Handguns

Beretta 92SB (Nickel)

Lt. Col. Matthew Markinson (J.T. Walsh) is seen pulling a Beretta 92SB with a nickel finish. Lt. J.G. Daniel Kaffee (Tom Cruise) erroneously refers to this handgun as a "nickel-plated .45 caliber pistol" in court.

Rifles

M16A2

At the beginning of the film, a Marine has an M16A2 slung while guarding the fenceline near the Guantanamo base. Marines during training also carry their M16A2 rifles without magazines loaded.

M1903 Springfield

The Marine Silent Drill Platoon seen in Washington, D.C. during the opening credits use M1903 Springfield rifles with bayonets. Because the production did not receive support from the USMC, the platoon seen in the film is actually a drill team from Texas A&M (as the actual USMC Silent Drill Platoon uses the M1 Garand). Footage from this sequence was seen in an episode of JAG.
