Smith & Wesson Model 10 HB (heavy barrel) revolver (Post 1950s Model) - .38 Special. Later incarnations of the Model 10 had a non-tapered heavy barrel, which leads it to be commonly mistaken for a .357 revolver.

M16A1 with 20 round magazine - 5.56x45mm. What distinguishes it from the original M16 was the addition of a raised rib around the magazine release button, changing of the forward Receiver pins, and the addition of the forward assist button on the upper receiver.

Other Weapon

Super Bazooka Rocket Launcher

The drug cartel soldiers fire a rocket launcher from the Bell Iroquois helicopter. The launcher looks similar to M20A1/A1B1 "Super Bazooka" but differs in several details (note the different shape of grips at the business end). In any case firing Bazooka from inside the helicopter is a very dangerous for the crew.
