The soldiers at the back of the shot hold what may be Makarovs as they corner Robin and Steve in "Chapter Six: E Pluribus Unum".

"Why you shouldn't bring a Russian to a conspiracy theorist's house in 1985"
, Exhibit A.
A view from a slightly friendlier side of the shotgun.
Rifles / Carbines
Soviet security forces often carry the anachronistic Zastava M92 carbine while guarding shipments at Starcourt Mall, presumably as a stand-in for the contemporary AKS-74U.
A Soviet guard secures a shipment with his Zastava as Steve and Dustin watch in "Chapter Three: The Case of the Missing Lifeguard"
Another guard holds his Zastava as he checks out a noise.
Grigori (Andrey Ivchenko) carries an Zastava M92
with jungle-taped magazines and an equally anachronistic PK-A optic as he enters a Soviet site in "Chapter Five: The Flayed"

Curiously enough, a custom AKMSU appears as Chief Hopper (David Harbour) appropriates one and uses it in the season finale "Chapter Eight: The Battle of Starcourt" (S3E08).

Chief Hopper holds the carbine as he and Murray (Brett Gelman
) infiltrate the Soviet base in disguise in "Chapter Eight: The Battle of Starcourt" (S3E08).
Soviet soldiers are seen armed with Type III AK-47 rifles. This is anachronistic for Soviet soldiers to carry an outdated version of the AK rifle in 1985 as the AK-74 was adopted as the standard rifle.
This is the commercial clone of the original Type III AK-47 and is the most used in American films and shows - 7.62x39mm.

US Army soldiers carry and use M16A2 rifles in "Chapter Eight: The Battle of Starcourt" (S3E08) as they storm the Soviet base. The rifles appear to have large "Maglite"-style flashlights taped to the handguards. While technically not anachronistic for 1985 in which Season 3 is set in; the M16A2's use by US Army soldiers is unlikely as only the US Marine Corps at the time period had adopted the M16A2 in 1983. The US Army on the other hand did not adopt the M16A2 until 1986, and it did not begin reaching any Army units until 1988. In 1985, US Army soldiers would still be issued with M16A1 rifles with 30 round magazines.
M16A2 Rifle - 5.56x45mm. Select Fire rifle (Safe/Semi/3 round Burst Only).
A US Army soldier exits a UH-1 Huey while holding his M16A2 rifle just behind Dr. Owens, giving a great view of the taped on Maglite flashlight. This was actually done but by US special forces in the late 80s when proper weaponlights were just being introduced.
US Army soldiers accompany Dr. Owens all wielding M16A2 rifles in Chapter Eight: The Battle of Starcourt" (S3E08).
US soldiers enter the mall facility holding up the M16A2s in "Chapter Eight: The Battle of Starcourt" (S3E08).

M60D machine gun - 7.62x51mm NATO
As a Huey comes in to land, M60D door guns can be seen.
A better view of a mounted M60D
on a landed Huey. It appears to be the "H" model Huey, the last variant operated by the US Army which was being replaced by UH-60A Blackhawks during this time period.
General Dynamics M197 Vulcan
What is probably meant to be a M197 Vulcan cannon is seen mounted on a AH-1 Cobra as reinforcements arrive at the end of "Chapter Eight: The Battle of Starcourt".
An AH-1 Cobra with M197 cannon flies over Dustin and Erica at the radio tower in "Chapter Eight: The Battle of Starcourt".
