The following weapons were used in the film In the Line of Duty: Ambush in Waco:

Submachine Guns

Heckler & Koch HK94A2 (Chopped and Converted)

BATF agents are largely armed with Heckler & Koch HK94A2s modified to resemble MP5A2s during the raid on the Branch Davidian compound. The weapons have had their 16-inch barrels chopped and are equipped with Surefire forends and double clamped magazines.

The "Fake MP5", the Heckler & Koch HK94A2 Converted to full auto fire, shortened barrel and added third firing position on trigger pack - 9x19mm. This version was used in many films during the 1980s and 1990s.
Special Agent Robert Williams wielding a HK94A2 during a practice run for the raid. The lack of barrel lugs and the paddle magazine release, as well as a different trigger pack, differentiate this weapon from an actual MP5A2.
An interesting note is that all of the ATF agents are firing their HK94A2s in semi automatic- possibly because the guns were not converted to automatic fire.
Special Agent Conway Lebleu (Glenn Morshower) fires his HK94A2.


M16 (SP1)

M16 (SP1) rifles with M16A1 birdcage flash hiders are seized by BATF agents after they arrest a New Orleans weapons dealer. Branch Davidian Jason (Neal McDonough) is also armed with a M16 (SP1) with a 30 round magazine during the BATF raid on Mount Carmel.

Koresh is shown modifying a M16A2 with a hellfire trigger to increase its rate of fire. Later, Jason patrols Mount Carmel's perimeter with a Starlight scope-equipped M16A2. Koresh also has a M16A2 slung over his shoulder when he watches the ATF units approach the compound. Other Branch Davidians also are shown with M16A2s during the gun battle with the ATF agents.

Koresh hands Jason a M16A2 modified with a hellfire trigger. The hellfire trigger is a device that disengages the trigger release spring, which combined with bump firing techniques increases the weapon's rate of fire.

Colt CAR-15

CAR-15 carbines are seen on the gun racks at a gun store and in the weapons room of Mount Carmel.

The flash hider is a smaller diameter copy of the XM-177 and has no sound suppression qualities and is permanently welded onto the barrel to make it legal length for over the counter gun store sales.
