the top of the gun or what i am assuming is the slide looks bulky, like a glock. that crazy handle/grip is new to me, looks more like a star trek phaser grip
The grip almost looks like a beefed up M4 style, especially angled like that.
My first thought was custom job. Then again they used a Masada for the rifle..........
Funky angle on the handle, im stumped.
If it's an auto with an external slide, there's too much angle on the backstrap. In operation, the heel of the slide will catch the meaty skin between the first knuckle and the thumb.
Then again, Tom's got small hands, so maybe he can make it work.
Are we thinking this is completely custom made due to the angle of the handle? Does anyone have additional pics?
Heres some shots ive found...
I was gonna have a go at the pistol, but I have just drawn up plans for the rifle so I will tackle this first..

Thanks, richoli! I am thinking we are going to have to model that piece.
A couple of screencaps of the pistol from the trailer.
Not an M4 grip. The base is way too wide. I would guess custom as well, but the first picture at the top of the thread makes me wonder if it was built off another found item, like a toy. Almost reminded me of the Nintendo Zapper gun to be honest but obviously not it.
The first picture appears to have a small panel to reveal a compartment (assuming to power the LEDs or what have you, plus the seam line running below and under the base of the pistol grip
Forgive my crappy drawing, this is the basic profile:
Now I'm thinking some kind of cordless screwdriver.
Are we sure it's a weapon? -I thought his character was supposed to be a maintenance worker or something...

Almost certainly custom. It could be shrouds over a real firearm, like the I Robot pistol, but it's not a found item. The silver bits in my drawing are either an existing firearm or they are machined.
In the movie it's not terribly clear whether the sidearms are projectile or energy. They sort of go 'pew! pew!'
I don't think there's a lot of muzzle flash.
'Non Official' screen caps aren't allowed, hence my drawing.
I think it's custom, I have the feeling the movies with scifi guns in the recent years are more and more shifting towards 3D printing.
Saw the movie last night in a Sneak Peak. It is his sidearm. Whats weird is there is kind of a clear plastic if i remember correctly where that open space is on the front of the cordless drill covering a similar type hole. Sure just coincidence but there are similarities.
I dont think they are energy based because in one scene a stripped down drone which seem to use the same technology as the gun's looks to have belt fed ammo hooked up to it.
Im with Birdy.
For the rifle they took a found gun and spiced it up.
Im guessing a found pistol, ditch the grip and shrouds. Prest-o Change-o.
Throwing this out there.....
Colt Delta Elite 1911. I only went there because of the red triangle logo and the oblong nose poking out of the shroud.

I'm also thinking some kind of power tool.
And all together-
This is gonna be interesting lol.
seems like that holster should have been turned around the other way for the gun to fit more secure....
I'm guessing that's another fancy target 22 pistol of some kind under a lot of custom plastic and aluminum.
got some shots from a making of, not great but they give a little more shape to the piece.
I will save you some time. Completely custom, you know all those threads about 3D printing props? Yeah that.
It doesn't fire anything, if I recall it blinks a white led for shot tracking.
