The following weapons were used in the film Dog Day Afternoon:
Rifles & Carbines
Sonny Wortzik (Al Pacino) uses a M1 Carbine as his main weapon during the bank robbery, sometimes handing it off to Sal when he would go to talk to the police outside. Since Sonny was a Vietnam veteran, it is possible this was an artifact from his war years. Several NYPD officers surrounding the bank also carry M1 Carbines, some with extended 30-round magazines.
