Work In Progress
Yakuza 0 (Japanese: 龍が如く0 誓いの場所| Ryū ga Gotoku Zero: Chikai no Basho Lit. Like a Dragon 0: The Place of Oath) is a Japanese video game released in March 2015 in Japan, January 2017 in English-speaking regions, and on Microsoft Windows in August 2018. It is a prequel to the Yakuza series, set in December 1988, in Kamurocho and Sotenbori, fictional versions of Tokyo's Kabukicho and Golden Gai, and Osaka's Dotonbori respectively. The game follows a 20-year-old Kazuma Kiryu and 24-year-old Goro Majima as they uncover the mystery of an empty lot in the middle of Kamurocho whose worth has attracted the attention of some of Japan's biggest criminal enterprises. Most of these gun models are recycled from previous games.
The following weapons appear in the video game Yakuza 0:
The weirdly shaped 1911 variant from Yakuza: Dead Souls returns, mostly as the sidearm of main antagonist Keiji Shibusawa. While its details are muddled, it mostly resembles a Para Ordnance LDA with a few skewed features.
The Beretta 92FS appears as the primary sidearm of Masaru Sera, used heavily by him and given to Majima at the end of the story.
The Makarov PM pistol appears as the "9mm Automatic Pistol" as well as the "Worn Out Pistol" and is used heavily by Yakuza members as well as Akira Nishikiyama. It is also used by property manager Yamanoi to threaten the Finance King, who then appropriates it to try and fight Kiryu.
The SIG Pro is used by Hiroki Awano (Riki Takeuchi) as his sidearm, used both to threaten Kiryu in a closed disco and to actually fire on him when he escapes the Dojima Family ambush. Another model from Yakuza 3, this one is rendered anachronistic by the backwards time shift: the SIG Pro was not introduced until 1999.
SIG-Sauer P226/Heckler & Koch USP
Returning again from Yakuza 3 is this model based on the SIG-Sauer P226, with minor elements from the Heckler & Koch USP both as the "Modified Air Gun" as well as the primary sidearm of Jin Oda and used by Kiryu in a car chase against the Shibusawa Family. Like in Yakuza 3, the in-game files list it as a CZ-75 but the overall design is a match for the hybrid gun. Although the USP did not go into service until 1993, as mentioned, this gun is mostly based on the period-accurate P226.
Yet another model from Yakuza 3 is the completely misshapen and inaccurate SIG-Sauer P230, although mercifully retextured in black instead of Yakuza 3's gold. This is Tsukasa Sagawa's pistol, which he uses to shoot Masaru Sera, although not fatally. One must wonder why the developers did not simply use the far more accurate P230 model from Yakuza: Dead Souls.
Type 67 silenced pistol
The rare Type 67 silenced pistol is used by master assassin and secondary antagonist Lao Gui. The game files describes it as a Type 64, but it more closely resembles a Type 67, as the former features a large bulge underneath the barrel. The location of the safety and magazine release, as well as the shape of the trigger guard, appear to have been adopted from the Nambu type 94. This is the only handgun model in Yakuza 0 that was created specially for the game.
The Walther PPK appears in the hands of members of the Omi Alliance sent to kidnap Makoto Makimura from the massage parlor. An unsuppressed model also appears in the hands of Sohei Dojima during Majima's finale. The Yakuza developers appear to have a thing for playing pass-the-parcel with reusing parts from other gun models. In the same way the SIG Pro's triangle shaped magazine release button ended up on the P226, the SIG P230's decocker lever is reused on the Walther PPK as some sort of slide stop.

Nambu Model 60/Smith & Wesson Model 36
This Nambu Model 60/Smith & Wesson Model 36 hybrid revolver appears as the "Double Action Revolver" and is the "in-hand" model used by Japanese police officers. It is notably used by a corrupt cop who uses it to kill Bilikin and Nishitani. Part of this scene shows that the cylinder model has not been separated from the rounds.
The Baikal MP-133 makes up most of the shotguns in 0 like it does in Kiwami, commonly carried by Yakuza and random thugs and purchasable from the weapon shop. There is the normal wood stocked "Broken M1985", the synthetic stocked "Expulsion S-12", the gold plated "Golden Shotgun" which is unlockable with CP points and a sawn off version known as the "Zap Gun" which works like a stun gun, albeit using the same animations as the normal rifle-stocked versions. Like the SIG Pro, P226 and a few others, this model is lifted from Yakuza 3 and is anachronistic as the MP133 wasn't produced until 2000.
This is a Coach Gun that as the name suggests, is in gold. It is called a "Golden Rifle" as it is based on the same models from Yakuza 5, which are double barreled shotguns with rifled barrels for hunting. This means it is defined as a "rifle" in areas where such determinations are based solely on whether the gun has rifled barrels or not. But IMFDb classifies it as a shotgun due to it using shotgun cartridges.
One of the more interesting weapon options from the weapon store is what appears to be a 17th Century naval cannon without a wheel mount. This is recycled from the "special" cannon weapon class on Yakuza 0's predecessor Ryu ga Gotoku Ishin!. Both the "Cannon" and the engraved "Destroyer of Lands" do quite a lot of damage to whoever you fire at.
