Sniper: Reloaded (2011)

Sniper: Reloaded is a 2011 American action thriller that is the fourth installment in the Sniper film series. Billy Zane returns as Richard Miller, the former NSC sniper who was the protégé of Master Gunnery Sergeant Thomas Beckett (Tom Berenger) in the original film . In Sniper: Reloaded, Miller travels to the Congo to track down a rebel sniper being hunted down by Brandon (Chad Michael Collins), a young Marine sergeant who happens to be Beckett's son. The film was produced in South Africa, so many of weapons seen in the film are of that country's origin. Collins would return as Brandon in three more sequels: 2014's Sniper: Legacy, the fifth installment in the series (which also featured the return of Tom Berenger), 2016's Sniper: Ghost Shooter and 2017's Sniper: Ultimate Kill.

Sniper Rifles

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 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 sniper rifle. Later Miller also uses this 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 Vincent "The Italian" Masiello (Justin Strydom) who attacked Beckett and his fellow Marines. Beckett mentions that one of the rounds found has the twist of the M24.

Rifles

CAR-15

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

Vektor R5 (modified to resemble AKS-47)

The rebels use what appear to be at first glance AKS-47 rifles. However, based on their 5.56mm magazines and angled Valmet-style receiver design, these rifles are actually Vektor R5 rifles modified to resemble Kalashnikov rifles. Similar weapons have appeared in other films made in South Africa, such as District 9 or Strike Back.

Handguns

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.
