I must admit to being a bit relieved that the old PPK is fading out in this film.

While an adequate "spy" pistol in the 1950's and 60's, it's a bit long in the tooth for a 2019 super spy adventure. Besides, if Bond is going to continue to shoot down helicopters or maybe a jet plane,  the SIG 226 is far more believable handgun to use!

I love the PPK. It’s a wonderful little gun. But you’re not wrong. I thought Jeff Deaver got it right with the PPS. Keeps Bond in the Walther family, but updates it to something a bit more practical for a modern agent.

The PPS make sense regarding staying in the Walther family and it appears to be a very good compact conceal weapon...but...IMO...it's not nearly as aesthetically pleasing as the old PPK which is very streamlined and graceful looking. IMO, some of the compact Sigs or the Berretta PX4 Compact are much nicer looking...but that's just me.

Re: What Handgun Will Bond Use in Bond 25? [Potential Spoilers]

I also think PPS is not as attractive as it is good. very good gun, but too practical, not aesthetic. I do like the slight resemblance the walther CCP has with the PPK.

my favorite is of course the P99, and did like the PP, P38 and P5. but they are all medium to large size. He needs a compact handgun, nothing classier than the PPK or a sig p230 or maybe you guys who know better have other proposals.

Speaking of which, I wonder if any modern polymer firearm has the capability to look convincing as a true James Bond gun, imho, an all metal classic gun is requierd. Only the P99 looks classy enough, again, I am very biased in this last statement.

Looks like I was right about the Beretta ARX160 being the other rifle in that photo one page back. We get a closer look at it in this new pic here:

Also, a biker with rifle on his back, looks like a type of M16:

Really hard to tell whether it's a type of M16 from the photos.....could also be an M4.

Re: What Handgun Will Bond Use in Bond 25? [Potential Spoilers]

Looks to be a rubber stunt(since he's riding)copy of an M4 variant with a Sopmod stock, a longish forearm and no sights to me.

My first thought was M4, but figured the front end is too long in these pics?

Re: What Handgun Will Bond Use in Bond 25? [Potential Spoilers]

Thought the stock was the giveaway on M4 but I'm probably wrong.

More assault rifles. Definitely a PMX in there:

Lots of assault rifles, lots of shooting....all potentially good things for a Bond film.

38

Re: What Handgun Will Bond Use in Bond 25? [Potential Spoilers]

A couple of handguns, perhaps too small to identify though

Hand gun on right possibly browning hi power, other maybe a beretta 9mm with couple of add ons at front, mini torch etc, guy with patterned shirt possibly mp5, other photos def members of the AR15 family present, a bull pup at 5.56mm, maybe even an uzi also.

He will use a Barretta.it will jam on him and he will spend six months in hospital. That will take us up to Dr no.

I don't think that one second to the right is a Beretta with any add ons—it just looks like the slide is at the rear of whatever it is. And that pistol on the far right looks more like a Sig P22?. The rifle on the left maybe something in the SCAR family with a short barrel?

43

Re: What Handgun Will Bond Use in Bond 25? [Potential Spoilers]

For the rifles I'd say mp5, some sort of AR possibly an M4 and the last one could be a short barell SCAR or HK G36.

Re: What Handgun Will Bond Use in Bond 25? [Potential Spoilers]

I really hope that the Walther PPK shows up in No Time To Die, like the Aston Martin DB5 it is one of the first things I think of when I think of James Bond. If Bond is finally going to change to a new handgun,  I would be fine with the Walther PPS, since has gotten a lot of praise from the shooting sports community and is said to be of the best self defense pistols on the market at the present time.

45

Re: What Handgun Will Bond Use in Bond 25? [Potential Spoilers]

He won’t be using a new Walther in this.  But predominantly a Sig 226 with two other handguns, you see the PPK once very briefly and that’s it.

Ive got mixed feelings about the ppk being essentially dropped for nttd, as much as its a brilliant little gun and so very iconic to Bond, it has been somewhat surpassed with far more practical handguns out there.
Even Bond himself has shown from time to time some frustration, from looking at it distainfully on the train in the SF pts then throwing it away to again throwing it away in Spectre. Only the ppk will ever look right for Bond, but perhaps it really is time for a change.

It was either that.....or the priesthood

Re: What Handgun Will Bond Use in Bond 25? [Potential Spoilers]

@ ASP9mm, Thanks for the heads up. A short appearance is okay by me, its much better than not appearing at all in the movie.
