Smith & Wesson Model 36

One of the CIA agents is armed with a snub nose revolver that appears to be a Smith & Wesson Model 36. After Booker disarmed him, Murray Saunders (Lloyd Haynes) takes the revolver. It is seen very briefly and blurry.

AK-Style Assault Rifle

During the night battle many North Vietnamese soldiers are armed with AK-style rifles. They aren't seen clear enough to identify the exact model. Where the gun is seen best, the magazine looks strangely slim, similar to Adler-Jäger AP-80, but it can be only an illusion (and in fact AP-80 didn't exist in 1978).

An AK is seen against the blasing fire.

Mosin Nagant Rifle

What appear to be Mosin Nagant Rifles are seen in hands of North Vietnamese soldiers.

During the scene in the ski resort a female sniper (Virginia Wing) uses a rifle that is covered with camouflage wrapping so that the weapon itself is not seen.
