Taken 3 (aka Tak3n) is the third and final installment in the Taken film trilogy. Liam Neeson returns as former CIA operative Bryan Mills, who discovers he's been framed for murder and must evade both the authorities as well as the mobsters intent on killing him. Luc Besson returns as Co-Writer/Executive Producer and Oliver Megaton, the director of Taken 2, returns to helm the 2015 sequel. The Taken series would be revisited in a NBC television series prequel that premiered in 2017.


The following weapons were used in the film Taken 3:

Contents


Handguns

Beretta 92A1

The Beretta 92A1 is one of the main pistols used by the Russian thugs. Bryan Mills (Liam Neeson) uses one taken off a security guard and used the weapon during the shootout in the apartment.

Beretta 90Two

As one of the main pistols used by the Russian thugs, a Beretta 90Two loaded with an extended magazine is seen given to Oleg Malankov (Sam Spruell) at the film's beginning.

CZ 75B

What appears to be a CZ 75 "pre-B" pistol is held by a Russian gangster in a flashback.

Glock 17

The Glock 17 appears to be the handgun carried by LAPD officers and detectives, including Det. Garcia (Don Harvey) and Det. Smith (Dylan Bruno), in the film. Bryan uses acquired pistols that he takes from cops for almost the whole film. A thug is also seen with one.

Springfield Armory 1911A1 TRP Operator

Near the film's climax, Bryan Mills takes a .45-caliber Springfield TRP Operator from a Russian thug and uses it throughout the rest of the film.

Note: The pistol is fitted with an accessory rail, full length barrel and stainless muzzle, raised target sights, front slide serrations, ambidextrous safety, target three-hole ring trigger and skeletonized hammer. Based on film production, year of filming and weaponry, this is probably the same pistol used in Luc Besson's 2014 film Lucy by Scarlett Johansson.

SIG-Sauer P226

Although the Beretta 92FS is the main pistol seen in the series, Bryan Mills (Liam Neeson) wields a West German SIG-Sauer P226 throughout the film, which is one of the two guns that he keeps hidden in his rabbit hole. Russian thugs are also seen using assorted P226 handguns, both West German made and American made P226R copies.

Note: Although Bryan uses the Glock 17 and the Beretta for most of the film, he also uses the SIG for some time. This is strange, since only one P226 has been seen in the whole series, and that was very briefly in the first movie. This is probably because the film took place in America, unlike the last two, which had different armorers.

Steyr M9A1

When he goes to his hidden basement, aside from the Glock, Bryan retrieves parts of what appears to be a Steyr M9A1 and assembles it for use. It is likely supposed to be the same Steyr that Bryan used in Taken 2.

What appears to be an older model AK-47 or AKM is used by a Mujahideen soldier in a flashback to the Soviet-Afghan war. Some more Kalashnikovs are seen in other flashbacks.

TDI / KRISS USA Vector SMG

One of Oleg's men uses a TDI Vector with a folding stock. While the film depicts it firing fully automatic, the below screenshot shows that it lacks the forward firing rate selector, meaning that this is a civilian semi-auto Vector, but could have been converted to fire full-auto by the film's armorers.

Machine Guns

RPD

A Soviet RPD light machine gun is briefly seen on the Russian weapons table in a flashback.
