At his residence, Haussman (James Cromwell) is seen pulling a stainless pistol and firing it at a bottle. This pistol appears to be a Blow F06 blank-fire only handgun. This pistol is also used throughout the film by other characters as well.

Submachine Guns

Heckler & Koch MP5K

Craig is seen with what appears to be a suppressed Heckler & Koch MP5K during the opening mission in Afghanistan. Since this weapon is actually seen firing, it's likely that this weapon is actually a Blow Crazy blank-firing replica modeled after the MP5K.

Machine Guns

PK

A heavily-customized PK machine gun is the main firearm wielded by Grimaud (Ving Rhames). This particular machine gun has been fitted with a mock MG42-type barrel above the real barrel to fit a scope and M16-type carry handle on a rail. Unmodified PKs are also seen in the film. The machine guns used in the film are original PKs rather than the later PKMs, as noted by their fluted rear barrels and larger curved gas blocks.
