It's actually an MP5K, note the SEF trigger group (which can be added to SP89s, but is a pain), the paddle magazine release, the push-pin lower receiver. - Gunmaster45
Just a note, all of the SP89s converted to auto fire in Cinema Weaponry's inventory all had the SEF lowers installed after the fact by Mike Papac, so now they can't be distinguished from the early SP89 conversions. I have the only un-upgraded SP89 conversion left :) Back to the movie, note that the paddle release is missing, heavily implying that it is a 99% converted SP89.

I have to disagree with you, I can see paddle magazine releases in the images, and you can see the guns have push pin lower receivers. Maybe if they went the extra mile and added the fake paddle magazine releases they could be SP89s, but I think they are actual MP5Ks. - Gunmaster45

I'd have to agree with Gunmaster45. If you look in the cap below, the gun Ramada is holding looks like it has a paddle mag release. --Funkychinaman (talk) 23:30, 10 October 2012 (EDT)



The Hot Shots! Oerlikon mounts a saddle drum magazine, seemingly made by simply attaching two regular drums together. The drum to the right is backwards as a result.


What do you think the hump on the launcher is covering? Is this a different launcher? --Ben41 (talk)

An Iraqi sailor prepares to fire the RPG.
The RPG is fired.
I don't think it's a different launcher - It certainly appears to be one of those RPG-7 mockups. As for the covering, it seems to cover the spot where the actual rear sight apparatus would be. Why I'm not too sure, but I do have a theory - I understand the rear sights were also mocked up as part of the launcher mockup, and might have been damaged. It may have been undesirable/unnecessary to repair it so perhaps the hump was a production/set expedient to cover it up. StanTheMan (talk) 13:00, 7 January 2015 (EST)

It's very odd that this mockup has a very crude pistol grip (it looks just like a piece of wood and very rudimentary trigger guard). --Ben41 (talk) 20:46, 7 January 2015 (EST)

The guy's mustache looks very crude and rudimentary as well. It looks like it's coming off in the second cap. --Funkychinaman (talk) 17:05, 8 January 2015 (EST)
I forget what the effect is for firing that launcher, but I imagine the hump is probably to cover up whatever mechanism is used to get the rocket out of the launcher, might also be whatever electronics are used to trigger it if they're using a pyro or a model rocket engine.

Rabinowitz' M16

In the shot of him with the M16 SP1, it has an actual M203 judging by the trigger guard. The M16A1 in the following screencaps, however, have the fake M203 from Predator and Scarface. Spartan198 (talk) 08:59, 16 September 2018 (EDT)
