Fake Uzi Submachine gun aka "The MAC-Uzi" (modified MAC-10)

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).

Spitfire Carbine

Members of the A-Team and various bad guys use special submachine guns in the pilot episode "Mexican Slayride" (S1E01).

Rifles/Carbines

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).

The Valmet M71P is seen in the hands of Rashaad's men in "One More Time" (S1E11). As what was common for US productions in the 1970's and 1980's, the Valmet rifles were seen used as a substitute for the AK-47.

In "A Nice Place to Visit" (S1E14), a Remington 700 BDL appears to be the rifle seen in the home of Ray Brenner. The rifle is seen in the hands of Trish Brenner (Joanna Kerns), Amy Allen (Melinda Culea) and Face (Dirk Benedict) in the episode.

It's also seen in the episode mounted in the weapon rack in the sheriff's office along with multiple other shotguns.

M60

The M60 was the regular squad support weapon in the series, almost 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 M60 is prominently used by Hannibal in Season 1's finale "A Nice Place to Visit" (S1E14), as he retrieves from the trunk of a fallen former Green Beret.
