M1921 Thompson

Michael Jackson uses a M1921 Thompson in the Nightclub to fire at Mr Big (Joe Pesci)'s troops.

Heckler & Koch HK94

Mr Big's troops carry HK94s with custom shells to make the weapons appear more futuristic. The plastic shells, which include an ammo counter and weaponlight, were built by a special effects fabrication company with the help of Stembridge Gun Rentals (who provided the HK94s) to ensure that the guns would still properly function. While the rifle appears to be fitted with an M16-style magazine (presumably to hide the HK94's actual magazine), it also has the distinctive HK trigger guard.

Unknown revolver

Two unknown revolvers are seen, both in during the "Smooth Criminal" sequence. One is pulled by a thug when Michael enters the speakeasy, and the other is used by Michael Jackson to shoot a thug.
