The following weapons were used in the television series Over There:

Rifles/Carbines

M4A1 Carbine

One of the most commonly seen weapons in the show, the M4A1 carbine is used by practically all the American characters in the show seen in Iraq, with a few exceptions. All versions have the RIS foregrip, with the exception of Pvt. Frank 'Dim' Dumphy (Luke MacFarlane) who has an M203 grenade launcher and Surefire Universal weaponlight mounted on his as mentioned below. The character Pvt. Avery 'Angel' King (Keith Robinson) has an ACOG scope mounted atop the carry handle of his M4 due to his role as the fireteam's Designated Marksman. Most of the M4A1's are also fitted with AN/PEQ-2 IR designators. One can also be seen in the hands of a distraught Iraqi civilian whose son has been mortally wounded by an insurgent bomber, and another M4A1 can be seen being used by Colonel Ryan (Michael Cudlitz), a Special Forces officer who has a custom camouflage paint scheme, suppressor, and Surefire Universal weaponlight on his M4A1.

The standard-issue M16A2 with no frills is being used by PV2 Brenda 'Mrs. B' Mitchell (Nicki Aycox) and PFC Esmaralda 'Doublewide' Del Rio (Lizette Carrión), due to their roles as members of a logistics unit instead of a front-line combat unit like their comrades.

AK-47

As befitting the stereotypical 'bad guy' weapon, the AK-47 is seen in the hands of Iraqi insurgents that the characters end up facing in practically every episode, though are also seen in the hands of Iraqi soldiers working with the team on rare occasions.

Machine Guns

M249 SAW

The M249 SAW is carried by the fireteam's Automatic Rifleman, Pvt. Maurice 'Smoke' Williams (Kirk "Sticky Fingaz" Jones) and several other soldiers. Smoke originally carries the standard M249, but somehow switches to the compact 'paratrooper' version featuring a telescoping stock and shorter barrel in "Roadblock Duty" (S1E02). Other soldiers can also be seen using standard M249's on occasion, including a few mounted on vehicles.
