Talk:CSI: Crime Scene Investigation
The following weapons appear in the TV series CSI: Crime Scene Investigation:
The Glock 17 is the most common handgun featured in the series. Dr. Gil Grissom (William Petersen) carried one in Seasons 1-2 as well in Season 4's premiere, but after that was never seen wielding one again. Detective Vartann (Alex Carter) is also frequently seen carrying a Glock 17 as well as most of the junior detectives and officers.
In addition to the full-size Glock 17's, Sara Sidle (Jorja Fox), Catherine Willows (Marg Helgenberger) being one of the only CSIs to shoot and kill a suspect with their duty issue, and Sophia Curtis (Louise Lombard) each carried a Glock 26. CSI Morgan Brody (Elisabeth Harnois) carries a Glock 26 as her weapon. While Sara Sidle carried one from season 1-8, Catherine only used one from season 1 through season 3 where she then switched to a SIG P232. Detective Curtis carried one from season 6-8. Gil Grissom carries one in Season 4, episode 6 entitled "Jackpot".
Smith & Wesson SW99
Nick Stokes (George Eads) uses a Smith & Wesson SW99 with a nickel-plated slide. Its most prominent showing is in the Season 5 finale "Grave Danger" when the gun is tossed in with Nick before he is buried alive in a Plexiglass coffin. Midway through the episode, having discovered that his built-in air supply is threatened by a light inside the coffin (which comes on whenever his colleagues activate a website and webcam that allows them to view his plight), Nick stuffs his ears with gum and then shoots out the light, giving Warrick Brown (Gary Dourdan) a scare (He later regrets it when fire ants invade the coffin). Nick frequently seen with his gun drawn is the final episodes of season 8 and 9 when apprehending the rogue Undersheriff Jeff McKeen (Conor O'Farrell). In the Season 10 finale Nick uses his SW99 to shoot Dr. Jekyll 6 times killing him instantly after Dr. Jekyll shoots him in the chest and shoulder with a shotgun.
Smith & Wesson 669
A Smith & Wesson 669 is found in a computer tower in Season 1's "I-15 Murders" (S1E11).
Smith & Wesson 5906
Warrick Brown and Nick Stokes carried a Smith & Wesson 5906 with adjustable sights through seasons 1-4. In season 5 Nick changes to his SW99 and Warrick Brown Changes to a Smith & Wesson 5906 with Novak sites. In the Season 8 episode "For Gedda" (S8E17) Warrick is once again seen using a Smith & Wesson 5906 with adjustable sites when being framed for killing a mob boss.
Sofia Curtis and Catherine Willows are seen carrying SIG-Sauer P232s through season 4-8. While Sofia is only seen carrying one of these during the shootout in "A Bullet Runs Thorough It part 1" (S6E7) Catherine is seen wielding it in every season since season 4.
Mike Keppler (Liev Schreiber) carries a SIG-Sauer P226 pistol as his sidearm throughout his time on the show. In the Season 8 episode, "Drops Out" (S8E14), Walter Jaynes (Grant Sullivan) uses a two-tone P226 to commit two murders and hold Drops and his pregnant girlfriend hostage along with a Beretta 92FS Inox.
Heckler & Koch USP
Capt. Jim Brass (Paul Guilfoyle) carries a Heckler & Koch USP as his sidearm in season 1 & 2, before switching to the SIG-Sauer P228 mentioned above. A USP was also identified as a murder weapon in another episode due to the effects of the USP's rifling on the bullet.
The Beretta 92FS is another common weapon seen used in the series, by both cops and criminals. In one episode, a man wakes up to a break-in of his home, producing a two-tone Beretta 92FS when he goes to investigate. He discovers his kitchen being ransacked by a group of people who flee upon being confronted by the armed homeowner.
In the episode "Snakes" (S5E12), an elderly WW2 veteran named Stuart Manslow (George Murdock) uses a Luger P08 pistol brought back with him from the war to kill a telemarketer named Vincent Decarlo (Chad Donella), having become disgusted with his "parasitic" habit of taking advantage of his fellow nursing home residents. He later surrenders the weapon to Warrick Brown after explaining what he'd done. One is seen on display with custom grips in episode "Better Off Dead."
When investigating the murder of the telemarketer mentioned above, Brass and Warrick question Dax Blanchard (Reid Scott), one of his co-workers. During the conversation, the telemarketer is discovered to be carrying a concealed Ruger KP89, which he claims to have a permit for.
The Walther PPK makes a few appearances in a few episodes. Hank Connor used one to kill Chyna DeVere (Dawn Drake) in the episode "Leapin' Lizards" (S7E22) from Series 7. In the Series 6 episode, "Killer" (S6E14), Karl Cooper (William Sadler) uses one with a suppressor to murder Clayton Nash for testifying against him.
Beretta 21 Bobcat
In the episode "Homebodies" (S4E03), a young boy discovers a Beretta 21 Bobcat hidden in a flowerbed in his backyard, and accidentally shoots himself in the foot with the weapon. It is later discovered that local bounty hunter Frank Maddox (M.C. Gainey) had used it to commit suicide after his business failed, using balloons to transport the pistol away from the scene to make it appear he was murdered, the balloons depositing the weapon in the flowerbed. Another Bobcat appears in the episode "Weeping Willows", found in a car during an investigation, this one having wooden grips.
AMT Hardballer Longslide
A flashback of Keppler's past shows him executing a kid in Trenton, New Jersey with a .45 AMT Hardballer Longslide pistol, which he later found in a plastic bag with the victim's blood & his prints on it in "Law of Gravity" (S7E15).
Smith & Wesson Model 629
A Smith & Wesson Model 629 is test fired by Sara Sidle (Jorja Fox) in the Season 1 episode "Sex, Lies and Larvae" (S1E10). A noticeable error in the episode is that the coroner identifies the bullet wound being from a .38, whereas the 629 is only chambered in .44 Magnum.
NAA Mini revolver
In "Zippered" (S12E09), a batch of FN P90s is stolen from the Middle East and snuck into the US. The CSIs erroneously state the the 5.7x28mm rounds used by the weapon are illegal in the United States. The gun is also continually referred to as a "Supergun", capable of cutting a man in half (Referred to by an FBI agent in the show as "Zippering", as if it's something they see every day). Another peculiarity is that even the ballistics expert at CSI has never even heard of the caliber before.
Heckler & Koch MP5A3
In the episode "Poppin' Tags" (S6E20), gang members use a Heckler & Koch MP5A3 stolen from Las Vegas P.D. SWAT to conduct a drive-by shooting. The weapon is later disassembled and destroyed in an attempt to get rid of the evidence.
Heckler & Koch MP5K
In the bank robbery in "Inside the Box" (S3E23) a bank robber has an Heckler & Koch MP5K with a sling during a daring daytime heist.
There are several appearances of MAC-10s in the series, frequently seen used by criminals and gang members.
Olympic Arms OA-93
Two of the bank robbers from the episode "Inside the Box" (S3E23) are armed with short AR-15 Pistols. The upper receivers seem to be the Olympic Arms OA-93, but the lower receivers have a short buffer tube, which is not necessary on the OA-93 design since the top receiver and foregrip include the innovative spring system that doesn't require a buffer tube and spring to operate the bolt carrier. Since the guns never fire in the episode, one can assume that a prop armorer assembled these pistols up from different guns. They are also seen fitted with telescoping stocks as used on M16 rifle series-type carbines.
Steyr AUG A3
In the episode "Leapin' Lizards" (S7E22), a paranoid conspiracy nut named Hank Connor (Carl Ciarfalio) engages Las Vegas P.D. SWAT in a shootout while holed up in his home, committing suicide when SWAT manages to gain entry. Among the weapons stockpiled in his home is a Steyr AUG A3 rifle.
A 12 Gauge Mossberg 500 shotgun is seen used in the grocery store robbery in "Paper or Plastic" (S4E14).
In one episode, an LVPD patrolman uses an X26 Taser to subdue a violent suspect after mace proves ineffective. When the suspect is shot with the Taser however, he bursts into flames and burns to death. Later on, Nick Stokes (George Eads) can be seen firing the Taser in the crime lab while trying to recreate the conditions of the incident, the investigation revealing that the mace used prior to the taser shot was a civilian brand that was not approved for LVPD use due to it being potentially flammable. This incident was later tested in an episode of Mythbusters, the hosts also having had a cameo appearance as lab technicians looking on as Nick Stokes was test-firing the Taser.
Anyone able to Identify the Weapons seen in a new Episode of CSI?
From Season 10, Episode 10. Thanks to CBS for the Clip.
Here are some clips
The anonymous user wanted us to ID these guns ;) Boy this guy knows how to pick them. It's from the shootout inside the Nevada gun store..... MoviePropMaster2008 03:01, 2 January 2010 (UTC)
Just ID'ed some of the weapons, but couldn't identify all of them due to the quality of the images and plain not knowing what some of the guns were. Orca1 9904 03:24, 2 January 2010 (UTC)
New Weapons - Reply
Thanks for your Images :D
I think the three shooters used a Glock 19, SIG Sauer P229 & Colt Commander.
Another Note, Alot of Guns were named by Characters anyway...
Greg Sanders: Luger's, Tokarev's, Old Colts. Capt. Brass: That's where we found him, Curled around his Glock.
There was one show that a mercenery used a Sprinfield Socom 16 to snipe a person at a bank robbery and then he had it again in the desert when he was killed at the end. Sorry i cant remember anything else about it. Spades of Columbia
Just a Heads Up
The gun that McKeen used to shoot Warrick was a 950 Jetfire, not a Bobcat. You can see this when Catherine's examining the gun. TheHeartbreakKid15 17:45, 9 October 2011 (CDT)
P90 in the latest episode.
So, i figured id throw this up here. As the episode is new, there arent any screen shots, but i figured it was worth talking about.
In this new episode, the FN P90 is featured although the information presented is more or less all incorrect.
The CSI team finds a house full of bullets with lots of blood but no body, and a ton of 5.7x28 casings. Its claimed by the CSI team that the 5.7 is not legal in the US, and that the P90 is a completely uncontrollable weapon, and that explains how later a robber shoots himself in the foot using a stolen P90. They also claim that the gun was used to "zipper" a man in half.
While the P90 has an incredible rate of fire, its considered an extremely controllable gun, even in full auto, which is WHY the Secret Service currently deploy it as one of their current sub guns. As well, the 5.7 is legal in the US for civilian ownership.
Its also claimed that the P90's were stolen from the Army in which they're used in a "breaching" role, but as far as im aware, the US Army doesnt use the P90 at all.
Just figured id vent a little here, it feels as if TV shows are purposely trying to get further and further away from the truth.
Anyone interested in helping to complete this article? With 12 seasons already its a big task for one person but if a bunch of us take a season a piece... If anyone wants to help out let me know. --Zackmann08 16:10, 14 December 2011 (CST)
