S.W.A.T.: Firefight (2011)

S.W.A.T.: Firefight is a 2011 DTV action film starring Gabriel Macht as Paul Cutler, an LAPD SWAT officer is assigned to train officers of the Detroit Police Department in the latest tactics. The story for this film was co-written by three former LAPD SWAT officers. While not directly related except for the use of the television theme song, Firefight was marketed as a sequel to the 2003 film S.W.A.T. and then was followed in 2017 by the DTV film S.W.A.T.: Under Siege.

The following weapons were used in the film S.W.A.T.: Firefight:


IMI/Magnum Desert Eagle Mark XIX

A Desert Eagle Mark XIX is held by a thug in the opening scene. He fires into the air to scare people and later holds it on a hostage.

Smith & Wesson 5906

Walter Hatch (Robert Patrick) uses a Smith & Wesson 5906 throughout most of the film which is somewhat amusing considering it's a very popular cop gun.

Assault Rifles

Bushmaster ACR

Sgt. Paul Cutler (Gabriel Macht) uses a Bushmaster ACR as his primary. The EOTech XPS sights are clearly put on backwards in several scenes. This could potentially be the first film appearance of the ACR.

Colt Law Enforcement Carbine

Many S.W.A.T. Officers use variants of the Colt Law Enforcement Carbine throughout the movie with a variety of sights and gear attached to them. The Detroit SWAT team was later seen using training models that shoot paintballs.

Training Law Enforcement Carbine

The Detroit SWAT unit used Law Enforcement Carbines that had blue colored handguards and barrels and fired paint-balls in training.

Barrett M107

Walter Hatch (Robert Patrick) uses a Barrett M107 at a shooting range to scare Cutler. For some reason he racks the charging handle for every shot. It might or might not be for dramatic effort or the blanks they used didn't cycle semi-automatically. It's also possible that they didn't have any actual blanks and used special effects for the muzzle blast.

Desert Tactical Arms Stealth Recon Scout

SWAT Officer Lori Barton (Shannon Kane) uses a Desert Tactical Arms Stealth Recon Scout throughout the film in her role as sniper. Officer Mundy also used it during training.
