Talk:Quantum of Solace
The Walther PPK
There is no way you could yet know the PPK is his main weapon (that is unless they announced it, but I don't believe they have), it's more than likely going to be a P99, why would they go backwards? 126.96.36.199 07:07, 16 July 2008 (UTC)
It is his main weapon, why it is and how it comes about we don't yet know. The P99 is not used at all.
The P99 is never used, Mitchell has a SIG and Bond starts the chase WITH the PPK after drawing it from an IWB, he never acquires it during the chase. He has it before this. Another annoying bit of continuity that's messed up in this film.
I'm not so sure it's a continuity error, as the only gun we see him with until that point is his UMP9. Perhaps whatever armorer he deals with was unable to provide him with a P99? -- What is a continuity error is we're supposed to assume that the opening car chase scene takes place immediately after he shoots Mr. White at the end of Casino Royale. However Bond is wearing completely different clothes!
In the very beginning of the first movie(not continuity wise) Dr. No, Bond's first Walther PPK is given to him as a replacement for his Beretta M1934. Before that one can assume he always used the Beretta. Who knows, maybe he'll go back to it in the next Daniel Craig film? :)
No offense to anyone but I think that its his Back-Up piece, after he did lose his p99 in the end of Casino Royale and he didn't really have time to get another gun, so other than putting his UMP in a sling and wearing a trenchcoat he did an excellent job, I mean even the french teach , improvise adapt overcome.
(if what your saying is true then where does he get the UMP from?? where did he get the new DBS from?? and why wouldnt he get another P99 later on in the film.)
- They ought to give him a damn Walther PPS. It would be perfect for Bond and the pistol's commercial has a Bond-esque feel to it-S&Wshooter 01:50, 13 October 2009 (UTC)
The PPS would be an awesome sidearm for him I thank god that they never gave him a glock. The fact that he carries a Sig in some scenes just makes it better I mean It actually looks like he was SAS the way he handles it .
I just watched the DVD of the film and I believe Bond was actually using a PPK/S. That grip looks a little long for a PPK, to me. It may just be a trick of the film, but, I believe they used a bastard's PPK in the film. Also - I should add that his use of the Sig is simply because he took one off of another MI6 agent.
Its a PPK..
Am I the only one who thinks that he should use the SIG from now on as he is supposed to be ex-SAS. That and I think the SIG is a better weapon, not just in looks. --cool-breeze 21:05, 13 January 2011 (UTC)
- Even though SIG is MUCH better than Walther and it would be nice to see 007 get some SIG action, Walther is for him. It always has been and it always should be. They need to give him a PPS.----JazzBlackBelt-- 11:38, 4 July 2011 (CDT)
In the original films and novels he was yes, but in the new "reboot" version he's supposedly ex-SAS. Vesper mentions him beeing ex-SAS and the producers originally planned to have the opening credit sequence revolve around Bond's SAS career before changing it to the playing cards stuff. --cool-breeze 19:57, 28 February 2011 (UTC)
According to the official website for Casino Royale, Daniel Craig's Bond used to be in the Royal Navy, having gone on to join the Special Boat Service before quitting and joining MI-6. -- TrueBeliever19 20:20, 28 February 2011 (UTC)
Bond is NOT former SAS. As already pointed out he is actually formerly of the SBS and Royal Navy. As for using the ppk, it is simply a creative choice to give him back to iconic weapon he has used for almost 50 years. A lot of Bond fans have always disliked him using a P99. SIGN YOUR POSTS MR ANON!
That's really weird that on the website it says he's former SBS because I remember seeing something about the production of Casino Royale that to make Bond more believable as a killer they decided to change him from being Naval Intelligence to a former SAS operative. And Vesper mentions former SAS. There has been no mention of him being from the Royal Navy in either Casino Royale or Quantum Of Solace. Whereas in almost all of the previous ones there was some mention of his rank of Commander and that he was a Navy officer. --cool-breeze 01:40, 1 March 2011 (UTC)
I think it was more of a generalization, because she said his job was filled with SAS (IMO the British way of saying Special Operations) types with big smiles and expensive watches.
That's a fair point. In reality a lot of SBS operations are credited to the SAS because the SBS still has a vast array of secrecy about it's organisation like the SAS did before the 1980 Iranian Embassy Siege. --cool-breeze 13:30, 1 March 2011 (UTC)
SOMEONE PLEASE UPLOAD SCREENCAPS ASIDE FROM IGN SCREENCAPS, THE DVD IS OUT ALREADY!
- Maybe somewhere else (and if so, then please, feel free to upload screencaps). However, here in the US, where most of our screencappers are, it doesn't come out until next week. So, patience. --Clutch 19:53, 19 March 2009 (UTC)
- The DVD's out now, who want's to piss away $25 to the greater good? (I might unfortunately) - Gunmaster45
Hey, Excalibur (or anyone else more eagle-eyed than me)!
What was the Carabineri police officer's handgun during the pre-title Aston Martin chase? I still can't tell if it's a Beretta 92FS or 92SB. --Clutch 20:16, 25 March 2009 (UTC)
It definitely IS a 92SB, I will try to take a screencap it.-GunnutHk
If Bond loses his Walther after parachuting into the sinkhole, what is it that he surrender's to M's men in the hotel? A knife perhaps?
He gives M somekind of knife.. Can someone more familiar with knives find out what kind of knife it is.
Second, not a gun question but one for sharp-eyed fans, anybody know what kind of beer Bond and Leiter are drinking at the bar before the CIA men try to capture Bond?
Bond and Felix are drinking Heineken
And can someone please explain how he lost his PPK in the freefall scene??? Im pretty sure that didnt happen...
I believe Bond is carrying the knife he took off of Slate after he killed him. --humanzie3
I don't know if the revolver that Bond found in the case was a S&W Model 60, but it's definitely not a GP100. I don't think they ever made a GP100 with a two inch barrel. Unless someone pointed it out in the commentary or in a special feature, I don't see any evidence that would indicate GP100. --funkychinaman 12:04, 28 May 2010 (UTC)
You are correct. That is a smith & wesson trigger and it has writing on the lower right hand side of the frame like a smith & wesson. Spades of Columbia
In addition to the above comment, the front sight on the gun strongly resembles that of a Smith & Wesson M&P revolver. -Gunman69 05:04, 29 May 2010 (UTC)
That revolver is a S&W M&P360 in a 5 round .357 mag. If you look under the cylinder you can actually see the M&P marking. Could someone change that for me. Spades of Columbia
ID of Guns during Tosca
Performers in the Tosca opera are seen using this handgun. Can anyone ID? --Ben41 19:25, 29 May 2010 (UTC)
It looks like an ASP to me, but I'm not sure.
Not a ASP, to be a ASP this gun would need a Safty/decocker on the back end of the slide.Spades of Columbia
Umarex makes a blank firing Colt Double Eagle compact that looks just like that. -J3
Supposed FN FAL rubber prop gun
This looks to me like a replica of a SIG SG 542. The charging handle is on the wrong side for an FAL.
M16A2? Maybe a FAL?
A Bolivian soldier guarding the hotel garage is briefly seen with an M16A2 slung over his shoulder.
- That's the SIG SG 542. - Mr. Wolf 04:16, 3 July 2011 (CDT)
