The American

Factual error: Clooney refers to the rifle as an "M14". The Rüger Mini-14 is a different rifle than the M14 (used e.g. by the Marine Corps prior to the M16).

Factual error: When Clooney and his 'contact' test out the Mini 14, they fire at brushes, showing that the scope is not centered. Instead of making the windage adjustments, they actually adjust the top of the scope, making elevation adjustments.

Trivia

When Jack is entering the bar where he receives a letter from a friend, a song is played on the radio. The song is 'Tu vuò fà l'americano' by Italian singer Renato Carosone. It means 'You want to do American' or 'You're an American wannabe', a reference to Jack, who is American, and of course the title of the movie.
