Goldfinger is the third entry in the official James Bond film series. The 1964 sequel follows Bond (Sean Connery) as he assigned to investigate the smuggling of Nazi gold. In the course of his investigation, he stumbles upon a plot to destroy the US gold reserves in Fort Knox that appears to be orchestrated by a wealthy magnate who is obsessed with owning the precious metal. The film was the first blockbuster in the series and would set the tone for the majority of the films to follow.
The following weapons were used in the film Goldfinger:
WARNING! THIS PAGE CONTAINS SPOILERS!
James Bond (Sean Connery) keeps a brown-gripped .32 ACP Walther PPK in his shoulder holster, seen most prominently when a Cuban hitman, "Capungo" (Alf Joint, one of Sean Connery's stunt doubles), tries to grab it during the pre-credits sequence. The film marks the first time Bond does not fire a single round from his trademark weapon. Trivia: Capungo is not the name - it's frequently used as a synonym for the word "hitman" in Spanish-speaking countries, particularly Mexico and Cuba. In the original novel by Ian Fleming Capungo was killed by Bond by just a single kick to his neck.
During the pre-credits sequence, the South American heroin factory guard Bond knocks out has a Luger P08 in his holster.
Smith & Wesson Model 10
One of Goldfinger's guards fires a Smith & Wesson Model 10 with a 3" barrel at Bond and Tilly during the chase.
When Bond (Sean Connery) first engages Goldfinger's men in a gunfight outside Goldfinger's Geneva factory, he fires a Walther P38 at them rather than his usual PPK, presumably from the under seat concealed firearm drawer (seen in publicity stills and films). Several of Auric Goldfinger's guards can be seen carrying Walther P38s as their sidearms, one of which Bond also manages to commandeer before having to hand it back over to Pussy Galore (Honor Blackman).
Smith & Wesson Model 36
One of the Goldfinger's guards who sits next to Bond in his Aston Martin holds a Smith & Wesson Model 36 on him. In a continuity error, it later becomes a Walther P38.
Smith & Wesson Model 22
Pussy Galore (Honor Blackman) is seen holding a Smith & Wesson Model 22 revolver while flying to the United States. Bond correctly identifies the revolver as a "Smith & Wesson .45" and adds that a bullet fired from the gun would pass through him and the plane.
Colt Police Positive
One of Goldfinger's guards with Pussy Galore holds a Colt Police Positive on Bond.
Oddjob (Harold Sakata) uses a suppressed M1911A1 to kill Solo (Martin Benson) while driving him to the airport in the Lincoln. This pistol is also used by US Army soldiers.
Colt Official Police
During the raid on Fort Knox, Auric Goldfinger (Gert Fröbe) can be seen carrying a Colt Official Police revolver with a gold-plated finish and ivory grips while disguised as a U.S. Army Colonel, even using it to shoot at Mr. Ling (Burt Kwouk). Note: In the novel, Goldfinger uses a Gold-plated Colt Model 1908 Vest Pocket and killed his victims with one shot through the right eye.
Goldfinger's guards carry MP40s, using them in most major gunfights of the film, with even Goldfinger himself using one briefly during the Fort Knox raid. This gun is also being tested on a bulletproof vest in Q's lab. The old lady working as a gatekeeper to Goldfinger's facility in Switzerland also carries an MP40.
Some of the U.S. Army soldiers at Fort Knox attack Goldfinger and his men with older M1928 Thompsons with drum magazines and vertical foregrips. Note the switch from M14s (below, likely filmed in U.S.) to WWII era Thompson and M1 Carbines, most likely because the Fort Knox set was built in England and at the time (1964) M14s weren't readily available to UK armourers.
U.S. Army soldiers carry M1928A1 Thompsons during the gunfight with Goldfinger's men at Fort Knox.
In a very brief shot during the storming of the Fort Knox vault, an American soldier is seen firing a British Sterling submachine gun. Though the scene is brief, the weapon shown has at least two of the trademarks of the Sterling including the horizontal magazine and the sling mount very close to the barrel. The interior scenes of the Fort Knox vault was filmed in England with access to British weapons.
Tilly Masterson (Tania Mallet) is seen twice using a scoped Armalite AR-7 rifle to try to shoot Goldfinger. The same model rifle was used by Bond in From Russia with Love.
U.S. Army soldiers at Fort Knox were seen with M14 rifles slung over their shoulders before Fort Knox was hit with fake knock-out gas by Pussy Galore's crew.
U.S. Army soldiers can be seen carrying M1 Carbines during the gas raid on Fort Knox. They are WWII Carbines judging by the darker wood walnut stock and lack of a bayonet lug.
Goldfinger's men carry Karabiner 98k rifles during their raid on Fort Knox.
A number of U.S. Army soldiers were seen with M1 Garand rifles when they were raiding the gold depository at Fort Knox.
What appears to be a Browning M2 aircraft gun mounted on a tripod is seen just outside the vault entrance in Fort Knox. The MG is never used on screen.
Aston Martin machine guns
Q tells Bond about the machine guns installed underneath the lights of his customized Aston Martin DB5, which Bond uses during a car chase at Goldfinger's factory in Geneva.
Palmer Cap-Chur Model 60 Short Range Projector.
Bond is put to sleep by what is obviously a tranquilizer dart. It is fired from an air gun.
When Bond visits Q's lab, a wall of weapons can be seen behind the assistant testing the ballistic vest.

A Luger P08 Artillery is visible on the top left corner of the wall.
A Mauser C96 with a stock attachment is visible under the Luger P08 Artillery.
A Browning Hi-Power is visible underneath the Mauser C96.

On the top of the center column is a Single Action Army with a 7.5" long "Cavalry" model barrel.
Smith & Wesson Model 10
A Smith & Wesson Model 10 is seen underneath the Single Action Army. These were used in the film by some of Goldfinger's henchmen.
Webley Mk VI
A Webley Mk VI can be seen under the S&W Model 10.
S&W Hand Ejector
Under the Webley is what seems to be a short barreled S&W Hand Ejector.
Webley Mk IV
Underneath the Hand Ejector is what seems to be a Webley Mk IV.
A Nagant M1895 revolver is also visible on the wall.
Colt Official Police
The last revolver seen on the wall looks to be a short barreled Colt Official Police.
Lee Enfield No.1 Mk.III
A Lee Enfield No.1 Mk.III rifle is seen on the top of the wall.
Winchester Model 70
A Winchester Model 70 can be seen under the SMLE.
A Karabiner 98k is visible as the third rifle down. These were used in the film by Goldfinger's men at Fort Knox.
Underneath the Karabiner is an M1 Garand.
Winchester Model 1912
A shotgun that appears to be a Winchester Model 1912 is underneath the M1 Garand on the wall.
Lee Enfield No.4 Mk.I
A Lee Enfield No.4 Mk.I is seen on the bottom of the wall.
Vickers Machine gun
The last weapon seen alongside the wall is a Vickers machine gun.
Gun barrel opening sequence
This film was the third and last in which Bond was played not by the main actor in the Gun Barrel sequence; again, it was stuntman Bob Simmons. The sequence is slightly different from what was seen in Dr. No and From Russia with Love but it utilized the same Smith & Wesson revolver barrel.
"The Guns of James Bond" Featurette
A short clip originally shown on the BBC and later put into the ultimate edition DVD special features of Dr. No titled "The Guns of James Bond," shows Sean Connery on the set of Goldfinger along with Geoffrey Boothroyd, a Scottish firearms expert who collaborated with Ian Fleming during the novels and convinced Fleming to make the switch from the Beretta to the Walther PPK. Fleming as a token of appreciation, had Major Boothroyd or "Q" named after him.
An extra playing the role of a US soldier on the Fort Knox set can be seen with an M1 Carbine.
An extra playing the role of a US soldier on the Fort Knox set can be seen walking across the screen holding an M1928 Thompson.
Sean Connery can be seen holding a M1934 Beretta in the clip.
Boothroyd can be seen demonstrating a Beretta Model 71 later in the clip.
After shooting the Beretta, Boothroyd shoots the Walther PPK to compare it to the previous pistol.
After shooting both pistols, Boothroyd shoots his personal favorite, the Ruger Blackhawk in .44 Magnum and describes it as a "man sized gun" but being impractical for Bond due to the barrel length and large recoil.
When demonstrating various types of holsters Boothroyd used a Walther P38 to show how a holster made of soft leather may get caught on the gun.
When Boothroyd is introducing himself an unidentified revolver can be seen in his hand. Shortly after, Boothroyd gives an example of a shoulder holster and an unkown revolver is seen inside.
Diana 5 Air Pistol
In one demonstration Boothroyd uses a Diana 5 air pistol to light up a match on a makeshift shooting range the other side of the room he is in.
