Default New guns in Soldier

Soldier is one of my favorite movies, and I re watched it today.

I noticed a few things that weren't on the page. Namely some rifles during the meeting where they discuss exiling Todd.

I've also noticed that the rocket launcher, flare pistol, and maybe one or two other guns the townspeople had are not on the page. I took a couple screens, and will try to put up screens of the other weapons missing as well.

If anyone can identify the guns I've screened, it would be greatly appreciated.

The one on the left is an AK variant (possibly a Type 56 by the front sight?) and the one on the right is an AR variant. I'd have to see the receivers to be sure, but it's possible they could be the M16A2 and MAK-90 previously noted on the page.

I added another screen of the two rifles. I believe the third rifle in the picture (held by the man in the back) is the previously mentioned MAC-90, but I could be wrong.

I'm gonna take some screens of the other weapons I noticed in a bit.

Looking at it again, the unknown AK has a picatinny rail on it, something that the MAK-90 on the page doesn't have.

And the pistol in the background with that shot of the MAK-90 looks vaguely like a Ruger Mk 2.

Rocket launcher looks like a fictional mock-up to me.

I don't think the AK rifle with the rail is an MAK-90; the front sight is too narrow, AKM style. It's probably some other "post-ban" AK clone.
