Smith & Wesson 4506

Glock 22

Hank Schrader shows off his issue Glock 22 during the party in the first episode. He actually refers to it as a Glock 22 and praises the power of the .40-caliber round over 9x19mm (claiming to have seen the latter cartridge ricochet off a car windshield). He uses the Glock 22 in his shootout with Tuco in the episode “Grilled” of season two. It can be seen occasionally throughout season two and three.

Heckler & Koch Mark 23

A Heckler & Koch Mark 23 is used with a suppressor by Mike (Jonathan Banks) in Episode 3×03, “Full Measures”. The suppressor he uses is a fake “Hollywood suppressor” which screws into the barrel of the pistol (via the threading for the blank adapter), rather than onto the exterior threading. Mike uses the Mark 23 again in Episode 4×04, “Bullet Points” to take out a pair of Ciudad Juárez cartel gunmen who ambush a refrigerated truck transporting methamphetamine (though he uses it without the suppressor in this episode).

Assault Rifles

M4A1 Carbine

An M4A1 Carbine is used by Tuco (sometimes with an ACOG scope) in Episode 2×02, “Grilled”, when he takes Walt and Jesse hostage. Walt later takes this weapon from him when Tuco is bashed over the head with a rock by Jesse. However, Tuco gets it out of the car when DEA agent Hank, who is also Walt’s brother-in-law, arrives at Tuco’s hideout. DEA agents also use M4A1s when they arrest Jesse in ‘Bit By a Dead Bee’. The M4A1 appears again in Episode 4×06, “Cornered” in the hands of one of Gustavo Fring’s (Giancarlo Esposito’s) gunmen riding in the back of the refrigerated truck.

Mossberg 500

Clovis, a tow truck and junkyard owner who is a cousin of an associate of Jesse’s, uses a shortened Mossberg 500 to threaten an intruder sleeping in Jesse’s RV, but put up his gun when the intruder turns out to be Jesse himself (S2E4, “Down”). Specifically, the weapon appears to be a cut down 500AT; the stock has either been shortened to, or replaced with, a pistol grip, but the barrel appears to be original as it has the original bead sight (thereby narrowly escaping being a “short-barreled shotgun” for purposes of the 1934 National Firearms Act).
