Modified L1A1

Leo Gelhorn (George Grizzard) uses a custom shortened L1A1 SLR. The rifle is similar to the South African R1 "Battle Carbine" although it has an L1A1 front sight and carry handle (it also features "sand cuts" on the bolt carrier, which are zig-zag grooves typically only found on Commonwealth rifles that were designed as a self-cleaning measure for removing dust and sand from the action). The rifles appears to be the same one that was used by Ian Yule in The Wild Geese

25mm Olin Flare Gun

A 25mm Orion flare gun is used by Jerry Fanon to ignite some fuel. The gun used is based on an older model that was commercially available under the Winchester "Olin" brand before it became Orion. These flare pistols had a black satin finish and bright orange grips, which are the inverse colours of the current Orion models with white and blue colours.
