A-Team, The - Season 5
Work In Progress
The following weapons were used in Season 5 of the television series The A-Team:
Seen twice during Season 5. First in the episode "The Theory Of Revolution", when the A-Team show General Stockwell just how many weapons they managed to smuggle into the farmhouse without his security detail noticing. The second time in "Alive at Five", as the sidearm of Tommy Tedesco's right hand man. It has a slide-mounted safety/decocker and a round trigger guard, identifying it as a 92SB.
The M1911 and many variants are carried at various times by A-Team members, U.S. Military Police pursuing the A-Team, and various bad guys. A nickel plated version is seen through Seasons 4 and 5.
Detonics Pocket 9
The Detonics Pocket 9 is used in "The Say U.N.C.L.E. Affair", Season 5. It was used again as the sidearm of Alice Heath (Rosalind Chao) in "Point of No Return". One of the hitmen in "Without Reservations" is also seen using it.
Heckler & Koch P7
The Heckler & Koch P7 becomes a prevalent gun in Season 5, used by both the bad guys and the A-Team.
Heckler & Koch P9S
Seen in Season 5 episode "Without Reservations" in the hands of one of the hitmen.
Smith & Wesson 639
The Smith & Wesson 639 is among Hannibal's most prevalent sidearms and appears with both adjustable and fixed sights. It remains his personal sidearm all through Season 5. Charles Jourdan (Roy Dotrice) also uses this weapon in "The Spy Who Mugged Me" (S5E11).
The Star M28 then becomes a frequently seen handgun during Season 5, both in the hands of bad guys and the A-Team.
Colt Trooper Mk III
The Colt Trooper Mk III is another revolver often carried by various characters throughout the show.
Smith & Wesson Model 681
Heckler & Koch HK94A3
The A3 model of the Heckler & Koch HK94 are featured throughout the series. They appear to have the early "Slimline" forearms featured on older versions of the MP5.
The Intratec TEC-9 appears on numerous occasions throughout The A-Team, being among the favorite weapons of the show's bad guys.
The Micro Uzi is used throughout the series by both the A-Team and bad guys.
One of Borofsky's men can be seen with a MP40 in Season 5's "The Say U.N.C.L.E. Affair". It appears to be plastic prop, since it has a filled in front sight and the barrel is visibly bent.
Ruger Mini 14 Stainless version with Folding stock
When the show began its full run in 1984, the producers decided not to have the team use different weapons every week, primarily due to budget concerns. Beginning with its second season, the A-Team favored the Ruger Mini-14 with a factory folding stock in Stainless steel. Contrary to popular belief, these were not the fully automatic Ruger AC556 rifles, but the Semi auto only Ruger Mini 14 with folding stocks. Close examination of the show reveals that the actors are pulling the triggers quickly and only a few spent brass casing as flying out, despite the sound effects of full auto fire. Also the cuts in editing, showing bullet squibs and 'dust hits' against the ground and buildings, created the illusion of full auto firing Ruger rifles. Since Americans had not yet been exposed to 'assault weapon bans' being that this was the mid 1980s, the title 1 classified Ruger rifles were easy to transport across state and local lines with no paperwork hassles. The rifles were actually purchased for the show and were kept on permanent storage in the show's props containers during the show's run.
Norinco Type 56
Heckler & Koch HK91A2

The M16/SP1 is probably the most high-profile firearm in the first 4 seasons, being used by bad guys and members of the A-Team on dozens of occasions. Most of the M16 SP1s used on the show have been fitted with M16A1 flash hiders, in order to stand in for the newer rifle (though some genuine M16A1s also appeared on the show).
