The Transporter is a 2002 action film starring Jason Statham as the title character Frank, an expert driver who specializes in transporting any type of cargo anywhere on time, no questions asked. When one package he was to transport nearly kills him, Frank finds himself on the run from traffickers and the police. The film was co-directed by Louis Leterrier and Corey Yuen from a story by Luc Besson. Statham would return as the Transporter in two more films and the film would also spawn a television series and the 2015 feature reboot The Transporter Refueled.
The following weapons were used in the film The Transporter:
Pardini PC9 Pistol
The lead robber during the beginning of the film, holds a Italian made Pardini PC9 pistol. It is a large match grade target pistol, used in European IPSC style competitions and somewhat unlikely weapon to be carried by a bank robber.
A thug at the house uses a Beretta 92FS.
Beretta 92FS Inox
Bruni 8mm M1911 Blank Pistol (Nickel)
Beretta Cougar Inox
A Beretta Cougar Inox with wood grips is used by one of Kwai's bodyguards. A thug earlier at the house also appears to be using the same Beretta Cougar Inox.
A thug at the house uses a Glock 17. One of Kwai's bodyguards also uses one.
Seen inside Frank's fishing tub, also where he keeps several grenades and his SIG SG 552 and spare magazines.
Smith & Wesson Model 29
Two of the bank robbers in the beginning of the film used Smith & Wesson Model 29 revolvers. One is blued and the other is bright nickel plated.
Smith & Wesson Model 686 Customized
Mr. Kwai (Ric Young) pulls out a Pre "Performance Center" customized Smith & Wesson Model 686 during the highway chase. Considering the production, the gun probably was the same used on the set of "Wasabi".
Smith & Wesson Model 36
An Smith & Wesson Model 36 Snub nosed revolver (with black plastic grips) is carried by Tarconi (François Berléand) who offers it to Frank who uses it in his escape. Tarconi later offers the same revolver to Frank for his assault on the shipyard, which Frank declines, instead showing that he has bigger firepower for the mission.
At least one of the French police has a Manurhin MR-73 Gendarmie Revolver. If you look closely, you can see the hammer and the cylinder lock look different, because the models used in the movie are Manurhin F1, the F1 has a Ruger frame and mechanism, Manurhin produces the barrel and the cylinder.
Ruger Super Redhawk
Heckler & Koch MP5K
One of Wall Street's thugs at the house uses an MP5K to try to kill Frank.
Some of the French National Police who open the truck's container have Beretta M12 Submachine guns slung.
SIG SG 552
A SIG SG 552 equipped with a later 1960s/early 1970s Weaver Qwik-Point occluded eye gunsight is used by Frank when he is checking shipping containers for smuggled Chinese people.
The third assassin who shoots up Frank Martin's house uses a M16A1. It is equipped with a very early laser aiming device; the Laser Products Corporation model 15 which is circa 1984.
SIG SG 543
A SIG SG 543 is used by one of Wall Streets' assassins to shoot up Frank Martin's house. His SIG SG 543 has a 40mm launcher attached. The launcher for the SIG SG 550 series is the SIG GL 5140 grenade launcher however this is not one of those launchers. Maybe an older launcher meant for the SG 540?
During the battle inside the Bus depot, one of Wall Street's thugs fires a customized Ruger AC556 (the full auto version of the Ruger Mini 14) at Frank Martin. The rifle has a Choate™ aftermarket flash hider extension as well as a flashlight mounted to the barrel.
During the battle inside the Bus depot, one of Wall Street's thugs uses a standard Steyr AUG at Frank Martin.
During the battle inside the Bus Depot, one of the assassins fires a full auto M16A2. The real M16A2 is a three shot burst weapon, so this is a 'fake' M16A2 often seen in films (Consisting of an A2 rifle and upper receiver mated with a full-auto A1 lower receiver). In some shots there are marks on the barrel that resemble the cutouts of an M4, however upon closer inspection, they are wear marks from either a non-standard laser or flashlight mount.
Light Machine Guns
Steyr AUG HBAR
A Steyr AUG HBAR is used by one of Wall Streets' assassins to shoot up Frank Martin's house.
Wall Street during the highway chase uses a Remington 870 shotgun with black synthetic furniture, a pistol grip, and a flashlight attached under the barrel.
The luckless robber at the beginning of the film has a Mossberg 500 shotgun that has been tapped for scope mounts.
Fake MATADOR Rocket Launcher
One of Wall Street's assassins uses a mocked up launcher that somewhat resembles the MATADOR Missile Launcher, however, the method of launching is completely different. It loads (and reloads) in the rear like an M1A1 Bazooka and fires 'self guiding' rockets that appear to be able to make 90 degree turns in flight.
During the attack on Frank's house we can see a lot of 'spent' rounds falling to the ground. The extended tip and star crimped ends indicate that they are 5.56mm blank ammo.
