Another one of my favorite goofs is when a gun cocking sound is heard, but the gun is not cocked.

The Doc is out now.

You didn't see him swap his scope back and forth throughout the movie?
I remember when they assaulted a machine gun the medic removed the scope to use it as a telescope. Later, when they were pinned down in a town, the sniper adjusts his Unertl scope by twisting on the viewing objective.

Different subject: The Longest Day. One of our paratroopers hears a noise, clicks his clicker. He hears a "clicker" in response, steps out and is shot. The next scene shows a German operating his Mauser 98, making the same sound as the clicker. I've never had a Mauser 98 make that sound.

Ive heard that is a true story. Our troops used the clickers. When they heard the Germans chamber a round, it sounded like three clicks. When they stepped out the Germans shot them.
