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:



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.

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.

Beretta 92FS

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.

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.
