Do you think the M16A1 is actually a Colt AR-15A2 Sporter II? There's the forward assist, but no fencing around the mag release. --Funkychinaman (talk) 01:03, 28 February 2013 (EST)
- Possibly, although a full profile shot of the rifles is never seen in the film. The rifles do have triangular handguards, but that doesn't rule out your suggestion either. --Markit (talk) 17:47, 28 February 2013 (EST)
I think there's some G3A4s seen during the fake execution.--Mandolin (talk) 09:18, 28 February 2013 (EST)
- There are no G3A4s in the mock execution scene, just G3A3s whose buttstocks are obscured by the shoulders of the guards. --Markit (talk) 17:48, 28 February 2013 (EST)
Since these are actual photos of real people, I'm not sure to include these on the front page. --Ben41 (talk) 08:08, 30 December 2013 (EST)
An Iranian Revolutionary Guard brandishes a HK G3A3 in a period photo.
In another period photo, Iranian troops execute captured Kurdish militants with G3A3s. This photo won the 1980 Pulitzer Prize for Spot News Photography.
