Lara Croft: Tomb Raider (2001)

Lara Croft: Tomb Raider is the 2001 feature film adaptation of the popular Tomb Raider videogame series. Angelina Jolie stars as the iconic adventure heroine who searches around the world for a mysterious relic. The film was directed by Simon West and cast included Daniel Craig, Iain Glen, and Jolie's real-life father Jon Voight, who portrays Lara's father in the film. Jolie would reprise her role in the 2003 sequel Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life.


The following weapons were used in the film Lara Croft: Tomb Raider:

Handguns

Heckler & Koch USP Match

The signature pistols of Lara Croft (Angelina Jolie) in the film are Heckler & Koch USP Match with stainless slides. The handguns are 9mm models, not .45 ACP as previously believed. This is evident as throughout much of the film, Lara's USP's are equipped with JetFunnels (H&K's fancy name for flared magazine wells) and the corresponding 18-round magazines. As in the original videogame, she keeps her handguns prominently holstered on her thighs and almost always draws them both at the same time. She also carries custom mag holders to facilitate quicker reloading of both handguns.

Walther P99

Manfred Powell (Iain Glen) carries a Walther P99 through much of the film, most notably during the shootout with the statues at the temple of light and during his fight with Lara at the end of the movie. Alex West (Daniel Craig) is seen using one as well (kind of ironic, huh?).

Walther P99 9mm. Note the ramped trigger guard, small slide serrations, closed and proprietary accessory rail, short magazine release and slightly more curved 'tail' of the pre-2004 models.

Smith & Wesson 5946

A Smith & Wesson 5946 is used in the deleted card game scene.

Smith & Wesson Model 10

Manfred Powell is seen pulling a Smith & Wesson Model 10 revolver on Lord Richard Croft (Jon Voight) in a vision Lara has after obtaining the triangle.

Smith & Wesson Model 10 HB (heavy barrel) revolver (Post 1950s Model) - .38 Special. Later incarnations of the Model 10 had a non-tapered heavy barrel, which leads it to be commonly mistaken for a .357 revolver.

Beretta 92FS

Alex West (Daniel Craig) is seen loading his Beretta 92FS after coming out of the shower and hearing someone sneak into his room. The Beretta 92FS is also seen in a deleted scene in which Lara breaks up Alex West's poker game.

Lara Croft (Angelina Jolie) acquires a Steyr TMP from a member of the raid team and uses it to score several kills.

Rifles

AKS-74U

Alex West (Daniel Craig) also carries an AKS-74U while in the jungle. He aims it at Lara when she's cornered at the waterfall.

Heckler & Koch G36K

Heckler & Koch G36Ks fitted with export-type optics are employed by the Illuminati operatives during the raid at Croft Manor with suppressors and in the expedition to the Arctic; all were fitted with laser sights. They were also used in Cambodia without said laser sights.

Shotguns

Remington 870 Shotgun (Nickel-plated)

Lara's butler Hillary (Chris Barrie) is seen taking out a nickel-plated Remington 870 shotgun fitted with a pistol grip during the raid on the manor. The shotgun is NOT the Stainless Steel 870 Marine Magnum, but the classic 870 riot configuration with a nickel finish.

Other

Lara's Manor Armory

During the raid on her manor, Lara is seen trying to open her armory, which contains several weapons, including a Vz. 61 "Skorpion", a Steyr TMP, Heckler & Koch MP5's and a SPAS-12 shotgun.

Improvised Gun - SnapOn™ Impact Hammer (pistol)

In the film, Lara uses a SnapOn™ Impact Hammer or Air Hammer as a weapon to knock out an attacker. Though the device is very 'pistol-like' in shape, the manufacturers go to great lengths 'not' to call it a 'gun'.

Behind The Scenes Arms Training

Angelina Jolie was reportedly trained by a former SAS member, name not known at the moment. At least it looks like she took the training seriously, but I don't know about the training on dual wielding handguns.
