Sniper: Reloaded (2011)

Sniper: Reloaded is a 2011 action thriller that is the fourth installment in the Sniper film series. Billy Zane returns from the original film as Richard Miller, the former NSC sniper who was the protege of Master Gunnery Sgt. Thomas Beckett (Tom Berenger). In Reloaded, Miller travels to the Congo to track down a rebel sniper being hunted down by Brandon Beckett (Chad Michael Collins), a young Marine sergeant who happens to be the estranged son of Beckett. The film was produced in South Africa, so many of the weapons seen in the film are of that country's origin. Collins would return as Brandon in Sniper: Legacy, the fifth installment in the series, which also featured the return of Tom Berenger to the series.

The following weapons were used in the film Sniper: Reloaded:



Sniper Rifles

Lee-Enfield Rifle (sporterized)

Sgt. Brandon Beckett (Chad Michael Collins) uses what appears to be a sporterized version of the SMLE rifle during his mission to take down the rebel sniper.

Beckett holds the SMLE. Note the cocking piece and iron sight under the scope. These features likely make this a No. 1 Mk. 3 rifle, the original SMLE model, built from before World War I to the present day.

Mauser 98 Sporter

A Mauser 98 Sporter is used by Martin Chandler (Patrick Lyster) and then Sgt. Beckett. A different Mauser is used by Richard Miller (Billy Zane) as well as a few of the US Marine snipers whom Miller trains at Camp Lejeune.

Truvelo CMS

A US Marine sniper whom Miller trains at Camp Lejeune is seen using what appears to be Truvelo CMS 12.7x99mm rifle. Miller is later seen using the rifle, which appears to be missing the plastic panels on the sides of the receiver, exposing the chassis of the rifle.

M24 Sniper Weapon System

The M24 Sniper Weapon System is supposed to be the weapon used by an enemy sniper who attacked Beckett and his fellow Marines. Beckett mentions that one of the rounds found has the twist of the M24.

AR-15 Carbines fitted with scopes and R.I.S. handguards in order to resemble the M4A1 are used by Sgt. Brandon Beckett (Chad Michael Collins) as well as the other Marines in the Congo.

Beckett and another Marine are armed with the carbines. These are not M4's, as they do not have the removable carry handle.

A&K SPR Mod 0 Carbine

Another Marine is seen carrying an A&K SPR Mod 0 Carbine airsoft gun. This gun is a fictitious carbine variant of the Mk 12 Mod 0 SPR.

Note the 4 vent holes in the handguard, indicating a carbine-length barrel, unlike the Mark 12 SPR.


Some rebels are seen armed with M16A1 rifles.

M16A1 w/A2 Handguards

Marines who train with Miller as well as other Marines in the Congo are seen with the M16A1 with A2 handguards.

Vektor R5 (Modified to Resemble AK-47)

Rebel soldiers use what appear to be at first glance AK-47 rifles. However, based on their 5.56 magazines and angled Valmet-style receiver design, these rifles are actually Vektor R5 rifles modified to resemble Kalashnikovs. Similar weapons have appeared in other movies made in South Africa, such as District 9 or Chris Ryan's Strike Back.

Other unmodified Vektor R5 rifles are used by UN Forces.

Vektor R6

What is referred to as an "AKS" being displayed to UN Forces appears to be a Vektor R6 rifle modified to resemble an AKS-74.

Vektor Z88

Due to the film's production in South Africa, the Vektor Z88, the South African copy of the Beretta 92FS, appears to be the handgun used throughout the film in lieu of the Beretta.

LAR Grizzly Mk I.45 Winchester Magnum

The LAR Grizzly Mk I is given to Sgt. Beckett by Miller. Miller says that it was a gift from Beckett's father as this was supposed to be the pistol seen at the end of Sniper (1993).
