The Dictator is a 2012 comedy directed by Larry Charles (Borat) starring Sacha Baron Cohen, Ben Kingsley, and Anna Faris. Baron Cohen stars as Admiral General Aladeen, despot of the fictional North African country of Wadiya, which appears to take the place of Eritrea on the map. Typical for his movies, Baron Cohen promoted the film in character, including an appearance at the 84th Academy Awards.
The following weapons were used in the film The Dictator:
Admiral General Aladeen (Sacha Baron Cohen) carries a gold plated Beretta 92FS as his personal sidearm.
Gold Beretta 92FS - 9x19mm
The Golden Beretta in Aladeen's holster.
He never draws the Beretta in the theatrical cut.
The Beretta is drawn in a scene in the unrated edition. It is also shown during the end credits of the theatrical cut. The Wadiyan uniforms appear to be US Desert Battle Dress Uniforms ("chocolate chips camo") dyed teal.
Aladeen apologizes for accidentally shooting his soldier. He explains that he thought the gun was on Aladeen. (The joke in the film being that he changed several words to "Aladeen.") But as we can see here, the gun is actually in Aladeen, er, safe.
Aladeen pulls out a Colt Mustang against his double Efawadh (also Sacha Baron Cohen).

Aladeen's uncle Tamir (Ben Kingsley) is seen grabbing a security guard's Glock 19.

Some of Aladeen's troops and his virgin guard are seen carrying Cybergun AK-47 Airsoft rifles.
Aladeen's virgin guards are of course based on Muammar Gaddafi's Revolutionary Nuns.

"$20 a day for Internet? What the fuck? And they accuse me of being an international criminal?
Heckler & Koch MP5 (airsoft)
Nadal (Jason Mantzoukas) has a partially disassembled Heckler & Koch MP5 in his apartment. This is quite clearly a disassembled airsoft MP5 (note the gearbox, inner barrel, and battery pack holder in the pistol grip).
