Proteus is a 1995 sci-fi horror film directed by Bob Keen (To Catch a Yeti) and starring Craig Fairbrass. Although given a theatrical release in the UK, it went direct-to-video in the US.
The following weapons were used in the film Proteus:
Alex (Craig Fairbrass) uses an modified AKS-47 for much of the film. His AKS-47 appears to be a hybrid between an AKS-47 and an L85 rifle, with an L85 forend and SUSAT sight. One of the Brinkstone guards is also armed with the same rifle, which Alex later takes away from him.

L85A1 with SUSAT scope - 5.56x45mm NATO

A side-view of the L85 forend.
Note how the mismatched forend prevents the folding stock from folding all the way. Despite this, Alex never thinks to just extend the stock and fire the rifle from his shoulder. Note the SUSAT sight, which appears to be mounted on top of the receiver, rather than off to the side.
Alex tries to shoot his way through a door.
Alex confronts "Dr. Soames" (Jordan Page.) Note the flashlight taped to the L85 forend, which locks the shoulder stock in place.
The cuts in the milled receiver are clear in this shot.

Heckler & Koch MP5A3
Heckler & Koch MP5A3s are often seen in the film. An MP5A3 with the slim forearm is seen in the hands of security guard Buckley (Ricco Ross), and MP5A3s with Surefire forearms, weapon lights and flash hiders are seen in the hands of Rachel (Jennifer Calvert), Paul (Robert Firth), Linda (Toni Barry), Mark (William Marsh), and Alex. Brinkstone's guards are also seen armed with them.
