Hire Arms is definitely the armory that supplies this show; pretty much any production filmed in South Africa gets all or at least some of its weapons from them. I actually know one of the armorers at that company. He sent me pictures of the gold-plated AK from "Lord of War" (which appear on the IMFDB page for that movie). I haven't talked to him in almost four years, but I'll shoot him a quick email and ask him about this. If he responds, I'll let you guys know.

Also, I should point out that many of the AR-model rifles seen in "Strike Back" and other South African productions seem to have a smaller brass deflector than a normal AR, which is why I suspect that they're simply made by a different manufacturer.
