Saving Private Ryan - Wrong Scope
Right after the guy gets shot by the German Sniper while trying to save the little girl, the American Sniper sets up(okay, maybe not right after). Now, look at his scope. The Army is supposed to be issuing 4x Weaver scopes at that time. The scope on his rifle is an 8x Unertl used by the marines.

first of all,when you see jackson first go around the back of the car, you see him take his 8x scope out of the tube on his back. That is what that tube was for. To hold the 8x scope. And by the way...a unertyl scope is 16x.

. Unertl scopes now are 16x. In WW II they were 4-5x at the most. Plus Jackson would not have been able to switch from the Weaver scope to the Unertl and still keep his zero on the rifle....they didn't have that technology then. Why did Jackson wait for a miracle shot and put a round through the Wehrmacht snipers scope? And one more thing, look at how the German is looking through his scope....he's got the eyepiece jammed into his eye socket. If he would have fired that rifle it would have definitely messed his day up.
