) pulls her Walther PPK on Mack and the other Unit members.
Walther PPK/S (Brixia 8mm Walther Blank Firing Pistol)
In the Season 2 finale "Paradise Lost" (S2E23), Jonas takes out a Walther PPK/S from a rodent station and gives it to his wife Molly (Regina Taylor). The pistol is actually a Brixia 8mm Walther Blank Firing Pistol.
As stated by MoviePropMaster2008, "I just checked the lower image against the one I have. Brixia Arms used to make this type of blank gun about 10 years ago, but their quality was pretty bad. There 'might' be some available, but the majority of the 8mm theatrical blank firing PPKs on the market now are made by Kimar or Voltran. What tips it off, is the writing on the slide (it is identical to the markings on my Brixia Nickel plated Walther PPK theatrical blank gun) and the hole drilled in the top of the barrel (where the ejection port is). This hole allows the flash from the blank round to fire upwards since the barrel is blocked, this is an Italian police Brixia 8mm as I have an identical one, also the magazine is a thin single-stack type that only holds those skinny 8mm blank rounds."
Walther PPK/S with Pachmayr grips - .380 ACP
In the Season 2 finale "Paradise Lost" (S2E23), Jonas takes the Walther out from the rodent station.

Hotchkiss "Type Universal"
A Hotchkiss "Type Universal" is briefly seen in "The Broom Cupboard" (S2E12). While the Hotchkiss is a French weapon, it's implied that the US government is supplying the rebels with them.
Hotchkiss "Type Universal" - 9x19mm
A Hotchkiss "Type Universal" is briefly seen in "The Broom Cupboard" (S2E12).
M4A1 carbines are used by all members of the Unit, often with a 40mm M203 grenade launcher, and with an optical sight (normally the Trijicon ACOG, Aimpoint CompM2 and/or EOTech 552 Holographic sight). Sometimes they switch with HK416s.

While M16A2s are more prevalent in the series, the M16A1 is also featured in several episodes.
M16A1s are part of the weapons cache in the back of the smuggler's van in "Manhunt" (S2E04). Note that most of the guns here are obviously rubber props.
A prison guard cradles an M16A1.
M16A1 with A2 handguards - 5.56x45mm
In "Natural Selection" (S2E08), one of the candidates carries an M16A1 with A2-style handguards. Note the A1-style barrel profile, distinguishing this rifle from the one Bob is carrying in this scene.
The M16A2 is usually found in the hands of non-Unit members of the military, such as regular Army units in "Dark of the Moon" (S2E17).
US Army soldiers fire their M16s in "Dark of the Moon" (the soldier at the far right appears to have an M16A4). Note the camera crew briefly visible on the right.

In "Dark of the Moon" (S2E17), at least one US Army soldier can be seen armed with an M16A4, identified by the removable carry handle/rear sight assembly.
A US Army soldier (second from left) aims an M16A4.
Armorer David Aaron with an M16A4 with M203 grenade launcher.
In "Natural Selection" (S2E08), Bob uses an unusual variant of the M16 during his Unit selection training. It appears to be neither an A1 or A2, as it has an upper receiver with A1 sights and the heavier-profile A2 barrel with A2 handguards. It most resembles a Model 715 (Canadian C7), but until a better shot of the right side of the receiver comes along or the episode's armorer himself states, a definitive ID is impossible.
In Season 2's "Natural Selection", Bob must attribute quotations while he fires his M16 in the training exercise.

Heckler & Koch HK416
One of the rifles that Unit members use is the Heckler & Koch HK416 in the the D10RS sub-variant with a 10-inch barrel. Grey and Jonas both use 416s with ACOG scopes mounted on M4 carrying handles in the Season 2 finale "Paradise Lost" (S2E23). The others usually have the EOTech 552 Holographic sight attached.
Heckler & Koch HK416 with 10-inch barrel - 5.56x45mm
HK416 D10RS sub-variant with EOTech 552 Holographic sight, forward handgrip, and AN/PEQ-2 - 5.56x45mm
Grey fires his HK416 fitted with scope and tactical light in "Paradise Lost" (S2E23). Throughout the series, ACOG scopes are always seen attached to rifles via carrying handle mounts (with the exception of "Dedication" (S1E07)) as opposed to simply using the rails. Apparently, the show's armorers didn't have any RIS mounts available throughout the show's run.
Sa vz. 58 V
In "Bait" (S2E10), the Georgian rebels who hold Jonas hostage are armed with the Sa vz. 58 V.

) in "Bait" (S2E10).
AKMSU carbines (AKM rifles converted with Krinkov parts kits and AKS-74U side-folding stocks) are used in several episodes.
AKMSU Krinkov - 7.62x39mm. This is a blank adapted full auto transferable AKM (7.62x39mm) pistol that was converted into a Krinkov via parts kit.
The custom short-barreled AKMS/Type 56-1 seen in Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines and Rambo is used by Bob in "Extreme Rendition" (S2E02).
Custom AKMS Assault Rifle with folded stock - 7.62x39mm. This custom rifle has parts from the Norinco Type 56 and the AKMS. In reality, these rifles don't interchange parts, but it was possible since the gun is massively customized and practically rebuilt from scratch.
Bob uses an AKM with customized shortened barrel in "Extreme Rendition" (S2E02).
Seen throughout the series, but featured prominently in "Johnny B. Goode" (S2E13), where each member of the Unit carries an AKM rifle fitted with suppressor and Surefire light on their mission to Iran.

Stevens 512 Gold Wing O/U Shotgun
In "Report by Exception" (S2E09), Jonas shoots skeet with a Stevens 512 Gold Wing O/U chambered in 12 gauge owned by the Oil Minister (it seems that even high-ranking government officials cheap out on shotgun choice).

FN MAG mocked up as M240
FN MAG machine guns mocked up to resemble the M240 are seen in use by US Army troops in "Dark of the Moon" (S2E17). They are recognizable as the M240G due to lack of heat shield but most likely, these are actually original FN MAGs mocked up to look like the M240G.
FN MAG 58 mocked up to resemble an M240, with synthetic buttstock and heatshield added - 7.62x51mm NATO
In "Dark of the Moon" (S2E17), regular Army forces are seen firing the mocked up FN MAG.

Browning Automatic Rifle - .30-06
In "Silver Star" (S2E11), the US soldier on the right fires the BAR.
M16A4 (Sporter Competition H-Bar)
M16A4s are shown prominently in "The Kill Zone" (S2E03) where, for some strange reason, the entire Unit goes into the field carrying them and their man that was pinned down also carries one. It is should be noted that Jonas recognized the sound of a "7.62" shot distinctly over the enemy sniper's weapon to recognize it as one of their own (hinting that these are supposed to be standing in for SR-25 rifles. The fact that they use 20-round magazines further supports this theory. The problem is that all of their rifles fire 5.56x45mm, including the man they were rescuing, who clearly is using an M16A4. At the beginning of the episode, Bob trains a group of Unit recruits who are all using these rifles. Prop wise, these are probably the same ones used later in the episodes by the rest of the Unit cast out in the field. While they are usually seen fired in semi-auto mode, Mack fires a burst of 5-10 rounds, proving that these rifles are in fact capable of full-auto fire.
It's worth noting that the sound signature of the "7.62" that Jonas recognized was much beefier than that of a 5.56x45mm round.

Technical Adviser Eric Hane demonstrates the Cheyenne Tactical M-200 Intervention to Scott Foley
(Bob Brown). Haney originally wanted the .50 caliber Barrett to be used, but Armorer Roland Bleitz opted to use the M-200, likely because that's what was on hand.

Chinese Type 69 RPG
Several Type 69 launchers are used throughout the series. In "Dark of the Moon" (S2E17), Jonas takes one from a fallen tribal warrior and uses it during the enemy onslaught. Both examples seen here are the Chinese Type 69 launchers (the Chinese version of the Soviet RPG-7). The biggest difference is that the Chinese RPG has only one pistol grip. The second hand has to grasp a carry handle on top of the launcher. The Type 69s in the series have PGO-7 scopes mounted on the launcher.
Type 69 RPG with optical sight - 40mm
In "Dark of the Moon" (S2E17), Jonas prepares to fire the captured RPG.

Two gun racks are seen in the office of the hardware store in "Manhunt" (S2E04). The one on the left appears to contain Kalashnikov pattern rifles, while the one on the right has AR-15 style weapons.
"Dark of the Moon" Uniforms
Two "regular Army" soldiers with their M16A2s in "Dark of the Moon" (S2E17). Note several things about the uniforms: the helmet worn by the soldier on the right does not appear to be the ACH/MICH TC-2000 or anything similar. Also note that the soldier on the right does not have helmet straps in addition to his helmet cover being on backwards. The Rhinomount baseplate on the other soldier's helmet is not installed correctly. The soldiers' ACUs also lack the IR tabs or even the IR tab covers; another interesting thing is that they wear the patch of the 23rd "Americal" Infantry Division, a unit that has been inactive since 1971 (though the use of an inactive Army unit was likely on purpose).
