Rifles

M1 Carbine

Several of the US Marines who meet the astronauts on the beach are armed with the M1 Carbine.

The Modern Manufactured version of the M1 Carbine, with standard stock, from Auto-Ordnance (affiliated with Kahr Arms and Thomson Arms). Chambered in .30 Carbine

Fake M14 Rifles

Several of the US Marines who meet the astronauts on the beach are also armed faux M14 rifles, which were built up from stock M1 Garand rifles, with an M14 style flash hider added, a fake box magazine and the addition of a faux M14 top handguard on top of the Garand wooden handguard. As a trivia note: the Marines are all dressed anachronistically. They wear the Pacific theater helmet cover from WWII (worn in many cases up to the 1960s), Khaki M23 ten pocket ammo belts (for a Garand) OG-107 utilities without the eagle globe & anchor on the left pocket.
