Purge, The (2013)
The Purge is a 2013 horror/thriller set in a near future United States where the government has granted one 12 hour period during the year where all crimes are legal. Ethan Hawke stars in the film as James Sandin, a security systems salesman whose family is put in danger when their home is threatened by those participating in the Purge. The film would spawn a media franchise which includes 2014's The Purge: Anarchy and 2016's The Purge: Election Year and 2021's The Forever Purge in addition to the 2018 prequel The First Purge and a 2018 television series that premiered on the USA Network.
The following weapons were used in the film The Purge:
WARNING! THIS PAGE CONTAINS SPOILERS!
Taurus Raging Bull
James also keeps a snub-nosed Taurus Raging Bull in his safe and keeps it on him until he gives it to his son Charlie when he sends him to hide in the basement.
Henry (Tony Oller) uses a IJ-70 when he tries to kill James. Dante Bishop (AKA the "Bloody Stranger") (Edwin Hodge) later uses it to defend himself from the Purgers breaking into the house.
After giving his Raging Bull to his son, James Sandin (Ethan Hawke) switches his sidearm to a Kimber Warrior.
A Ruger KP95 with a stainless slide is also seen in James' safe. Mary Sandin (Lena Headey) later takes it when she goes to look for her daughter.
When the Purgers break into the house, Mary trades her Ruger P95 for a SIG-Sauer P226.
Smith & Wesson 915
One of the Purgers and Dante Bishop carry what appear to be Smith & Wesson 915s.
When the Purgers break into the house, Mary arms herself with a stainless Taurus PT92AFS.
Beretta 92FS Inox
The "Polite Leader" (Rhys Wakefield) uses a Beretta 92FS Inox to kill one of his goons.
Desert Eagle Mark XIX
One of the Purgers also carries a chrome Desert Eagle Mark XIX.
A Purger uses a 2nd Generation Glock 19 in an attempt to kill James.
Some of the neighbors use Taurus PT945 handguns.
Smith & Wesson M&P40
Footage shows (possibly) a Phoenix Police Department officer firing a Smith & Wesson M&P40 at a Purger during the 2022 Purge. Given in-universe, police departments are suspended during the Purge, it is unknown the exact context of the situation. In actuality, the footage is of the 2011 Detroit Police Department shootout committed by Lamar Moore. At the time of the shooting, the Detroit Police Department had been re-issued the Smith & Wesson M&P40.
Purge Footage shows a Purger firing a Beretta 92FS during the 2017 Purge in Sioux Falls, South Dakota. In actuality, it is stock footage of Korean store owners during the 1992 Los Angeles Riots.
Purge footage of the 2017 Purge in Sioux Falls, South Dakota shows a Purger firing what appears to be a Walther PP.
The Purger in Sioux Falls is also seen holding a Glock 17. While barely visible in the film, the full footage shows that the man is indeed carrying a Glock.
In the "Behind the Scenes" footage, a Purger is seen with an Intratec TEC-DC9.
Mossberg 590 Chainsaw
James keeps a Mossberg 590 Chainsaw in his safe as well. He later uses it to kill the Purgers who broke into his house.
Mr. Cali (Tom Yi) uses an Ithaca 37 with an extended magazine tube. Mary later confiscates it.
Mossberg 500 Mariner Cruiser
The "Polite Stranger" (Rhys Wakefield) also uses a Mossberg 500 Mariner Cruiser.
Purge Footage shows a Purger armed with a Mossberg 500 engaging in a shootout with off-duty Phoenix Police Department officers. In actuality, the footage is of Lamar Moore's shootout with the Detroit Police Department in 2011. He had used a 20 gauge Mossberg 500.
In the "Behind the Scenes" footage, a Purger is seen with a SPAS-12 shotgun sans folding stock.
Sub Machine Guns
Heckler & Koch MP5K
One of the Purgers uses a Heckler & Koch MP5K.
Cooper (One of the Purgers) uses a Colt M16A2.
Diemaco C7 LSW
A Purger is seen with a Diemaco C7 LSW. Another Purger is seen with one in "Behind the Scenes" footage.
IMBEL MD-97 LC
One of the neighbors uses what appears to be an IMBEL MD-97 LC. Purge footage in the intro shows a man firing an assault rifle. While it is barely visible, it is possible that the actor is just re-using the IMBEL MD-97 LC, as it does not match the features of the other rifles seen in the film.
