A-Team, The - Season 3
Work In Progress
The following weapons were used in Season 3 of the television series The A-Team:
The Browning Hi-Power is one of the handguns frequently used by Col. John "Hannibal" Smith (George Peppard), notably in Season 1's "Black Day at Bad Rock". During Season 3, it becomes H. M. Murdock's (Dwight Schultz) sidearm of choice.
The M1911 and many variants are carried at various times by A-Team members, U.S. Military Police pursuing the A-Team, and various bad guys. A nickel plated version is seen through Seasons 4 and 5.

Colt Lawman MK III
A nickel plated Colt Lawman MK III is used primarily by Lt. Templeton "Faceman" Peck (Dirk Benedict). It is correctly referred to as a ".357 magnum" in "Skins" (S3E17).

A Single Action Army is used in the Wild West show. General Fulbright also carries two SAA in crossdraw holsters in "The A-Team Is Coming, the A-Team Is Coming", Season 4.
Smith & Wesson Model 10
Among the vast arsenal of revolvers featured on The A-Team, is the Smith & Wesson Model 10.
Smith & Wesson Model 13
This revolver is among those primarily used by the bad guys on the show.
Submachine Guns & Semi-Auto Carbines
The A3 model of the Heckler & Koch HK94 are featured throughout the series. They appear to have the early "Slimline" forearms featured on older versions of the MP5.
The Intratec TEC-9 appears on numerous occasions throughout The A-Team, being among the favourite weapons of the show's bad guys.
The Micro Uzi is used throughout the series by both the A-Team and bad guys.
Ruger Mini 14 Stainless version with Folding stock
When the show began its full run in 1984, the producers decided not to have the team use different weapons every week, primarily due to budget concerns. Beginning with its second season, the A-Team favored the Ruger Mini-14 with a factory folding stock in Stainless steel. Contrary to popular belief, these were not the fully automatic Ruger AC556 rifles, but the Semi auto only Ruger Mini 14 with folding stocks. Close examination of the show reveals that the actors are pulling the triggers quickly and only a few spent brass casing as flying out, despite the sound effects of full auto fire. Also the cuts in editing, showing bullet squibs and 'dust hits' against the ground and buildings, created the illusion of full auto firing Ruger rifles. Since Americans had not yet been exposed to 'assault weapon bans' being that this was the mid 1980s, the title 1 classified Ruger rifles were easy to transport across state and local lines with no paperwork hassles. The rifles were actually purchased for the show and were kept on permanent storage in the show's props containers during the show's run.

Double Barreled Shotgun
The M60 was the regular squad support weapon in the series, always used by Hannibal Smith (George Peppard) and rarely by B.A. Baracus (Mr. T) even though he would have been the obvious choice but was more often relegated to using a nickel plated Star Model BM with ivory grips.
