Handguns

Astra A-100

One of the carjackers who shoots at Randall Thomason in the opening scene of the film uses an Astra A-100, which is seen close-up when he lays the weapon on Randall's body after shooting him. Astra A-100s also appear to be carried by several other gangsters throughout the film.

Smith & Wesson 5946

The other of the two carjackers involved in Randall Thomason's murder at the beginning of the film uses a Smith & Wesson 5946. Several gangsters also use these pistols throughout the film.

SIG-Sauer P229

A SIG-Sauer P229 is the pistol used by Karl Thomasson (Treat Williams) in the climax of the film. The weapon appears to be the .357 SIG variant of the P229, as the 9x19mm model was not available at the time of filming; the prop weapon repeatedly stovepipes when firing blank rounds.

Rifles/Carbines

Bushmaster XM15 "V-Match"

When Karl and Joey Six confront Lil B's (Guru's) gang at their warehouse, Karl uses a flattop AR-15 carbine fitted with an old blocky laser sight and suppressor to shoot at the gangsters. The rifle is not seen clearly, but appears to be a variation of the Bushmaster XM15 "V-Match" with a 16" barrel; it may also be the similar Olympic Arms K16. In the era of the Assault Weapons Ban (1994-2004), both carbines were sold widely as "sporter"-type AR-15 configurations.

Norinco Type 84

Joey Six receives a Norinco Type 84 from the custodian Johnny Bartee but it jams during the shootout with the gangsters. During the final shootout, one of the gangbangers also carries a Type 84 that has been visually modified to resemble a Romanian AIMR, fitted with the AIMS-style stock, a cut-down barrel, and an AK-74-style flash hider.

A gangster fires a Norinco Type 84 that has been modified to resemble a Romanian AIMR carbine; note that the front sight is not affixed to the gas tube, and the weapon has a metal magazine, smooth receiver cover, and standard slim handguard, all giveaway details that this is a modified Type 84 and not a genuine AIMR. Also note that the gangster in the background is covering his ears; apparently, the actor wasn't wearing hearing protection even though automatic weapons were firing loud motion picture blank ammunition in a narrow hallway.

M14

An M14 is one of the rifles taken out by Jonathan Bartee and then is taken up by Karl.

An Olympic Arms K23B - 5.56x45mm. The one in the film has an A1E1-style upper receivers (forward assist and case deflector with A1 sights), whereas this gun has an A2 upper receiver and the 6-position collapsible stock, but the barrel and forearm are identical.
