Heckler & Koch P7

Pham Van Kwan (Peter Kwong) uses a Heckler & Koch P7 to intimidate a Vietnamese neighborhood. During his time in Vietnam Lee Van Minh (Robert Kim) uses a suppressed P7 pistol to dispatch a VC (anachronistic as it was not produced until 1979). One is also seen in a US Army armory.

Mossberg 500

During his job as a rancher John Steele (Martin Kove) uses a Mossberg 500 to scare the cattle off the range. One is also seen in a patrol car John steals.

Mossberg 500 Bullpup

During an operation back in Vietnam John Steele (Martin Kove) uses a Mossberg 500 Bullpup with a reflex sight and a launching bayonet which Gen. Bon Soong Kwan (Soon-Tek Oh) later takes. The weapon is anachronistic for the Vietnam War as it was not made until 1985.

Mossberg 590

One of John's squadmates in Vietnam carries a Mossberg 590. John himself later uses it to threaten some Vietnamese mobsters and said mobsters use them during a drug deal. It is anachronistic to Vietnam as it was not made until 1987. On that note this is the earliest appearance of a Mossberg 590.

LaFrance Specialties M16K

Most soldiers in Kwan's squad have what appear to be LaFrance Specialties M16Ks. They are anachronistic as the first M16K was not produced until 1982.

Actual M16 Rifles are used during Lee's funeral but cannot be truly ID'd due to no shot of the right side of the receiver.

MGC M-16 Model Gun Corp Replica Rifle

While the right side of the receiver is never seen to confirm this all the M16 rifles that do not fire in the film can be assumed to be MGC M-16 Model Gun Corp Replica Rifles.

Manville 25mm Projectile Launcher

John grabs what appears to be a Manville 25mm Projectile Launcher with an extended barrel from an Army base and later uses it against Kwan. This launcher is similar to the ones seen in The Dogs of War and The A-Team.
