Jack Reacher is a 2012 thriller directed by Christopher McQuarrie (The Way of the Gun). The film is an adaptation of the novel One Shot by Lee Child (who does a cameo in the film as a cop), who created a series of novels featuring the title character. Tom Cruise stars as Jack Reacher, a former US Army investigator living off the grid who emerges after being called upon by a former Army sniper who is accused of a seemingly random shooting of five people in Pittsburgh. The film also co-stars Rosamund Pike, Jai Courtney, David Oyelowo, Robert Duvall and director Werner Herzog in a rare acting role.
The following weapons were used in the film Jack Reacher:
Detective Emerson (David Oyelowo) uses a third-generation Glock 19 as his sidearm. He carries it in an IWB (Inside the Waistband) holster. Helen Rodin (Rosamund Pike) also briefly handles the gun in the film, when she hands it to Jack Reacher (Tom Cruise).
Colt Government Model
A distraught father of one of the shooting victims has a Colt Government Model sitting on his table when he speaks with Helen Rodin (Rosamund Pike). Later, a thug tries to shoot Jack Reacher with a slightly customized Colt Government Model with a skeleton hammer before being disarmed by him.
Ruger 22/45 Lite
Smith & Wesson Model 442
Pittsburgh PD SWAT officers use M4A1 carbines with various attachments in the film. Private Military Contractors in a flashback to Iraq are also seen with M4A1 carbines. Charlie (Jai Courtney) also uses a heavily customized M4A1 fitted with an angled vertical foregrip, dual optics, side-mounted back-up holosight, tactical flashlight, Magpul PMAG, and a laser designator as his back-up rifle during the climax. Jack Reacher (Tom Cruise) also uses this rifle at a later point. Reacher takes off all the aiming devices before entering a close-quarters situation, having no use for them.
One of the Pittsburgh PD SWAT officers uses an M16A4 fitted with a bipod and a scope when responding to the shooting.
SIG P556 SWAT / SG 550 hybrid
All of the henchmen employed by the Zec (Werner Herzog) use SIG P556 SWAT hybrid rifles during the finale. Jack Reacher (Tom Cruise) uses one with an Aimpoint sight after taking out a henchman with a rock. The rifle used by Reacher has been previously seen in the film Salt, and is a custom rifle that has a SIG SG 550 series lower receiver not seen on the actual P556.
Springfield M1A (Scoped)
Springfield M1A rifles is the main rifle seen in the film. A scoped M1A in a woodland camouflage scheme with a rail mount is used in the shootings in Pittsburgh, and is handled in various scenes by James Barr (Joseph Sikora), Charlie (Jai Courtney), Jack Reacher (Tom Cruise) and Detective Emerson (David Oyelowo). Barr is also seen using an M1A in desert camouflage and a makeshift suppressor (standing in for a M14 DMR) in a flashback to his experiences as an Army sniper in Iraq. U.S. Marine Corps Gunnery Sergeant, and gun range owner Cash (Robert Duvall) uses an M1A with a wooden stock to provide covering fire for Reacher in the finale.
