List of James Bond firearms

The Walther PPK is the most famous of James Bond's handguns.

The following is a list of firearms used by Agent 007, Bond girls, Bond allies, and Bond villains in the James Bond novel, film, and video game adventures.


Ian Fleming[edit]

When Ian Fleming wrote the first of the James Bond novels, Casino Royale, he had no idea in which direction the stories would go, least of all how many he would eventually write. When he introduced Bond as using a .25 ACP caliber Beretta in a flat chamois leather holster, he is commonly believed to have given little thought to it. Fleming had been issued a .25 ACP Baby Browning during the Second World War when he was in Naval Intelligence and felt it was an appropriate side arm for an intelligence officer on an undercover mission.

In an interview published posthumously in the December 1964 issue of Playboy magazine, Fleming admitted that he was not an expert in the field of firearms, and "Quite honestly, the whole question of expertise in these matters bores me. Obviously, I want to know the facts. If a Gaylord holster is better than a Berns-Martin, I want to know about it, but there is where my interest rather ends." The reference would be to the holsters of Chic Gaylord, a well-known holster maker of the period who in fact DID make shoulder holsters to suit Fleming's choice of pistol for Bond, the Walther PPK.[1]

Shortly before the publication of From Russia, with Love in 1956, Fleming received a fan letter from an author and gun collector, Geoffrey Boothroyd. He told Fleming that he admired the Bond novels apart from the hero's choice of weapon. Boothroyd felt the Beretta was "a lady's gun" with no real stopping power.[2] He also objected to the choice of holster. Boothroyd proposed that Bond should use a revolver like the Smith & Wesson Centennial Airweight. It had no external hammer, so it would not catch on Bond's clothes. The Smith & Wesson could be kept in a Berns-Martin triple draw holster held in place with a spring clip which would decrease Bond's draw time. Boothroyd also said the suppressors Bond occasionally used were rarely silent and actually reduced the gun's stopping power.

Fleming thanked Boothroyd for his letter and accepted his recommendations of the Centennial revolver and Berns-Martin holster to suit, but made a few points of his own in his reply. He felt that Bond ought to have an automatic instead of a revolver and persisted in wanting a silencer to be fitted. Fleming agreed that the Beretta lacked power, but pointed out that Bond had used more powerful weapons when necessary, such as the Colt M1911 .45 cal auto pistol he uses in Moonraker. Fleming also said that he had seen a silenced Sten gun during the war and the weapon had hardly made a whisper. As a counterpoint, Boothroyd pointed out that silencers are ineffective on revolvers.

Ultimately Boothroyd recommended the Walther PPK 7.65 mm as being the best choice for an automatic of that size, with its ammunition available everywhere—but did so in the context of Fleming's request for pistols to suit the European adversaries that Bond faced. Quite apart from the issue of which pistols Bond would carry, Fleming asked Boothroyd if he could lend his illustrator, Richard Chopping, one of his guns to be painted for the cover of From Russia, with Love. Boothroyd lent Chopping a Smith & Wesson .38 revolver that had the trigger guard removed for faster firing and other modifications popular during the era including a shortened barrel.

Fleming had Bond's Beretta caught in his trousers at the end of From Russia, with Love, an event that almost costs the secret agent his life. In the next novel Dr. No, a Major Boothroyd recommends that Bond switch guns. Major Boothroyd chose the Walther PPK 7.65mm. Bond keeps his Walther PPK automatic in a Berns-Martin triple-draw shoulder holster, which was a split-front spring-retention holster adaptable only to revolvers.[3] The design of the holster was centered around the cylinder of a revolver, where the spring clip would "grip" the pistol.[4] and as a result of this error by Fleming, the company's brochures of the period were marked "no shoulder holster made for automatics.".[5] From these letters between Fleming and Boothroyd, in which Fleming commits to Boothroyd that Bond will be issued with the Centennial and suitably matching Berns-Martin holster by the appearance of what was to be the Dr. No novel, but insists on Bond having a silencer, it appears on the evidence that Fleming switched to an automatic for Bond to retain the silencer capability for him, and declined to revisit the matter of holsters.

John Gardner[edit]

On 20 March 1974 an attempt was made to kidnap HRH The Princess Anne. The Walther PPK of the police officer protecting her jammed and was subsequently withdrawn from service. When John Gardner was asked to write a new series of James Bond continuation novels, one of the first things he decided was to update Bond's trusty Walther PPK. Gardner devoted two pages in his first James Bond novel Licence Renewed to the debate over whether to use a revolver or an automatic, and what make and model, before finally settling on an older FN M1903 in 9 mm Browning Long (9x20mmSR). Even Bond himself admits that it is an old gun. The original hardback cover illustration by Richard Chopping shows the FN pistol.

After criticism from fans for choosing an old gun, Gardner replaced the gun three more times, eventually sticking to the ASP 9 mm for the rest of the series. As he intended to downplay the gadgets in his books, Gardner compensated by bringing to the series a colorful arsenal of weapons from around the world.

Raymond Benson[edit]

Walther P99 used in the later Brosnan and early Craig films

When James Bond expert Raymond Benson was asked to take over writing the series, he briefly gave Bond back his Walther PPK. Benson also brought the series in line with the films and concurrently replaced Bond's PPK with the Walther P99 in the film novelization Tomorrow Never Dies. However, in some following books Bond would use both weapons: the PPK for concealment, and the P99 for situations that did not require a concealed weapon.

Eon Productions films[edit]

The scene from the novel Dr. No is replayed more-or-less verbatim in the 1962 film, ensuring the Walther PPK a place in cultural history. Bond shows a great deal more fidelity to his side arm in the films than in the novels, even going so far as to take on an international arms dealer and hi-tech arms enthusiastic Brad Whitaker armed only with an eight-shot, 7.65 mm semi-automatic. One notable difference between the novels and the films in relation to the PPK, is the lack of the "spur" on the magazine. The spur provides better grip on the weapon. In some of the films, the magazine used is a non-spur magazine. The PPK in the novels was noted to possess the spur, and never noted otherwise.

During the 1963 production of From Russia with Love, photographer David Hurn was commissioned to photograph the actors of the film in their costume. When the theatrical property Walther PPK did not turn up for the shoot, Hurn volunteered his own Walther LP 53 air pistol and said he would airbrush out the long barrel; the airbrushed stills appearing in a US "JAMES BOND IS BACK" poster. However, Renato Fratini a film poster artist saw the original stills of the weapon and used it in his U.K. posters with the weapon appearing in several more film posters up to The Man With the Golden Gun. On 14 February 2001, Hurn had his LP 53 (serial number 054159) in its original presentation case and letter of provenance auctioned off at Christie's where the weapon fetched in excess of US$435,000.[8][9]

A link to the Internet Movie Firearms Database's category that shows all of the guns used in every James Bond film to date is found here.

From Tomorrow Never Dies to Casino Royale, Bond used a Walther P99. However, in Quantum of Solace he reverted back to his Walther PPK (possibly a tribute to the classic Bond films). In Skyfall, Bond starts the film out with the PPK, but he is later issued an upgrade by Q in the form of a Walther PPK/S 9mm Short with an optical palm reader coded to Bond's palmprint so only he can fire the weapon.

Film Title Year Firearms
Dr. No 1962
  • Beretta Model 1934, Bond handed this to Q when he was forced to use a Walther PPK. This prop, in .380 ACP, was used to represent the .25 ACP Beretta from the novel.[10]
  • Walther PP, although it is called a Walther PPK, Bond is seen with the longer barreled PP in Dr. No.[11]
  • FN Model 1910 with suppressor. (This pistol was apparently used because there was no PPK in the prop department that could be fitted with a suppressor at the time.)
  • Colt M1911A1 pistol, suppressed version used by the Three Blind Mice assassins and Professor R.J. Dent, though Bond calls it a "Smith & Wesson" in the film.

  • Walther P38, used by one of the Three Blind Mice assassins.

  • Smith & Wesson Model 10, used by Dr. No's guards

  • L4A2, used by Dr. No's men on the high powered boat when Bond meets Honey Ryder.
From Russia with Love 1963
  • Walther PPK, Bond's issued sidearm. Also used by Kerim Bey, head of MI-6's "Station T" in Turkey, and by some Soviet agents on the train, perhaps because Makarov PM's weren't available for the film.
  • AR-7 "sniper" rifle, kept in his attache case. Chambered in .22 Long Rifle. Q identifies it as ".25 caliber."
  • MP40, Carried by SPECTRE guards on Blofeld's boat. Also seen in the hand of a SPECTRE assassin sent to kill Bond via helicopter and later by the assassins sent to kill Bond via boats.

  • Very Flare Gun, used as a weapon in the boat scenes to ignite gasoline in the water. This gun can be seen at Planet Hollywood, Orlando, Florida, where it is incorrectly labeled as being used in Thunderball. He used a pen flare from Q in that movie.
  • Beretta Model 418, When Tatiana Romanova picks up Rosa Klebb's dropped gun it has become a Beretta, she uses it to kill Klebb.

  • Browning Auto 5, Used by Bond on Palmyra, he states it's a gun more suited for women, and shoots a clay pigeon from the hip.

  • "Triggerless" rifle, made by the Portuguese gunsmith Lazar for an assassin with only three fingers. It was fired by squeezing a recessed trigger in the butt.

Octopussy 1983
  • Walther P5, Bond's issued sidearm. He is clearly wielding a P5 in the taxi chase, but later tells Q "I appear to have misplaced my PPK.". This confusion is most likely a script issue.
