The Cassandra Crossing (1976) is an action thriller directed by George P. Cosmatos (Rambo: First Blood Part II,Tombstone,Cobra). Passengers on board an international express train are threatened by a deadly and highly contagious virus after an infected terrorist stows away on the train following a failed bomb attack. Fearing a global epidemic, U.S. Colonel Mackenzie (Burt Lancaster) orders the train to be hermetically closed and the train to be redirected to a derelict bridge in Poland known as the Cassandra Crossing. The passengers must fight for their lives against the virus and the authorities who are determined to prevent them from escaping.

The following weapons can be seen in the film The Cassandra Crossing:


Several characters use M1911A1 pistols of an unidentified make. Most of these appear to be the same prop.

Adler-Jager AP74

Some of the soldiers are armed with Adler-Jager AP-74s, standing in for M16 rifles. The AP74 is distinguishable by their three prong flash-hiders and the small .22 LR magazines that stick out from the dummy 5.56 magazine.
