Spider-Man (2002)

Spider-Man is the 2002 feature film adaptation of the Marvel Comics superhero. Directed by Sam Raimi, the film stars Tobey Maguire as Peter Parker, a high school student who is bitten by radioactive spider and subsequently gains super powers. This trilogy of Spider-man films would continue with 2004's Spider-Man 2 and 2007's Spider-Man 3. The character of Spider-man would be adapted again beginning with 2012's The Amazing Spider-Man starring Andrew Garfield as Peter Parker and then in 2016, as part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.



The following weapons were used in the film Spider-Man:

Contents


Pistols

Beretta 92FS Inox

Soon after the wrestling match, the promoter is robbed at gunpoint by a criminal (Michael Papajohn, whose character name is later identified in Spider-Man 3 as Dennis Carradine) wielding a Beretta 92FS Inox. The robber pistol-whips the promoter with the Beretta and then later uses it to fatally wound Ben Parker (Cliff Robertson). He then uses the Beretta in a futile attempt to shoot at Peter Parker (Tobey Maguire) as he's being pursued. There are several continuity errors regarding this gun - as will be seen below.

Beretta 92FS Inox - 9x19mm
The robber draws his Beretta 92FS Inox on the wrestling promoter.
The robber drops the magazine out of his Beretta to reload. Note that the gun is in his right hand, even though a second ago, it was in his left hand. Furthermore, he reloads even though the gun is clearly not empty, which should have meant that a live round was ejected from the chamber after he racked the slide. Also note how the hammer goes from being cocked to decocked in different shots of the same scene.
The robber nervously holds his Beretta 92FS Inox as he searches for Peter.
The robber points his Beretta at Peter shortly before the weapon is twisted out of his hand.

Taurus PT92AFS

During the car chase scene, when Peter Parker jumps on the roof of the car, the carjacker fires his pistol at him. Due to a continuity error, his Beretta 92FS Inox becomes a stainless Taurus PT92AFS as he fires into the car roof. A close inspection of the gun in the screenshot below reveals that the pistol's trigger guard is the "flared" style of the Taurus PT92, rather than the "squared" style of the Beretta 92FS.

Taurus PT92AFS (stainless) - 9x19mm
The carjacker fires his pistol at Peter on the roof of the car, which is now a stainless Taurus PT92AFS instead of the Beretta 92FS Inox he uses in other scenes. Note the "flared" trigger guard, which characterizes Taurus pistols (Beretta trigger guards are more "squared").

Beretta 92FS

When N.Y.P.D. officers enter the abandoned building after the robber falls out of the window, they can be seen with Beretta 92FS pistols drawn.

You can also see that the safety catch is on, strange for a cautious police officer. He does have excellent trigger discipline and grip, but his thumb may get bit by his slide if he fires.

Glock 17

During the armored van robbery, a robber wields a 2nd Generation Glock 17, using it to pistol-whip the driver in the face. When the N.Y.P.D. officers enter the abandoned building earlier in the film, it appears several of them are also using Glock 17s as well as Beretta 92FS', though it is too dark to get a good look at these pistols.

Walther PPK

When Spider-Man returns the body of the Green Goblin (Willem Dafoe) to the Osborne mansion, Harry Osborne (James Franco) catches him and pulls a Walther PPK from a desk drawer, though Spider-Man is gone by the time he gets it out.

Revolvers

Smith & Wesson Model 629 Performance Center

During the armored van robbery, one of the robbers can be seen with a Smith & Wesson Model 629 Performance Center revolver, trying in vain to shoot Spider-Man with it before being knocked unconscious.

Colt Trooper Mk III

In the scene where Spider-Man takes down the mugger, the mugger can be seen with a Colt Trooper Mk III, but soon has it taken from him by Spider-Man.

Shotguns

Remington 870

During the armored van robbery, one of the robbers can briefly be seen with a Remington 870 shotgun with black synthetic furniture.

Mossberg Maverick 88

In the scene where the convenience store is robbed, one of the robbers can be seen brandishing a Mossberg Maverick 88 with a sawn-off barrel.

Rifles

Heckler & Koch HK91A2

In the scene where Spider-Man foils the armored car robbery, two of the robbers are armed with Heckler & Koch HK91A2 rifles. These rifles were previously mis-identified as select-fire G3A3s, but a close inspection of the weapons from the screenshots below reveals that they lack paddle magazine releases and have the non-pushpin lower receivers of the semi-auto-only HK91.

Heckler & Koch HK91A2 - 7.62x51mm NATO
The armored car robbers are caught in the flash of Peter Parker's camera. Note that the rifle held by the robber on the right clearly has the non-pushpin lower and is lacking a paddle magazine release. This means that the rifles are HK91s rather than G3A3s.
The robbers turn after being distracted by the camera flash, aiming their HK91A2s in the direction of the flash.
