Congo is the 1995 feature film adaptation of the Michael Crichton bestseller of the same name. Directed by Frank Marshall, the film follows a group of scientists who travel deep into the Congo jungle while searching for some colleagues who have gone missing after their camp was destroyed by an unknown force. The cast included Dylan Walsh, Laura Linney, Ernie Hudson, and Bruce Campbell.
The following weapons were used in the film Congo:
Captain Munro Kelly (Ernie Hudson) carries a Custom M1911A1 pistol with an extended target front sight, a Bomar Rear Sight, and a Safari Arms Ambidextrous Safety.
A Luger P08 is carried and fired by Dr. Peter Elliot (Dylan Walsh).
25mm Orion Flare Gun
Captain Munro Kelly (Ernie Hudson) and Dr. Karen Ross (Laura Linney) both use 25mm Orion Flare Guns to shoot down rockets.
In addition to his M14 rifle, Kahega (Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje) also carries and uses a MAC-10 Submachine gun.
During the negotiations after their arrest, a Junta soldier is seen threatening a man with an MP40 submachine gun.
Dr. Karen Ross (Laura Linney) carries and uses an Uzi Submachine gun during the final battle. The Uzi is later used by Dr. Peter Elliot (Dylan Walsh).
M60 Machine Gun
An M60 Machine gun is briefly seen during the escape attempt from the Mwanzaa Airport.
During the same sequence an MG34 is also seen being wielded by a Junta soldier.
FN FAL 50.61 Paratrooper
Captain Munro Kelly (Ernie Hudson) carries an FN FAL 50.61 Paratrooper rifle.
Kahega (Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje) carries an M14 Rifle.
Norinco Type 56
Soldiers at the Mwanzaa Airport carry Chinese Norinco Type 56 rifles. Junta soldiers prior to their entry into Tanzania (and then into Zaire) also carry Norinco Type 56-1s.
Rocky Mountain Arms Patriot Pistol
A full-auto Rocky Mountain Arms Patriot Pistol is seen being loaded by Kelly's men prior to the night battle and Dr. Karen Ross (Laura Linney) ends up using it during the fight. The pistol is built up from a Patriot barreled upper receiver on a full-auto Colt XM lower (possibly a Model 614 Export version), which has a partial magazine fence as opposed to the "slab side" receiver found on the SP1 Sporter. Rather than use the short buffer tube on most AR-15 pistol variants, the armorers simply removed the XM177 style buttstock from the standard Carbine Buffer tube and kept it on the firearm. The finishes are noticeably different from the Patriot upper receiver and the Colt lower receiver. These custom firearms appear to have also been used in 1998's Soldier.
Remington Model 700
A background Kelly man holds what appears to be a Remington Model 700 bolt action rifle with on scope or iron sights but never fires it. Facing a horde of attacking Grey Gorillas one would want an assault rifle at the least.
Munro Kelly (Ernie Hudson) is seen armed with a Franchi SPAS-12 shotgun when fighting the Zinj Gorillas.
Automated Sentry Guns
Similar to the sentry guns used in the director's cut of the film Aliens, the camp has machine guns with dual drum magazines operating automatically to fire at movement 'out to 40 yards'. Though the sentry guns in Aliens were actually German MG42 machine guns, these are fake acetylene gas firing mockup guns. In the book, they also had sound suppressors, which had to be taken off to scare off the gorillas.
Zaire border troops use FIM-92A Stinger missile launchers to shoot down the expedition plane.
