M16A1

In part two of 'Double Play' (1998) an M16A1 with what appears to be a Cobray 37mm launcher is used for some reason by one of the NSW Police State Protection Group officers during a shoot out with armed robbers. No grenades are fired from the weapons during the scene.

MP5 variants

Throughout the series the SPG officers can be seen with what appear to be MP5 Variants at first, but on closer inspection appear to be modified prop guns, almost a combination of an HK94 'Chopped & Converted' barrel inside an MPSD3 hand-guard for some reason. These MP5 variants are never actually seen to be fired during the series thus it is possible they are "non-guns".

In the episode "Double Play" a tactical officer exits an unmarked 4WD armed with what appears to be a faux MP5. When the tactical officers open fire only CAR-15/M16A1's and shotguns are seen in the hands of the officers.


Heckler & Koch HK94A3 - 9x19mm
The "Fake MP5", the Heckler & Koch HK94A3 Converted to full auto fire, shortened barrel and added third firing position on trigger pack - 9x19mm. This version was used in many films during the 1980s and 1990s.
