The weapon they are carrying during the helicopter ride to and the assault on the Police Precinct is the Swedish 9mm SMG m/45. Developed during WWII. Still in use within the Swedish Armed Forces (nowdays in a very small number). Once used by American Special Forces because of its simplicity and reliability. Also manufactured in Egypt on license.

The Swedish 9mm SMG used is by no means realistic. They are both mounted with the special barrel and security equipment used for firing blanks for this actual type of SMG - plastic bullets that disintegrates when fired - only used in combat training. See more »

This movie is great. I don't know how I missed it. All of the actors work well together. It is one of the funniest movies I've seen in a long time. Mr. Redford is a great comedian. Even though I missed it at the movies, thank goodness for satellite.
