The following weapons were used in Season 4 of the animated series Archer:
Sterling Archer's primary sidearm is a Walther PPK. According to the Season 2 DVD special features and the companion book How to Archer: The Ultimate Guide to Espionage and Style and Women and Also Cocktails Ever Written, his PPK is chambered in .32 ACP.
Walther PPK stainless - 9mm Kurz aka 9x17mm (.380 ACP)
Archer, shooting Krieger's door and somehow hitting Brett, despite not even being on the same floor
in "Legs" (S04E03).
Archer shooting gangsters in "Midnight Ron" (S04E04)
Archer using his empty Walther to bluff his way out of some sort of unspeakably
rape-y snuff film in "Midnight Ron" (S04E04).
"Ugh. Okay, try not to ruin it this time." (S04E04)
Lana pulls a PPK in "Live and Let Dine" (S04E07).
Archer shoots at an armored cockpit door in "Sea Tunt: Part 1" (S04E12).
"Something else danger zone." (Archer, not even trying anymore with his one liners. Note that this has a different finish than his usual PPK due to the need to blend in with the video camera.) (S04E13)
"Damnit, I had something about point and shoot." (Archer holding Captain Murphy (voiced by Jon Hamm
) at gunpoint when he takes Lana hostage.) (S04E13)
Archer applying the safety, although Krieger had tinkered with the safety earlier.
Springfield M1911-A1 Mil-Spec
Springfield M1911-A1 Mil-Spec Stainless Steel version with black grips - .45 ACP.
"We're nut rubbers." A KGB hitman with his M1911 in "Fugue and Riffs" (S04E01).
"Bob" smacks the M1911A1 out of the hitman's hand in "Fugue and Riffs" (S04E01).
Despite having just fired it, Archer racks the slide on an M1911A1 taken from a KGB hitman.
A bloody "Bob" with the M1911A1.
Archer aims his M1911 at Cyril in "Coyote Lovely" (S04E08).
Cyril levels his M1911 at Archer in "Coyote Lovely" (S04E08).
A KGB hitman uses a Luger P08 in the season premiere, "Fugue and Riffs" (S04E01).
"Bob" grabs the Luger. The entire scene is a crossover with Bob's Burgers
mixed with A History of Violence
Mauser M712 Schnellfeuer
Krieger is armed with a Mauser M712 Schnellfeuer in the Season 4 premiere.
Mauser M712 Schnellfeuer - 7.63x25mm Mauser
"Yay or nay on the moustache?" (Yay!)
Cyril and Krieger take cover from the real KGB agents.
Smith & Wesson Model 67
Ruth Anne Litzenberger shoots a young Archer with a Smith & Wesson Model 67 in a flashback in "Once Bitten" (S04E06). A coyote is armed with one in "Coyote Lovely" (S04E08).
Smith & Wesson Model 67 - .38 Special
Ruth shoots a young Archer in a spoof of The Natural
in "Once Bitten" (S04E06).
A coyote with his S&W 67 in "Coyote Lovely" (S04E08).
The S&W 67 gets shot out of the coyote's hand in "Coyote Lovely" (S04E08). Since Archer was using a Barrett M82, it's a bit unrealistic that the revolver is still in one piece.
Smith & Wesson Model 686
Two border guards use what appear to be Smith & Wesson Model 686s with six inch barrels and rubber grips in "Coyote Lovely" (S04E08). Archer refers to them as "Ruger 6"s, despite not resembling any known Ruger revolver. The US Border Patrol had at one time issued Ruger Security Six revolvers before switching to semi-autos.
Smith & Wesson Model 686 6" Barrel - .357 Magnum
The border guards with their S&W 686s in "Coyote Lovely" (S04E08). Note while both of these officers have their holsters on their left side, they still appear to be right-handed.
The revolvers seem to be missing details like cylinder releases and ejector rods.
North Korean agents use Tokarev TT-33s in "The Honeymooners" (S04E09). Lana refers to them as "Tokarevs."
Tokarev TT-33 - 7.62x25mm Tokarev
A Moroccan agent is seen with a pair of SIG-Sauer P226s in shoulder holsters in "Un Chien Tangerine" (S04E10). He never does pull either one of them out however.
Factory black (K-Kote) SIG-Sauer P226 pistol - 9x19mm
The agent with his pair of P226s in twin shoulder holsters.
The agent at a checkpoint.
Lana Kane is often seen with a pair of TEC-9's, which would be a good fit for her Johnny Bench-ian, steam-shovelly, Truckasaurus hands.
"TEC-9s are awesome! Wait, how did I know these are called TEC-9s?"
("Fugue and Riffs" (S04E01))
Lana and Archer each with a TEC-9 in "Fugue and Riffs" (S04E01).
Archer with a TEC-9 in "Fugue and Riffs" (S04E01).
Lana affixes a suppressor to one of her TEC-9s in "The Wind Cries Mary (S04E02).
Mercedes Moreno with a TEC-9 in "Coyote Lovely" (S04E08).
Archer fires Lana's TEC-9 in "Un Chien Tangerine" (S04E10).
KGB agents use MAC-10 SMGs in "Fugue and Riffs" (S04E01).
Ingram MAC-10 open bolt submachine gun - .45 ACP
Just how often do you see an animated
character wince while shooting?
The KGB agents reload their MAC-10s in "Fugue and Riffs" (S04E01).
Heckler & Koch MP5A4
Archer has a pair of Heckler & Koch MP5A4s in his El Camino. Armory officer Rodney refers to them as "H&K MP5s" in "The Wind Cries Mary" (S04E02). In a continuity error, they later turn into MP5A5s, see below.
Heckler & Koch MP5A4 - 9x19mm
The MP5A4s in the back of the El Camino.
Heckler & Koch MP5A5
Archer uses a Heckler & Koch MP5A5 in "The Wind Cries Mary" (S04E02). This is a continuity error since they were MP5A4s when seen in his El Camino. Fake Swiss guard are seen using them in "Papal Chase" (S04E11). Lana refers to them as "MP5s." Krieger is seen modifying one in "Sea Tunt: Part 2" (S04E13).
Heckler & Koch MP5A5 - 9x19mm
"Okay, so, don't really know what to make of that, unless..."
"Wait, no no no, get that out of your head. Predator
only hunts in tropical jungle. I assume. And desperately hope..."
The fake Swiss Guard open fire with their MP5s in "Papal Chase" (S04E11). Note how the fire selector is actually on the wrong side.
The fire selectors are now on the right side, which is how we can see that the MP5s are firing while the safeties are still on.
Krieger modding an MP5A5 while high as a kite and working on "YYZ" in "Sea Tunt: Part 2" (S04E13). Note the fire selector is on the wrong side (or is an ambi Navy group), and it appears to have two stocks, presumably as a result of Krieger's "tinkering".
North Korean agents use PPSh-41s in "The Honeymooners" (S04E09). Lana commandeers one at one point. She correctly identifies them as "Shpagin 41 submachine guns." Since they're used by North Koreans and are only shown with drum magazines, they could easily be the North Korean Type-49 copy, which can only use the drum magazine.
Soviet PPSh-41 Submachine Gun - 7.62x25mm Tokarev
The North Korean agents open fire with their PPSh-41s.
Lana commandeers one of the PPSh-41s.
The AK-47 shows up numerous times during the series. They appear to be based on real AK-47s, with the milled receiver and open-topped front sight.
Type II AK-47 - 7.62x39mm
Type III AK-47 - 7.62x39mm
An AK-47 is among the weapons from the ISIS armoury being sold by Krieger
Turkmen tribesmen with AK surround Cyril in "Once Bitten" (S04E06).
"Hey check it out Fred and Barney, we're at the Water Buffalo Club!" (S04E06)
A Moroccan agent fires his AK-47 in "Un Chien Tangerine" (S04E10). Due to an animation error, there is no bolt modeled and the lightening cut in the side of the lower receiver opens and closes as a bolt instead.
An Aim-Down-Sights shot of the AK as Archer tracks the last Moraccan agent in "Un Chien Tangerine" (S04E10).
Archer with the AK-47 in "Un Chien Tangerine" (S04E10). It looks a bit distorted.
Springfield Armory M1A
Lukas Troy uses a scoped Springfield Armory M1A in "The Wind Cries Mary" (S04E02).
Springfield Armory M1A - 7.62x51mm (.308 Winchester)
Lucas takes aim at Lana and Cyril.
Note the lack of either the selector switch or the notch for one.
Archer uses a Barrett M82 fitted with a suppressor to shoot the engine block of a truck in "Coyote Lovely" (S4E8).
"Big whoop. I'm spooning a Barrett .50 cal. I could kill a building."
"Ow, apologize to my tinnitus!"
Hired gunmen use a Mossberg 500 with a magazine extension to run Archer's stepfather off the road in "Midnight Ron" (S04E04). A border guard is armed with one in "Coyote Lovely" (S04E08).

Ron Cadillac is seen with a Browning M2HB when he and his gang steal an M4 Sherman in a flashback in "Midnight Ron" (S04E04).
A young Ron Kazinsky with the M2.
The M2 atop of the Sherman.
The purloined M4 Sherman has a hull-mounted Browning M1919A4 in "Midnight Ron" (S04E03).
Browning M1919A4 - .30-06 Springfield
The hull-mounted M1919A4 is seen here.
Archer requisitions an RPG-7 in "Legs" (S04E03).
"And one RPG-7 and two grenade, as per the note from your mother
Archer threatens Rodney with the RPG, which is not an advisable move, in "Legs" (S04E03).
Mk 2 Hand Grenades
Mk 2 Hand Grenades are seen in "Coyote Lovely" (S04E08).
Mk 2 "Pineapple" High-Explosive Fragmentation hand grenade
Lana drops the "baby," which consists of two TEC-9s and three Mk 2s.
Archer takes a Mk 2 away from Lupe.
Nerve Gas Canisters
Krieger mentions nerve gas canisters he hid in the air ducts, and offers to release them in the office. Lana finds one while trying to get out of the ISIS vault, and another is seen while Archer is crawling through the ducts.
A nerve gas canister seen in "Legs" (S04E03).
"Holy shit there really are nerve gas canisters up here. I thought that was a joke." (S04E05)
Archer pulls out a grapple gun in "Legs" (S04E03). It appears to be a smaller version of his grapple gun in the pilot.
"Mark 28 hydrogen bomb"
Malory orders ISIS to recover a "Mark 28 hydrogen bomb" from the ocean floor. While the Mark 28/B28 is a real hydrogen bomb, and some were famously lost on the ocean floor, the image presented in the episode does not actually resemble a real Mark 28.
Although the specs appear correct, the image is not, especially if that is supposed to be a B28FI
. It appears to be an image of "Little Boy," the gun-type fission device dropped on Hiroshima in 1945.
