Behind Enemy Lines II: Axis of Evil (2006)
The following weapons were used in the film Behind Enemy Lines II: Axis of Evil (2006)
Norinco Type 56-1 (fake)
The Paratrooper version of the AK-47 can be seen in the hands of many SEAL team members and North Korean soldiers, possably to allow them to use captured ammunition. Take a look at the AKS-47 and you will notice that two of the SEAL's AK's appear to be Chinese AK'S ( noted by the hooded sight in some scenes, but they are actually mocked up from Bulgarian AR-Fs.The AKs are strangely customized with ultra short barrels.
Bulgairan AR-F, 7.62x39mm
Type 56-1 assault rifle (under-folding stock variant) - 7.62x39mm
Two SEALs fire mocked up Type-56
with ultra short barrels.
CWO Lawrence Meideros (Mykel Shannon Jenkins
) and 2nd Class Petty Officer Corey Schulteiss (Michael Simpson) both firing oddly customized Bulgarian AK-47
milled rifles with ultra short barrels as Lt. James (Nicholas Gonzalez
) fires his PPS-43
mocked up to look like an MP5
Seen in the hands of Lieutenant Robert James (Nicholas Gonzalez), Master Chief Petty Officer Neil 'Spaz' Callaghan (Matt Bushell) and possibly South Korean Spec-Ops soldiers are Bulgarian Arsenal AR-M1F rifles that have AKS-74U style muzzle brakes in place of their regular flash hiders. They have milled receivers, underfolding stocks, and AK-74 type gas blocks.

) fires his Arsenal AR-1F rifle, built up from a milled receiver AKS-47
underfolder rifle - 7.62x39mm
PPS-43 (fake MP5)
Since this film was shot in Bulgaria, we see many Eastern European weapons. The fake Heckler & Koch MP5 used by Lt. Robert James (Nicholas Gonzalez) and in the hands of a few SEAL members near the end of the film is actually a mocked up PPS-43, chambered in 7.62x25mm Tokarev, which explains the magazine that is slightly too fat to be 9x19mm.

Heckler & Koch MP5A3 with "tropical" (wide) forearm - 9x19mm with stock extended
Lt. James (Nicholas Gonzalez
) and his PPS-43 mocked up to look like an MP5 - 7.62x25mm. The barrel shroud of the PPS-43
was removed but the barrel was not shortened, thus the elongated barrel. The PPS-43
was built up from MP5
parts to impersonate the 9mm Submachine gun.
Lt. James (Nicholas Gonzalez
) fires his PPS-43 mocked up to look like an MP5 - 7.62x25mm near CWO Lawrence Meideros (Mykel Shannon Jenkins
) and 2nd Class Petty Officer Corey Schulteiss (Michael Simpson
). both firing oddly customized Bulgarian AK47
milled rifles with ultra short barrels.

A North Korean 'Home Guard' officer fires an M1911A1, killing a local peasant woman, during a melee with the Navy SEALs. Why he would be carrying an M1911 is a mystery since he would most likely be carrying the North Korean equivalent of the Tokarev TT-33.
World War 2 issued Colt M1911A1 Pistol - .45 ACP

at a Navy SEAL - .45 ACP
A closer shot of the North Korean Home Guard Officer and his M1911
- .45 ACP. His uniform is a light grey version of the Soviet Commissar uniform of WW2 and is anachronistic. The costuming is utilizing old Bulgarian surplus uniforms (which makes sense since the film was shot in Bulgaria).
Lt. James uses a suppressed Beretta 92 during the final mission.
Beretta 92F - 9x19mm. The cosmetic differences are very slight and hard to see. Most of the changes are the inner workings of the gun.
Beretta 92FS Inox
This can be seen being used by North Korean Commander Hwang (Joseph Steven Yang).
Beretta 92FS INOX - 9x19mm.
A two-tone Beretta 84F is seen in the hands of Lieutenant Robert James (Nicholas Gonzalez).
Beretta 84FS with Two Toned finish .380 ACP
North Korean soldiers use RPG-22s.
An unknown sniper rifle is used by two South Korean Special Forces Soldiers. It may be a SVD Dragunov fitted with a different stock. The sniper rifles were possibly Bulgarian ARs mocked up to look like Dragunov or Zastava M76 rifles
Commercial "Tiger Carbine" (aka "Dragunov Tiger") version sold in the US, with synthetic furnishings used on domestic SVD-M modernized variant - 7.62x54mm R
Zastava M7O scoped-7.62x39mm
Armscor M16 22(?)
An M16 type rifle can be seen used by the South Korean Spec-Ops soldiers. They appear to be Armscor M16 22 rifles, but they could also be the mocked up M16A2s from Bulgarian ARs.
Armscor (Squires Bingham of the Philippines) M16 22 rifle - .22 LR. Sometimes sold as the M-1600
