||Don E. FauntLeRoy
||20th Century Fox
Mercenary for Justice is a 2006 direct-to-DVD action film directed by Don E. FauntLeRoy and starring Steven Seagal as John Seeger, who commands a squad of mercenaries hired by the CIA to carry out a coup d'état on a fictional island in Southern Africa. After his mercenaries are defeated due to the appearance of French regular troops, Seeger finds that his CIA employers are dissatisfied and now have a nearly suicidal mission for him and his men. Some of the battle scenes were filmed partially in Bulgaria (all scenes with T-72 tanks and other armored vehicles) while others were filmed in South Africa, resulting in numerous continuity errors.
The following weapons are seen in the movie Mercenary for Justice:
WARNING! THIS PAGE CONTAINS SPOILERS!
As in many other movies, Steven Seagal's character John Seeger carries a custom M1911A1. In the final scene this pistol is used with a sound suppressor. Seagal himself is a great fan of 1911s and has a collection of customized versions of this gun. One of Chapel's henchmen is also armed with an M1911A1.

PPSh-41 submachine gun with a 71 round drum magazine is seen in hands of a mercenary in the opening scene. Many PPSh-41 were captured by South African army during the border conflicts with Angola and Mozambique, so it's not surprising to see PPSh in South African filmed movie.

South African Musler 12 Gauge Tactical Action
Cape Town police officers can be seen carrying what appears to be 12 gauge pump shotgun. As this film was produced in South Africa, the shotgun is likely a 12 Gauge Musler, a South African-manufactured shotgun similar in appearance to the Mossberg 500. The same weapon can be seen in other movies, filmed in South Africa, such as Doomsday.
A Cape Town police officer runs with a shotgun.

Vektor R5 assault rifles are the most widely used guns in this movie. They are seen in hands of mercenaries, French commandos, Cape Town police officers, and Chapel's henchmen. Some of these R5 can be LM5, semi-automatic civilian version of this assault rifle.

) fires R5 assault rifle in the opening scene.

Vector R5 (visually modified to resemble AK-47)
Many R5s are visually modified to resemble the AK-47 assault rifles. They are fitted with the wooden furniture and AK-style compensators but still can be identified by their angled receivers and Galil-style 5.56mm magazines. Most mercenaries are armed with such rifles.
The first version of fake AK has a longer barrel and wooden buttstock and resembles AK-47.

SIG SG 550 (Airsoft Replica)
Several French commandos are armed with assault rifles that resembles the SIG SG 550 but appear to be airsoft replicas. More specifically it appears to be a Spring JP Air Sports Combat 912A, as noted by the shape of the handguard with a bracket for the bipod, and the shape of the magazine. This same replica can be seen in other Bulgarian filmes movies, such as Infestation.

Heckler & Koch G3
Heckler & Koch G3 assault rifles are seen in hands of Greek soldiers during the scene in the house of Ahmet Dasan (Peter Butler) in Athens. These guns can be airsoft ones because this scene was also filmed in South Africa where real G3s weren't used.
Heckler & Koch G3A3 with wide handguard - 7.62x51mm NATO
Colt M4 carbines are seen several times in hands of the guards of the villa of the French ambassador in the opening scene. They immediately switches to Vektor R5 rifles in a continuity error. As a guess they are airsoft guns.

) incapacitates a guard who carries an M4 carbine. Note that his comrade is armed with Vektor R5

Arsenal AR (visually modified to resemble M16)
M16A2 assault rifles, that are seen in the scene of the funeral of "Radio" Jones (Zaa Nkweta), are really visually modified Bulgarian Arsenal ARs. The same convertion can be seen in other Bulgarian-filmed movies, such as Universal Soldier: Regeneration, The Tournament and Day of the Dead.

) carries an M26 grenade and a charge of plastic explosives. Note the barrel of his Vektor CR-21
next to him.
