Diplomatic Siege (also known as Enemy of My Enemy) is a 1999 American production filmed in Romania. In the United States embassy in Bucharest, Romania, Steve Mitchell (Peter Weller) and Erica Long (Daryl Hannah) are pressed to disarm a nuclear bomb left over from the Cold War that's in countdown mode. Serbian terrorists take over the embassy and threaten to kill one hostage every hour if the US does not release their colonel being held for trial at the Hague for war crimes. Meanwhile at the Hague a disgruntled Croatian guard kills the Serbian colonel for massacring his family, so US has to find an impersonator to fool the terrorists in negotiations. Gen. Buck Swain (Tom Berenger) arrives in Bucharest with a US anti-terrorist squad to retake the embassy. And there's a mole on the embassy staff.

The following weapons were used in the film Diplomatic Siege:

Agent Steve Mitchell (Peter Weller) holds his M1911A1.
Erica (Daryl Hannah) disarms Steve and forces him to accomplish the mission.
One of the terrorists fires his M1911A1 pistol.
A bodyguard is armed with what appears to be a SIG-Sauer P228 pistol, and not, as has been written previously, a Zastava CZ99. The longer slide and the protruding barrel makes this pistol most likely an airsoft replica.

A girl fires at Gen Swain (Tom Berenger) with an unidentified revolver.
Members of the US Special Forces in the film are seen using MP40 submachine guns. Since the film was produced in Bosnia-Herzegovina, the SMG was most likely the closest to a western-looking firearm that the armorers could find that actually could be fired (the M16's seen earlier were replicas).

Steve Mitchell (Peter Weller) is also seen firing a Bulgarian Arsenal Shipka submachine gun.
Several characters in movie use early model AIMS (PM md. 63) assault rifles with underfolding stocks and convex forward grips.

M16 Rifle (MGC Replica)
Some of the US Special Forces commanded by General Buck Swain (Tom Berenger) are armed with what appear to be M16 rifles. Closer inspection makes these rifles out to be MGC replicas.
The MGC M16 Assault rifle: a non firing metal replica built by the Model Gun Corp of Japan and one of the most used non firing replicas of the M16 in movies and television. The 'forward assist' on the early models like the one imaged here are bolt inserts to keep the receiver together. Modern MGC M16 replicas have improved by third parties over the years (like adding A1 flash hiders) making it more accurate to the real thing making it harder for 'Connoisseurs' to identify
General Buck Swain (Tom Berenger
) holds the MGC replica. His scope appears to be askew.
Serbian terrorist Dushan (Mihai Baranga) takes aim with what appears to be a scoped Karabiner 98k rifle.
