Arnold's pistol, The Terminator
Arnold acquires a AMT Hardballer Longslide M1911 with a primitive laser pointer.

The prop seen in the film
Laser pointers were rare at the time during production of the film, and the battery power wasn't that great. Wires ran through his jacket all the way to his other hand where the battery is, where he could activate the laser.

AMT Hardballer Longslide M1911
"Magnetic Accelerator" Rifle, Demolition Man
The weapon Snipes calls a "phaser gun" is actually a mockup of a Heckler & Koch G11. At the time the G11 was still in the experimental stage. A cast was made of a actual G11 prototype that was loaned during production

HK G11
XM-29 OICW "tank buster", Die Another Day
In the film, Col. Moon has a new weapon which he describes as a "tank buster." This is a XM-29 OICW. However, the XM-29 was still in the design phase. In fact the prop seen in the film is a cover over a G36K.

The prop
The G36K.
Only a few parts of the original weapon can be seen in the film such as the magazine, and lower receiver.

A real XM-29 OICW
This weapon is a grenade launcher with a rifle attached underneath.

Armalite AR-7, You Only Live Twice & From Russia With Love
The Armalite Ar-7 is a lightweight combat rifle that can be disassembled and stored into the stock.

Today the weapon is called the Henry US Survival Rifle.
MBA Gyrojet Pistol and Rifle, You Only Live Twice
In the film Tiger Tanaka says that these guns fire rocket-propelled rounds. This is partially true. The Gyrojet series fired small rockets called "Microjets." The Gyrojet series has long since been out of production. The rifles/pistols go for around $1000 with rounds costing around $100.
