The following firearms are used in the movie UHF:
Ruger Single Six
During the opening sequence (which is a parody of Raiders of the Lost Ark), an unnamed villain tried to draw a Ruger Single Six revolver.
Early Ruger Single Six (known as the "old Model") - .22LR
During the Gandhi II trailer, a street thug is seen with an unidentified revolver.
Colt Gold Cup National Match
The "action movie villain" makes one last attempt to kill the Rambo-spoofing George with a Colt Gold Cup National Match.
Colt Gold Cup National Match (Mark IV, Series 70) - .45 ACP
Ruger Service Six
One of Fletcher's thugs carries a Ruger Service Six.
Ruger Service Six - .357 Magnum
Smith & Wesson Model 681
One of Fletcher's goons carries a Smith & Wesson Model 681.
Smith & Wesson Model 681 - .357 Magnum
Heckler & Koch MP5A3
During the Gandhi II trailer, Gandhi (Jay Levey) is seen using a H&K MP5A3.
Heckler & Koch MP5A3 - 9x19mm
Norinco Type 56
During the Rambo parody near the end of the movie, George ("Weird Al" Yankovic) imagines a stereotypical action-movie villain who shoots at him with a Norinco Type 56.
Norinco Type 56 (Imported into the U.S. as the Norinco AKS-47 or AKS-47 Sporter) - 7.62x39mm
Note the hooded front sight of the rifle as the enemy officer opens fire.
Even at the ridiculously close range, the officer cannot hit his target. This is in reference to Rambo: First Blood Part II
, when the Vietnamese officer wasted numerous rounds with his rifle and couldn't hit Rambo.
A group of soldiers armed with Kalashnikov rifles are seen near the end of the Rambo parody. As we are never given anything other than a long distance view of the weapons, it is impossible to determine if they are genuine AK-47s or AK clones.
Maadi ARM - most of the AKMs seen in movies during the 1980s were imported ARMs that were legally converted to full auto fire. This image is of an actual movie gun. The laminated buttstock was replaced with a hardwood one when the original stock was broken during a stunt. This example is also loaded with a 30-round bakelite plastic magazine - 7.62x39mm
Two Browning M2 machine guns can be seen during the Rambo parody, the first mounted on a jeep, the second behind a barricade.
Browning M2HB on vehicle mount - .50 BMG
M60 Machine Gun
During the Rambo parody, George ("Weird Al" Yankovic) uses an early model M60 machine gun (Rambo's iconic weapon from First Blood). The muzzle flashes were obviously added post-production, as he uses it without any sort of ammunition.
M60 machine gun - 7.62x51mm NATO
