X-Men Origins: Wolverine (2009)
X-Men Origins: Wolverine is the fourth film in the X-Men film franchise and the first solo film for the character of Wolverine (Hugh Jackman). This film was directed by Gavin Hood and looks at the origins of Logan and his relationship with his brother and fellow mutant. Jackman would return as Logan in The Wolverine, a second standalone Wolverine film released in 2013.
The following weapons were used in the film X-Men Origins: Wolverine:
WARNING! THIS PAGE CONTAINS SPOILERS!
Beretta 92FS Inox
Agent Zero (Daniel Henney) uses a Beretta 92FS Inox fitted with a sound suppressor to shoot a cheap cigar in half while it is in Logan's (Hugh Jackman) mouth when he confronts him in Canada. Since the film takes place around the time of the Three Mile Island nuclear accident (1979), this handgun would appear to be anachronistic.

Victor Creed (Liev Schreiber) is seen with an M1911A1 in his holster while serving in Vietnam and many Vietnam War soldiers also have some holstered. Col. William Stryker (Danny Huston) intimidatingly flashes one in his holster when he has Kayla Silverfox (Lynn Collins) explain his plot to Wolverine (Hugh Jackman). Another soldier trying to make Victor stand down in the Vietnam War scene had an M1911A1 in hand.
Victor Creed's M1911 holster can be seen while he takes down soldiers in Vietnam.
Victor takes down a soldier with an M1911A1 in his left hand.
Col. Stryker (Danny Huston) uses a long barreled stainless Ruger Redhawk with anachronistic Goncalo Alves target grips, (not the newer Super Redhawk, as indicated by the ejector shroud) loaded with adamantium bullets to shoot Wolverine (Hugh Jackman) five times, two of which are fired into his skull, erasing his memory. One would think that Stryker would give this weapon to Agent Zero, since his super powers make him extremely efficient with firearms.
Ruger Redhawk - .44 Magnum. The Redhawk was introduced in 1979 (the Super Redhawk was introduced in 1987) so if this film takes place in the same year as the Three Mile Island Nuclear accident, the stock version of the Redhawk would have just been released to the public.

David North, aka "Agent Zero" (Daniel Henney), carries a pair of stainless Taurus PT92s in the film notably during the Nigerian mission. He shows off his reloading talents by throwing them in the air and inserting fresh mags as they fall, but the CGI had in one instance the slides are locked back, but by the time Zero inserts new mags, the slides were released and he continues to fire without racking the slide or pressing a release, as if he already had one in each chamber. These events appear to take place in the 1970's, making these handguns anachronistic.

A German soldier during WWI shoots Victor Creed (Liev Schreiber) with a Mauser Gewehr 1898 rifle. James Howlett (Hugh Jackman) briefly grabs one and tosses it in the air for Victor to use as a melee weapon while fighting "back-to-back" in the trenches.

Colt Model 733
James Howlett (Hugh Jackman) is seen armed with a Colt Model 733 while serving in Vietnam in 1974. This gun was not available at the time and is anachronistic (the Colt XM177 would have been more accurate).
Colt Model 733 - 5.56x45mm.
In a scene from the trailer, Howlett in Vietnam with an anachronistic Colt Model 733. Note the Brass Deflector on the Receiver, which is not featured in any XM177 variants.

Colt Model 653 "M16A1 Carbine" - 5.56x45mm
US soldiers during Vietnam hold up Victor Creed (Liev Schreiber) with M16A1s after he kills his commanding officer.

Heckler & Koch G36K with AG36 Grenade Launcher
John Wraith (Will I Am) is seen with a Heckler & Koch G36K fitted with a Heckler & Koch AG36 Grenade Launcher during the assault in Nigeria. This mission appears to take place in the 1970's and since the G36K was not introduced until the 1990s, the weapon seen here would be highly anachronistic.
Heckler & Koch G36K fitted with AG36 grenade launcher - 5.56x45mm/40mm.
Nigerian soldiers seen during the first Department H mission in the film use what appear to be Zastava M70B1 rifles to fire on Stryker's men.

Some Nigerian soldiers also use the folding stock Zastava M70B2 rifle. Many members of the team have them slung over their backs, including James Howlett (Hugh Jackman), John Wraith (Will I Am), and Chris Bradley (Dominic Monaghan).
Zastava M70AB2 folding stock rifle - 7.62x39mm (non-standard pistol grip). The military version of the M70AB2 underfolder rifle has a black plastic pistol grip as seen in the image above. However all of the Zastava M70AB2 rifles imported in the U.S. by Mitchell Arms had the wooden pistol grip seen in this photo. So a wooden pistol grip is indicative of a 'Mitchell Arms' rifle.

A Humvee in hot pursuit of Wolverine (Hugh Jackman) fires a Browning M2HB at him as he drives away on a motorcycle. Wolverine then does a hard turn and flips the Humvee with his claws. One of the guns he destroys by chopping off the barrel with his claws, while another he uses to fire at the helicopter before it is destroyed by a rocket. The Browning M2HB is also seen mounted on the Higgins boat in the opening credits.

DShK Heavy Machine Gun
A Nigerian soldier opens fire with a DShK heavy machine gun on Team X during the assault on the compound. The DShK here does not appear to be the common Browning M2 mockup seen in most films.
DShK heavy machine gun - 12.7x109mm.
A bullet from Agent Zero's Taurus causes the gunner to accidentally take down his own men.
GE M134 Minigun
The helicopter in pursuit of Wolverine (Hugh Jackman) has a pintle-mounted GE M134 Minigun, which the gunner uses in an attempt to kill him. The sound effect of the gun firing is far too slow for its actual cyclic rate (in fact, they use the same sound report when depicting the M2HB firing!).

The gunner fires his GE M134 Minigun at Wolverine. Note that the sound effect of the M2HB is used here, despite that the minigun's rate of fire surpasses this.

12 Gauge Double Barreled Shotgun
Thomas Logan (Aaron Jeffery) uses a 12 Gauge Double Barreled Shotgun to kill John Howlett (Peter O'Brien) at the film's start. The old man who takes in James Howlett (Hugh Jackman) after he is turned into Weapon X also uses a side-by-side when he searches for him in his barn. One is also seen in the African's desk as he tries about to grab it to shoot Stryker and his team until Wraith pushes his hand away.
