Se7en (aka, Seven) is a 1995 police crime thriller directed by David Fincher that stars Brad Pitt as David Mills, a young detective new to working downtown homicide who is partnered with Lt. William Somerset (Morgan Freeman), a veteran detective who's seen too much and only has a few days to retirement. Together, they try to crack the case of a serial killer who uses the Seven Deadly Sins (Gluttony, Greed, Sloth, Lust, Pride, Envy, and Wrath) as his inspiration. The film's dirty, violent, dreary and large metropolitan setting is intentionally never told, as "the city" is supposed to be a fictional, more noir version of New York City. Police Technical Advisers were on the set at all times to correct the actors, which explains the exceptional gun handling seen throughout the film.
The following weapons were used in the film Se7en:
WARNING! Due to IMFDB requiring actors be identified as well as the weapons they are holding, this page contains MAJOR SPOILERS!
Smith & Wesson Model 15
Detective Lieutenant William Somerset (Morgan Freeman) carries a Smith & Wesson Model 15 as his sidearm throughout the film.
Custom Springfield Armory M1911-A1
Detective David Mills (Brad Pitt) uses a customized Springfield Armory M1911-A1 with adjustable target sights, mag-na-ported/bushingless bull barrel, beavertail grip safety, ring hammer, extended slide stop safety, extended slide release, light-weight 3-hole target trigger, square trigger guard, and stag horn grips as his sidearm throughout the film, notably during the climax.
Taurus PT99 AF
A blued Taurus PT99 AF with wood grips is used by John Doe (Kevin Spacey) when Detective Mills (Brad Pitt) and Detective Lt. William Somerset (Morgan Freeman) go to his apartment. One could argue that the weapon is a similar Beretta 92FS with custom sights and grips, but there is no ambidextrous safety/decocking lever on the slide, making this weapon for certain a Taurus. One of the murder victims is described as having bruises from the muzzle and front sight of Doe's pistol on their head, which seems unlikely since the barrel protrudes significantly past the muzzle, distancing the front sight from the barrel. However, it is also possible that Doe, being independently wealthy, simply used a different gun on that victim.
The city's SWAT officers are seen with unknown M1911A1-series pistols in their tac-vest holsters. Since SWAT team 1911 models varied heavily in the '90s, they could be multiple types.
The city's police officers in the film carry Glock 17s as their issued sidearms.
California (John C. McGinley) keeps a Beretta 92FS in his tac-vest holster.
A SIG-Sauer P226 is seen in Detective Taylor's (Daniel Zacapa) holster at the first crime scene in the film.
Police Captain Lucas (R. Lee Ermey) has an unknown revolver in his hip holster. It is never seen clearly enough to identify.
Heckler & Koch MP5A2s with Navy trigger groups and Surefire 628 forend weaponlights are used by the SWAT team when they breach the apartment and find the serial killer's third victim.
Colt AR-15A2 Sporter HBAR
A SWAT officer is seen with a Colt AR-15A2 Sporter HBAR slung over his back. This is the civilian version of the M16A2.
A SWAT sniper is seen using a Remington 700PSS sniper rifle fitted with an unknown scope during the final scene in the desert.
Some of the SWAT officers, notably California (John C. McGinley), wield Mossberg 590 shotguns with tactical flashlights when breaching the apartment of the third victim. One is fitted with ghost-ring sights.
Mossberg 500 shotguns are carried by police as they guard the vehicle during the transport of a prisoner. One is also seen in the front of the car driven by Detective Lt. William Somerset (Morgan Freeman) and Detective Mills (Brad Pitt).
M18 Smoke Grenade
The SWAT officers have M18 smoke grenades strapped to their tac-vests, notably California (John C. McGinley).
