Tom Cruise has a long and storied career as an actor, and many of those movies are action movies. He is known for doing his own stunts, including a HALO jump from a plane, holding on the side of a plane during takeoff, jumping between buildings, and hanging on the outside of the Burj Khalifa. He is also well-versed in using guns. If you are looking for firearms for sale on GunBroker.com, you may want to own some that Cruise has used in movies, from the Mission: Impossible Series to The Edge of Tomorrow. Here are some to look out for.
Mission: Impossible Series
The Edge of Tomorrow
Arguably the most famous of Tom Cruise’s movies, the Mission: Impossible series sees Cruise’s Ethan Hunt wielding a number of guns. He used a Beretta Cougar in the original movie as his main weapon of choice. However, it is not the only Beretta 9mm Hunt uses as he switches to a 92FS Brigadier and a 92FS Centurion in Mission: Impossible II. In later Mission: Impossible movies, he moves from the 92FS family to the SIG P226 family. Look for these premier handguns on GunBroker.com.
Collateral sees Cruise, playing the villain named Vincent, using an HK USP to show his skills and ruthlessness. Director Michael Mann noted in the DVD commentary that it was chambered in 45 ACP. Later, thanks to a little movie magic, Vincent’s suppressed Ruger MKII is as quiet as a whisper. He also uses an S&W 5906 that he takes off of a security guard.

Jack Reacher did not convince audiences that Tom Cruise made a good Jack Reacher, but he still had the gunplay. Between the two films, Reacher uses a Springfield M1A, a Colt M4A1, a SIG P556 SWAT, and a BCM CQB-11 KMR-A10. Much like Ethan Hunt, Jack Reacher uses a SIG P226 E2 in the second movie. Interestingly, the SIG P556 SWAT is a hybrid rifle and uses a SIG SG 550 lower that is not used on actual P556s. It was also used in the movie Salt, wielded by Angelina Jolie’s eponymous character.
Despite being a somewhat futuristic sci-fi movie, The Edge of Tomorrow is still grounded in realism. Cruise’s character, Major William Cage, uses a “combat jacket” exoskeleton to fight aliens. The guns used on it are black, stockless FN SCAR-Hs, despite the claim that it uses 556, making it a SCAR-L. Like many vehicle-mounted, remote-operated guns, it lacks a grip. In a continuity error, the grip reappears when it is taken off the combat jacket. Cage also uses a customized Colt M1911A1 fitted with a compensator and what appears to be a Benelli Supernova shotgun.
