The Usual Suspects (1995)

The following weapons were used in the film The Usual Suspects:



Browning Hi-Power Mk. III

The Browning Hi-Power Mk. III is the unofficial star of The Usual Suspects. Nearly every handgun depicted in the film is either a Mk. III or original Browning Hi-Power. All of the main cast use one at some point in the film, though McManus (Stephen Baldwin) definitely has the most memorable scenes with it. McManus has a sound suppressor fixed to his when the group confronts Kobayashi about the job they received. He amazingly kills two men in a half a second when he is in the elevator shaft.

Colt Detective Special

NYPD detectives are wielding Colt Detective Specials when McManus (Stephen Baldwin) is arrested by during the film's intro. The entire montage of arrests is conducted with NYPD officers and detectives using Colt Detective Specials. It appears most detectives in the film are equipped with this small revolver.

SIG-Sauer P228

The SIG-Sauer P228 makes a brief appearance in the film, as it pulled by the companion of Saul Berg (Carl Bressler) the heroin dealer, who is reluctant to part with his product. The SIG is seen being kicked away to McManus, but in a continuity error, McManus is seen picking up another Browning HP. Verbal Kint (Kevin Spacey) eventually settles the dispute with his Hi-Power.

Smith & Wesson 6906

A Smith & Wesson 6906 is used during the climactic Hungarian Ship sequence near the end of the film. During an explanation of the events, the pistol is seen in the hands of different characters, depending on whose version of the story is being shown. The handgun is shown wielded by Dean Keaton (Gabriel Byrne) when Customs Agent Kujan (Chazz Palminteri) hypothesizes that Keaton is the legendary "Keyser Soze". When Verbal Kint (Kevin Spacey) relates the tale, an unseen figure portraying Keyser Soze uses it to shoot Keaton (Gabriel Byrne). A Smith & Wesson 6906 is seen again, used by a man guarding the Hungarian's Informant.

Submachine Guns

Heckler & Koch HK94A3 (chopped and converted)

The submachine gun used by several members of the robbery crew is the Heckler & Koch HK94A3 collapsing stock civilian guns with 16" barrels chopped and converted to resemble MP5A3s and fitted with Surefire light dedicated forends. They can be noted as HK94s instead of MP5A3s because of the lack of barrel lugs, a push-pin set and the lack of a paddle magazine release behind the magazine. The weapon appears throughout the climactic final battle of the film, in the hands of McManus (Stephen Baldwin), Hockney (Kevin Pollak), and Verbal (Kevin Spacey). Hockney bluffs his way past a guard using one, and extends his stock to fire. McManus primarily fires his from the hip, whereas Verbal never uses his at all.

Steyr SPP

Many of the Hungarians besieged on their ship carry a variety of interesting firearms, including what appear to be a selection of Steyr SPPs.

Steyr HBAR-T

McManus (Stephen Baldwin) uses a Steyr HBAR-T(the "T" in the name is indicative of the fact the standard 1.5x scope has been removed and a scope mount, allowing the use of higher powered optics, has been put in its place), which is the designated marksman version of the standard AUG, to assist Keaton (Gabriel Byrne) in killing several Hungarian sailors standing on the docks near a doomed vessel.

Ruger Mini-14

Thugs employed by Redfoot (Peter Greene) all carry Ruger Mini-14s. These rifles only appear in defense of Redfoot when he and Keaton (Gabriel Byrne) and his crew almost come to blows.
