Spaceballs is a 1987 science-fiction spoof directed by Mel Brooks and starring Bill Pullman, John Candy, Rick Moranis, Mel Brooks (in dual roles), Daphne Zuniga and the voice of Joan Rivers. While ostensibly a spoof of the Star Wars films, Spaceballs also spoofs many other sci-fi franchises including Star Trek, Alien and Planet of the Apes.
The following weapons were used in the film Spaceballs:
Spaceball guards use Calico M100s to impersonate space weapons in the film. Lone Starr (Bill Pullman) and Barf (John Candy) steal two rifles and use them, Barf's running out of ammo in the process. Princess Vespa (Daphne Zuniga) uses Lone Starr's to take out a group of enemy troopers.

"Hey! You can't park here!" "Yeah, can't you guys read? No parking!"
Two guards (Tony Griffin and Rick Ducommun
) stand with their modified Calico M100's.
After taking the above guards' uniforms and guns, Barf and Lone Starr rescue the girls, but get caught in a firefight.
"Hey! Those are the guys who stole our uniforms!" "Yeah and beat the shit out of us too!"
The two guards from earlier catch up to the gang and open fire.

"I'm not shooting this thing, I hate guns!"
Princess Vespa is handed Lone Starr's Calico as he tries to open the locked door.
"..Son of a Bitch!"
After getting some of her hair shot off, Princess Vespa revises her outlook on guns and mows down a wave of guards, the other three looking at her in surprise.
Intratec TEC-9 (Modified)
Modified Intratec TEC-9 machine pistols appear to be the standard issue sidearm for Spaceball officers. They are shown with barrel shrouds and without magazines. They are also never fired or even drawn in the film, so it's possible these are just replicas or toys.

) with the same type of sidearm in his belt as he angrily confronts the stunt doubles.
M1 Carbine (Modified)
The debris from Spaceball One lands on the Planet of the Apes, and the two chimps that come to investigate appear to have modified M1 Carbines (assuming they are using the same props from Planet of the Apes).

, with standard stock, from Auto-Ordnance (affiliated with Kahr Arms and Thompson Arms). Chambered in .30 Carbine.
The Apes might have modified M1 carbines in the scabbards on their saddles.
