Barrett M82A1

Burt Gummer (Michael Gross) packs a .50 BMG Barrett M82A1 as his new anti-Graboid weapon in the series. He sports it in the pilot episode "Feeding Frenzy" (S1E01) and uses it to take out a box a half mile away that is putting out sub-sonic noise that is driving the albino Graboid insane. He also arms himself with it in "A Little Paranoia Among Friends" (S1E07) to hunt the Graboid in New Mexico. Tyler (Victor Browne) ends up picking the rifle up when Burt is attacked and uses it to slay the Graboid with messy results.

Assault Rifles / Carbines

Tyler (Victor Browne) uses a Chinese Norinco Type 56-1 with the stock removed in the episode "Shriek & Destroy" (S1E13) to take care of the Shrieker problem in Juniper, Arizona. It may appear to be an AKM by the attached slanted muzzle brake but upon closer inspection one can clearly see the hooded front sight, triangular rivet pattern, ported gas tube, slab-sided handguards and smooth dust cover.

Heckler & Koch HK93A3

Burt (Michael Gross) retrieves his Heckler & Koch HK93A3 with collapsible stock from his truck in "Night of the Shriekers" (S1E03) upon hearing the sounds of Shriekers in the valley. He uses it to slay the first one he comes across. The weapon can be identified as a HK93 rather than a select-fire HK33 due to the all-metal lower receiver and lack of paddle magazine release. Burt only fires the weapon in semiautomatic, further reinforcing it is a standard HK93.

Magnum Research Desert Eagle Mark XIX

Burt (Michael Gross) carries a nickel finished Desert Eagle Mark XIX pistol chambered in .50 Action Express as a backup sidearm throughout the series.

Twitchell (Dean Norris) also pulls this pistol from Burt's holster and aims it at the mobsters in "Hit and Run" but he drops it as soon as they open fire in their direction. Burt also fires it once in the episode "Flora or Fauna?" (S1E05) to hit a fire extinguisher valve so it'll launch their sand anchor over Plantimal's acid spitting roots.
