Clear and Present Danger (1994)

Clear and Present Danger is the 1994 feature film adaptation of the Tom Clancy bestseller of the same name and is a direct sequel to 1992's Patriot Games. Harrison Ford returns as CIA analyst Jack Ryan and the film was helmed by Patriot Games director Phillip Noyce. The film's plot involves the President of the United States covertly declaring war on the Colombian Drug Cartel Lindo in order to avenge the assassination of a close friend. When Admiral James Greer (James Earl Jones) is diagnosed with cancer, Jack assumes the position of Acting Deputy Director Intelligence of the CIA. There, he is misled to believe that there will be a "no-troops" enforcement for aiding Colombia. Instead, Robert Ritter, the CIA Deputy Director of Operations, employs former CIA operative John Clark (Willem Dafoe) to lead a Special Ops team to take out Cartel targets in Colombia. When the team is betrayed and Ryan discovers the lies, he heads to Colombia to rescue the surviving members. The Jack Ryan character would also appear in the films Patriot Games, The Hunt for Red October, The Sum of All Fears and Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit.

The following weapons were used in the film Clear and Present Danger:



SIG-Sauer P226

Several members of the diplomatic security convoy as well as FBI Special Agent Dan Murray (Tim Grimm) in Colombia can be seen using SIG-Sauer P226 pistols in the scene where the convoy is ambushed.

Rifles & Carbines

M24 Sniper Rifle

The M24 sniper rifle is carried by Domingo Chavez (Raymond Cruz). It is shown fitted with a silencer & camo paint scheme and makes its first appearance in the shooting range scene, and then can be spotted in a few of the scenes involving the Reciprocity team on its mission. Finally, it is used in the scenes following the ambush of the reciprocity team. Another member of the Reciprocity team uses this rifle, as Chavez is on a mission.

Colt AR-15 Sporter-1 Carbine

Most of the Reciprocity-team can be seen carrying Colt AR-15 Sporter-1 carbines.

The weapons appear to be fitted with XM-177 style flash hiders, most likely a sleeve over the 16" Sporter barrel.
