WARNING! THIS PAGE CONTAINS SPOILERS!
Michael (Paul Bettany) finds a weapons cache filled with assault rifles including several M16A2 rifles. Most of the weapons in the racks, however, are the inexpensive spring-powered M16A2 toy rifles, as indicated by the screw holes in the receiver and the M4-style step down in the full length A2 heavy barrel.
Michael can also be seen on some occasions using an M16A2 with an M203 grenade launcher, although he more frequently uses an M16A4 in the same configuration.

For most of the movie, Michael's weapon-of-choice is an M16A4 assault rifle fitted with an M203 grenade launcher. Due to a continuity error, his M16A4 occasionally becomes an M16A2 in some scenes.

Heckler & Koch G36K airsoft replica
Heckler & Koch G36K assault rifles are also grabbed by Michael from the cache, appearing to be fitted with G36C-style rail tops. They are never used or seen again for the rest of the film. These are clearly the airsoft replica versions of the G36 as you can see the ejection ports are cast in plastic and the rounds in the mag are stacked side by side as opposed to staggered.
