The following weapons were used in Season 3 of the television series The Unit:



Kimber Custom TLE II

The Kimber Custom TLE II is the sidearm of choice for Command Sgt. Major Jonas Blane (Dennis Haysbert) throughout Seasons 1-3 (though he occasionally switches to a Kimber Warrior). Betsy Blane uses this pistol to shoot a snake in "Every Step You Take" (S3E04).

Kimber Custom TLE II - .45 ACP. This version has no rails and is the version used in the television show The Unit.
Command Sgt. Major Jonas Blane (Dennis Haysbert) cleans his pistol in "Every Step You Take" (S3E04).

Jonas' Custom M1911

At the beginning of Season 3, Jonas Blane (Dennis Haysbert) continues to use the custom M1911 handgun he was given at the end of Season 2.

Colt Government Model M1911A1 - .45 ACP, what was likely used a base gun.

Colt M1911A1

The M1911A1 is a frequent weapon seen in the series. Master Sgt. Mack Gerhardt (Max Martini) carries one as his sidearm. The pistol also is used by Col. Tom Ryan (Robert Patrick).

SIG-Sauer P229

The SIG-Sauer P229 is a commonly featured handgun throughout the series. Bob Brown as well as Rock, a gang member turned Army soldier, both use the SIG 229 in "Binary Explosion" (S3E09). The 229 is unusual since Bob usually packs a P226 and the soldiers are getting guns from US armories (where the SIG is not commonly issued). Grey also uses one with a suppressor and laser sight in "Pandemonium, Part II" (S3E02).

Battle Rifles/Carbines

Colt M4A1 Carbine

M4A1 carbines are used by all members of the Unit, often with a 40mm M203 Grenade Launcher, and with an optical sight (normally the Trijicon ACOG, Aimpoint CompM2, or EOTech 552 Holographic sight). Sometimes, they switch with HK416s.

Colt M4A1 Carbine - 5.56x45mm
Jonas fires a regular M4A1 with no accessories besides rail covers in "MPs" (S3E06).
Jonas with his M4A1 in "MPs" (S3E06). Strangely, the bolt appears to be locked open and the charging handle is not locked in place as it would be normally during firing (in all likelihood, Dennis Haysbert accidentally dislodged it after the weapon was emptied and never locked it back into place). Also note that the lower receiver has no fencing around the magazine release like a real M4 would, making it evident that this weapon is simply an M4 upper placed on an SP1 lower.
The M4A1 is seen on display during a funeral in "Play 16" (S3E08). Earlier, an M16A2 was the rifle appearing to be prepared for this service.


M16A2 rifles are usually seen in the hands of the military such as regular US Army units in "Every Step You Take" (S3E04). In "Play 16" (S3E08), Mack is seen cleaning and preparing an M16A2, including attaching an M9 bayonet. This rifle was presumably being prepared for display at a funeral, but strangely, an M4 is used at the funeral instead.

Heckler & Koch HK416

One of the rifles that Unit members use is the Heckler & Koch HK416, specifically the D10RS variant with a 10-inch barrel. Sometimes, the rifles have the EOTech 552 Holographic sight attached (in "Every Step You Take" (S3E04), Bob's EOTech disappears and reappears a few times). Mac uses one in "Inside Out" (S3E05).

Colt Model 933

Colt Model 933s are used by Jonas, Mack, Bob, and Grey in the Season 3 episodes "Five Brothers" (S3E07) and "Play 16" (S3E08), but note that in the latter episode they switch to HK416s a couple times in a continuity error, which implies they are intended to stand-in for them. They are seen outfitted with EOTech 551 Holographic sights, AN/PEQ-2s, Crane stocks, vertical foregrips, and rail mounted flip-up front sights, but strangely lack a rear sight, although one shows up on Jonas's rifle sometimes in another continuity error.

Sniper Rifles

Blaser R93 LRS2

In "Gone Missing" (S3E10), the Unit goes on a mission armed with the Blaser R93 LRS2 Precision Sniper Rifle as their sniper rifles. In the episode, the Blaser uses a new type of ammo filled with mercury that was designed specifically not to over penetrate. The rifles are handled by Bob, Grey, and Mack with Jonas alternating with Bob a couple times. The sound effect used is that of a suppressed round when clearly none of the rifles are suppressed.

In "Gone Missing" (S3E10), Mack fires the Blaser. The edit appears to make it seem like there was no recoil.
