    Well first of all your list is well outdated. Just off the top of my head in the TV category you have to add The Walking Dead, and then there was a mini series in the last couple years about the mob in L.A. during the late fourties The character in kind played by Jon Bernthal who also played Manny in the Pacific and was also in the first two season of the Walking Dead. And then there is Tour of Duty and China Beach as well as M.A.S.H. And back to movies how about Windtalkers and Hell is for Heros .
    And then we have to go back to TV. The BAR operator was Kirby not Caje who shot his M1icon left handed and Kirby reloads often. Oh and if you notice in most firefights Lt. Handly seldom puts his rifle to his shoulder and almost always hits what he is shooting and as often as not it has a type three barrel band with the bayo lug. One last Combat trivia the Thompson that Saunders carries while the squad is just walking around was made of balsa wood so Vic Morrow wouldn't have to lug a thirteen pound weapon around.

    Oh and if you watch Clint Eastwood in Pale rider he does the cylinder change at least twice the second coming as he is walking down the street for the final gunfight.

    i believe Lt Hannley(Rick Jason) from combat carried the m1 because it was lighter than the thomason. i think that m1 was used to end his life in real life. Some sort of health issue and he took his life with the M1icon,also the combat series was filmed on the same lot as Andy Griffin show

    Same lot maybe but a different back lot. It was the MGM back lot and so many battles fought in that same village. After the fourth season MGM cut off the contract because of all the damage. Losing their lot was one of the things that killed the series. the other two was the switch to color film in the fifth season and money. Both Jason and Vic Morrow were under paid compared to other series at the time. The producers realized that if both Morrow and Jason were in the same episode they had to pay the both so through the last season they were seldom in the same episode.
    I have the whole series and have watched all the extras.
