From Russia with Love
The following weapons were used in the film From Russia with Love:
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.
Grant (Robert Shaw) carries a Mauser C96, most notably during the gypsy shootout, using it to kill a Bulgarian about to kill Bond.
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.
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 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.
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.
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
SPECTRE trainees at the boot camp and rifle range use Armalite AR-10s, among other weapons.
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.
The third rifle is in a target configuration, but again, this is only dimly visible.
SPECTRE trainees at the boot camp and rifle range also use .303 Bren guns.
An MG42 with a deployed mounted bipod is seen vertically stacked on a gun rack as Klebb inspects the training camp.
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.
One of the SPECTRE trainees at the boot camp is also seen with a custom flamethrower.
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.
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.
