Identification help requested

Could anybody help me to get a better ID on the M4A1 and the grenade launcher? The M4A1 looks like an M4A1 but there's something not quite right. The grenade launcher, in turn, looks actually more like a device that police forces use in riot situations to fire off tear gass grenades. Any help would be much appreciated, --PeeWee055 09:18, 20 December 2011 (CST)

The rifle doesn't have a detachable carry handle which makes it a Colt Model 727. As for the M203, it is an airsoft replica, can tell by the style of the RIS attachment at the back. --commando552 11:47, 20 December 2011 (CST)
Colt Model 727 "M16A2 carbine" - 5.56x45mm
Airsoft M203 made by G&P
As for the handguard, it is an Olympic Arms FIRSH 7.125" Quad Rail (or a JB Unicorn Airsoft replica). --commando552 12:07, 20 December 2011 (CST)
Thanks a lot, glad that you could take a look so quickly. As you can see, I made the necessary revisions already. This still leaves the unidentified stand-alone grenade launcher (last picture of the page). Any ideas anybody? --PeeWee055 13:37, 20 December 2011 (CST)
If you look at the barrel length in looks like a 16" Colt LE Carbine Model 6920 as the flash hider is out farther on the muzzle in the photo than the Model 727.--phoenixent 15:07, 20 December 2011 (CST)
As far as I know Colt has only ever rifles with a 16" M4 profile barrel on a flattop receiver. Looking closer at this rifle, I will admit though that the barrel looks too long for a standard M4 one. Measuring it on the image though, the barrel is shorter than a 16". Could it be one of those rifles with a shorter than 16" barrel but a permanently attached flash hider to make it legal? Can you get any more shots of this gun? As for a gun with a 16" M4 barrel with A2 upper, based on the Oly Arms handguard it could be a K3B of some sort. Also, I think the grenade launcher is a 37mm Webley & Scott Schermuly. --commando552

Thanks for the feedback, please find below two more screenshots of the same rifle. All in all it's just 4 seconds in the whole movie so this is all I have.
What may help is that I learned the other day that in Italy private persons could only shoot guns in 'non-military' calibres (whatever that's supposed to mean). Maybe armorers fall under the same policy, which would explain the many non-firing prop guns in this movie. Let me know if this info helps, --PeeWee055 14:55, 22 December 2011 (CST)
