Bruni/BBM "ME-8 Police"

Thanks to a continuity break, Blade's (Roger Daltrey) Tanfoglio GT is briefly replaced by a different gun, a stainless Bruni/BBM "ME-8 Police" blank-firing prop gun, in the shot where he attempts to retrieve it after it is knocked from his hand by Ilsa. At the climax, Ilsa is seen shooting a "ME-8 Police", probably the same one taken from Blade when she killed him.

Desert Eagle Mark I

A silenced Desert Eagle Mark I fitted with a red dot sight is used by Zigesfeld (Tom Rack) at the airport. It looks as though it is slightly out of battery.

Beretta 92FS

Kelly (Travis Swords) when driving the French Club bus first uses the Beretta 92FS with a silencer to kill the previous "bus driver" hired to hijack the French Class. A Beretta 92F is used by Richard Grieco for movie promotional shots as well.

Beretta 92FS - 9x19mm.
Kelly conceals the Beretta from view by holding it against his thigh as the bus approaches a police car. Apologies for the dark screenshot, but this is the best it looked even on the DVD.

Beretta 92FS Inox

Two of Steranko's henchmen hold Corben at gunpoint outside the casino with Beretta 92FS Inox handguns.

Machine Guns

SAAB Machine Guns

Zigesfeld's (Tom Rack) black SAAB 900 Turbo has machine guns that pop out from behind the license plate. However these appear to merely be hollow tubes installed by the prop department.

The gun barrels emerge from behind the license plate when it flips down.



An M72 LAW is used by Zigesfeld (Tom Rack) when he is sent to kill Corben at his hotel. He only succeeds in blowing up femme fatale Areola Canasta, though.
