Clear and Present Danger
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 following weapons were used in the film Clear and Present Danger:
WARNING! THIS PAGE CONTAINS SPOILERS!
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. A P226 appears to also be the sidearm carried by Felix Cortez (Joaquim de Almeida).

Heckler & Koch USP
A Heckler & Koch USP is carried by one of Ernesto Escobedo's (Miguel Sandoval) henchmen as he disarms Cortez of his SIG P226 at the Cafe Lindo factory. Clear and Present Danger may be the first movie ever to feature this pistol (since the USP debuted in 1993, the same year that this movie was filmed and was released over a month prior to the 1994 film that also featured the pistol: Terminal Velocity).

Assault Rifles / Carbines
Olympic Arms OA-93
The Olympic Arms OA-93 is the peculiar looking "shortened" M16-like weapon carried by John Clark (Willem Dafoe) in the rescue mission.
Olympic Arms OA-93 - 5.56x45mm

Colt AR-15 Sporter-1 Carbine (Mocked up as XM177-type Carbine)
Most of the Reciprocity-team including Captain Ramirez (Benjamin Bratt) can be seen carrying Colt AR-15 SP1 Carbines. The weapons can be identified as Sporter-1 carbines by their lack of forward assist and brass deflector on the upper receiver, and by their slab sided lower receiver with screw type pivot pin. The weapons appear to be fitted with XM177-style flash hiders, most likely a sleeve over the 16" Sporter barrel.

Captain Ramirez (Benjamin Bratt
) fires his SP1 carbine. The 'slab-side' lower receiver (devoid of magazine fencing) and 'slickside' upper receiver (devoid of forward assist and brass deflector) is clearly visible in this image. Note also that his weapon appears to have a tangent sight for an M203 grenade launcher mounted to the carry handle, but no launcher is mounted to his carbine.
Captain Ramirez calls for his demo team while holding the carbine.
M16A1 (with A2 handguards)
The US soldiers participating in the search-and-evade exercise involving Chavez however are equipped with what appear to be M16A2 Rifles. Upon closer inspection, these rifles appear to be M16A1s fitted with A2 handguards to simulate the M16A2. At least two members of the Reciprocity-team in Colombia also carry M16A1s also with A2-style handguards.

Norinco Type 56
Numerous variants of the Norinco Type 56 can be seen in the hands of Escobedo's men throughout the movie. Fixed stock variants and Type 56-1 under-folding stock variants are seen. They are most visible in the scene in which the reciprocity team attacks and destroys the underground drug lab/factory.
Norinco Type 56 (Imported into the U.S. as the Norinco AKS-47 or AKS-47 Sporter) - 7.62x39mm. Rather than having the underfolder pig sticker Bayonet assembly, this has the standard Bayonet lug underneath the gas block as the AKM and later variants.

Custom AKMS Assault Pistol with folded stock - 7.62x39mm. The Custom rifle has parts from the Norinco Type 56 and the AKMS. In reality, these rifles don't interchange parts, but it was possible since the gun is massively customized and practically rebuilt from scratch.

Muzzelite MZ14 Bullpup
When the Reciprocity team prepares to take out a cartel drug plane, one of the cartel soldiers appears to be armed with a Ruger AC556 rifle fitted in a Muzzelite MZ14 Bullpup configuration. Another MZ14 Bullpup is very briefly seen wielded by one of the mercenaries attacking the Reciprocity team.

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.

Heckler & Koch HK94A3
The Heckler & Koch HK94A3 (converted to pass for a Heckler & Koch MP5A3) is carried by Chavez. It is prominently seen in two scenes: firstly when Chavez plants a bomb on the drug-runner's plane, and secondly when he scouts the insides of a drug factory. Chavez's HK94 is also equipped with a suppressor. Several of Escobedo's men can also be seen with HK94s.
