Glock 34 (TTI Combat Master Package)
At the Continental's armory, Wick initially picks up a Glock 34 customized with the Taran Tactical Innovations Combat Master Package; he used this version in the previous film. Charon then suggests him to use the TTI STI 2011 mentioned below.

Heckler & Koch P30L
Like in the two previous movies, Wick uses a Heckler & Koch P30L, but this time without a compensator. He only uses it at the start of the film, when he takes it from an assassin while on horseback. Much later, Charon (Lance Reddick) and some guards use P30L pistols during the Continental shootout.

Behind the scenes footage confirms that the pistol used by Wick is a P30L.

Walther PPQ pistols are used by assassins at the start of the film. Wick (John Wick) briefly commandeers one during a fight. Much later, Zero (Mark Dacascos) wields what appears to be a PPQ fitted with a compensator in New York.

When John Wick enters the antique weapons museum at the start of the film, he picks up a Remington 1875 and tries to load a .44-40 cartridge into it, but fails. He then takes another Remington 1875, removes the cylinder from it, detaches the barrel from the frame and takes off the hammer. After removing parts from the two revolvers mentioned below, he takes the cylinder of the first Remington and loads it into this one, then attaches the Colt 1851 Navy's barrel and the 1860 Army's hammer to its frame. He eventually succeeds in loading the .44-40 cartridge into his frankenrevolver and takes an assassin down.
The film appears to tip its hat to The Good, the Bad and the Ugly, specifically a scene featuring Eli Wallach and his portrayal of "the Ugly" aka Tuco. The latter demonstrates that despite his rough and drunken appearance, he actually possesses advanced skills as a gunfighter when he disassembles what appear to be 3 separate Colt Navy revolvers to assemble one perfected FrankenColt handgun. Fans of the 1960s western should appreciate the clear tribute to a film that explored the ethos of the gunfighter in a depth that was ahead of its time.

PTR 9CTs with full-auto sear packs and SBT5A stabilizing braces are used in the film. They are first seen in the hands of some of the Bowery King's henchmen at the start. Much later, the heavily armored High Table enforcers use suppressed ones at the NYC Continental.

This specific PTR 9CT has the SBT5A brace mount, but with the brace itself removed (even though it was actually present in a previous shot). This was likely done to facilitate the actor's stance while Wick uses the character as a human shield.
Moroccan guards are seen with SIG-Sauer MPX submachine guns. Sofia (Halle Berry) later picks up an MPX and briefly uses it.

SIG-Sauer MPX Copperhead
Some guards in Casablanca are seen wielding prototype versions of the SIG-Sauer MPX Copperhead, fitted with ROMEO4T sights, Inforce APL Gen 3 weaponlights, Magpul vertical grips, and ZR Tactical telescoping stocks. Wick (Keanu Reeves) takes one and uses it.

Some of the Berbers carry AR-15 variants fitted with BCM KMR handguards, ACOG scopes, weaponlights, VLTOR EMOD stocks, Magpul AFG foregrips, and Magpul PMAGs. Another AR-15 was also used, fitted with a Geissele Super Modular Rail handguard, Streamlight weaponlight, vertical foregrip, and suppressor.

Benelli M2 Super 90 (TTI M2 Ultimate 3 Gun Package)
Wick uses a Benelli M2 Super 90 customized by Taran Tactical during the Continental shootout. Notably, Wick performs several dual and quad loads during the shootout to quickly reload his shotgun. This is a competition reload technique, and is another indication of the film series' influences from competition shooting.

heavy machine guns are first seen, along with a cannon.
Note the Sterling
submachine gun in the glass case, as well as muzzleloaders and revolvers. There is a ZB-30
light machine gun on a table at the right.
More muzzleloaders including a blunderbuss, a wheellock pistol and a queen Anne pistol are seen.
The Bowery King's Armory
The weapons cache of the Bowery King (Laurence Fishburne) contains various weapons.
The left glass case contains some firearms including what appears to be a SIG-Sauer SIG556
. There is TAR-21
in the middle case, and at the top right there are two PTR 9CTs with SBT5A braces.

Multiple firearms are seen at the New York Continental's armory.
Winston, Wick and Charon enter the armory.
The two aforementioned PTR rifles are seen on the right. The top one appears to be a PTR PDWR fitted with a stabilizing brace, while the bottom one seems to be a PTR 32P PDWR with an MFT Battlelink Minimalist stock.
There are some AK variants (including an AKMSU
) next to Winston, as well as a bullpup rifle, two Kel-Tec KSG
shotguns, two CMMG Mk47 Banshee
carbines, and another Battle Arms Development Paratrooper.
A multitude of weapons were seen in an earlier poster for the film.
Behind the Scenes
According to Xtreme Props, a Hudson H9 and a Glock 17 with a Polymer80 frame and LANTAC Razorback slide were used for the Casablanca scenes. However, it is unknown if these guns made it to the final cut, due to the distance, low lighting and fast-paced action of the scenes, in which the majority of the pistols were standard Glocks.
