The Fugitive is the 1993 feature film adaptation of the television series of the same name that starred David Janssen. In the film, Harrison Ford stars as Richard Kimble, a vascular surgeon wrongly convicted of murdering his wife and upon escaping from custody, is determined to find the true killer. During the course of the film, he is pursued by a team of Deputy US Marshals led by Sam Gerard (Tommy Lee Jones). The film was directed by Andrew Davis and would be nominated for seven Academy Awards including Best Picture and Tommy Lee Jones would also receive the award for Best Supporting Actor award for his role in the film. Gerard and several other characters would be later featured in the 1998 follow-up film U.S. Marshals. The film would also inspire a television revival that aired from 2000 to 2001.
The following weapons were used in the film The Fugitive:
WARNING! THIS PAGE CONTAINS SPOILERS!
Deputy US Marshal Samuel Gerard (Tommy Lee Jones) carries a Glock 22 as his sidearm of choice. When in the sewer, he trips and drops his Glock and Kimble takes it. When Kimble is out of sight, he draws a backup Glock 22 out of a vest compartment and uses it for the rest of the film. In a notable scene, Gerard fires several shots at the fleeing Kimble inside the Chicago City Hall lobby, which are stopped by a bulletproof security barrier as Kimble escapes through Daley Plaza.
The Glock 22 from this movie was eventually auctioned off by Heritage Auctions in 2018 (pictures from the listing appear below). This film appears to be the first-ever cinema appearance of the Glock 22, which would also later serve as Gerard's sidearm in the sequel U.S. Marshals.

; the weapon pictured here is the actual screen-used weapon carried by Tommy Lee Jones in the film, which was sold in a 2018 auction
by Heritage Auctions. Note the slide markings indicating the model and caliber.
Opposite view of the screen-used Glock 22 from the film, showing the filed-down barrel lock-up (a notable indication that the weapon is blank-adapted). This image also reveals the weapon's serial number (ZU747), which indicates that the pistol was made in February 1992.
"I didn't kill my wife!"
Dr. Richard Kimble (Harrison Ford
) recovers Gerard's Glock 22 and points it at Gerard.
After Kimble leaves with his Glock 22, Gerard opens his fanny pack compartment to draw his backup gun. Note the dual magazine holster that appears to have two 15-round Beretta 92
magazines. Since Gerard does not carry a Beretta and is, in fact, a huge Glock fan (further proven in the sequel, U.S. Marshals
), this was likely a result of the costume designer.

he holds behind his back as he and the other Marshals prepare to arrest the other escaped fugitive, Copeland (Eddie Bo Smith Jr.
). Bad idea to load a gun with your finger on the trigger!

Closeup of Gerard's Glock. Note that there are two locking pins above the trigger that indicating that this is a genuine Glock 22 and that the guide rod, visible beneath the barrel, is closed-tip, single-stage, indicating that this is a post-1991 2nd Generation Glock (and therefore, brand-new at the time of filming).
Gerard fires his Glock while in Daley Center.
Deputy US Marshal Cosmo Renfro (Joe Pantoliano) carries a Glock 19, the compact 9x19mm version of the Glock 17. Initially, this pistol appears to be his backup sidearm only, as he is also seen carrying a SIG-Sauer P226 during the early scenes of the film (notably: the chase in the tunnel and dam), but later he switches to the Glock 19 exclusively. He is seen drawing his pistol during the raid on a fugitive's house as well as when closing in on Kimble in the laundry room. Dr. Charles Nichols (Jeroen Krabbé) commandeers the pistol after knocking Renfro unconscious with an I-beam. In the tunnel scene, Deputy Marshal Noah Newman (Tom Wood) is also seen using a Glock 19, though he later switches to a nickel-plated SIG P226 (seen below).

, the .40 S&W equivalent.
A nickel SIG-Sauer P226 is seen the hands of Deputy Marshal Noah Newman (Tom Wood) as his personal sidearm, though for some reason, he uses a Glock 19 during the tunnel chase. Copeland (Eddie "Bo" Smith, Jr.) gets ahold of the weapon and holds Newman hostage with it. Both Deputy Marshal Robert Biggs (Daniel Roebuck) and Cosmo Renfro (Joe Pantoliano) carry regular black P226s as their sidearms, though Renfro is later seen using only his backup Glock 19.

Frederick Sykes (Andreas Katsulas) tries to kill Kimble on an El-train armed with a Smith & Wesson Model 66 .357 stainless snub-nose revolver. They struggle and Kimble ends up disarming him (no pun intended) of his weapon. Kimble drops Sykes's Model 66 into a mailbox after the fight is over.

Kimble disposes of the officer's Colt Trooper (and Sykes's Model 66) by stuffing them both in a mailbox. The postal worker who empties that box will be very surprised! Note the shape of the ejector shroud and the barrel ribbing, helping to identify it as a Trooper MKV.
The old prison guard (Richard Riehle) uses a Mossberg 500 to shoot an inmate who shanks another guard with a sharpened toothbrush handle. It switches to a Remington 870 in some shots (see below). Mossberg shotguns are held by correctional officers guarding the bus that Kimble and the other inmates get onto.
