X-Men: First Class is the fifth film in the X-Men film franchise. The 2011 film is a prequel to the original X-Men and is set primarily during the early 1960s, notably at the height of the Cuban Missile Crisis. The film, which was directed by Matthew Vaughn, primarily examines the beginning of the friendship between Charles Xavier (who would become Professor X) and Erik Lehnserr (who would become Magneto). The majority of this cast, which includes Jennifer Lawrence and Nicholas Hoult, would be featured along with members of the original trilogy in 2014's X-Men: Days of Future Past.
The following weapons were used in the film X-Men: First Class:
WARNING! THIS PAGE CONTAINS SPOILERS!
A Luger P08 is used by Dr. Klaus Schmidt (Kevin Bacon) while testing Erik Lehnsherr's powers during the 1944 flashback. Later, an Argentinian bartender holds one on Erik (Michael Fassbender), who then kills him and uses the gun to finish off the remaining officer.

Charles Xavier (James McAvoy) uses a M1911A1 pistol when training with Erik. Erik is later seen holding it when he and some of the students watch President Kennedy's address. A Division X agent (Tony Curran) fires one at Sebastian Shaw (Kevin Bacon) during the Hellfire Club's assault. It is also seen holstered and used by various U.S. soldiers, notably the soldier in the truck heading to the General's palace.

Shaw is threatened with the M1911A1.

Charles thumbs back the hammer on an M1911A1 pistol. While not visible in a screenshot, this scene opens with the camera focused on the pistol's muzzle, then focuses on Charles, giving a clear view of the trademarks on the slide as it does this.
Another shot of the same scene. When Charles hands the pistol to Erik after this, Erik lowers the hammer.

Another shot of the same scene. Amusingly, Erik gestures at the TV with the pistol at one point in this scene, though as noted above the hammer is decocked.
The Soviet General (Rade Serbedzija) pulls a Tokarev TT-33 on Erik and Charles during the confrontation. Another is seen in the hands of a soldier on the Soviet battleship.

Colt Model 933 (mocked up as XM177E1)
Soldiers accompanying Charles, Erik, and Moria to the Soviet General's palace are armed with Colt Model 933 assault carbines modified by armorer David Fencl (The Hurt Locker, Iron Man) to resemble prototypes of the XM177/CAR-15. They are recognizable as M933s by the detachable carry handles and 6-position LE stocks, but the A2-type flash hiders have been removed and replaced with fake XM177-style flash hiders - Which would be anachronistic because CAR-15s were not invented with the configurations of the telescopic stock until the late 60s, which should instead be a fixed stock like the one on the M16. There were however prototypes of early CAR-15s in the early 60s, but they did not look like the ones in the movie.
Colt Model 933 with 4-position stock - 5.56x45mm

American soldiers aboard the Naval Blockade are armed with M16A1 Rifles. Since this movie took place during the Cuban missile Crisis in 1962, this rifle, like the CAR-15, is an anachronism because M16s were not issued to US military en mass until the onset of the Vietnam war and the fact that the M16A1 was not produced until 1968.

Mk2 Hand Grenade

A prototype version of the X-Jet appears near the end of the film. Hank/Beast designed it, and it is essentially a giant SR-71 Blackbird with VTOL capability and a passenger area. In the comics, the final X-Jet is actually called "Blackbird" and is said to be a follow-on to the SR-71 built by Lockheed and / or Stark Industries.
The X-Jet prototype soars through the confrontation between the U.S. and Soviet ships.
