Sub-Machine Guns

Micro Uzi

The other DEA agent Thomas Wolfe (Chris Anderson) uses a Micro Uzi as his main sidearm, using it mostly in semi-automatic. The drug dealer Moretti (B.G. Fisher) also uses his own with a two-toned finish. Several other drug dealers are seen with them throughout the film. Temple is seen with one in his holster when he is promoted to a senior agent.

Some of Lazzaro's bodyguards are seen with full sized Uzis. DEA agents Hector Garcia (Alek Markham) and Temple use them when ambushed by Moretti in Mexico City, and continue using them throughout the rest of the film. Temple always keeps his with a small suppressor, while Garcia's has a flash hider. In one scene, it is obvious that a drug lab guard is using the same prop Uzi used by Temple.

Colt AR-15 Carbine

One of the Moretti's henchmen in the beginning takes a Colt AR-15 Sporter Carbine from his car and fires at the agents. Some of the Mexico City ambushers also use them, as do guards at Lazzaro's compound during the final assault, filling in for the MCG M16s in some shots. In one scene in the finale, the magazine from the Carbine is visible falling out. Garcia also finds several Carbines in crates in Lazzaro's drug factory.
