Arkady Ulyanov (Marcel Iures) uses a Tokarev TT-33 in S04E08. In this shot it appears to have a short slide (much like the BUSS GS-90), however this is an illusion caused by the fact that the pistol's slide is jammed out of battery.

Damien Scott (Sullivan Stapleton) both carry Heckler & Koch MP5K "Reverse Stretch" submachine guns whilst transporting McKenna in S04E05 and during the attack on the embassy in S04E06. The "Reverse Stretch" is not an actual H&K variant, but is an after-market modification that combines an MP5A3/A5 receiver and stock with an MP5K front end. Both of the weapons that appear in the show also have the same straight magazine used in the unknown MP5 variant used during the airport shootout.

Unknown MP5 Variant

An unknown MP5 variant appears during the shootout at the airport in S04E05. It uses a peculiar straight magazine which is shorter than the "waffle" pattern 30 round magazines but longer than the 20 round ones. Based on the fact that the typical MP5A3 carried by a police officer changes to this variant shortly before a firing scene, it can be surmised that the more typical MP5 variants seen in this episode are replica or Airsoft weapons. It is possible that this weapon is a mock up of some sort, or a locally produced copy of the MP5 that uses a different magazine, such as the Iranian MPT-9S, a version made under license in Iran, and one notable for its straight magazine. However, it would seem unlikely that a variant of notable obscurity would have made it into the hands of a theatrical armourer, and then onto set. This weapon is also used by one of Kamali's "cleanskins" in S04E10.

The police officer guarding the customs desk now carries this unidentified variant, despite the fact that he was carrying a typical MP5A3 in the shot before. This is likely because he is about to be shot and his weapon is then picked up by someone else and used in a firing scene.
Sgt. Michael Stonebridge (Philip Winchester) firing an MP5 taken from a fallen officer. Note the ejecting cases indicating that this is a genuine blank firing weapon as opposed to a replica with CG muzzle flashes.

...however in the next scene the stock is absent.
One of the terrorists protecting Novotny carries a Skorpion in S04E09.

PP-19 Bizon

Russian police that arrest Scott and Stonebridge at the start of S04E07 are armed with PP-19 Bizons. It is possible that this is a mock up or replica, as it seems to incorporate features from both the original PP-19 Bizon and the later PP-19 Bizon-2.

Shotguns

Remington 870 "Witness Protection"

A Remington 870 "Witness Protection" with synthetic furniture is used by Miguel "The Jaguar" Gomez (Raoul Trujillo) in S04E02. In a continuity error the shotgun initially has a short barrel, but then has a longer barrel in a later scene.

Rifles

Unidentified AKM Variant

Multiple terrorists in the series can be seen with AKM type rifles during the episodes filmed in South Africa (S04E01 - S04E04). All features match those of the AKM with the exception of the gas tube, which is an earlier pattern perforated one. It is possible that these rifle are a foreign copy that used a different configuration of parts, such as the FEG SA-85M with the furniture changed.

FEG SA-85M - 7.62x39mm
One of the terrorists who have captured Baxter in S04E01 carries this rifle.
Note the combination of a ported gas tube and AKM front sight which could indicate it is a FEG variant.
Multiple Hezbollah fighters in S04E04 carry AKM type rifles.

CSA SA vz. 58 Compact

CSA SA vz. 58 Compacts chambered in 5.56x45mm are the standard carbines carries by Section 20 during the episodes filmed in South Africa (S04E01 - S04E04).

CSA SA vz. 58 Compact - 5.56x45mm
Sgt. Michael Stonebridge (Philip Winchester) carries a customized CSA SA vz. 58 Compact in S04E01. It has been fitted with a magazine well to allow it to feed from standard AR-15 magazine and has a flashlight clamped under the front sight block, a suppressor, and an Aimpoint red dot sight attached via a side mounted MIL-STD-1913 rail.
Strike Back S04E01 055.jpg
Strike Back S04E01 059.jpg
During the firefight at the end of S04E01 the side mounting clamp of the sight rail fails causing it to fall into the actors face. This (apparent) error was kept in, but with sound effects and sparks giving the impression that it was shot off.
In subsequent shots however, the sight is present and undamaged. Note that now the attaching lever of the mount is taped down, which would suggest that the cause of it falling off was not a mechanical failure, but rather the lever catching on something and coming undone.

M4A1 (mock up)

Sgt. Damien Scott (Sullivan Stapleton) and DEA Special Agent Kim Martinez (Milauna Jackson) both carry rifles resembling M4A1s in S04E01. However, neither of these rifles appear to be actual M4s but rather mock ups, possibly based on fixed carry handle guns that have had the carry handle machined off and a rail bolted on in its place. Scott's rifle is fitted with an Aimpoint red dot sight and railed handguard, whilst Martinez's has a standard handguard and ACOG. These M4A1 mock-ups continue to be used by members of Section 20 for the remainder of the episodes filmed in South Africa (S04E01 - S04E04).

Colt M4A1 - 5.56x45mm
A side view of Scott's rifle showing the differences from a genuine M4A1. Firstly it has a tear drop shaped forward assist plunger which was replaced with a round one long before the M4 was developed. Secondly it can be seen that the rail is a different colour and made from a separate piece of metal bolted on to the receiver. Also visible at the front of the upper receiver is what appears to be the remains of the contouring where the front of the carry handle used to attach to the gun. Scott's rifle appears to be built on an A1 lower
Martinez with her rifle on the boat. Note the presence of a screw head front pivot pin and lack of a front push pin detent housing or magazine fence indicating that the rifle is built on an SP1 lower.

A side view of Martinez's rifle. Note what appears to be the contouring at the front and back of the upper receiver where a fixed carry handle was possibly previously installed. Also note that her rifle is feeding from a CAA polymer magazine.
Martinez's rifle appears to be fitted with a genuine M4 profile barrel.
Note that the contouring of the barrel which makes it superficially resemble an M4 is fake, appearing to be a short metal sleeve slipped over the barrel ahead of the front sight block.

The two unnamed Section 20 soldiers who accompany Locke to extract Bravo Team in S04E04 carry M4s. Note the unusual profile of the barrel with the section of the barrel ahead of the front sight being wider than that behind it. This barrel is possibly mocked up to resemble an M4 one by using a cosmetic sleeve on the front section.
Lt. Col. Philip Locke (Robson Green) carries an M4 in S04E04.

Custom Shortened FN FAL

Custom shortened FN FAL carbines can be seen being used by one of Martinez's team along with several Columbian Cartel guards in S04E01, and by a PMC in S04E02. They resemble DSA SA58 OSW rifles, however they lack the railed top cover, along with the fact that this American made weapon would be unlikely to appear in a South African filmed production. In at least two scenes, the rifle is equipped with a VLTOR CASV rail system.

DSA SA58 OSW - 7.62x51mm. Aside from the railed top cover and 30 round magazine, this rifle is a very close match for the one that appears in the show.

Custom Shortened Heckler & Koch G3

Custom shortened Heckler & Koch G3 carbines can be seen being used by one of Martinez's team, along with several Columbian Cartel guards in S04E01. They appear to have a chopped down version of the vented handguard which is used on South African G3s and appear with either solid or retractable stocks.

Namibian G3A3

One of the men in Martinez's team in S04E01 can be seen with a Namibian G3A3. Although only the handguard and barrel of the weapon is visible in a single shot, it can be distinguished from the custom shortened G3 variants listed above by the fact that the entire handguard is visible which hasn't been altered, as opposed to the above weapon which has a shortened handguard.

Namibian G3A3 - 7.62x51mm NATO
The handguard and barrel of the weapon is visible in the top left of the shot.

Vektor R1

Vektor R1s are a common weapon used by antagonists on the show during the episodes filmed in South Africa (S04E01 - S04E04).

Unidentified AKMS Variant

Multiple terrorists in the series can be seen with AKMS type rifles during the episodes filmed in South Africa (S04E01 - S04E04. All features match those of the AKM with the exception of the gas tube, which is an earlier pattern perforated one. It is possible that these rifle are a foreign copy that used a different configuration of parts, such as the FEG SA-85 Underfolder with the furniture changed.

FEG SA-85 Underfolder - 7.62x39mm
Several of The Jaguar's men in S04E02 carry these rifles. Both rifles feature a muzzle nut, but only the one on the right has the AKM style flash hider attached. Note the perforated gas tube visible on the left rifle, a feature which wouldn't be there on a Russian AKMS.

Custom AR-15 Marksman Rifle

Miguel "The Jaguar" Gomez (Raoul Trujillo) uses a custom AR-15 rifle in S04E02. It appear to be the same rifle that appeared in Season 3, and features a railed handguard, Magpul PRS stock, ACOG, low profile gas block, triangular handguard ring, and an upper receiver resembling that of an SP1 (no forward assist or brass deflector) but with a sight rail. This upper receiver is either a non Colt spec one made by another manufacturer, or it is a standard SP1 upper that has been modified by machining off the carry handle and bolting a rail on in its place. The same rifle appears in S04E04 during the hostage rescue being used by Sgt. Julia Richmond (Michelle Lukes).

AK-47

A pair of what appear to be AK-47s can be seen in the background of the tape featuring Al Zuhari (Kevork Malikyan) at the end of S04E02. Both of them feature Type III milled receivers, however they vary significantly in their finish an furniture, suggesting that one or both may be replicas or different variants. AK-47s are also used extensively by terrorists during the episodes filmed in Europe (S04E05 - S04E10).

AK-47, Type III - 7.62x39mm
A pair of AK-47s as seen during Zuhari's taped message in S04E02. The rifle on the left has a dull gray parkerized finish and a plain handguard, whilst the rifle on the right has a dark blued finish and an AKM type palm-swell handguard.

Vektor R5 (Shorty AK Mockup)

A Vektor R5 mocked up as a short barrelled AK variant is used by Leatherby (Dougray Scott) in S04E03 and S04E04. The rifle is fitted with a side folding Norinco stock with the cheek rest removed, a stamped AKM top cover, black synthetic handguards and an AK-74 muzzle brake. This rifle has previously been seen in both Season 2 and Season 3.

Vektor R5 - 5.56x45mm
In addition to the AK parts this rifle is also fitted with a piece of sheet metal ahead of the magazine well in an attempt to alter the profile of the weapon to make it more closely resemble a normal AK pattern rifle.

AKM

Russian police that respond to the prison riot in S04E07 carry AKMs with black synthetic furniture.

Romanian AKM with black synthetic furniture - 7.62x39mm. The furniture used on the rifles in the show appears to be AK-74M furniture, with a groove running along the stock.
Note the black synthetic stocks.
The rifles are fitted with standard AKM front sight and gas blocks distinguishing them from the modern AK-103 variant which comes as standard with this furniture, but has an AK-74 style front sight and gas block.

Custom Shortened AKM

Several of the police officers that respond to the prison riot in S04E07 carry shortened variants of the AKM. What appears to be the same weapon is also carried by members of the FSB Spetsnaz unit in S04E08.

Custom AR-15 Carbines

In S04E09 and S04E10 both Sgt. Michael Stonebridge (Philip Winchester) and Sgt. Damien Scott (Sullivan Stapleton) use custom short barrelled AR-15 variants. They are made from different components and have different accessories.

Stonebridge's Carbine

Stonebridge's carbine is made with an A1 lower (fitted with a Magpul MOE stock, pistol grip and trigger guard), an A4 upper (with a teardrop forward assist plunger rather than the more standard round one), and an older model Daniel Defence Lite railed handguard (identified by the three "bolts" on each side of the handguard where it is attached to the upper receiver). The carbine is fitted with a short KAC style QD suppressor, an EOTech 552 holographic sight, Magpul MBUS sights, CAA MGRIP, SureFire flashlight and visible green laser, and is fed from a CAA polymer magazine.

Scott's Carbine

Scott's carbine is fitted with a different combination of upper component, with there being a gap between the receiver rail and the top handguard rail meaning it has a rail system other than a Daniel Defence one, and a more typical round A2 style forward assist plunger. The carbine is fitted with a long KAC style QD suppressor, an Aimpoint CompM4, Magpul MBUS sights, Magpul MOE stock, flashlight and visible green laser, and is fed from a Magpul PMAG magazine.

Visible in this shot are some of the markings on the lower receiver of the rifle. The only word that is clearly visible is "DIVISION" at the end of the top line.
Note that the suppressor on Scott's rifle is either damaged or incorrectly attached, as it consistently points slightly downwards.

Scott wedges his carbine into the window of a carriage whislt attaching a C4 charge. Visible in this shot is the discontinuity in the top rail between the handguard and the receiver which indicates it is a different variant to Stonebridge's. Also note that unlike Stonebridge's rifle, Scott's AR has an older-style M16A1 pistol grip, indicating that the weapon is built on an M16A1 receiver.

Custom AR-15 Sniper Rifle

Sgt. Julia Richmond (Michelle Lukes) uses a custom AR-15 based sniper rifle during S04E09 and S04E10. It is built from an A1 lower receiver and and A4 upper receiver, has a heavy fluted barrel with a muzzle brake, and is fitted with a Mugpul PRS stock, rupper pistol grip, Hogue knurled aluminum free float forend, telescopic sight, bipod, and a 10 round magazine with a Magpul Ranger Plate.
