U.S. Marshals is the 1998 follow-up to the 1993 film The Fugitive. Tommy Lee Jones returns as Chief Deputy US Marshal Samuel Gerard, who along with his team are determined to track down an escaped prisoner (Wesley Snipes) who may be a covert CIA assassin. The film was directed by Stuart Baird (Executive Decision).
The following weapons were used in the film U.S. Marshals:
2nd Generation Glock 22 pistols appears in the film as the main sidearm of Chief Deputy US Marshal Samuel Gerard (Tommy Lee Jones) and his fellow Marshals. Later in the film, U.S. Diplomatic Security Service Special Agent John Royce (Robert Downey Jr.) can be seen using one when he and Gerard are pursuing Mark Sheridan (Wesley Snipes) aboard the cargo ship, breaking up a fight between Sheridan and Gerard by shooting Sheridan in the shoulder after Sheridan gets ahold of Gerard's Glock and pistol-whips Gerard in the back with it. Near the end of the film, Royce attempts to kill Gerard and Sheridan in Sheridan's hospital room, but finds that Gerard has anticipated this and unloaded it when he wasn't looking. When Gerard points out in the hospital that Royce is now carrying a Glock instead of his Taurus PT945 (see below), Royce replies, "Yeah, Glock .40, just like yours". Gerard also incorrectly states that the G22 can fire underwater (while it can fire a few rounds, it would likely still jam).
When Royce and Gerard first meet at the plane crash site, Gerard asks to see what kind of weapon Royce is carrying. After jokingly responding, "A big one, how 'bout you?", Royce produces a stainless steel Taurus PT945 which Gerard calls a "nickel-plated sissy pistol", advising Royce to get a Glock instead. This alone is a potential inaccuracy, as the standard sidearm for DSS special agents is the SIG P228 or P229. During the manhunt in the swamp, Sheridan takes the pistol from Royce and holds him at gunpoint in a short standoff with Gerard before shooting Gerard in his bulletproof vest in order to make his escape. Royce manages to retake the weapon and later uses the pistol to mortally wound Deputy Marshal Noah Newman (Tom Wood) when Newman catches Royce about to kill Sheridan in cold blood at the Lorelei Building. Royce then tries to pass it off as Sheridan's gun by filing off the serial number, but Gerard recognizes it from their earlier meeting. This particular pistol would later be reused for an episode of NCIS.
When boarding the prisoner transport flight, Gerard removes both his Glock 22 and a sub-compact Glock variant that he carries in an ankle holster as a backup weapon. This is most likely a Glock 27, which is chambered for the same .40 Smith & Wesson cartridge as his Glock 22. After this scene, the baby Glock is not seen for the rest of the film, likely lost in the crash-landing incident.
Following the car crash in Chicago, firefighters responding to the accident find a blue steel Kahr K9 hidden in the glove-box of Sheridan's tow truck (although the gun is mostly covered up by the holster it's in, you can see "K9" on the end of the slide). The discovery of this weapon is what leads to Sheridan being arrested for illegal possession of a firearm (because ownership of a handgun in Chicago was illegal at the time of this film).
Colt Gold Cup National Match Enhanced
Upon reaching New York City, Sheridan meets with an old friend he calls "Sarge" (Lorenzo Clemons) who provides him with materials needed in his mission to exonerate himself, including a stainless steel Colt Gold Cup National Match Enhanced. He then uses it when he confronts Agent Barrows (Rick Snyder) in the cemetery, pistol-whipping him in the face and holding him at gunpoint with it. He then uses it in the ensuing shootout with Xian Chen, and while being pursued to the Lorelei Building by Gerard and company. Interestingly, Gerard can be seen holding this pistol in promotional material for the film, but never uses one on-screen.
A Chicago police officer who arrests Sheridan at Chicago Memorial Hospital appears to have a Beretta 92FS in his holster.
Smith & Wesson 1006
A Kentucky State Trooper who stops Earl's (Ray Toler) semi-truck at a roadblock is seen with what appears to be a Smith & Wesson 1006 in his holster. The S&W 1006 was carried by the Kentucky State Police at the time of the film's production.
Bersa Thunder 380
When Sheridan hijacks a semi truck belonging to a man named Earl (Ray Toler), he also takes possession of the driver's Ruger SP101 revolver and some extra ammo for it. After Sheridan releases his hostages and they speak to the marshals, Biggs incorrectly tells Gerard that the five-shot SP101 has, "6 [cartridges] in the gun." (His SP101 is clearly the 5-round .357 version.) Sheridan later uses the SP101 during the manhunt in the swamp, holding Royce at gunpoint with it.
Smith & Wesson Model 36
When Royce finds his Glock 22 has been emptied on him, he makes a last ditch effort to kill Gerard by drawing a nickel plated Smith & Wesson Model 36 before being gunned down. It does not appear to be the Ruger SP101 that Sheridan used to hold Royce hostage in the swamp, as previously mentioned.
A Deputy Sheriff is seen with a Colt Python in his holster at the site of the plane crash.
Remington 870 shotguns make several appearances in the film, first in the hands of the guards on the plane following the crash-landing, then in the hands of locals helping with the swamp manhunt.
NYPD officers outside the Lorelei Building are seen holding Ithaca 37 shotguns, one with an extended magazine tube and one with a standard tube.
A Maverick Model 88 shotgun with pistol grip is recovered by Gerard from a baby's crib during the fugitive arrest in the beginning of the film. The Maverick 88 is an inexpensive version of the Mossberg 500. One of the suspects tries to get this weapon so that he can shoot Deputy Marshal Noah Newman, but Newman shoots him with his Glock 22 in the shoulder before he can do this. Gerard later takes this weapon and uses it to intimidate another suspect. It is noted as a Maverick 88 by its safety moved from the receiver tang to the trigger guard.
A fugitive is briefly seen holding a MAC-11 before being disarmed by Deputy Marshal Noah Newman.
Colt Sporter II Carbine
During the cemetery scene, Sheridan and the Deputies come under fire by U.N. Cultural Attache of China Xian Chen (Michael Paul Chan) wielding a Colt Sporter II Carbine fitted with an Aimpoint 9000L red dot scope and sound suppressor from the roof of the funeral home.
Heckler & Koch SR9(T)
During the swamp scene, a Kentucky State Police officer in a helicopter can briefly be seen with a Heckler & Koch SR9(T) sniper rifle, loaded with a 20-round magazine.
Orion Flare Gun
When Sheridan is found in the swamps, Gerard and a local boatman fire Orion Flare Guns into the air to mark their positions for backup to arrive.
XL-17 Pen Gun
While on board the prisoner transport flight, a prisoner retrieves an XL-17 pen gun hidden in a roll of toilet paper in the lavatory. The prisoner then attempts to use the weapon to kill Sheridan but fails, the shot shattering a window of the plane and causing an explosive decompression that sucks the would-be assassin and several other prisoners and guards out of the plane and forces an emergency landing. Of course, a single bullet hole cannot cause explosive decompression in real life.
Like most typical Hollywood films, we see that bullets spark against the oddest things, when most bullets don't even spark on metal.
