Frank Martin (Jason Statham) uses a Beretta 92FS pistol thoughout the movie and in this scene (where the gun rotates in mid air) the gun was customized with a balanced axel rod installed in the body of the weapon and it was suspened from a bracket on the camera boom with two wires. The gun was filmed rotating in slow motion for the effect, and in post production the CGI effects company digitally removed the support wires from the final scene. Filmed at the chateau des Fayeres mansion in Cannes.
Wall Street (Matt Schulze) reacts to a Bruni 8mm M1911 Blank Pistol (nickel Plated) pressed to his neck. Being a single action automatic, nothing would happen if the trigger was pulled in this instance since the hammer is not cocked back. Often times, a replica firearm is used for actor safety (and comfort) when a gun is pressed close to the body of the performer. Notice the duct tape used to conceal the name of the weapon in this scene.
Lai (Qi Shu) presses the Bruni 8mm blank pistol to the chest of her father, Mr. Kwai (Ric Young). Being a single action automatic, nothing would happen if the trigger was pulled in this instance since the hammer is not cocked back
Kwai (Ric Young) uses a Beretta Cougar 8000 pistol in this scene and points it at Frank Martin.

Lai (Qi Shu) points a Ruger SP 101 at Frank (Jason Statham).
The French police officers, in the police station scene, use Manurhin MR-73 revolvers. If you look closely, you can see the hammer and the cylinder lock look different, because the models used in the movie are Manurhin F1, the F1 has a Ruger frame and mechanism, Manurhin only produces the barrel and the cylinder.
Frank (Jason Statham) acquires a cut down Ruger Super Redhawk from the altercation in Wallstreet's mansion. In this scene he prepares to leave the mansion in a hot wired Mercedes. This scene was filmed on Ave de Saissy in Cannes, France.

Some of the French National Police who open the truck's container have Beretta M12 Submachine guns.
During the attack on Frank's house a lot of 'spent' rounds are seen falling to the ground. The extended tip and star crimped ends indicate that they are 5.56mm blank ammo sheels. The rounds appear to be falling from an M16 rifle but during the close up shots of the shells hitting the ground it is clear that they are Ruger AC556 Carbine - 5.56x45mm shells. Scene filmed in Cassis, France.
A SIG SG 552, equipped with a weaver made late 1960's "single point" occluded-eye sight, is used by Frank when he is checking shipping containers for smuggled Chinese people.

The third assassin who shoots up Frank Martin's house uses a M16A1. It appears to be a standard M16A1 with an unusual A2-ish forearm and a strange upper section that looks like it's trying to copy a Beretta AR-70/90 in general shape and style (especially the forward slant of the carry handle), it's possible this might be a very old school laser aiming device.
A SIG SG 543 is used by one of Wall Streets' assassins to shoot up Frank Martin's house. His SIG SG 543 has a 40mm launcher attached. The launcher for the SIG SG 550 series is the SIG GL 5140 grenade launcher however this is not one of those launchers. Maybe an older launcher meant for the SG 540?
During the battle inside the Bus depot, one of Wall Street's thugs fires a customized Ruger AC556 (the full auto version of the Ruger Mini 14) at Frank Martin. The rifle has a Choate™ aftermarket flash hider extension as well as a flashlight mounted to the barrel.
During the battle inside the Bus depot, one of Wall Street's thugs fires a standard Steyr AUG at Frank Martin.
During the battle inside the Bus Depot, one of the assassins fires a full auto M16A2. (The real M16A2 is a three shot burst weapon, so this is a 'fake' M16A2, or an M16A3 (which was the A2 with the A1 fire control group that was issued in small numbers to Naval personnel). In some shots there are marks on the barrel that resemble the cutouts of an M4, however upon closer inspection, they are wear marks from either a non-standard laser or flashlight mount.
Wall Street during the highway chase uses a Remington 870 shotgun with black synthetic stock, a pistol grip, and a flashlight attached under the barrel.
The luckless robber at the beginning of the film has a Mossberg 500 shotgun that has been tapped for scope mounts.
One of Wall Streets' assassins uses a mocked up launcher that somewhat resembles the MATADOR Missile Launcher, however, the method of launching is completely different. It loads (and reloads) in the rear like an M1A1 Bazooka and fires 'self guiding' rockets that appear to be able to make 90 degree turns in flight.
The man firing the launcher pulls out the 'Special' munitions - a standard M20B style rocket with a cartoon shark face painted on to indicate it's 'special status'. These rockets were fabricated by Cauvy Armes company at the produces request.
