The World is Not Enough is the 19th entry in the official James Bond film series. The 1999 sequel finds Bond (Pierce Brosnan) investigating an attack on MI6 Headquarters in London and finds himself involved with the daughter of the wealthy businessman who was killed in the incident. The film's cast included Robert Carlyle, Sophie Marceau, Denise Richards and Robbie Coltrane. The film also was one of the first to feature the Heckler & Koch G36K.

The following weapons were used in the film The World Is Not Enough:




Walther P99

James Bond (Pierce Brosnan) carries a Walther P99 throughout the film, fitted with a suppressor in one scene. In the first half of the pre-credits sequence, Bond is carrying a P99 that is revealed to be a remote stun grenade, triggered by a button hidden in his eyeglasses.

The Swiss bankers that Bond meets during the precredits sequence in Spain all carry M1911A1s. Bond uses one to try to get information from one of the bankers. Valentin Zukovsky (Robbie Coltrane) fires a M1911A1 during the gunfight in his caviar factory. Many of Renard's men use M1911A1s and Elektra King's Series 70 (taken and used by Bond) turns into a M1911A1 when Bond jumps into the water. This M1911A1 is also a typical "Hollywood" gun, firing about 20-30 rounds despite its 7-8 round capacity.

Colt Mk IV Series 70

Elektra King (Sophie Marceau) is armed with a Colt Mk IV Series 70, which Bond (Pierce Brosnan) takes from her and shoots her with. He tucks the pistol into his waistband and jumps into the water but when he emerges on the submarine, he has an Auto Ordnance 1911.

Due to a continuity error (and a different prop gun - the hammer seems to be blued on this one), Elektra's Series 70 is now decocked.
Bond manages to get Elektra's gun.
Bond aims his Series 70 at Elektra.
"I never miss!" - Despite having just shot Elektra, Bond's Series 70 appears to have not cycled and the hammer is still up.
Bond tucks the Series 70 into his waist before diving down into the water.

Auto Ordnance M1911A1

In the submarine sequence the Series 70 becomes an Auto Ordnance 1911 (see the slanted cocking serrations on the slide), probably due to the change of filming location country. Note the lack of both sights.

Auto Ordnance M1911A1 - .45 ACP.
Bond holds his Auto Ordnance M1911A1 on a submarine terrorist. Note that if the terrorist attempted to disarm him he easily could have, as the hammer is not cocked, so the gun will not fire.
Bond threatens one of Renard's men on the submarine.

SIG-Sauer P228

Renard (Robert Carlyle) draws a SIG-Sauer P228 on the submarine, dropping it when he heads for the reactor.

Smith & Wesson 669

The Cigar Girl (Maria Grazia Cucinotta) uses a Smith & Wesson 669 after ditching her boat, and uses it to threaten a group of people near the hot air balloon, eventually using it to shoot the fuel tanks. In the extended version, she also shoots one of the balloon's pilots.

Smith & Wesson Model 66

When Bond enters Zukovksy's casino with his X-ray glasses on, he sees several heavily-armed people. One man, a bodyguard, has two large Smith & Wesson revolvers under his coat. Another man (Daz Crawford), who threatens Bond before Bond gets the best of him, carries a Smith & Wesson Model 66 under his left armpit, which Bond gives the bartender in exchange for a "shaken, not stirred" vodka martini.

Other Pistols

Bond also can see that women at the casino are armed with compact pistols.

The girls with him each have subcompact pistols. The one on the left appears to carry a Walther PPK/S and the one right of her appears to carry the blank-firing replica of the Beretta Jetfire (which has no hammer) or a COP Derringer.

Note: Walther grips do not feature a medallion, instead, the iconic waving banner, and this pistol has two grip screws, where the Walther has only one. The Beretta 950 is an open slide pistol, an ejection port is clearly seen on the pistol on the right, and the grip profile is not a straight line, it is a quarter inch wider at the top. Additionally, both the 950 and the PPK/S feature prominent hammers which do not appear in the photo.

Makarov PM

Colonel Akakievic (Claude-Oliver Rudolph) and his men at the Kazakhstan ICBM base have Makarov PM pistols, one of which is commandeered by James Bond (Pierce Brosnan) and fired akimbo with his P99 in one shot.

Heckler & Koch G36K

The Cigar Girl (Maria Grazia Cucinotta) attempts to snipe Bond with a Heckler & Koch G36K fitted with a scope and laser sight, but doesn't score a hit. This is also one of the very first appearances of the rifle in a major motion picture.

Heckler & Koch HK21

A heavily modified Heckler & Koch HK21 machine gun is mounted on the speedboat driven by the Cigar Girl (Maria Grazia Cucinotta). She fires it at Bond but the gun is eventually knocked off of its tripod when Bond's boat jumps through it. It has the ergonomic grip and stock from a PSG-1 with other modifications, such as a front handguard/barrel jacket. It also appears to have a muzzle brake.

Cobray Street Sweeper

As a last ditch attempt to get rid of Bond, the Cigar Girl (Maria Grazia Cucinotta) opens fires with an Cobray Street Sweeper semi-automatic shotgun. It is not, as previously thought, an Armsel Striker; it lacks the drum advance lever and has a key rather than a knob on the front of the drum. The shotgun is also apparently modified to fire grenades, judging by the massive explosions. She eventually throws it on the deck of her boat.

Submachine Guns

Steyr TMP

The Parahawk assassins that attack Bond and Elektra in the Caucus Mountains have Steyr TMP submachine guns. Several other terrorists, including Mr. Bullion (Goldie) use TMPs and Bond (Pierce Brosnan) himself has one for a shot at the caviar factory (although surrounding shots have Bond with his P99, leading to the conclusion that this is a continuity error).

FN P90

Renard (Robert Carlyle) and many of his men use the FN P90 throughout the film, notably at the nuclear test site, Zukovksy's factory, and the final shootout. Bond (Pierce Brosnan) uses one briefly during the test site shootout.

Heckler & Koch MP5K

When fleeing the test site, Renard (Robert Carlyle) uses a Heckler & Koch MP5K. One is used by Zukovsky (Robbie Coltrane) when he and his men attack Maiden's Tower near the climax. He notably uses it to kill his treacherous henchman, Bullion. A man in the casino also appears to carry a MP5K.

Zukovksy aims a single shot gun concealed within his cane at one of the manacles in the chair Elektra is using to torture Bond, misleading her to believe that Zukovksy was trying to kill Bond with his last breaths, but was really trying to free him.

Zukovsky pulls back the disguised hammer of his cane gun, which also readies and exposes the trigger.
