Taken 3 (also known as Tak3n) is the third and final installment in the Taken film trilogy. Liam Neeson returns as former CIA operative Bryan Mills, who discovers he's been framed for murder and must evade both the authorities as well as the mobsters intent on killing him. Luc Besson returns as co-writer/executive producer and Olivier Megaton, the director of Taken 2, returns to helm this 2015 sequel. The Taken series would be revisited in a NBC television series prequel that premiered in 2017.

The following weapons were used in the film Taken 3:


SIG-Sauer P226

Although the Beretta 92FS is the main pistol in the series, Bryan Mills (Liam Neeson) also wields a West German SIG-Sauer P226 throughout the film, which is one of two guns that he keeps hidden in his basement. Russian thugs are also seen using assorted P226 handguns, both older West German-made and newer American-made P226R models.

Note: Although Bryan uses the Glock 17 and the Beretta for most of the film, he also uses the P226 for some time. This is strange, since only one P226 has been seen in the whole series, and that was very briefly in the first film and the second film. This is probably because the film took place in America, unlike the last two, which had different armorers.

SIG-Sauer P226 - 9x19mm. This is a real film gun and has appeared in several motion pictures.
SIG-Sauer P226R - 9x19mm, updated P226 with accessory rail, now the standard production model for the P226 (IMFDB still refers to this model as the "P226R" to distinguish between newer and older models).

Glock 17

The Glock 17 appears to be the handgun carried by LAPD officers and detectives, including Det. Garcia (Don Harvey) and Det. Smith (Dylan Bruno). Bryan also uses Glock pistols that he takes from policemen for almost the whole film. A Russian thug is also seen with one.

Glock 21

Stuart St. John (Dougray Scott) uses a Glock to threaten Kim Mills (Maggie Grace). Judging by the large size of its bore, it is clearly a .45-caliber Glock 21, not a 9mm Glock 17 like the other Glocks seen in the film. It also appears to be a third generation model.

Steyr M9A1

When he goes to his hidden basement, aside from the Glock, Bryan retrieves parts of what appears to be a Steyr M9A1 and assembles it for use. It is likely supposed to be the same Steyr that Bryan used in Taken 2.

Springfield Armory TRP Operator

During the apartment shootout, Bryan Mills takes a Springfield Armory TRP Operator from a Russian thug and uses it throughout the rest of the climax.

Note: The pistol is fitted with an accessory rail, full length barrel and stainless muzzle, raised target sights, front slide serrations, ambidextrous safety, target three-hole ring trigger and skeletonized hammer. Based on film production, year of filming and weaponry, this is probably the same pistol used by Scarlett Johansson in Luc Besson's 2014 film Lucy.

Beretta 92A1

The Beretta 92A1 is one of the main pistols used by Russian thugs. Bryan Mills (Liam Neeson) takes one from a security guard and uses it during the apartment shootout.

KRISS Vector

One of Oleg's henchmen uses a KRISS Vector during the apartment shootout. While the film depicts it firing fully automatic, the below screenshot shows that it lacks the forward firing rate selector, meaning that this is a civilian semi-auto Vector SBR, but could have been converted to fire full-auto by the film's armorers.

Mossberg 500

LAPD officers are seen with Mossberg 500 shotguns on several occasions, some equipped with heat shields and extended magazine tubes.

Mossberg 500 "Persuader" with standard five-shot magazine tube - 12 Gauge. This is the most commonly produced model of the 500 series today.
