While guarding the ammo dump, the rifles carried are clearly shown to be M16A2s. The US Army officially adopted the M16A2 as the general issue infantry rifle in 1985. While in service before this, it did not exist in any form of this shape in 1979. They would have been using one of several earlier rifles or SMGs instead.
