Heckler & Koch P30L
Like in the two previous movies, John Wick (Keanu Reeves) uses a Heckler & Koch P30L, but this time without a compensator. He only uses it at the start of the film, when he takes it from an assassin in the stable. At least one Ruska Roma member is armed with the gun during the Zero's attack on the Tarkovsky Theater. After the deconsecration of the NYC Continental, Charon (Lance Reddick) and some Continental guards use P30L pistols during the shootout.

Colt Model 1903 Pocket Hammerless
Winston (Ian McShane) offers John (Keanu Reeves) to shoot him for The Elder with the rather ornate Colt Model 1903 Pocket Hammerless. After refusing, John returns the gun to Winston, who uses it in the final scene on The Continental roof.

The gun is seen closer as Zahir helps John cauterize the wound.
When John Wick (Keanu Reeves) enters the antique weapons museum at the start of the film, he picks up a Remington 1875 and tries to load a .44-40 cartridge into it, but fails. He then takes another Remington 1875, removes the cylinder from it, detaches the barrel from the frame and takes off the hammer. After removing parts from the two revolvers mentioned below, he takes the cylinder of the first Remington and loads it into this one, then attaches the Colt 1851 Navy's barrel and the 1860 Army's hammer to its frame. He eventually succeeds in loading the .44-40 cartridge into his frankenrevolver and takes an assassin down.
The film appears to tip its hat to The Good, the Bad and the Ugly, specifically a scene featuring Eli Wallach and his portrayal of "the Ugly" aka Tuco. The latter demonstrates that despite his rough and drunken appearance, he actually possesses advanced skills as a gunfighter when he disassembles what appear to be 3 separate Colt Navy revolvers to assemble one perfected FrankenColt handgun. Fans of the 1960s western should appreciate the clear tribute to a film that explored the ethos of the gunfighter in a depth that was ahead of its time.

Casablanca mint guards are mostly armed with SIG-Sauer MPX submachine guns, with some of them fitted with SIG-Sauer ROMEO3 reflex sights, Magpul AFG foregrips, and TTI base pads. During the firefight Sofia Al-Azwar (Halle Berry) picks up one of it and briefly uses it.

PTR 9CTs with full-auto sear packs and SBT5A stabilizing braces are used by some of the Bowery King's henchmen at the beginning of the movie. After the deconsecration of the NYC Continental, the heavily armored High Table enforcers are also armed with suppressed PTR 9CT with flashlights and red dot sights.

This specific PTR 9CT has the SBT5A brace mount, but with the brace itself removed (even though it was actually present in a previous shot). This was likely done to facilitate the actor's stance while Wick uses the character as a human shield.

John Wick (Keanu Reeves) uses a Benelli M2 Super 90 customized by Taran Tactical during the New York Continental siege. Notably, Wick performs several dual and quad loads during the shootout to quickly reload his shotgun.
