Baby: Secret of the Lost Legend (1985)

The following weapons were used in the film Baby: Secret of the Lost Legend:

SIG SG 540

Soldiers commanded by Colonel Nsogbu (Olu Jacobs) use SIG SG 540 assault rifles throughout the film. At the time of filming (and to this day), the SG 540 was the standard service rifle of the Ivory Coast, where the movie was filmed.

Nsogbu and his soldiers use MAT-49 submachine guns. During the storming of the soldiers' riverside stockade, a few natives relieve the troops of their MAT-49s and use them themselves. Most of the MAT-49s seen in the film are fitted with the military-issue blank-firing adapter. As with the SG 540s, these weapons were provided by the government of the Ivory Coast, where the movie was filmed.

Heckler & Koch HK94

A couple of the soldiers wield Heckler & Koch HK94s. Unlike the SG 540s and MAT-49s, these weapons were not provided by the Ivory Coast armed forces (where the majority of the movie was filmed). Additional re-shoots were filmed in the U.S., and the HK94s were provided by American armorers who did not have access to the same weaponry as the Ivory Coast armorers.

Telinject VARIO blowpipe rifle

Called simply "the tranquilizer gun," this dart-firing weapon is used throughout the film by the dinosaur hunters, Nigel Jenkins (Julian Fellowes) in particular. Based on the year 1985, that the gun is propelled by CO2, and the dart configuration, the gun is most likely a Telinject VARIO rifle.
