Whether you are a fan of John Woo movies or like to watch Vin Diesel drive cars while dodging gunfire, there are plenty of common guns in blockbuster action movies. Many of these firearms are well known and regularly available through user listings on GunBroker.com. If you want to try the guns John Wick or John McClane wielded when you head to the range, search for some of these iconic guns on GunBroker.com.
The Beretta 92 and its variants are extremely common in action movies. If you see a Beretta 9mm, chances are it’s a 92, 92F, 92FS, or the M9. Staff Sergeant William James, played by Jeremy Renner, uses the original 92 in The Hurt Locker. Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn uses a 92FS in The Suicide Squad. The iconic gun has appeared in everything from Zombieland: Double Tap and Kingsmen: The Secret Service to 21 Jump Street and Inception. John McClane famously had a 92F strapped to his back in Die Hard. If it’s a John Woo movie, expect to see the Beretta 92 dual-wielded, often by Chow Yun-Fat. If it’s an action movie, there’s a good chance you’ll see a Beretta 92 at some point, and you can find tons of listings on GunBroker.com.
Does a movie feature a SWAT team or special operators? They’re probably wielding a Heckler & Koch MP5K, often fitted with a suppressor. It’s also often used by henchmen in movies, such as Hard Boiled, True Lies, Lucky Number Slevin, Fast & Furious, and Blade. Protagonists aren’t shy about using the MP5K, either, with Martin Lawrence’s Detective Marcus Burnett using it in Bad Boys, Keanu Reeve’s Neo using it in The Matrix, and both Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie using an MP5K in Mr. and Mrs. Smith. It’s a go-to submachine gun in many movies and a go-to for many GunBroker.com users.
The Glock Family
If an action hero uses a generic handgun, there’s a good chance it’s a Glock. The most common are the Glock 17 and 19, both chambered in 9mm. From John Wick to The Avengers, Jack Reacher to Tenet, The Raid to Bad Boys, Glocks are ubiquitous in movies. Even in the far future of Mad Max: Fury Road, you can still see this iconic Austrian handgun.
The M16 Series
Action stars using a rifle are likely to have something from the M16 series. This includes the M16, the M4, and the commercially available AR 15. If it’s a Vietnam-era film, such as Full Metal Jacket, you are guaranteed to see the M16. Val Kilmer is famous for his character’s use of the Colt Model 733 M16A2 in Heat. It may be easier to name action movies set in the 20th century and later that do not feature some model of the M16 than to list all of them that do.
