Agreed. For me, Pacino's FNC was more memorable that his Colt in that movie.

As for distinctive movie guns, I think you have to separate it into two different categories. There are a lot of distinctive guns because they are essentially fake things that use a real gun as a base, like the M41A, the Morita, Star Wars blasters, Blade Runner pistol, stuff like that. The trickier and perhaps more interesting to think about category are things that are meant to be real guns but have been customised in distinctive ways. Stuff like the AMT Hardballer from termiantor, the Cleric Berettas from Equilibrium, Delta carbines from Black Hawk down, stuff like that.
I forgot about the FNC with the M16 flash hider. If you ever watch TFBTV, Alex C had one just like it, and everyone who saw it likely recognized it as such. The 733s, the Galil, they're not distinctive.

In other Heat-related news, the Firearm Blog ranks the semiauto pistols from that movie.
