Revealing Mistakes
A squad of fedayeen fire single shots from Kalashnikov (AK-47 style) rifles and cycle each round by hand. However, no standard military variant of this rifle has a single-shot manual-operation mode except for post-1967 Yugoslavian versions adapted for rifle-grenade launching, and the movie rifles lack the distinctive squared-off gas block and grenade sight used on these guns. The movie characters appear to be either firing blanks without the appropriate blank-firing adapters to allow the rifles to cycle properly, or cycling dummy rounds by hand for dramatic effect with CGI muzzle flashes added in post-production to simulate firing.
