The following weapons were used in Season 3 of the television series Line of Duty:


Glock 17

Central Police Strategic Firearms Command officers carry the Glock 17 as their sidearm, including Sgt. Danny Waldron (Daniel Mays), PC Rod Kennedy (Will Mellor), PC Hairnderpal "Hari" Bains (Arsher Ali), PC Jackie Brickford (Leanne Best) and DC Kate Fleming (Vicky McClure) whilst undercover as PC Kate Francis. DI Matthew "Dot" Cottan (Craig Parkinson) also uses one frequently throughout the series.

The weapons used in production seem to fluctuate between replicas and blank firers, with the blank firers indicated by additional slide markings.

Glock 22

Detective Sergeant Steve Arnott (Martin Compston) briefly arms himself with a Glock 22 before he attends Waldron's funeral in "The List". It is likely that the weapon was intended by the production to stand in for the regular Glock 17 used by other officers throughout the series. He gets scolded by Cottan for actually carrying it without permission.

Colt M1911A1

Ronan Murphy (Shane Gately) carries an M1911A1 pistol, which he surrenders without firing. Sgt. Danny Waldron (Daniel Mays) later uses it to fire rounds into a wall to make it appear he and the team were fired on first.
