Mercury Rising is a 1998 thriller starring Bruce Willis as Art Jeffries, an FBI agent who must protect a young autistic boy from being eliminated by government operatives after the boy unintentionally cracks an unbreakable cypher. The film was directed by Harold Becker (Sea of Love) and also co-stars Alec Baldwin and Chi McBride.
The following weapons were used in the film Mercury Rising:
Smith & Wesson Sigma Subcompact
FBI Special Agent Art Jeffries (Bruce Willis) carries as his sidearm throughout the film the Subcompact version of the Smith & Wesson Sigma. Near the end of the film, Art (Bruce Willis) tells the FBI SWAT team leader (James MacDonald) "I got a 9mm down on the sidewalk", referring to his Sigma. This weapon is actually chambered in .380 ACP (9x17mm or 9mm Short), which would make this line of dialogue a slight inaccuracy.
A SIG-Sauer P226 is the sidearm carried by the majority of the FBI agents seen in the film. Art Jeffries (Bruce Willis) is seen with what appears to be a full-size P226 holstered during a conversation in an FBI office. Special Agent Tommy B. Jordan (Chi McBride) also is seen with the handgun. The SIG also is used by Shayes (Peter Stormare) in the confrontation on the train. A SIG is also pulled by Lt. Colonel Nicholas Kudrow (Alec Baldwin) on the rooftop at the end of the film. The same gun is later used by Art.
Heckler & Koch P7M8
A Heckler & Koch P7M8 is used by Peter Burrell (Lindsey Lee Ginter) both with and without a suppressor and is left at the murder scene. When examining the crime scene later, Art asks if the father is so broke, how could he afford the $1500 handgun.
