The list is done in a version 1.0 and have been posted as WEAPONS OF GTA IV
The list is still open for comments and discussion and will still be updated when needed. Enjoy
13/8-07 G3SG-1 specs and new SPAS-12 picture added
7/8-07 Micro uzi, SPAS-12 and Remington Model 870 specs added
6/8-07 Desert Eagle specs added
4/8-07 Stanley Retractable Blade Knive added
And here is the result.
I've put in the specs for the real weapons. Since rockstar seems to be going for the realistic approach this time, maybe the weapons in the game will handle like their real life counterparts in terms of: damage, speed, acuracy, mag capacity etc.
This one is pretty obvious, i think. There are lots of good screes showing this gun. The model is pretty easy to make in a game and therefor also easy to recognise. Not only is the Glock probably supposed to be a G17, it's a first or second gen version, as opposed to the third gen version in the photo. But it is kinda hard to tell if it is the 1st, 2nd or 3rd generation version of the gun, perhaps a mix-up.

Desert eagle lookalike
This one is defednely not the Glock 17, but what is it then, it looks big and it have a vertical butterfly profil seen from the front. My guess is that it is a Desert Eagle. Becaurse of the muzzle shape beeing nearly unique in Desert Eagle design, the safety switch also has a distinct shape which can be recognized in that picture, and the trigger guard has a distinct shape which is not rounded nor square but bulges slightly inwards. The only thing that is not 'desert eagle' about that gun is the barrel which is extended slightly out of the slide which no production desert eagle has ever had - any barrel extension has been a part of the slide. My take on that is a fault on the artists' part.

At fist i thought that is was an Ingram MAC-11, But if you look clser, you can see a difference underneathe the tip of the barrel, where the ingram is flat, the micro uzi isent. Rockstar got this model pretty close to the original. Notice that the ingame model has a high capacity magasine on it (could this be an indication of costimizable wepons and/or weapon upgrades?)

Heckler & Koch MP5 N(A3)
The world famous SMG Mp5 is probaly on of the most common weapons in games. It is pretty hard to tell wich model it is, since the foram looks a bit wide, and there is som 2 graphics on the side wich could be the indicator for single, auto and secure. Still i think is resembles the A3, most likely a A3 Navy N(A3). An if we take the art in consideration, its yet another hint that the weapons will have upgrades, see the flashlight. flashlights. But since its not at screen its not certain it will be in the game:)

|Mazine Capacity||15- or 30-round detachable box|
This one is one of the more difficult to recognize. But after running the trailer a coulpe of times in slow, i managed to get this shot were i IMHO thik it looks most like a M4 which makes sense, since ot is another favorit weapon amongst game developers. Also this is commonly used among special police forces in the US (such as SWAT).Some has surgested that it might be a HK416, but the one in the game has a triangular front sight like an M4, whereas the HK416 has a flip-up sight. The HK416 also has a "seamless" quad-rail on the front instead of the round handguards seen in the trailer. Otherwise, the HK416 is an M4, only with a piston-driven bolt rather than direct gas impingement. Notice that the M4 havent got anything mounted on the RAIL system (see picture) on top. Not even a sight (carry handle) like the real life picture one, wich isent normal (could this be an indication of costimizable wepons)
|Cartridge||5.56 x 45 mm NATO|

AK-47 with ACE folding stock
This one, is proberly the one people argue the most about.. Many people think it is a Ak-74. Proberly because of the folding stock. The Kalashnikov appears to be an AK-47 (or one of the other combloc copies) with an ACE folding stock (much like the ones on Ak-74's). Like this, only with wood furniture on the front. Since the AK-47 dosent come with this stock standart it has led me to belive that the stock might be cotomiserble, perhps adding a feature such as being able to conseal the weapon under a coat or in a bag, perhaps you will get wanted in the game if you are seen carrying a weapon in the open street, with the new realisem approach an wanted levle system. Or the foldable stock could be foldede when entering a vehicle, making it possible to make drive-bys with it.
|Killing range||m 1500|
|Practical Rate of Fire||600 rds/min|
Heckler & Koch G3SG-1
This is the sniper version of the german G3A3. It is basically a bit longer G3A3 with a scope and foldable legs in the front. The artist seems to have choosen a different scope, but otherwise its seemes to be a match.
|Cartridge||7.62x51mm NATO (.308 Winchester)|
|Bullets initial speed||803m/s|
|Practical Rate of Fire||500-650 rounds/minute (varies due to version)|
It defetnely look like the tactical shotgun, SPASS 12. Also noticed that the one the cop is hold has a added folding stock. Again this could mean costermiserble weapons or different versions of weapons.. perhaps the one with the folding stock has an added accuracy, and can be folded to hide under a coat or in a bag.
|Chamber||2 3/4" (70 mm)|
|Capacity||8 rounds in underbarrel tube magazine|
Remington Model 870 (Sawed off)
Well, im not that good at shotguns, so if you can help with this one it would be great. I think that it is a sawed off version of one of the Remington Model 870's. The one in the picture is the Exprees. The red lines indicate where it has been cut.
|Remington Model 870|
|Capacity||up to 7 or 8 rounds in underbarrel tube magazine|
Stanley Retractable Blade Knive
If this will appear as a weapon in the game is kinda hard to tell, since it only appear in the hand of some guy in a cutscene. But since it is used as a weapon by him lets assume that it is. I think it is the Stanley knive since it is the Retractable Blade Knive that look most like it out of the limited amount that i know of. But if you look at the picture, it seems to have the same screw on the side, and the guys thomb is placed where the blade scroller is, and it seems to have the same curve on the back if you take the angle, in wich he is holde it, to account.
