The A-Team was an American action television series that aired in the US on NBC for five seasons from 1983 to 1987. The show followed the adventures of a squad of Green Berets and their pilot who were wrongly convicted of a military crime during the Vietnam War and upon escaping from a maximum security prison, currently survive as soldiers of fortune in the Los Angeles underground. The show was known for its numerous gunfights where nearly no one is actually killed, and for its car chases where everyone is able to get out of their vehicles even after they experienced spectacular crashes. For its fifth and final season, the series underwent a radical overhaul, having the team actually being caught and subsequently working covertly for the US government. A feature film adaptation of the series was released in 2010 and starred Liam Neeson and Bradley Cooper.

The following weapons were used in the television series The A-Team:

MP40

One of Borofsky's men can be seen with a MP40 in Season 5's "The Say U.N.C.L.E. Affair". It appears to be plastic prop, since it has a filled in front sight and the barrel is visibly bent.

(Mock-up) Uzi

A MAC-10 mocked up to look like an Uzi with fake Uzi furniture mounted on the barrel and receiver can be seen being used by Murdock (Dwight Schultz). These same Uzi mock-ups can be seen in Raw Deal, The Dogs of War, and also Stripes (they were all built by a company called Special Effects Unlimited, which provided the weapons used in the first two seasons of this show).

Murdock (Dwight Schultz) blasting away at a group of bad guys. Note that he is wearing the ear muffs so the bullet hits on the barrel he is hiding in won't blow his eardrums when he is taking cover. They also show the barrel being lined with 1/4 inch steel sheeting, which explains it being bullet-proof.
Another mocked up MAC-10 in the hands of Dwight Schultz during "The Rabbit Who Ate Las Vegas".

Uzi Carbine

The Uzi Carbine was also a favourite weapon of bad guys on the show, and also used by members of the A-Team in some episodes.

Rifles

Ruger Mini 14 Stainless version with Folding stock

When the show began its full run in 1984, the producers decided not to have the team use different weapons every week, primarily due to budget concerns.(Let's face it, it was a cheap show). Beginning with its second season, the A-Team favored the Ruger Mini-14 with a factory folding stock in Stainless steel. Contrary to popular belief, these were not the fully automatic Ruger AC556 rifles, but the Semi auto only Ruger Mini 14 with folding stocks. Close examination of the show reveals that the actors are pulling the triggers quickly and only a few spent brass casing as flying out, despite the sound effects of full auto fire. Also the cuts in editing, showing bullet squibs and 'dust hits' against the ground and buildings, created the illusion of full auto firing Ruger rifles. Since Americans had not yet been exposed to 'assault weapon bans' being that this was the mid 1980s, the title 1 classified Ruger rifles were easy to transport across state and local lines with no paperwork hassles. The rifles were actually purchased for the show and were kept on permanent storage in the show's props containers during the show's run.

Armalite AR-18

The main villain in "The Only Church In Town" is armed with an Armalite AR-18. It can also be seen in "Recipe For Heavy Bread". This weapon, along with the older Armalite AR-10, were often used as stand-ins for the more expensive M16 in television shows and movies.

AKM

Daewoo K2

The Daewoo K2 is used in numerous episodes, notably by Murdock (Dwight Schultz) in Season 4's "Wheel of Fortune".

FN FAL

Seen in the Season 4 opener "Judgement Day Part 2" used by the Italian boarding crew sent to save the passengers of the hijacked cruise ship. In reality no part of the Italian Armed Forces ever used the FN FAL. It could be that the armorer had trouble acquiring the civilian version of the Beretta BM59 at the time of filming. Note that the model used on the show features a rear flip-up sight.

FN FAL - 7.62x51mm NATO

Heckler & Koch HK91A2

The Heckler & Koch HK91A2 is used mostly by bad guys during later seasons of The A-team. One notable instance is when Hannibal uses a scoped Heckler & Koch HK91A2 during "The Grey Team", Season 5.

M16/SP1

The M16/SP1 is probably the most high-profile firearm in the first 4 seasons, being used by bad guys and members of the A-Team on dozens of occasions. Most of the M16 SP1s used on the show have been fitted with M16A1 flash hiders, in order to stand in for the newer rifle (though some genuine M16A1s also appeared on the show).

M60

The M60 was the regular squad support weapon in the series, always used by Hannibal Smith (George Peppard) and rarely by B.A. Baracus (Mr. T) even though he would have been the obvious choice but was more often relegated to using a nickel plated Star Model BM with ivory grips. The M60D can be seen as dorsal weapons on the UH-1, seen in stock footage used in the Season 5 and 1 Intros.

M60 Rubber props

In the episode "Cowboy George" the viewer is treated to two M60 rubber props. While the use of rubber props themselves is not an unusual occurrence in The A-Team, the M60 appears far less often than any other firearms on the show.

The fact that this is a rubber prop is most evident when checking for the magazine. There is none. The body is also visibly wiggling around when the prop hits the ground.
Another M60 rubber prop bites the dust towards the end of the episode.

Unknown Gas Launcher Gun

In Season 2, Episode 17 "Pure-Dee Poison" Face (Dirk Benedict) holds a gas gun similar but not identical to the Federal Gas Riot gun series. The body is more slender and it has a more conventional 'rifle/shotgun style' buttstock and apparently different adjustable sights on the top of the receiver. Though it could just be a Federal Gas Gun that was modified after the fact. Another launcher is used by Hannibal in Season 5's "Without Reservations".

"Now, which wall would you like me to remove?". Templeton Peck (Dirk Benedict) persuades a barkeeper to help the A-Team in Season 2's "Pure-Dee Poison".
