Ghostbusters (1984)

Ghostbusters is a 1984 paranormal comedy classic directed by Ivan Reitman and stars Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd and Harold Ramis as three scientists who decide to open a business that deals with catching ghosts throughout New York City. The film's cast included Sigourney Weaver, Ernie Hudson, William Atherton, and Rick Moranis. The film's success would also lead to a 1989 sequel as well as a 2016 feature film "reboot" in addition to the 2021 continuation, Ghostbusters: Afterlife.

The following weapons were used in the film Ghostbusters (1984):

M16A1 Rifle

Near the climax of the film, Army National Guard soldiers sent to provide crowd control and security can be seen armed with M16A1 Rifles. Sharp eyes can also spot a few MGC replica M16s fitted with A1-style flash hiders supplementing the real M16A1s.
