The Peacemaker is a 1997 thriller starring George Clooney as a US Army Special Forces colonel and Nicole Kidman as a nuclear weapons expert who work together to locate a trainload of nuclear warheads that have gone missing following a nuclear detonation in Russia. The Peacemaker was the first feature film directed by Mimi Leder (Deep Impact) and the first feature to be released by Dreamworks Entertainment.
The following weapons were used in the film The Peacemaker:
The Beretta 92FS is the sidearm of Lt. Colonel Tom Devoe (George Clooney), USAF pilots, NYC police officers, and several other characters.
"Now, I'm only gonna shoot you if I have to, and if I have to, I'm gonna feel really bad about it."
Devoe holds the Beretta on Dietrich Schuhmacher.
Lt. Colonel Tom Devoe (George Clooney
) attaches a suppressor to his Beretta as he threatens the accountant for the computer.
After firing his Beretta, Devoe gets yanked back into the cargo truck by Gen. Kodorof.
Devoe and federal agents draw their Berettas.
Devoe holds his Beretta 92 on Gravich, showing a good two-handed grip.
FBI agents are seen drawing Astra A-100 pistols during a confrontation at JFK airport. The Astra A-100 was most likely chosen due to its similarity to the SIG-Sauer P228, the actual FBI-issued sidearm.

The CZ 75B is seen being used by several characters throughout the movie including Stevo (Slavko Juraga) and Dusan Gavrich (Marcel Iures).

The hammer is not ring style like that of a CZ-75B either.
Dusan Gavrich (Marcel Iures
) puts the pistol to his head after being confronted by Devoe.
The Glock 17 is seen being used by a member of the security team chasing Devoe in Austria. Several law enforcement officers in New York are also seen armed with the Glock.

Several New York National Guard troops show up to aid in the finding of the bomb, carrying the older M16A1s. This is a correct prop for the National Guard Troops given the time this movie was made. M16A1s were being issued to National Guard Infantry units as late as 2002. There are probably some Guard units that still have them today.

Sa vz. 58
The Russian soldiers at the beginning of the film use Sa vz. 58 assault rifles, which are incorrect as they should be using the standard weapon AK-74M. Polish IFOR soldiers who raid the home of Gravich are also incorrectly armed with the rifle instead of the more correct kbk. AKMS.
The barrels of said rifles are visible over the officer's shoulder.

Schermuly Multi-Purpose Gun
A Schermuly Multi-Purpose Gun with the stock removed is seen being used by Kodroff's driver (Dejan Acimovic). He uses it twice, once to blow up a Russian Border Patrol, the again to shoot at Devoe’s chopper, but he shoots the floor of his truck, which blows up, killing him.
