Sniper: Reloaded is a 2011 American action thriller that is the fourth installment in the Sniper film series. Billy Zane returns as Richard Miller, the former NSC sniper who was the protégé of Master Gunnery Sergeant Thomas Beckett (Tom Berenger) in the original film . In Sniper: Reloaded, Miller travels to the Congo to track down a rebel sniper being hunted down by Brandon (Chad Michael Collins), a young Marine sergeant who happens to be Beckett's son. The film was produced in South Africa, so many of weapons seen in the film are of that country's origin. Collins would return as Brandon in three more sequels: 2014's Sniper: Legacy, the fifth installment in the series (which also featured the return of Tom Berenger), 2016's Sniper: Ghost Shooter and 2017's Sniper: Ultimate Kill.
The following weapons were used in the film Sniper: Reloaded:

Vektor R5 (modified to resemble AKS-47)
The rebels use what appear to be at first glance AKS-47 rifles. However, based on their 5.56mm magazines and angled Valmet-style receiver design, these rifles are actually Vektor R5 rifles modified to resemble Kalashnikov rifles. Similar weapons have appeared in other films made in South Africa, such as District 9 or Strike Back.
