S.W.A.T.: Firefight (2011)

S.W.A.T.: Firefight is a 2011 DTV action film starring Gabriel Macht as Paul Cutler, an LAPD SWAT officer is assigned to train officers of the Detroit Police Department in the latest tactics. The story for this film was co-written by three former LAPD SWAT officers. While not directly related except for the use of the television theme song, Firefight was marketed as a sequel to the 2003 film S.W.A.T. and then was followed in 2017 by the DTV film S.W.A.T.: Under Siege.

Assault Rifles

Many S.W.A.T. Officers use variants of the Colt Law Enforcement Carbine throughout the movie with a variety of sights and gear attached to them. The Detroit SWAT team was later seen using training models that shoot paintballs.

Barrett M107

Walter Hatch (Robert Patrick) uses a Barrett M107 at a shooting range to scare Cutler. For some reason he racks the charging handle for every shot. It might or might not be for dramatic effort or the blanks they used didn't cycle semi-automatically. It's also possible that they didn't have any actual blanks and used special effects for the muzzle blast.
