Submachine Guns


During snow survival training, Donald Quinelle (Robin Williams) uses a full auto Uzi Submachine gun, which, by the way is not a weapon one can buy over the counter from a gun store, even in 1983. This same weapon, however, is seen hanging over the fireplace in Donald's personal cabin which strongly implies that it is his and not a loaner.

Smith & Wesson 76 Model Submachine gun

Several of the survival training students are seen with full automatic firing Smith & Wesson Model 76 submachine guns. At this time, Smith & Wesson were still selling the semi-auto only 16" barrel carbine of the same weapon over the counter. It is assumed (in the context of the story) that these were semiautomatic carbines that were later chopped and converted by their owners.

Many Handguns and rifles are seen on display at the gun store, however, the shots are out of focus being that the camera focuses on Donald and not the back walls.
