The A-Team

Show generally

Continuity mistake: John "Hannibal" Smith's rank changes from to Colonel to Lieutenant Colonel in different shows. In some of the early episodes we see him in uniform as Lt. Col. but in later episodes such as when they are on trial, Smith is wearing the rank of Full Colonel.

Mister Ed

Mexican Slayride (2) - S1-E2

Continuity mistake: When the team is escaping with Al, BA swipes a truck. After loading everyone in, he puts a pin in to hold the gate on the driver's side. When they meet up with Face & Murdock at the helicopter, Hannibal jumps out, pulls one pin from the passenger's side, and the gate swings down.

The Rabbit Who Ate Las Vegas - S1-E7

Continuity mistake: As the chopper that is piloted by Murdock comes down over and behind the thug's car, you can see the the man in the left seat has a ball cap and brown jacket on, but the man in the right seat has a dark sweater, shades, and headphones on. In the close up, it's Murdock and the Professor.

Movie Nut

The Out-of-Towners - S1-E8

Continuity mistake: When the A-Team visits the bad guys' Sugar Hill Club, after shooting the place up and dumping the garbage truck, BA gets out of the garbage truck leaving the door open, the next shot the door is closed, the next shot the door is open and closes, and for the final shot as they exit it's open.

West Coast Turnaround - S1-E10

Continuity mistake: During the scene when the A-Team drops watermelons on the pickup truck, the windshield shatters. The next shot after this, the truck flips over, but the windshield is intact.

One More Time - S1-E11

Continuity mistake: As the bolt flies toward the fuel can, you can see the pre-cut spot where it will hit. Then as it hits the canister changes completely as the dark strip where the bolt hits disappears. (00:41:40)

Movie Nut

A Nice Place to Visit - S1-E14

Continuity mistake: After the Watkins Brothers run the A-Team Van off the road and the van flips; the Van suddenly becomes a Ford Econline van with Stock wheels, very much different from the original red turbine mag wheels on the GMC. (00:19:20)

Good Job!

Answer: Mostly M-14's. Occaisionally M-16's or Ingram Model 10's. http://world.guns.ru/smg/smg00-e.htm

Grumpy Scot

Answer: They never use an M14. The nearly always use a Ruger Mini 14, a totally different weapon.

stiiggy

Answer: The machine guns primarily used were M60's or M60D's. Although there were a lot of sub-machine guns used too, like the Mac-10. For some reason other answers are talking about rifles used in the show.

Bishop73

For the reason is because most people don't know the difference between an automatic rifle, a sub-machine gun, and a machine gun. I.e. Die Hard "Ho-ho-ho now we have a machine gun" - actually a HK MP5K. M60D's are for helicopter door gunners. I suspect you mean an M60E3, with the pistol foregrip.

stiiggy

You suspect wrong. I did mean M60D since they were seen being used as helicopter door guns.

Bishop73

Only in the stock footage in the intro though.

lionhead

Yes, because the question was asking what machine guns were used, but didn't cite a specific episode or anything, so I was being thorough.

Bishop73

The question is what machine guns were used by the A-team. Not that one.

lionhead

So you think the question was what machine gun was used by the A-Team but not by the A-Team?

Bishop73

No. The A-Team never used the M60D anywhere in the series, you only see it in the stock footage of the intro. And the question was what machine guns the A-team used.

lionhead

Which is stock footage of the A-Team.

Bishop73

That is most definitely not the A-team in the helicopter, they are just showing footage from the Vietnam war.
