The Raid: Redemption, also known as simply The Raid, is a 2011 Indonesian action film directed by Gareth Evans and starring Iko Uwais as a member of a 20-man Detachment 88 team that must fight its way out of a criminal-infested apartment building after being trapped there by a vicious drug lord. The film made its North American debut at the Toronto Film Festival, and entered a wider release in early 2012. A sequel, The Raid 2, was released in 2014.

The making of the movie shows airsoft guns used as props in the movie. None of the firearms in this movie are real. The ejected shells and flashes were all added digitally.

The following weapons were used in the film The Raid: Redemption:


Glock 17

Third-generation Glock 17 pistols are used by the Detachment 88 officers, including Rama (Iko Uwais).

3rd Generation Glock 17 - 9x19mm. Note the finger grooves, thumb reliefs, and accessory rail on the frame, which differentiate it from the older model.

Smith & Wesson Model 327

A thug attempts to shoot Rama and Bowo (Tegar Satrya) with a Smith & Wesson Model 327. Later, Lieutenant Wahyu (Pierre Gruno) takes a nickel-plated Smith & Wesson Model 327 from another thug.

Heckler & Koch HK416

Nearly all of the Detachment 88 operators use Heckler & Koch HK416 rifles with attached suppressors. These guns are in reality airsoft replicas of the 416 made by WE.

Remington 700

Other thugs are shown aiming Remington 700 sniper rifles as they prepare to ambush the Detachment 88 team. These guns are airsoft replicas of the KJ M700 Takedown.

Knight's Armament PDW

Several thugs fire Knight's Armament PDWs during various action sequences. These guns are in reality airsoft replicas of the PDW made by WE, distinguishable by their STANAG-style magazines.

Since all gunfire was added digitally, actors had to simulate recoil. And since the stairwell shootout was shot in the dark, flashing lights were used to simulate muzzle flash.


All the team members were sent to actor boot camp with KOPASKA, a frogman and UDT unit of the Indonesian Navy, to learn weapons handling and tactics.

Verdi Solaiman (Budi) celebrates being the first to disassemble and reassemble his pistol, a SIG-Sauer P226. Iko Uwais (Rama) and Joe Taslim (Jaka) have Glock 17s.


The actors practice stacking up. They appear to be armed with a variety of weapons, including a Heckler & Koch MP5SD3.
