Weapons to be identified
Need help ID'ing these weapons. --Ben41 05:54, 3 August 2011 (CDT)
- Probably a Vektor R4/R5 modified to resemble an AK-47 based on the magazine. --Markit 09:25, 3 August 2011 (CDT)
- It's definitely a South African Vektor, look at the upward slant of the receiver ahead of the magazine well. MoviePropMaster2008 13:52, 3 August 2011 (CDT)
This is a Vektor R5 or a Galil AR with a very short barrel - if something like that exists... Galil SAR maybe.- bozitojugg3rn4ut 06:47, 3 August 2011 (CDT)
- Most likely a Vektor R5 since the film was made in South Africa. --Markit 09:25, 3 August 2011 (CDT)
That looks like a Mk 12 Special Purpose Rifle or at least a AR-15 made to resemble it. - Mr. Wolf 19:17, 3 August 2011 (CDT)
- It's indeed a Mark 12. Maybe someone who has seen this could explain to me why he doesn't have a scope, though. Spartan198 18:33, 11 December 2011 (CST)
- Actually, upon closer examination, notice that the handguard has only 4 holes, compared to the 7 or 8 on the Mark 12 pictured. This means it has a carbine-length barrel. What this is, is an A&K SPR Carbine, an airsoft gun.  Spartan198 18:42, 11 December 2011 (CST)
No way that's a jungle carbine. The rear iron sight placement alone indicates a longer rifle. If it is short (Can't see by the single screenshot) then it was cut down, as were many longer No 1 Mk IIIs or No 4 Mk 1s to make 'jungle carbines' during the war.

It has a magazine of an SMLE but the barrel looks like a Winchester. --Ben41 15:03, 3 August 2011 (CDT)
Maybe it's a modified Enfield Enforcer? --Taurus96 17:53, 3 August 2011 (CDT).
I'd say it's a l42a1 or enforcer so it's chambered in 7.62 and fitted with a heavier barrel. both would make sense for everyones description and that its being used as an SWS.
Definitely not a Jungle Carbine, nor an L42A1 or Enforcer. The L42A1 and Enforcer were built on==Jungle carbine== No way that's a jungle carbine. The rear iron sight placement alone indicates a longer rifle. If it is short (Can't see by the single screenshot) then it was cut down, as were many longer No 1 Mk IIIs or No 4 Mk 1s to make 'jungle carbines' during the war.

No 4 actions, and the Jungle Carbine on a modified version of that action, which can be distinguished readily by its flat sides and peep sight built into a bracket on the rear bridge. The conversions to 7.62 have a different-shaped magazine (less angled at the bottom). This one is built on a No 1 Mk III* action (aka SMLE III*) with the forend and handguard cut back to sporter form as was quite popular in former Commonwealth countries post WWII when these rifles were dumped onto the civilian market. The rear sight base and ramp remain in place but the leaf and elevator have been removed. The scope mount is an aftermarket (non-military) type as is the scope - which looks like a Tasco. IOW it is nothing more than a sporterised SMLE, probably in .303 (though cartridges based on the .303 necked down, eg .303/25, .303/270, were also popular in places like Australia). Dan M
Could it be a Lee-Speed? Sandymon
- No, bolt is wrong. it is definitely a Lee-Enfield. More specifically I'm pretty sure that based on the design of the charger clip guide, lack of a magazine cut off and the position of the rear sight it is a No 1 Mk III*. --commando552 (talk) 17:49, 14 April 2013 (EDT)
i think if you take a close look at millers sniper rifle you will see its actually a mauser 98 rather than a m40 remington 700 the mauser has a long claw type extracter which is visible in several scenes.... oh and btw the italion uses a mauser 98 as well . [dalemac37]
the italion's rifle
the enemy sniper is also carring a mauser 98 !
