McGee (Leon Isaac Kennedy) fires J&R Engineering M68 Carbine with fake drum magazine at the several scenes. Numerous characters also can be seen armed with these mocked-up submachine guns. Some also feature the fake cooling barrel covers. It is difficult to explain these changes, but apparently they must be depict guns such as the Thompson M1928A1 and PPSh-41 respectively (what is strange, because both are already in the film. But perhaps these scenes were filmed in other places, where this guns were not available).
