Taxi 3 is a 2003 French action-comedy that is the third installment in the Taxi film series. Written and produced by Luc Besson and directed by Gérard Krawczyk and set in Marseille, Christmas 2003, the film finds Comissaire Gibert (Bernard Farcy) and Émilien (Frédéric Diefenthal) having to face a new gang: the Santa Claus gang, which members are all disguised in Santa Claus, when Qiu (Bai Ling), a reporter, joins the french Police.

The following weapons were used in the film Taxi 3:



Beretta 92FS Inox

When Émilien falls into the trashbin, members of the Santa Claus gang are seen examinating guns. A Beretta 92FS Inox is seen onto a opened gun case.

Browning Hi-Power

A female cop is seen holding what looks like a Browning Hi-Power.

Desert Eagle Mark I

During the intro starring Sylvester Stallone as a cameo, a kid is seen with a Desert Eagle Mark I when Stallone tries to steal his skateboard. Hard to see, but the safety lever matches better the Mark I than the Mark VII. The muzzle size also matches better to a .357 Magnum. During the James Bond style opening title, several Desert Eagle are seen, both wielded by Émilien or displayed on the background. It is however not possible to identify the version.

SIG-Sauer P228

Émilien's issued weapon is a SIG-Sauer P228 which is mostly seen at the beginning, and holstered for the rest of the movie. The P228 is also seen during the James Bond style opening credits, where Émilien poorly draws it and drops it on the ground instead of shooting the camera.

Walther P99

During the James Bond style opening title, Daniel (Samy Naceri) is seen holding a Walther P99 fitted with a fake suppressor (too thin to be real). A policeman is seen holding what appears to be a P99 as well.
