For some reason, the ejector is on the wrong side.
We never do find out what is in that briefcase.
Kenny Loggins: "Drop it. Drop it on the ground." Archer: "Do you know how bad that is for it? I will place it on the ground."
Kenny Loggins, or "K-Log", realized he fired all six rounds at Archer.

Charleville Musket Mle 1766 - .69 caliber
Note that the weapon is mirrored. This is commonly done in the show when the weapon is shown from different sides, presumably to save time on drawing new artwork.


Columbian paramilitary soldiers use M16A1s. Archer commandeers one. They appear to have birdcage flash hiders and lack chrome lined bolt carriers, but, due to an animation error, do not appear to even have magazine releases.

M16A1 with 20 round magazine - 5.56x45mm. What distinguishes it from the original M16 was the addition of a raised rib around the magazine release button, changing of the forward Receiver pins, and the addition of the forward assist button on the upper receiver.
