X-Men Origins: Wolverine
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 retells the story of how Logan became the fierce Wolverine and what happened to his relationship with his brother and fellow mutant Victor (Liev Schreiber), who also possesses the power of immortality. The film's cast includes Ryan Reynolds, Taylor Kitsch, Dominic Monaghan, Kevin Durand, Daniel Henney, and Danny Huston and the film would also inspire a 2009 video game. In addition to the X-Men sequels, Jackman would return as Logan in two more standalone Wolverine films: 2013's The Wolverine and 2017's Logan. Ryan Reynolds would return as a somewhat different version of Deadpool in his own feature film in 2016.
The following weapons were used in the film X-Men Origins: Wolverine:
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 is anachronistic. The 92 itself is not anachronistic, having entered service in 1975, but the 92FS Inox wasn't developed until 1990. It could possibly be nickel-plated.
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.
Col. Stryker (Danny Huston) uses a 7.5" 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.
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 1979, making these handguns anachronistic. The Taurus PT92 wasn't released until 1983.
Enfield Pattern 1853
During the opening credits, both James Howlett (Hugh Jackman) and Victor Creed (Liev Schreiber) are seen carrying Enfield Pattern 1853 rifles as Union soldiers during the Civil War. Several Union and Confederate soldiers are seen using Enfield rifles as well.
Mauser Gewehr 1898
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.
As Victor charges the machine gun bunker, the Karabiner 98k is seen used by one of the German soldiers.
Some of the men serving with Howlett are seen using M1 Carbines during WWII.
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 653
US soldiers during Vietnam hold up Victor Creed (Liev Schreiber) with M16A1s after he kills his commanding officer. When he and Howlett (Hugh Jackman) are tied up to posts and shot by a firing squad, they too are using M16A1s. During both of these sequences, the M16A1's are fitted with 30 round magazines.
During the opening credits, one of the US soldiers in Vietnam is seen aiming an M14 Rifle at Howlett and Creed.
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.
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).
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.
Browning Automatic Rifle
The Browning M1919A4 machine gun is seen mounted on the LCVP that transports James and Victor before storming the beaches in World War II.
DShK Heavy Machine Gun
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!).
M60 Machine Gun
Victor Creed/Sabretooth (Liev Schreiber) is seen firing an M60 machine gun from the side of a helicopter when he serves in the Vietnam War. Several of the Vietnam troops carry these also. Blob (Kevin Durand) is seen with an M60 when the team holds some villagers at gunpoint.
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.
