Straight Shooter is a 1999 German action thriller. A German who is a former French Foreign Legion sniper starts terror against politicians and industrialists whom he blames for the death of his daughter after the nuclear power station incident. Now the only man who can stop the Straight Shooter is his former instructor and commander.

The following weapons are seen in the movie Straight Shooter:


Walther P99

A suppressed Walther P99 is used by Volker Bretz (Heino Ferch) in several scenes.

M1911-style pistol

In the flashback scene Frank Hector (Dennis Hopper) fires an M1911-style pistol at an African rebel.

Various handguns

Various characters are seen with pistols.

A pistol is seen in the holster of a bodyguard. The shape of the grip matches Beretta 92F but but it's not enough to identify the pistol for sure.
A member of a counter-terrorism unit holds a revolver. It is seen very blurry. The revolver resembles Smith & Wesson Model 66.

Submachine Guns

Heckler & Koch MP5

In the final scene several members of a counter-terrorism unit are armed with Heckler & Koch MP5 submachine guns. The stock is never seen so it's hard to identify if it is A1 or A3.

Unidentified SMG

A member of a counter-terrorism unit on the top of the stairs holds some compact SMG with a front grip (maybe a Steyr TMP). The weapon is fitted with some device, supposedly a laser sight.

Sniper Rifles

Mauser SR-93

The first weapon used by Volker Bretz (Heino Ferch) is a sniper rifle that appeares to be a Mauser SR-93. In the movie it is called an FR F2 in 7.5 mm caliber (which is is incorrect because FR F2 was chambered for 7.62x51 mm while a 7.5x54 mm rifle was MAS FR F1).
