The following weapons can be seen in the movie Four Lions:

Rifles

Fake AK-47

One of the Jihadists, Waj (Kayvan Novak), uses a fake AK-47 in one of the videos. As a miniature dummy, it is very unconvincing.

Waj (Kayvan Novak) untimidatingly shows off his fake AK-47 as he warns the "unbelieving kaffir bastards".
Waj shrugs off the size with a comment on his "big hands".
He slides towards the camera...
In an attempt to, in his own words, "bigger" the toy.

AKMS

In a Jihadi training camp in Pakistan, Waj (Kayvan Novak) acquires an authentic AKMS rifle and fires it in one of the videos, naturally irritating camp leader Khalid (Willliam El-Gardi) due to the presence of American drones in the area.

Waj holds the AKMS as he sets up his cell phone.
"Big enough for you now, Barry?".
Waj lets loose with the AKMS.
"A Paki Rambo"!.
Khalid (Willliam El-Gardi) grabs the AKMS from Waj...
...And unloads the magazine.

Heckler & Koch G3SG/1

A British Police Sniper (Kevin Eldon) uses a Heckler & Koch G3SG/1 to shoot a "Wookie" mistaken for one of the terrorists. This leads to a hilarious exchange about whether a wookie or a honey monster is a bear.

Centering on the target...
...And firing. Note the spent cartridge ejecting past his headgear.
"That must be the right target, I just shot it!".

Parker Hale M85

A second Sniper (Darren Boyd) operates a Parker Hale M85 rifle.

Submachine Guns

Heckler & Koch MP5A3

British Counter-Terrorist forces are armed with Heckler & Koch MP5A3 submachine guns mounted with Surefire tactical lights and ACOG sights.

Burst in, guns blazing. In true fashion for the police in this movie, they hit the hostage, not the hostage taker.
"You alright, mate?". Not in a moment, he's not.

Sidearms

Glock 17

One of the British officers briefly carries a Glock 17.

Launchers

M136 AT4

A stash of M136 AT4 missile launchers are seen at the training camp. Omar (Riz Ahmed) tries to take down an enemy drone with one. However, he holds it the wrong way around and it backfires (literally), and ends up killing Osama Bin Laden.

Omar grabs the AT4...
...And fiddles around with it.
Note it's the wrong way around. The writing saying "front end" should be a good hint.
Too confident for his own good, Omar nods at Waj.
Note the missile going in the wrong direction.
