    I'm sure somebody on here can figure this out. I saw these photos of the new girl playing in Tomb Raider, these guns are not familiar to me.

    For all of the photos:

    http://thesuperficial.com/2008/08/al...amp;bfm_page=0

    Here are a few:






    They seem like SIGs with extended barrels and a funky compensator thing that appears to add to muzzle flip if it actually diverts the blast downward. The only SIG with a grip like that (That I know of) is the 250, but the decocker/safety don't look like that on the 250. The slide is definitely SIG-like. Is this some strange mixture of multiple SIGs? Is it not a SIG at all? I cannot, for the life of me, determine the make of these guns!


    Also note that in the top picture she appears to be pulling the trigger with the gun in her right hand.

    They appear to be H&K USP Match pistols. That funky extension at the front is a muzzle weight to prevent flip.

    Look like HK USP Match pistols to me...the same ones used in the Tomb Raider with Angelina Jolie.

    I'd love to help but I get Acces Denied when I try to view the link, and Red X's on the images themselves.

    I can view Image shack or google images if you host them there.

    Gotcha, I've never seen any Tomb Raider movies, but this H&K USP Match thing makes sense to me.





    I knew I could trust you guise! :P

    Now that we know what they are is it necessary to point out, looking at the second picture, that if she actually fired that pistol, given her thump position and large gap between the web of her hand and the beavertail, that she would be lucky to even hold on to the pistol let alone have a follow-up shot? At least they gave Angelina Jolie training with certified instructors who taught her proper grip and technique. This new chick would be lucky to handle a squirt gun without hurting herself or someone else.

    Contrast the new chick's grip with Angelina Jolie's grip. Jolie's web is tight up under the beavertail, her fingers are together and tight up under the trigger guard and her finger is along the frame rather than on the trigger.

    Given the mirror wall and the floor, it looks like a rehearsal hall to me. If that is the case, she might be practicing some sort of action scene, and just maybe there is some coach nearby who might give her pointers on what needs to be corrected to pull off the scene.

    Howsomever, Hollywierd is not known for insisting on technical correctness when it comes to action scenes, so she might just be getting the camera angles down. CGA will be able to fill in the muzzle blast later.

    stay safe.

    I agree, it was just annoying me that I didn't know what it was. That compensator/weight thing looks like incredibly cheap plastic. From certain angles it doesn't even seem to fit properly.

    Honestly I'm not that worried about some lady I have no chance of ever even meeting. This was posted on other forums and I couldn't figure out what the guns were, so I had to ask you guys (GUISE).

    According to the linked article, she isn't going to be in any of the movies or anything. She will just be doing some publicity appearances and tv ads.

    And there's the fact that Angelina Jolie owns and shoots guns in real life, which adds +10 to the hotness factor. Even look at her pose, her finger is indexed properly while that other chick has her fingers on the trigger while posing.

    Most definitely.... And before I knew, I figured she'd be lock-step with all the other Hollywood hoplophobes, what with her & Brad's humanitarian activities....
