American Psycho is a 2000 horror film directed and written by Mary Harron and based on Bret Easton Ellis's 1991 novel with the same name. The movie stars Christian Bale as Patrick Bateman, a New York City banker who leads a double life as a serial killer. The film was released theatrically on April 14, 2000. A direct-to-video sequel, American Psycho 2, was released in 2002, although it has little relation to the original.

The following weapons were used in the film American Psycho:



Glock 17

Patrick Bateman (Christian Bale) takes out a Glock 17 (most likely a 2nd Generation variant standing in for the Gen 1) from under his coat to execute the kitten at the ATM, but is stopped by a random woman (Joyce R. Korbin). An enraged Patrick kills her, attracting attention of the police. During the chase, he shoots the police, exploding their car. After the massacre of the police, Bateman enters the office building and kills the security guard and the janitor.

1st Note: In the novel, Bateman uses a ".357 Magnum" kept in a holster, which he later attaches a suppressor to. Suppressors generally don't work on revolvers, as Bateman soon finds out, when he kills a homeless man with it and, not realizing the ineffectiveness of a suppressed revolver, the gunshot nearly deafens him.

2nd Note: the Glock 17 used is most likely to be the Gen 2 variant standing in for the Gen 1 variant (which was imported to the USA in 1986), if it's truly the Gen 2 variant, then it's slightly anachronistic since the film takes place in 1986-1987 and the Gen 2 variant was introduced a year later in 1988. Though this shouldn't be taken seriously, since the whole sequence is most likely his imagination, given the police cars' explosion.

2nd Generation Glock 17 - 9x19mm
Patrick takes out the Glock.....
.....and points it at the kitten. Note the longer dust cover than the 19.
Patrick Bateman (Christian Bale) shoots a woman at an ATM.
When the police block his way, Bateman suddenly opens fire.
He looks down at his gun in surprise as both patrol cars explode after several shots. This most likely confirms that the shooting and massacre of New Yorkers did not actually happen, but only in Patrick's head.
Glock "Non Gun"
After this Bateman enters the office and shoots a desk guard.
Having already left the building, he notices an janitor and returns to kill him too. Note the flash from a Non Gun.

Remington 870 Compact

Patrick Bateman keeps a Remington 870 Compact with a pistol grip in his kitchen weapons cabinet, which is seen when he retrieves duct tape from it when his secretary Jean (Chloë Sevigny) is over at his apartment.
