Deal of the Century
Deal of the Century is a 1983 satire starring Chevy Chase as an arms dealer who finds himself employed by an American defense contractor to convince a South American dictator to purchase an unmanned flying arms platform with questionable reliability. The film was directed by William Friedkin (The French Connection) and the cast includes Sigourney Weaver and Gregory Hines.
The following weapons were used in the film Deal of the Century:
Heckler & Koch HK91
The Heckler & Koch HK91 is a rifle that arms dealer Eddie Muntz (Chevy Chase) tries to sell to some South American rebels. The particular rifle he tries to sell has an attached scope and even a bottle opener!
The rebels that come to deal with Eddie at the lake bed are armed with M16A1 rifles. Soldiers on the government helicopters that engage the rebels also use the M16A1.
One of the rebels supplied by Eddie is armed with a full-size Uzi.
A military officer pulls a M1911A1 when Muntz appears to threaten Gen. Cordosa (William Marquez). It's also carried by a rebel driver.
Colt Detective Special
Smith & Wesson Model 60
Beretta 84FS Nickel
An M72 LAW fitted with a night vision scope is another weapon Eddie tries to sell to the rebels.
Eddie asks his friend Ray Kasternak (Gregory Hines) to go visit a gundealer to buy some M2A1 Flamethrowers. When an irate driver vandalizes his car, Ray decides to use the flamethrower on the irate driver's car. This flamethrower appears to be the same one used in the 1984 film Exterminator 2.
