The following weapons were used in the film From Russia with Love:


Walther PPK

James Bond (Sean Connery) carries a Walther PPK in .32 ACP as his personal sidearm. Kerim Bey (Pedro Armendariz), head of MI-6's "Station T" in Turkey, also carries a PPK. Donald "Red" Grant (Robert Shaw) takes Bond's PPK and holds it on him on the Orient Express. Some Soviet agents also use it, perhaps because Makarov PM's weren't available for the film.

Mauser C96

Walther P38

A guard at the Soviet consulate fires a Walther P38 during Bond's attack, but Bond stops him during a small struggle. Another alleged P38 can be seen at the shooting range.

Llama Model XVIII

Grant pulls a Spanish Llama Model XVIII .25 calibre pistol from an ankle holster and uses it to intimidate Bond on the Orient Express. Rosa Klebb (Lotte Lenya) draws a Llama Model XVIII pistol with pearl grips during her last-ditch attempt to steal the Lektor from Bond's hotel room. After killing her, Tatiana Romanova (Daniela Bianchi) holds Klebb's Llama.

Beretta Model 418

Tatiana Romanova (Daniela Bianchi) picks up Rosa Klebb's dropped gun, that has now become a .25 ACP Beretta Model 418 pistol with pearl grips, and uses it to kill Klebb and save Bond.

Trivia: In the early novels, James Bond's sidearm was a Beretta Model 418. In the novel "From Russia with Love" it gets caught in Bond's clothing, which nearly costs him his life. In the following novel, "Dr. No", M forces Bond to switch to a new weapon: the Walther PPK.

Gunpowder visible after Tanya fired the Beretta. Tatiana (Daniela Bianchi) is seen flinching in this picture. An appropriate reaction for a character who has never fired guns before.

Luger P08 (probable)

In a brief shot at the SPECTRE training camp a pistol which resembles a Luger P08 is seen stacked on a rack.

The P08 placed on the rack in the center. The classic protruding lugs on the Luger P08's receiver is barely visible.

Submachine Guns


The SPECTRE guards on Blofeld's boat carry MP40s, as do the SPECTRE assassins sent to kill Bond via helicopter or boat. Morzeny (Walter Gotell) leads a boat full of MP40-wielding gunmen.

Thompson M1921

One of the SPECTRE trainees is reloading a Thompson M1921 as Klebb and Morzeny walk past. Several others can be seen at a rack in front of training station #1. They all have missing Cutts compensators, combined with vertical grips and box-shaped rear sights, which likely makes them an early Model 1921.

Lanchester Mk. I*

A Lanchester Mk. I* can also be spotted at the firing range.

12 Gauge Double Barreled Shotgun

What appears to be a 12 Gauge Double Barreled Shotgun with sawed-off barrels is seen at the firing range.

Armalite AR-7

Bond uses an Armalite AR-7 survival rifle with a custom suppressor and infra-red scope, issued to him by Q, to assassinate Krilencu. Kerim Bey (Pedro Armendariz) eventually does the shooting. Q mistakenly reports the rifle to be .25 caliber, while it actually fires a .22 Long Rifle cartridge.

  • Note: It is quite possible that Q has modified a normal Armalite AR-7 to accept .25 ACP cartridges

Armalite AR-10

SPECTRE trainees at the boot camp and rifle range use Armalite AR-10s, among other weapons.

Eugene Stoner AR-10 prototype 7.62x51mm NATO
The AR-10 can be seen as Klebb, Morzeny and Rhoda walk through the training facility. It is identifiable (as opposed to it's more popular cousin M16) by it's charging handle which is on top of the weapon and below the carrying handle.

Mauser Karabiner 98k

Mauser Karabiner 98k rifles were seen in the hands of SPECTRE guards at SPECTRE island. Mauser Karabiner 98k rifles were also seen in the hands of both the Gypsies and the Bulgarian agents later in the film.

L1A1 Self Loading Rifle

An L1A1 Self Loading Rifle was seen on a gun rack at SPECTRE's boot camp and rifle range.

Lee-Enfield No.4 & Energa Rifle Grenade

SPECTRE agents use what appear to be mocked-up or dummy Energa rifle grenades (designated by the British as Grenade, Rifle, A tk, No. 94 Mk. 1, and by the US Military as M28) attached to Lee-Enfield No.4 rifles.

Unknown Sporting Rifles

Three sporterized or sporting rifles can be seen at the shooting range. Two of them generally resemble the Winchester 70, but it is difficult to make a more accurate identification.

Pre-1964 Winchester Model 70 - .30-06
The rifle can be seen bottom the L1A1.

The third rifle is in a target configuration, but again, this is only dimly visible.

Machine Guns

Bren gun

SPECTRE trainees at the boot camp and rifle range also use .303 Bren guns.

Bren .303 caliber
Two Bren guns can be seen here: one resting on the fence and the trainee on the right fires a Bren.


An MG42 with a deployed mounted bipod is seen vertically stacked on a gun rack as Klebb inspects the training camp.

MG42 Machine Gun - 7.92x57mm Mauser
The stacked MG42 is seen on the rack just right of the muscled henchman. Note the bipod is mounted in the center of the MG as opposed to the more common barrel mounting.


Webley & Scott No. 1 Mk. III* Signal Pistol

Bond uses a Webley & Scott No. 1 Mk. III* Signal Pistol to ignite fuel drums during the boat chase.

Walther LP-53 air pistol

Sean Connery holds a Walther LP-53 air pistol in all promotional shots for the film. It is not a real model firearm, just an air pistol.

Walther LP-53 Air Pistol

When the prop Walther PPK didn't show up for David Hurn's photo shoot of the actors, he provided his own Walther air pistol with the barrel airbrushed out on American posters. The original pistol recently sold in auction for US$439,000.(http://www.thedeadbolt.com/news/109247/james_bond_gun_christies_auction_news.php)

Gun Barrel opening sequence

Again, as in Dr. No we can see Bond shooting his Walther PPK at someone holding a Smith & Wesson revolver, from the point of view of the inside of the barrel. Again, it's not Sean Connery, it's Bob Simmons, whom we see in this scene. It's need to be noted, that sequence is not 100% identical to the one in Dr. No.

James Bond (Bob Simmons) just shot another enemy with his Walther PPK.
