Default Help ID-ing guns in an anime.

I went back to the Mezzo Forte page (which was the first article I posted on IMFDB) to post the remaining weapons I missed the first time. I'm currently having a little difficulty identifying some of the guns, and I was hoping you guys could help me out.

The weapons I couldn't ID are on the Mezzo Forte page,
http://www.imfdb.org/index.php/Mezzo_Forte
listed under "Unidentified".

Also, if you catch any mistakes I made, I'd appreciate it if you could point them out.

The M16 looks like an A2 by the rear sight. But I haven't seen the anime, so I don't know if he fires it on burst or full auto therein.

The thug gun is an H&K P7. You've got a mismatched screenshot there, too, because the first of those three grabs only shows the Tokarev.

Re: that M16, it was fired in full auto in the anime. But then again, it could be an A2 (incorrectly) fired in full auto.
Thanks for the help, dude.

The "Haruda's Handgun" is a Browning Hi-Power I believe.
The other is an early M1911(not the A1) as noted by the very long trigger. It also has a strangely shaped hammer, which might just be how it's drawn.

I went ahead and changed picture and description of the M16 to M16A2 (though technically this would be an A3, not an A2, but it's IMFDB policy not to distinguish between the two for filming reasons).
