I am writing a paper on the movie and how realistic/accurate it was. I was wondering if anyone could tell me about the under folder AK's the terrorists were using in the beginning. I was thinking that they were Yugoslavian but I may be wrong. If I am right, would Palestinian terrorists be using Yugos in 1972? I hope not because that would be a perfect inaccuracy to point out my paper. I would love to use something about guns in it...

I haven't seen it, but look to see that they were using AK-47s not 74s. The 74s tend to have orangey bakelite magazines.

Other than that, most AKs look alike, so it would be pretty hard to tell unless there were up-close shots of the markings.

Edit: After a quick look at IMFDB, it appears that they used nondescript AK-47s.
Evidently some parts of the film were "spiced up" to make for better entertainment, so you may want to look those up and use those, rather than the guns.

You might also watch the documentary "One Day in September", which is about the situation in Munich and has a lot of footage from the actual event.

Not really sure about the specific question in regard to the AKs, but I thought Munich was a good film.

I think I remember noticing a Beretta 92 in that film and noting to myself that the Beretta 92 hadn't been produced then. Perhaps it was a Beretta 951 which looks similar, but I'm pretty sure it was a model 92. Anyone else see that?

If that particular type of AK had been developed by then, it could have ended up in their hands. Weapons have a way of crossing borders.

Theres a Beretta 92 on the cover of the DVD which had, incidentally, not been produced at the time the movie was set.

^^ I forget, but the 92 doesn't appear in the actual film, correct?
