Rifles

Gilboa Series Rifles

Several of the rifles in the film that resemble the M4A1 appear to be hybrid rifles built in part from the "Gilboa" series of rifles manufactured by Silver Shadow, an authorized Israeli weapon manufacturer. These rifles are likely the same ones that were seen in the 2014 film Jarhead 2: Field of Fire (which was also helmed by Sniper: Legacy's director Don Michael Paul).

Gilboa "Commando"

The "Commando" model is the weapon of choice for most of the allied soldiers.

Gilboa "Shorty"

Some of the soldiers carry a rifle with an even shorter barrel which appear to be to built up from Gilboa's "Shorty" model.

Handguns

EKOL Jackal Dual

What appears to be a Beretta 92FS is seen wielded by Brandon Beckett and Daniel Simpson (Doug Allen). However, upon closer inspection it appears that this pistol is actually an EKOL Jackal Dual blank fire replica, identified by the fire selector located between the takedown latch and slide stop.

SIG-Sauer P229R

After losing her Glock pistol, Sanaa pulls out what appears to be a SIG-Sauer P229R.

Zoraki 917 (Glock clone)

What appears to be a Glock pistol is carried by Sanaa (Mercedes Masöhn). Upon closer inspection, the pistol actually appears to be a Zoraki 917, a blank-firing only Glock clone that is only available in Europe, where the film was produced.

Zoraki 925

An enemy commander uses a pistol that appears to be the blank firing Zoraki 925. This weapon is widespread in Eastern European countries because of the gun ownership laws.

Other

M203 (Airsoft)

The launcher mounted underneath several of the soldiers' rifles appears to be an airsoft replica of the M203. It can be identified as an airsoft replica by the rail mounting system. 12" barrel versions are fitted to M16s, while 9" barrel versions are used on the carbines. These appear to the same ones used in the 2014 film Jarhead 2: Field of Fire.
