Saw III is a 2006 horror film directed by Darren Lynn Bousman, adapted from a screenplay by Leigh Whannell. It is the third film in the Saw franchise. The film stars Tobin Bell, Shawnee Smith, Angus Macfadyen, Bahar Soomekh, and Dina Meyer and was released in the United States on October 27, 2006, by Lionsgate.

The story follows Jeff, a man who lost his son in a car accident and wants revenge, who is put through a series of Jigsaw's tests in order to try to get him to let go of his desire for vengeance on the man that killed his son. Meanwhile, a bed-ridden John Kramer has his apprentice Amanda Young kidnap Dr. Lynn Denlon, who is tasked with keeping John alive for one final test before he dies. A sequel, titled Saw IV, was released in 2007.

The following weapons were used in the film Saw III:



Beretta 92FS

Jeff Denlon (Angus Macfadyen) finds a one 9x19mm round after the test with Danica Scott (Debra McCabe), the magazine after the test with Halden (Barry Flatman),and Beretta 92FS after the final test with Timothy (Mpho Koaho). He loads the pistol and walks down the corridors. Later, in the operating room, he shoots Amanda. In the scene where Jeff slowly walks into the tool room, the gun turns into a non-gun prop, likely for safety and convenience reasons.

SIG-Sauer P226

Detective Allison Kerry (Dina Meyer) continues to carry and use her service SIG-Sauer P226, as in the previous film. She pulls the P226 from her nightstand when she notices a hidden camera in her closet and then fires a few shots through the closet door before being kidnapped.

Smith & Wesson 5946

At the beginning of the movie, Eric Matthews (Donnie Wahlberg) reaches for his Smith & Wesson 5946 left by Amanda at the end of the last movie with his boot and checks the magazine, after that he throws it away in a rage. After that, Amanda (Shawnee Smith), carries one of her own as a personal weapon throughout the film. She repeatedly points the gun at Lynn sensually, but almost immediately puts it down. In the final act, she becomes enraged and intends to shoot Lynn, but a small "shootout" begins with Jeff. When Amanda fires it, it sounds as though it is suppressed.

Submachine Guns

Heckler & Koch MP5A3

Hearing a bomb explosion at Troy's game, one of the neighbors calls the police. Then the arriving SWAT officers including Pete Baker (Kelly Jones) and Joe (Vincent Rother) are armed with a Heckler & Koch MP5A3 breaches a welded-shut door in the abandoned school. Unlike other films in the franchise, the appearance of SWAT forces with firearms in this film is very brief.

12 Gauge Double Barreled Shotgun

The key to deactivate the "Rack" trap is hung from a wire in front of the sawed-off barrels of a 12 Gauge Double Barreled Shotgun located in an enlarged glass box. This wire is connected to the shotgun's triggers, so that any attempt to remove the key will result in a shot. Jeff (Angus Macfadyen) has to take the key to save his son's killer Timothy Young (Mpho Koaho). Initially, he manages to carefully disconnect the key, but by releasing the wire, he inadvertently set the trap in action and the shot kills the Judge Halden (Barry Flatman) standing in front of it.

Nail bomb

A homemade nail bomb is the main incentive for Troy (J. LaRose) to pass the test. There is a timer on it for five minutes, during which time it should have been released from the chains. But since this trap was designed by Amanda and not by John, Troy had no chance of salvation. One of the neighbors heard the explosion and called the police. When they arrive, a SWAT team led by Daniel Rigg finds the remains of the bomb and Troy's body, and Detective Mark Hoffman (Costas Mandylor) immediately begins to examine the crime scene.

The bomb itself consists of a large glass jar with nails and a timer connected to it with a detonator.

Shotgun Collar

The main challenge for Lynn was the shotgun collar. This device is five shotgun shells placed around the collar, directly aiming at the victim's head. Each of these shells has its own hammer which all had to be activated individually. The collar was attuned to some kind of signal. If this signal got lost, for example if the test subject moved out of range , the collar would be activated, causing it to blow off the victim's head. The wrong actions of Amanda and Jeff led to the collar activating and killing Lynn.
