Equilibrium Firearms List





All the Grammaton Clerics use fully automatic Beretta 92FS pistols with longer barrels and styled barrel weights. There also some little touches to them like the ‘T’ of the Tetragrammaton being engraved on the front of the barrel weight and the trigger guard has been straitened out to make them look cooler. The Tetragrammaton muzzle flash is not possible to do in real life. In real life Beretta 92’s are chambered for 9mm, but I don’t think they were meant to be portrayed as Beretta’s in the film, but more as “fantasy guns”.


 
*SIDE ARM OF THE GRAMMATON CLERIC, THE BERETTA 92FS*



The resistance fighters have 7.62mm AK47 rifles, 9mm Uzi SMG’s and a couple of 7.65mm Skorpion vz.61 SMG’s.

 

*EVERYBODY'S FAVORITE, THE AK47*



 
*SKORPION (FRONT) UZI (BACK)*



The resistance leader “Seamus” has a 12g Remington 870 shotgun with no stock, and topped with what is either an Aimpoint red dot sight or a tactical light. The fighter that gets wasted coming out of the doors also has a Remington like Seamus’ but with no scope/light.


 
*SEAMUS STRAPS UP WITH HIS REMINGTON 870*



Some sort of full sized Glock is the sidearm for the SWAT police, this is the pistol that Marry pulls on Preston, but is stopped by the officer that she took it from.



*MARY TAKES A SHOT AT PRESTON WITH A STOLEN GLOCK*



Most of the Sweepers use Beretta AR70 5.56mm assault rifles, there on the streets, in the puppy shootout and in the pistol wiping sequence and various other places in the film.


 
*SWEEPERS STAND GUARD WITH THE
ALMOST FORGOTTEN BERETTA AR70*



All the police at the start have Heckler and Koch G36 5.56mm assault rifles. Brant also uses one in raid in the nether and all the Sweepers in the “hall of mirrors” at the end use them as well. The shorter variant of the rifle, the G36K also makes an appearance with some Sweepers when we first see DuPont and is also seen with two of the Sweepers in the puppy shootout.


 
*THE COPS PACK THE G36, THE SEXIEST ASSAULT RIFLE EVER!*



The shotguns that the police have are Remington 870’s with vertical fore grips. At the start they have tactical lights under the barrel but at the puppy shootout they are on top like Seamus’ shotgun.



*SWEEPER ABOUT TO GET DRILLED BY HIS OWN REMINGTON 870*



The most widely used sub machine gun for all the police is the Walter MPL 9mm, there seen just about everywhere in the second and third raids in the nether, the Sweeper Captain has one as well. Though there are some other police that are using Heckler and Koch MP5 9mm SMG’s as well, one of the Sweepers doing a drive by uses the shorter MP5K variant.


 
*SWAT DUDE PACKING A WALTER MPL –
GET THAT FINGER OFF THE TRIGGER!*



 
*COPS ADVANCING IN ON RESISTANCE WITH MP5’S*



The gun that is used to kill the dogs is a Walter WA2000 Sniper rifle with no scope.



*THE INNOCENT PUPPIES GET EXECUTED BY A WALTER WA2000 :’( *


 
The Sweepers in the white suits have FN P90 5.7mm SMG’s.



*WHITE SWEEPERS AND THEIR NEW FN P90’S*



I don’t know what kind of revolver the resistance leader uses to try to kill Preston with, my guess is that it’s some sort of compact .38.


 
*IF ANYONE KNOWS WHAT IT IS PLEASE SHOUT OUT!*


Additions:

Often mistaken as a Goof: In the scene where the police arrest Preston's wife, it appears that Preston takes a Colt M4 rifle from one of the police and than points the same weapon at another's throat.  But if one is not watching closely it seems that the M4 has changed to a Beretta AR70 rifle.

Here is what actually happens...(thanks to ClericWolf)

Preston takes the M4 from one Sweeper, uses said M4 to smack another Sweeper's Beretta AR70 out of his hand and into Preston's own.

Result: Not a goof.

Result 2: Preston is THE BADASS.
