The Objective is a 2009 science fiction horror film, directed and co-written by Daniel Myrick. The film stars Jonas Ball, Matthew R. Anderson, and Jon Huertas. The story follows a CIA officer named Benjamin Keynes who, during the ongoing War in Afghanistan, is assigned to a special forces team in order to locate an Afghan cleric.

The following weapons were used in the film The Objective:


Beretta 92FS

CIA officer Benjamin Keynes (Jonas Ball) uses a Beretta 92FS as his sidearm, as well as every member of the special forces team.

Assault Rifles

Colt M4A1 Carbine

CIA officer Benjamin Keynes (Jonas Ball) and the rest of special forces team except for MSG Tanner (Kenny Taylor) can be seen using M4A1 Carbines as their main weapons. Due to a continuity error, they often switch between genuine M4s and "Franken-M4s" which are actually M4 upper receiver units slapped onto Colt AR-15 Sporter II Carbine lower receiver units.

M4 Upper/AR-15 Sporter II Lower

As mentioned previously, many of the special forces team use rifles that are actually M4 upper receivers upon Colt AR-15 Sporter II Carbine lower receiver units. It appears that the armorers didn't have enough genuine M4s (or at least M4s fitted to mil-spec lower receiver units) in inventory, and were thus forced to fit some M4 uppers to an incorrect lower receiver type.

Notice that Sgt Cole's weapon has a "slab-side" lower receiver (found on the AR-15 Sporter II) even though in some scenes, his weapon has the correct A1-style lower receiver with fencing around the magazine release. This indicates that the actor used two different weapons with the same accessories, but different lower receiver types.

Izhmash AK-47

AK-47s are carried by some of the locals in the beginning.
