|| United States
The Expendables 2 is the 2012 sequel to 2010's The Expendables. The film was directed by Simon West (Con Air) and Sylvester Stallone returns as the leader of his team of mercenaries, who this time are tasked by the CIA to prevent a cache of plutonium from falling into the wrong hands. As in the original film, nearly all of the biggest names in action films from the past two decades make appearances in the sequel and in addition to expanded roles for Bruce Willis and Arnold Schwarzenegger, Chuck Norris and Jean-Claude Van Damme also appear in this film. The Expendables 3, the third film in the trilogy, was released in 2014.
The following weapons were used in the film The Expendables 2:
WARNING! THIS PAGE CONTAINS SPOILERS!
Custom Kimber Gold Combat II
Barney Ross (Sylvester Stallone) uses a pair of Kimber Gold Combat II pistols as his sidearms in the film, the same Kimber Gold Combat II pistols that he wielded in the first film. In this film, the Kimbers' grips feature small "Expendable" emblems on both guns. The same symbol is also seen in Barney's toothpick knife.

Colt M1911A1 (customized)
Hector (Scott Adkins) uses a heavily customized Colt M1911A1 pistol as his sidearm in the film. This is likely the same gun that was seen in the first film and in the 2004 adaptation of The Punisher.

Maggie Chan (Nan Yu) also uses the UMP during the shootout at the airport. Various henchmen also use the UMP as their primary firearm in the film. Mr. Church (Bruce Willis) also picks up a UMP during the shootout at the airport, and subsequently uses it until it runs out of ammo.

Noveske Rifleworks Diplomat
Barney Ross (Sylvester Stallone), Yin Yang (Jet Li), and Gunnar Jensen (Dolph Lundgren) use Noveske Rifleworks Diplomats with Vltor VIS-1 monolithic upper receiver assemblies during the rescue mission in the beginning. Most of the main characters use the Diplomat when they are searching for the crash site of a Chinese jet. These rifles are most likely the same weapons that ISS (Independent Studio Services) acquired for The Expendables.

Toll Road, and a couple of the Sangs also use M4A1 carbines during the shootout at the airport. Trench Mauser (Arnold Schwarzenegger) picks up one of the M4s after his AA-12 shotgun runs empty, and uses it subsequently. Interestingly, the M4A1 in question has no rear sight, but it's not like Arnie ever used weapon sights anyway.
