Re: Weapons used in the James Bond movies.

Yes, it was a very common military weapon in the 60's. It's not very associated with Bond for most people, though.

No, it was a pretty routinely deployed weapon for the US military but it sits quite nicely in the display, scattered around the museum are other weapons used by Bond more recently.

Re: Weapons used in the James Bond movies.

Spectre henchman also used the M1 carbine along with some other weapons when Blofeld's  Volcano lair was invaded by Tiger Tanaka's Ninjas in You Only Live Twice.  Some of the Ninja's also had them during this scene too.

Another favorite weapon of mine is the FN P90.

Produced:(1990 - present)



Type: Submachine Gun

Length:  19.7 in (500 mm)

Weight:  5.60 lb (2.54 kg) empty

Caliber: 5.7x28mm

Capacity: 10, 30, 50-round horizontal box magazines (all magazines are of the same physical dimensions with spacers in smaller versions)

Fire Modes:  Semi, Full-Auto (900 RPM)

This SMG was made by FN Herstal per direct request of NATO, who wanted a new cartridge that had greater power than 9x19mm and could penetrate body armor better. The P90 and the 5.7mm round it fires were the result. Most notably  the P90 appeared in The World Is Not Enough, after a short appearance in Wai Lin's safe house armory in Tomorrow Never Dies. James Bond as well as Renard and various character made use of this weapon in the film. Additionally many fans know it from its appearances in various video games tie ins such as Goldeneye 007 for the Nintendo 64* and the PC/ Gameboy version of Nightfire.  In real life many military and law enforcement personal use this weapon, the 5.7mm round is designed to dump its energy into the target with little risk of over penetration. Additionally, due to its unique method of eliminating spent casings(the ammunition casings drop through a chute at the rear of the receiver) makes it popular with both right and left handed shooters.

* Due to a mistake in programming, the gun in the game has an 80 round magazine instead of the correct 50 . (50 in hexidecimal is 80 in decimal)
