the UK. It is later used by M (Judi Dench) in the finale when Silva's men attack Skyfall Lodge.

Bond fires the PPK/S during a firearms qualification drill. Note that when Bond gets mad because he can no longer shoot and empties his PPK/S onto the target, he fires 9 times, one more than the capacity of a PPK/S. The target shows eleven bullet holes, two more then bond fired and three more then the capacity of a PPK/S.

The special indicator on the pistol flashes green, allowing Bond to fire the gun.

Rauol Silva (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.

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.
